Eye of the Eagle

An action-adventure for older kids, "Eye of the Eagle" plays like a classic matinee film in the Robin Hood tradition. Dubbed versions should be an easy sell. Set in the 13th century, pic has a king going off to war and sending his young son, Valdemar, to stay with a bishop, Eskil, in the latter's castle. But Eskil plans to overthrow the king and claim the crown himself, so Valdemar and his new-found friend Aske escape and try to reach the king to warn him. When they finally do, it's too late: The king is captured and Eskil threatens to hang Valdemar if his father does not step down.

With:
Valdemar ..... Nijas Ornbak-Fjeldmose Aske ..... Lasse Baunkilde The King ..... Lars Lohmann Bishop Eskil ..... Bjorn Granath Signe ..... Maj Bockbahn Bjerregaard One-eyed Knight ..... Bjorn Floberg

In his feature debut, helmer Peter Flinth makes an excellent job of creating a classic adventure movie, with an easy-to-follow plot and violence that’s never gory. Production values are good, making fine use of the marshes and forests of Scotland (doubling for Scandinavia).
