REVIEW – Eagles Over London (1961)

VideoVista have my review of Enzo G. Castellari’s Eagles Over London.

Castellari is probably best known to wider audiences as the guy who directed the original Inglorious Bastards (1978).  Much like that film, Eagles Over London is a part of the Euro War or Macaroni Combat sub-genre of Second World War action movies made in the 1970s.  What most fascinated me about Eagles Over London was the extent to which its low budgets and Italian sets and actors ensured that the film effectively reinvents Wartime London as 1960s Rome.  A Strange but entertaining film.
