Dan's Review of Eragon

10 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes


Eragon was a pretty good movie.

The good: The special effects were great, including Saphira the Dragon. Jeremy Irons as Brom was a good actor, and most of the acting was average to good. The action was also pretty entertaining.

the bad: The script was pretty bad, as the actors said some cheesy lines. The movie was too short, and it should have sticked much closer to the book, especially if it wants to make a sequel. The movie felt a little compressed and rushed.

overall impressions: The movie was a fun and kid friendly adventure, although it is definitely not a masterpiece. Fans of the book may be displeased of how it differs from the book. However, it is worth seeing once in the theaters.
