Midnight Eagle (Middonaito Īguru) Reviews

An unexpectedly personal thriller that thrives on complexity.

Los Angeles CityBeat

Poorly structured, filled with coincidences and plot holes, and laced with scenes of more-than-usually cloying sentimentality, this is oh!-so-far from the best representative of current Japanese cinema or of Asian cinema in general.

A stupor-inducing, would-be thriller from Japan whose sporadic action and inept storytelling is as generic as its title.

Like a series of subplot ships slowly meandering downstream to a final narrative focal point, Midnight Eagle has to be one of the most languid political thrillers ever conceived.

Maitland McDonagh
TV Guide's Movie Guide

This is pure big-budget formula filmmaking, from the morally compromised hero who regains his self-respect to the spunky reporters, grim military strategists, winsome child, glib political posturing and tense countdown to apparently inevitable disaster.

There are many new Japanese movies that deserve a stateside release. Why this hapless mess beat them out is a question that deserves an answer. (I won't hold my breath waiting.)

A personal and political melodrama with perfunctory gunplay and explosions.

As they say in Japan: sugoi! Cool!

It's frustrating that Midnight Eagle is more concerned with puffed-up nationalist pride than logic. How did five characters' paths all converge at the exact same minute anyway?

Film Journal International

Less an adventure than a confused message drama about Japanese military preparedness, it will have trouble building even a niche audience.

After early hints of potential Schwarzenegger-ish goofiness, Midnight Eagle settles into near-complete torpor.

The film's brisk pacing can't hide the fuzzy logic of the tenuously structured, convoluted script.
