In a mythical time, a teenage boy becomes a dragon rider with the help of a wise old man, and with his newly-hatched dragon, avenges the murder of his uncle, rescues a beautiful warrior, and battles a tyrannical king.
Give Eragon a few years: By then, it might be delightfully bad.
A painful reminder of what fantasy cinema was like before the Lord of the Rings trilogy re-wrote the rules.
The title of Hollywood's latest fantasy epic is simply the word 'dragon' with one letter changed, and unfortunately, that's about the level of creativity you can expect from Eragon.
With no momentum and no real characters to care about, [Eragon] lumbers its way toward a grand, sequel-setting finale.
...So heavily derivative of Star Wars and The Lord of the Rings it should be ritually torched by followers of Yoda and Frodo.
Eragon may not be a big Oscar contender, but in a movie season filled with blood diamonds, fascist soldiers and Idi Amin, it provides a much-needed afternoon of PG-rated family-friendly adventure.

I liked it a lot. The movie is completely different from the book. It is so different that there was no way they could have made the rest of the books because they left out so much stuff. But I still liked it because if you can look passed its failures toward mimicking the book you will see that it was still a great movie.
Sucked It cut out most of the key parts so it made no sense and Brom was the best actor and Eragon was played by the worst actor they could pick did they evening talk with Cristopher Poalini when they created this but Saphira doesn't evening look like a Eragon the cover of Eragon the book was better than the special effects created for this movie so I utterly HATE THIS MOVIE READ THE BOOK TO UNDERSTAND THIS MOVIE and I read it 3times and the movie still doesn't make sense to me Arya was an Elf in the book,but a human in the movie Lord of the Rings had had elf ears couldn't you just do that and that's all I have to say or this will get Bulger so overall the book blew me away but the movie made me cry because I was tortured by watching it
If your a fan of the book, you WILL be disappointed... Okay, so instead of listing everything that went wrong or off topic from the original plotline by Christopher Paolini, I will just say this: if you have read the book, save yourself the either $3 to rent or $10 to buy, as you will see many things wrong with the plot almost immediately. The ONLY good thing I can say about this movie was that the CGI animation of Saphira was beyond incredible, and for that I applaud them. Otherwise, don't waste your money on this and go buy the book instead.
Terrible The characters were all wrong, the plotline skewed, and the acting terrible. No wonder they haven't tried to make a movie with Eldest. Paolini shouldn't have let them butcher his story so badly. If you've read the books, don't torture yourself by watching this. If you haven't read the books, go for it: it's a much better movie if watched out of context, I'm sure.
Awful movie, great book I love the book, and was completely disappointed with the movie. Very little was actually related to the book, and the acting could have been better. However, the animation, especially with Saphira, was spectacular. I'm sure if you haven't read the books, you would like it, but if you have read Eragon, save yourself the money and don't buy/rent this.
Awful, just awful! I adore the books, they were fantastic. I love the actor they picked for Brom, he was great, as always in whatever film he is in. But the plot was too fragmented, the script third rate at best, and a lot of key story points such as Roran's real reason for leaving Garrow's farm were all left out. I believe the filmmakers should apologize to the author for butchering his novels so badly. Please spend the money, folks, and buy the books. You will love the story then, overall, and forget this bad film.
This move was complete and total F#%&ING S!#+ These books are easly in my top 3 fantasy series which is a wonderful 3 way tie. Amazing books epic story beautifully written. Just amazing. This move was so offensively bad I hate it almost as much as I hate Trump. It made me lose respect for Joss Stone a thing I didn't even think was possible. Just writing this review is making me sick cuz I have to remember the horror of this abomination!
Not worth it. Please for God's sake. Read the books. If you have already, don't watch this. It will make you hate everything Hollywood. Only the basic parts of the main plot are there, everything else has been so severely and poorly altered, it's sacrilege to name this movie after such an amazing saga.
Dear sweet lord why?! No. Just no! You can't unsee this. I can't unsee this! Definitely top 10 worst book to film adaptations to ever exist. The writers knew it! Completely spoil a second book reveal at the end of the movie. Just no. Run!
Just no good! I couldn't stand the movie. I read the book and it was great, especially for having such a young author, but the movie was awful. It jumped around like crazy. Without prior information from the book, you'd be left clueless as to what was going on. Don't bother with this one.
Absolutely horrible, having read and loved all the books. Just like Ender's Game it tried too hard and flopped. Squashed too much into too short a movie and skipped some rather important parts. Very disappointed.
I really loved the Inheritance Cycle. The series is so amazing, but the movie was a disappointment. The plot was way different than the movie, but as a whole, Eragon is a pretty good movie with interesting parts
Worst Theatrical Adaptation Worst ever. Peter Jackson changed less in his trilogy of the hobbit book. I should have asked for my money back for such a terrible movie at the theater. So much was changed in the movie, and the story is so trashed, I am ashamed to have even watched it. Shame on the director! The part in the description about battling the tyrannical king is a little misleading. Eragon doesn't fight him yet, but I guess he does fight one of the Kings lackeys.
Not worth the time! If you have read the books than you will go find something to break if you watch the movie. It is a completely terrible adaptation of the book. And it doesn't even follow the plot line!. And if you say I don't care about the books I loved the movie! Than you have a very bad taste in special effects, acting, and 3d animation. One example. The type of dragon sapphira is is the type that has scales, not the kind that has feathers and looks like a bird. Read the books! Don't be lazy and say I don't want to.
Garbage Like everyone else that finished the inheritance cycle I believe the move is a joke. A very bad joke at that. It isn't worth the watch. I'd like that 45min of my life back,thats about as far as I made it.I wouldn't give it any star's but u have to. Sad could be an amazing movie.
The movie is trash the book was gr8! The movie is definitely really bad. It is missing a lot in it and also the cast isn't so great. I mean Arya is supposed to be hotter than that. She's an elf for crying out loud! And the dragon is supposed to be more badass with compassion mixed in. A remake is what it needs. If I was to direct the movie it would be something like Lord of the Rings mixed with HarryPotter
Absolute garbage. Saw this movie online and the storyline is just terrible. Saphira has what what looks like feathers when in the book it says she has wings that are just thin membranes. The dwarves are left out. Everything was just wrong with this movie. Don't waste your time and money on this. Huge fan of the books, by the way. Read the books, they are amazing.
Missing a lot of stuff No dwarves really and they also left out the part were eragon and saphira got drunk in that one dwarf city and Saphira was so drunk when she bowd she fell over and passed out because she was so drunk
This movie just sucks Everything is off if you have read the book then don't torture your self watching this piece of crap. But I will give them one compliment the animations for saphira was just awesome I wish I had a saphira
Y'all are right Movie sucks I've read all 4 books and the movie is very very very very disappointing I don't even think it deserves 1 star but you are right Saphira was pretty cool only thing good about movie don't buy
terrible when i first watched the movie, i loved it, but then i read the books and realized how terrible it was. i dont think the actors or producers or the director even read them themselves. i literally cant watch the movie after reading the books. plus they picked the WORST voice for saphira.
It's not THAT bad At first this movie comes off as a "Lord of the Rings Lite," but when viewed from the context of a parent and fantasy lover it really is quite enjoyable. These are the types of movies I grew up with and won't mind sharing with my own children someday; while not a bastion of great writing, acting, or anything else film-worthy, it's still a good old-fashioned "farm boy becomes hero" fantasy. With dragons. Always a plus, dragons.
Is this a joke This movie sucks the only thing right with this movie is the characters the movie itself doesn't even go along with the book this movie doesn't. Even deserve a star it is a disgrace to eragon
Good movie! Saw the movie then found out it was a book. The book is better but I wasn't disappointed like others. I wouldn't have read the books but I was intrigued by the movie and the book answered a lot of questions I had. =D
Most people say this was a bad movie because it screwed the book up, but, to be honest, it put an image to a story. It may not have been perfect, but it was pretty good. Would suggest buying, but only for the movie; not the book.
Absolutely aweful They basically take an amazing story put it in a blender eat it then this is wat u find left in toilet at the end of the day. Not even for the fact how messed the plot wad. It just skips so much in the movie it self. It hops around. I think if I didn't read the book I be even more lost watching this movie. Like wow. Only thing i can say is i wish i never saw this.
Loved It Seeing as this is the MOVIE and not the book I am basing my review off the movie. I loved it. Do I recommend it? Yes. Have I read the book? Nope. Take the movie for what it is. Just because a movie is based off the book doesn't mean it's going to be identical to the book. I have not come across a movie that was better than the book it was based off. A lot of factors come into play with the movies. With books you get everything the author intended. Loved the voice of the dragon. Wish they did a sequel.
