Seventh Son is brisk and unpretentious, though the fact that these two qualities can be considered remarkable probably says more about the state of modern genre filmmaking than it does about the movie itself.

At least Moore has not played a character like Malkin in recent memory. The same cannot be said for Bridges, whose flawed, alcoholic hero shtick is starting to wear thin.

Jeff Bridges's abysmally campy performance may be the worst thing about disposable sword-and-sorcery fantasy Seventh Son, but it's also the only memorable thing.

Once the plot dominoes are arranged in an overlong series of setups, Seventh Son ends up being a movie about walking, interrupted occasionally by a battle against a mythological monster.

Seventh Son is thoroughly ill-conceived, a pale imitation of its more adventurous and breathtaking brethren.

"Seventh Son" tells a story of dragons, witches, ghosts and ogres, but the most fantastic thing about it is the idea that someone thought this lumpy, bumpy and swollen sack of tired tropes and cluttered CGI would attract audiences.

At this point, it's tempting to wonder if Jeff Bridges accepts roles chiefly on the basis of whether or not he'll get to sport grizzly facial hair and talk funny.

You'd think Julianne Moore leading a coven of witches who can transform into dragons, bears and Djimon Hounsou would be more entertaining.

I was disappointed that there were no fire-breathing mummy ninjas from space, but you have to save something for the sequel.

Why does this movie exist? And what the hell are A-list actors like Moore and Bridges doing in something that seems so clearly destined to perplex insomniac Starz viewers several weeks from now?

The stars shine, but the special effects are strictly fantasy-film assembly line, with hardly a spark of inspiration.

Son of a dud.

An over-designed, under-conceived fantasy epic in which even topnotch contributors can't get the chemistry right, leaving Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore looking silly.
