VALLEY OF EAGLES starts off as a typical and oh-so-British spy thriller, with a scientist inventing a new type of machine that will serve mankind. Before long his secrets are stolen after he's betrayed by his own wife and assistant, so he must give chase. Where the film differs from the ordinary thriller template is that the action shifts to the snowbound locales of Sweden and an outdoor adventure follows.
Be warned: if you're an animal lover, you'll probably hate this film. Adventures undertaken by the central characters include encounters with reindeer, wolves, and eagles, and plenty of the poor beasts are executed or killed by the time the credits roll. However, the stark black and white photography is a nice match for the icy backdrop, and the film looks great at least. There's even some not-bad avalanche footage achieved on what is obviously a low budget. Watch out for Christopher Lee's cameo as a detective.
