The film is basically a rich man's Uwe Boll version of Dungeons and Dragons -- a lot of tacky visuals, world-building mumbo-jumbo and gooey CGI creatures encased in a narrative vacuum.

Seventh Son wraps itself in a bland colored shroud of clichés, making you find reality much more interesting than fiction.

It's difficult to comprehend quite why this stellar cast all signed up to this distinctively lacklustre project.

You have to admire a movie which takes a gold-star cast (Julianne Moore, Jeff Bridges, Alicia Vikander) and creates such an unpolishable turd.

Seventh Son is derivative to its core.

Oscar-winners Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore deliver two of the hammiest performances of their distinguished careers in Sergei Bodrov's overcooked sword-and-sorcery fantasy.

It's a real problem when one of your leading characters sounds like a cross between Bane, the masked mutterer from The Dark Knight Rises, and a man competing in a hard-boiled-egg-eating contest.

What's missing is any sense of excitement.

Even if you're willing to go along for the ride, that still means taking Bridges' performance seriously. Which, believe me, isn't easy.

Boring, predictable and lacking inspiration, Seventh Son is bog-standard boilerplate fantasy and will probably reach the upper echelons of countless 'worst of' lists come the end of the year.

A muddled mish-mash.

It's lively and daft, and you find yourself wondering: all this expertise, and the best anybody could think to do with it was this?

Like Monty Python without the comedy, or at least without the intentional comedy. Jeff Bridges' saving throw against the Phoning It In curse fails!

Would it even have been improved if we could actually hear the dialogue? Probably not.

You leave the cinema wishing you'd understood even less of it than you did.

A film that plays like the most disposable Saturday-matinee fodder imaginable.

The world's least impressive Big Lebowski reunion.

If this film were an apprentice it would have to serve several more years before being allowed master status.

Seventh Son is another one of those barely comprehensible 3D fantasy films with lots of dark Middle-earth-type settings and swirls of digital effects that make it hard to figure out precisely what is going on.
