Atom User Reviews for The Eagle Huntress
This genuinely affecting film amps up its feelgoodism with spasms of glib dramatics and shamelessly soupy music.
A stunning location and a winning character are cannily deployed to create a likeable film in which audiences will need little persuasion to cheer the triumph of the underdog.
Visually, the results are quite often striking, and they are also sharply cut together. But there’s a nagging suspicion throughout that there’s been more preparation for especially the set-pieces than would normally be the case on a documentary.
