Kids too young for Lord Of The Rings may be distracted by this below average fantasy, but for everyone else this is derivative and silly.

Regardless of your feelings about the fantasy genre, there's one thing everyone can agree on: Elves should not be 5-foot-6.

As my companion dourly noted, "I just paid $30.00 to see Star Wars." (And yes, that's matinee pricing and all I had was a water.) But wow, great effects, seriously.

Tolkien lite.

The viewer is not transported to the magical, complex and elaborate kingdom of AlagaŽsia of the book, but rather is merely observing action scene followed by action scene.

Director Stefan Fangmeier would have been better off following the cliff-hanging, lucidly written action scenes by [Christopher] Paolini.

While it offers nothing new, it gets a passing grade because it does have some interesting characters, brought to life by some top-notch acting talent.

At a recent screening of 'Eragon,' a woman lamented, 'It's like a teenage guy wrote this.' She was right.

Give Eragon a few years: By then, it might be delightfully bad.

We can only hope the next instalment will have a little more fire in its belly.

John Malkovich finds his loopy, nostril-flaring form as the wicked tyrant and Jeremy Irons, playing the boy's wise mentor, is visibly thinking about his fee.

A painful reminder of what fantasy cinema was like before the Lord of the Rings trilogy re-wrote the rules.
December 30, 2006
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.

This tale of dragons and derring-do risks sending kids and grownups alike drifting away to the Land Of Nod.

If one happens to be a boy between the ages of 10 and 15 or so, all of this will be quite exciting and engaging. If one is much older -- say, 16 -- and has seen any epic adventure produced in the last two decades, Eragon will be trying.

Laughably bad, mind-bogglingly derivative, and easily one of the worst movies of the year.
