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.
Give Eragon a few years: By then, it might be delightfully bad.
Awful adaptation! What a disappointment after reading the books. There was so much potential and they just completely ruined it. I can't imagine how any of the writers or the director could have possibly felt good about this movie when they put it out. PLEASE DO A REBOOT! JJ ABRAMS OR PETER JASCKSON!
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.
People don't know what it costs to make it LIKE the book HELLO PEOPLE! YOU ARE ALL FREAKING GREEDY! IT WOULD HAVE COSTED THEM OVER 1 BILLION DOLLARS TO USE THE BOOK AS A SCRIPT. HELLO! Why don't YOU be the DIRECTOR so WE can YELL at you.
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.
HORRIBLE, DO NOT BUY, OR RENT please i,couldve done a better job at directing the movie than this. really dissapointed. its almost like they didnt even try. if you read the books, DO NOT WASTE YOU MONEY ON THIS. for one,thing, the army that attacked tronjiem, was an urgal army, second, arya,and eragon did not part ways, at the end, they,traveled to ellesmera. god. if you read the books, you know,this couldve turned out to be the next Harry potter or LOTR. 😡😱😖😤💩🙆
Not at all like the books This is a mediocre adaption at best. It's disappointing, because the movie had the potential to be even decent. Instead, they disregard character development and plot and jump straight into the action. They go through what was half of the book in under forty minutes. This movie turns into the worst Hollywood has to offer: a big budget, lots of violence, and bad acting. Sorry to the director, but this is vile and deserves to be thrown into the garbage. Save your money for something else.
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.
hmm Wow you messed up so badly they can't continue the series. But I have a thought. Why don't we release a new eragon. Kind of like how they remade spiderman and made the amazing spider man. Idk it's just a thought. Also, the novel was really long. They couldn't fit it all into one movie. This was before they made part 1 part 2 types of movies. I mean honestly, it's impossible to fit that book into 2 hours.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
Slaughtered the story I know its hard to get a book condensed into a movie, but this is horrible. Good thought if the director and writer kept more with the book. The movie can doesn't make a lot of sense by itself without knowing the story line either.
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.
I was in middle school when this movie came out. I was, and still am, an immense fan of the book series, and I remember shaking with excitement when I entered the theater to see this movie. I left heart broken. I left feeling like someone had taken my favorite book, put it through a shredder after reading 3 random chapters, and made this cheap movie. Beyond the casting of Brom, Saphira, and Durza, this movie was an unfortunate mistake. I can only hope someone does a reboot worthy of the books.
Good but... I loved the movie a lot. It was a pretty Good movie. But I was really upset that the movie didn't match up with the series. Arya was bad at acting for one and the whole 'murtag' being captured didn't even happen. The twins weren't there, the training didn't happen. U never got to see the castle or the part where saphira got drunk!(which I really wanted to see) So maybe u could remake a part one and part two and I will be very happy if u can add more of the funny parts. What's up with saphira dying!!!!!
Why. How could you do this to my favorite childhood series!?!? In short: amazing book. Okay movie if you haven't read the books. If you have read the books, please don't put yourself through the agony of seeing a world you've loved totally gotten wrong. I've tried to count the things that were wrong, but I just stopped half way through the movie when I was at 60+ inaccuracies. Saphira was beautiful piece of CGI (her voice among other things was wrong), and whoever did Brom did a good job with what he was given.
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!
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.
Ruined the best book ever. Don't even try. To watch this. It sucks. I watch this movie for free and I still think it's a waste of time. Although the animation is really good it's horrible in general, they mash all the important characters together, and then if that's not enough, the acting is horrible! It would make an OK movie but not if it's based off the best book of all time! Don't watch this movie.😠
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.
Writers didn't read the book To keep myself from ranting about how bad this movie I'd like to say that if you didn't read the book, you'll like it infinitely more than someone who has. The only consistency between both book and movie is character names. Plus dragons don't have feathers...
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.
Good movie,but... Why not make movies of the other three books,it will be a hit I promise you, just look at how many people liked the book, they'll love it more with a movie to each book to, I mean you left this movie on a cliffhanger,there are so many questions and you leave it like that? You owe the audience the rest of the story,please make other movies ALL OF YOU THAT HATE THIS MOVIE,THEY WANT TO REVIVE THE MOVIE SERIES,BUT THEY NEED TO KNOW PEOPLE WANT IT, SO SPREAD THE WORD, THEY NEED PEOPLE TO SAY THEY WANT THE INHERITANCE CYCLE REBORN, YOU CAN LOOK IT UP, THEY HAVE A PETITION THAT IF ENOUGH PEOPLE SIGN UP,THEY WILL RESTART THE MOVIE SERIES AND WILL ACTUALLY FOLLOW THE BOOK!
Not like the books, but... It was good. When I first saw it, I never read any of the books, and I loved it. When I read the books, I thought of two things: as a film adaptation, it sucked. As a film, it was good. There was no way that it could merit a sequel, but it still was a grear on its own. Side note imo, I never felt quite comfortable with the eventual fate of saphira and eragon by the end of the last book.
So terrible it shouldn't exist... If you're thinking you should read the book before watching the movie... Just... Read the book... If you've read the book and you're curious about the movie... Don't even bother...
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
Good movie wise Movie Wise it was good but book wise it was terrible. If you are looking for a movie that matches the book keep looking. I was very disappointed in how much it deviates from the book but over all not terrible.
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.
