Excellent crime-adventure drama
13 April 2005 | by See all my reviews

Valley of Eagles recently came on BBC2 one afternoon so I set the video and was certainly pleased I did.

A scientist who has invented a machine that can convert sound waves into electrical energy has this stolen by his wife and assistant and this results in a chase across the frozen wastes of Lapland. The scientist teams up with a copper and they join a party who is transporting reindeer the same route. They face many dangers on the way: blizzards, a pack of hungry wolves and avalanches. A lot of the wolves are killed by some eagles that Laplanders use for killing instead of guns to reduce the risk of an avalanche which would result in their village being destroyed. The scientist catches up with his wife and assistant and escape and once the assistant stars shooting a gun, this results in an avalanche and both are killed but the village is safe. The scientist also finds a new love at the end.

Valley of Eagles contains some fantastic scenery in Lapland and has a good score too. Animal lovers probably won't enjoy this though. The snow scenes remind me of the Wilderness Family movies.

The cast includes Jack Warner (Dixon of Dock Green, The Quatermass Xperiment), John McCallum, Anthony Dawson and Nadia Gray. Horror legend Christopher Lee (Dracula) has a small part as a copper.

Valley of Eagles is certainly worth seeing, just for that scenery. Excellent.

Rating: 4 stars out of 5.
