I have wanted to see this in such a long time.

Boring, childish, completely predictable, and racist (the dark ugly people are bad, white shiny people are good; having one black man as a leader among the good guys don't change the overall tone) to boot. Oh and the one significant female human character is basically incapacitated most of the movie (I guess the dragon is female too).

This is a terrible adaption and just an overall dull movie. There is so much potential with this story and they completely wasted and rushed it with this movie. Huge let down.

I regret ever watching this disaster. the worst thing is the acting, they're not even trying.

Shit movie, that's all there really is to say, the critical consensus is a bit retarded though, having read the books and seen the movie the 'Written by a teenager (and it shows)' its downright stupid, the books are excellently written, the bad quality of a movie cannot be blamed on a teenager who would get literally no say in the direction of the movie due to their age

This was a ok movie the land scape to this movie was Beautiful and the dragons where cool. And the Evil King ruling the world was pretty scary and creepy. But it was a ok movie.

Give it a try

I didn't hate this as much as everyone else. There's nothing new in the story or the filming, but it's all done well. It is weak when compared to "Lord of The Rings" or "The Hobbit", but it's much better than other fantasy films like Tom Cruise's "Legend". I personally found "Eragon" entertaining.

Book was way better and I don't like what they did to the story here but as a stand alone movie its not so bad

The books are amazing, the film is simply crap. I just wish that Peter Jackson had been the director.

Terrible. The entire prospect of Eragon is disgusting to me. Its an obvious Lord of the Rings wannabe.

Christopher Paolini logic** Hmm, you know what I should do? Publish a book exactly like Lord of the Rings except without hobbits, and a make a ton of money!

How was sure a failure even warranted in the first olace?!

The book is SOOOOOO much better!!!! Anyone who's read it knows it's true. It's my favorite book but I don't like the movie.

This movie is such a bastardization of the book in every way possible, so it's not fair to bring up the authors age as a weak point of the movie itself. I mean they messed up the plot SO much it wasn't even possible to make sequel's, what does that say? lol

Screw this movie. Screw the actors. Screw the director. Screw the studio. Screw the writers. Screw anyone who bought a ticket to this crap (including me)

This movie didn't do justice to what the book is like. The book is soooo much better. The movie was still pretty good. I think given a bigger budget and better special effects a remake of movie could be amazing.

Two character performances still shine after re-watching the doomed Eragon movie. 1) The dragon Saphira: Still impressive in design and movement. Voice acting by Rachel Weisz was "ehh". 2) Durza, the Shade: Menacing performance by Robert Carlyle (Rumpelstiltskin aka The Dark One, ABC's Once Upon a Time). He embraced the role fully. They couldn't save the failings of the story and rest of the production.
