Storyline

Eric Liddell may have won gold for the United Kingdom and possessed a lilting Highland brogue, but he was born in China and lived more than half his life there evangelizing and teaching. On Wings of Eagles is everything you ever wanted to know about what happened to Liddell - who famously refused to run an Olympic race on a Sunday to honor God - after the 1924 Olympics when he returned to China, the home of his heart. But Eric's beloved homeland is about to be occupied by Imperial Japan. Written by AnonymousB

This is more of a TV movie
18 March 2018 | by thekingsdomSee all my reviews

I didn't rate this at all sadly. How some people can give this a perfect 10 is beyond me. I wanted to like this film but sadly it was quite cheesy and gooey. It's one of those films that goes through the 'tick box' list. We have the evil Japanese, the perfect Chinese, sweet, smiling, innocent children, soppy music and perfect tick box characters. It's not a terrible film, it's just a very average film. To me, this was a December 27th Christmas period 3pm TV film. Watchable but also entirely forgettable.
