A wall? In this setting the relationship between Marcus and Esca grows from mutual suspicion to respect. As they come into conflict with the unyielding local population and discover the secrets of the past, they are for a while forced to reverse their roles as master and slave in order to survive. Inevitably, in the absence of more traditional romantic interest, there's a certain unobtrusive homoerotic aspect to the relationship. Without undue questioning The Eagle admirably embraces certain unfashionable virtues of what might be considered a Roman brand — duty, honour, filial piety.
And it does so in the context of recreating a distant world the production designer Michael Carlin, who worked on The Last King of Scotland , In Bruges and The Duchess , does a fine job on the historical ambience and relating it to our own times.

But The Eagle is very specific in taking a more realistic view and identifying America as the new imperialists with the casting of Tatum, Sutherland and other north Americans as the Romans, and having that striking British actor Mark Strong adopt an American accent to play a key survivor of the Ninth that Marcus encounters in Scotland.
A coda back in Rome concludes the film on a facile note generally absent elsewhere, but this is a minor flaw in a most enjoyable film. Facebook Twitter Pinterest.
