Empire Magazine

Technically competent, but essentially a fantasy movie that mistakes industrial light for magic.

George Lucas should sue their sorry plagiarist asses. . .

It's certainly more fast paced than The Chronicles of Narnia and more concise than Harry Potter.

The special effects are the tail wagging the dragon in this sword-and-sorcery fantasy, which may put a spell on kids, despite a dull hero and skimpy storyline.

Para una obra de más de quinientas páginas, hay demasiada ligereza en la cinta...

I imagine it might appeal to folks who have never before seen a fantasy flick.

Cinema em Cena

Basicamente mergulhando a trama de Star Wars no universo de J.R.R. Tolkien, Eragon traz anões, elfos, humanos, dragões, feiticeiros e Vaders (ops... Vardens) envolvidos em incidentes que são um verdadeiro bê-á-bá do gênero fantasia.

Stefen Fangmeier establishes himself as the Uwe Boll of family-friendly fantasy.

Christian Science Monitor

Considering that Christopher Paolini started writing his Eragon novels at age 15 and his protagonist is 17, the adolescent tone is appropriate, but the film shouldn't look as if teenagers made it.

Common Sense Media

Eragon offers a basic boy-and-his-talking-dog sort of set up, complicated by Eragon's stubbornness and Malkovich's typically oddball line readings.

You'll probably spot eight or nine different pieces of uncredited source material as the garish smear of Eragon washes over you.

With Eragon, visual-effects wizard Stefen Fangmeier turns director and proves himself the logical successor to Uwe Boll.

God help us, there's going to be a director's cut, isn't there?

I wish that I could push aside a filing cabinet somewhere and crawl through a secret passageway into Malkovich's brain for 15 minutes, just so I could learn what he was thinking when he signed on for this movie.

It's no wonder you can expect a spoof called "Epic Movie," in theatres next spring, from the makers of Scary Movie.

Swap dragon riders with the Jedi, Galbatorix with Darth Vader, Brom with Obi-Wan and what have you got? Plagiarism.

Window to the Movies

The feeling of a rip-off is so blatant that it practically ends all other discussion of the movie.

The Varden expected 'more' when they heard a Dragon Rider was coming, but I expected less from the movie... we both were pleasantly surprised.

[N]ary a thing of any substance differs from the Gospel of Luke, except here be dragons instead of landspeeders and X-wing fighters and the Han Solo is really lame...
