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.

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.

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

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.

[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...
