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.

It's far from the worst of this kind of movie, partly because there is so much talent, but it's hard to find that cheering. To say it could be worse is faint praise.

This question of morality is a perfectly fine basis for a film, fantasy or otherwise, but Seventh Son doesn't know what to do with it.
