First this movie seem to have 2 titles. I was looking for "The Seeker' that was what I saw advertised. The story was very good, the affects great. I love the way he is finally able to get his brothers off of him...

Flixter's a little behind because this movie has made the awesome decision of including another title BEFORE the title and is now called The Seeker: The Dark is Rising. Oooo, that doesn't make sense but it's looming. When in fuck are the children's fantasy novels gonna stop being popular? The trailer makes this look embarrassing. Like Howard the Duck embarrassing. I hope the creators behind this are sitting on their thrones with their mahogany tables and big leather bound books thinking, "The Seeker: The Dark is Rising is gonna be as big, nay, bigger than LOTR and Harry Potter combined. We've cornered the market perfectly in their wake with such great successes as Eragon, Lemony Snicket, and the awsomely impending adaptation of The Spiderwick Chronicles." Then after the movie inevitably tanks in the box office, they all hurry up and kill themselves.

Al ver el poster y el trailer supongo que mis espectativas subieron mucho con esta película, pero lamentablemente no ofrece nada nuevo. 5/10

Another fantasy film which is very appealing. A vast array of fine actors and the story looks immense, want to see. Definately a flood of fantasy films this winter!

outside of LOTR, this series is easily my favorite even today, however, the seemingly endless number of inaccuracies in the trailer alone completely killed my excitement and anticipation for this film, however i will still see it because i cant really judge a movie from the trailer.

A bog standard fantasy that is clearly cashing in on the success of Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings and has little of the charm of the two films put together. The fantasy aspects are well presented, though the tired and tested plot of a boy fighting against the odds to defeat the forces of evil is nothing new.

Not bad, but not amazing.

Fair, not great movie. Previews made it look 10 times better than it was. But I guess thats what they are supposed to do right?

The film tells the story of Will Stanton, a young teenager who learns he is the last of a group of warriors who have dedicated their lives to fighting the forces of the Dark. Traveling back and forth through time, Will discovers a series of clues which lead him into a showdown with forces of unimaginable power. With the Dark once again rising, the future of the world rests in Will's hands.

Fun visual effects in some places but it felt like they were trying to put too much in the short time frame of the movie.

I fear this will be mutated beyond belief. The trailer feels so wrong and I'm and fear it will shatter my childhood love.

Typical teen-age-movie. The Book was bad and the movie wasn't that good either.

It might not be Harry Potter but it's a good thing to watch and probably to read now that the Potter series is over. I guess someday I'll have to read these books but right now I'll conform with the movies because so many other things to read. Maybe when all of my fav' series are over I'll have time to read and enjoy this one as much as I know I can.

No where near as good as the book.
