Review of the Week

14th June 2017

Well done to Alex (Year 4) afor his review of The Eagle Huntress




The Eagle Huntress is about a young girl, the age of 13-ish. All the men in family were eagle hunters not once was there ever a woman. Let alone her family but in the whole country! Though she is very fortunate and is better than many, many men, she is practically the best eagle hunter or huntress in a long time. Many people do not follow this woman but she knows it is in her family blood.

The girl's father never stopped believing in her he knew that it was he destiny. This movie is set near Russia so it was very snowy but there was scene it where it was just sand which was at the tournament, II found this part more intriguing. Though when it end it's just the beginning.

This movie was a documentary film which I find quite fascinating. The snow and mountains made it have a fantastic set of scenery. My favourite character was the girl because she shows no fear and will protect the ones she loves which is quite aspiring. My favourite part was when they were at the tornament and the tension grew to see if she was the victor.

I would recommend this film to almost every one it has a bit of everyone's taste I'm assuming. Although it does have subtitles, so just make sure you can read quite well.
