Critical Consensus
Written by a teenager (and it shows), Eragon presents nothing new to the "hero?s journey" story archetype. In movie terms, this movie looks and sounds like Lord of the Rings and plays out like a bad Star Wars rip-off.

The way the critics picture it, the makers of Eragon should soon be expecting an annoyed phone call from George Lucas.

Synopsis
