Excellent photography and unusual interest.
21 March 2005 | by (West Sussex, England) – See all my reviews

The storyline is typical of post second world war drama, with an inventor's electrical creation being stolen by his wife. Jack Warner gives the film strength with a solid performance as a police Inspector, and John McCallum gives a good account of himself as the inventor.

This film scores heavily with magnificent snow scenes, the mass of reindeer, being chased by wolves, and the eagles then combating with wolves. The avalanche brings you the power of nature.

At first, I could not place Nadia Gray, but then I remembered her from earlier films.

The storyline appears to drift between a Cold war story, a detective investigation, and a broken marriage.

It could have been better, but Valley of Eagles was a good effort.
