As darkness falls, the last dragon will choose its rider.
In his homeland of Alagaesia, a farm boy happens upon a dragon's egg -- a discovery that leads him on a predestined journey where he realized he's the one person who can defend his home against an evil king.
I've always had this belief that if you start a film you should see it through to the end no matter the quality. I've stuck to that fairly rigidly over the years with very few exceptions. A couple of days ago I was broken after twenty minutes of The Internship by Vince Vaughn being Vince Vaughn and the cloying product placement of a certain web browser. Half an hour into this and I was toying with the idea of the off switch, but two failures in a couple of days would be embarrassing, so I persevered.
Now I normally really enjoy watching the likes of John Malkovich and Jeremy Irons who usually elevate even the dodgiest of films. Unfortunately for…
This movie gets a lot of shit. I'm not going to say I don't understand why.
But what I will say is this:
The minute I publicly announce that I hated a movie about a hot guy who can do magic and hangs out with dragons...please call 911.
terrible is too kind
A message from 2012 to the future:
If you ever start liking this bullshit, you are forbidden to use computers for a whole year and you can only read Lewis Carroll, Tolkien, Monteiro Lobato and L. Frank Baum.
With all my love,
One star for the cool Saphira design and Cate Blanchett's voice. Other than that... god, why.
By the numbers, albeit with a great supporting cast. In fairness, Arran absolutely loved it and was really disappointed that there's not a sequel to follow on from the obvious sequel set-up at the end of this film.
1h30 de mauvaise contrefaçon, une catastrophe qui ne respecte pas tout le travail de Paolini mais dont l'imposture pourra peut-être satisfaire les enfants ou ceux qui ne connaissent pas l'oeuvre ...
Crappy childhood update
It certainly isn't the worst of the young adult fantasy glut that came out of the success of Lord of the Rings in the early 2000s. There is just so much nonsensical plotting going on though.
-The dragon hatches after thousands of years and grows into an adult in a matter of hours.
-Garret Hedlund literally comes out of nowhere to join our merry trio over halfway through the movie.
-I actually thought for years that Christopher Egan was the lead. But, no, only the lead's cousin who sadly exits the movie ten minutes in. --John Malkovich is in this for some reason as the big bad that has nothing to do.
-His dark wizard underling can conjure up a…
one of the laziest films i've ever seen
christ this is shit. 1 star for the dragon
I pretty terrible movie in all regards, even despite the fact that it butchers the book on so many levels.
This movie wasn't accurate to the original books, and I even remember thinking that was weird as a kid. "What!? How are they going to make that work? That hasn't happened in the books yet!" Some things bnever change... The movie itself was alright but overall forgettable.
Legend has it that if you type 'Eragon remake' into Google and lean really close to the speakers, you'll hear a voice whisper 'fuck you' in the Ancient Language.
