Excellent adventure....
25 October 2009 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

'Order of the Eagle' is one of A.I.P best pictures and probably one of the best action - adventure low budget movies of all time. It's all about teenage scout who found in the woods secret government project. Some people are very interested to get that object and they leave no survivors. That's where the action begins and I can tell you honestly, there is no chance to be bored. The movie was made by Thomas Baldwin, one of the rednecks from cult classic 'Deadly Prey'and honestly Baldwin did really great job with limited budget. Frank Stallone is listed as main character but in fact he had very small 'behind the desk' part, just like Joe Spinell in 'Operation Warzone'. He probably was there only because producers wanted someone with bigger name to sell movie better. If you are David A. Prior fan you will see many known faces. William Zipp ('Deadly Prey', 'Mankillers' etc) was great as mountain man and Nam veteran. About bad guys - the other reviewer mentioned David Marriott was great. Well he wasn't and that was a major disappointment for me. I remember Dave Marriott from David Prior's movies where he was just great especially as a bad guy. In 'Order of the Eagle' he had long tongue but nothing else. I expected some fight scenes with him but sadly there wasn't anything like that. The other lead bad guy Leo (David Roger Harris) was the same quality. Plenty talking,less action. Fortunately there was one man ready to save a show

  • David Campbell (For some reason listed as Campell - probably some


kind of mistake). David as always did awesome job. His role wasn't very important for the movie (he was one of the mercenaries) but his creation was. I have seen many movies with David and I can tell you he can't act bad. He was born to play bad guys and in 'Order of the Eagle' he was one of the most memorable characters. What else we have in 'Order of the Eagle'? Some nice death scenes, some of them pretty gory, some good fight sequences and nice music theme. The plot is not so simple like you might think after first few minutes. It was one of the nicest 91 minutes of my life. The movie is pretty rare and available on DVD only in Germany (but includes English audio). I was lucky enough to find a VHS tape which is pretty rare in my country and just ordered DVD. This movie is worth it! 8 out of 10
