Product Description

Product Description

Based on Jack Higgins� best-selling novel, The Eagle Has Landed is the story of a unit commander sent to England during WWII to kidnap Prime Minister Winston Churchill and bring him back to Berlin

Amazon.ca

This 1976 adventure story set in World War II concerns a Nazi plot to kidnap Churchill from his retreat--or murder him if need be. The large, great cast and a director, John Sturges, who's been down this road of ensemble action before (The Magnificent Seven, The Great Escape) make this project exciting if not as memorable as Sturges's more famous works. The weak ending doesn't help. -- Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Michael Caine is superb as a German (not Nazi) officer in charge of a mission into England in a plot to kidnap Churchill. The action is fast and lively. Donald Sutherland, an Irishman whose disdain of England for its Irish subjugation brings him to be allied with Caine, supports Caine splendidly. Of course the plot fails, but what's nice about the movie is that the German soldiers are not portrayed as the brutal, totally evil people most movies depict. They are shown to be human, and actually quite nice. The movie shows that not all Germans were Nazis, and it should be applauded for not taking the typical Hollywood direction.

An all star cast (Michael Caine, Robert Duvall, Donald Sutherland) really makes this WW2 movie about German paratroopers landing in England in 1943 to kidnap Winston Churchill and return with him to Germany. Much of the movie is edge of your seat suspense. I might have preferred if the discovery of the plot had been responded to by British troops as opposed to an American Army unit considering it took place in England. Donald Sutherland is great as the Irish agent who assists the Germans.

This is a great war movie that is seldomly made anymore. It has a captivating plot, great acting by some major stars and good action scenes that make this a very watchable and interesting movie.
The plot begins with SS Leader Heinrich Himmler (portrayed excellently by Donald Plesence) agreeing to an idea that has a group of elite German Commando's to try to kidnap British Leader Winston Churchill.
The group of elite Fallschrimjager's (German Paratroopers/Commando's) is headed by Kurt Steiner (Michael Caine), a noble and gentlemanly officer. He is chosen due to his superior ability to get the mission done and also because he is in "bad favor" with his superiors by striking an SS Officer who was trying to shoot a Jewish girl who tried to escape the concentration camp trains.
The commando's parachute successfully into England, with the help of an Irish Republican Army spy (Donald Sutherland). The rest of the cast of the movie do a great job. I won't give away the rest of the movie, but it is excellent!
From Robert Duvall to Larry Hagman, there are some major stars in this movie, and I am suprized that it is not more well known. The book is great (Jack Higgins is the author), and the movie follows the book pretty good throughout.
Overall a highly recommended movie!

Definitely a good movie. However, I think that if you go into it blind (without having read the book), it will be a little confusing for the first 20 minutes or so. However, once the characters and plot are introduced, the movie can stand on it's own.
Michael Caine is very believable as a German officer. Donald Sutherland is a natural for an Irish Rogue.
The only reason I give it four stars instead of five is bacause of the first 15 - 20 minutes.

At long last, one of my favourite "fictional" World War II films is finally out on DVD and the transfer is excellent all round.
The 1970's was a period where war movies were filled with mercenaries, commando's and full steam ahead action....and "The Eagle has Landed" is no exception, but a better told tale than many others !
John Sturges shows once again why he is one sharpest action / suspense film directors around with this exciting filming of the very popular Jack Higgins novel. What makes this film so enjoyable, and able to withstand repeated viewings is the talented cast at the centre of this twisting tale of spies and espionage. Kurt Steiner (Michael Caine) is the disgraced leader of a group of crack German paratroopers that have been exiled to operate an MTB boat in the English Channel. Opportuntity comes their way in the form of Colonel Radl (Robert Duvall), with an incredible plot to secretly parachute into England and kidnap Winston Churchill from a country retreat. Donald Pleasance turns in a chilling performance as SS leader, Heinrich Himmler...Donald Sutherland in fine form as the IRA ally, Liam Devlin...Larry Hagman is the pompous and foolhardy Colonel Pitts and Treat Willians (in his first movie role) as the wiser and more wary American Ranger, Captain Clark. Jenny Agutter contributes the love interest as Molly Prior, and Jean Marsh puts in a cold blooded display as the Nazi sympathasier, Joanna Grey.
"The Eagle has Landed" has some great twists and turns and never lets the viewer relax as the story holds a keen balance between action, suspense, romance and tragedy. Highly recommended for those who like intrigue and adventure in their WWII movies !!
A highly entertaining and different WWII film that stands out from the rest.

The title doesn't refer to those infamous words from Apollo 11, but the WWII action thriller book written by Jack Higgins. Michael Caine heads an elite German paratrooper group, fallen out of favor, but given a chance at redemption & honor during a top secret mission to kidnap Winston Churchill, in order to negotiate a better surrender for Germany. Donald Sutherland is an Irishman working as a Nazi spy, who finds love when he least needs it. The plot takes off when the paratroopers take over an English town on Churchill's tour route. Robert Duvall & Donald Pleasence represent the Nazi hiarchy, while Treat Williams & Larry Hagman head up the American troops stationed near the English village. John Sturges ("Magnificent Seven," "The Great Escape") manages to drive over some plotholes with non-stop action & suspense, and even manages to keep the outcome in doubt. Caine is sympathetic, as a man of honor trying to give his men an opportunity to go out as soldiers, while Sutherland manages to keep his Irish rogue interesting, even when you hate him. The audience will find its own loyalties shifting from the Germans to the English and back. This a seriously under-rated thriller. The DVD is a great transfer, restored in its orginal widescreen, the best way to view this action-packed film.
