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.

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

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.

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

The effects are impressive but the script, acting and direction are desperately dull.

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

It's a bonanza for the tinted contact lens industry.
December 30, 2006
Laughably bad, mind-bogglingly derivative, and easily one of the worst movies of the year.

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.
December 30, 2006
Technically competent, but essentially a fantasy movie that mistakes industrial light for magic.
