4.0 out of 5 stars What are you waiting for? Go :) March 26 2007
By M. B. Alcat TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
"Eragon" is a film that surprised me. According to what I had heard, it was far from being a good movie, but I was curious, so I decided to give it a try. A friend had given me the book on which this film is based as a Christmas present, and I decided to read it if the movie had at least something that managed to charm me.

Regarding the plot, I suppose I should start by saying that the main character is Eragon (Ed Speleers), a young man that discovers a blue stone he wants to trade for something to feed his family. Unable to do so, Eragon decides to keep the stone, and receives a very big surprise when the stone turns to be a dragon's egg, and he makes the acquaintance of a new friend, a young dragon named Saphira. The birth of Saphira is a powerful magical event noticed by many, among them King Galbatorix (John Malkovich), the man that rules Alagaesia the land where Eragon lives.

Galbatorix used to be a dragon rider, but he betrayed the other dragon riders and became a tyrant, ruling his empire with strength and without mercy. From his point of view, Eragon and Saphira are a threat, and they must join him or be wiped out.

Galbatorix makes the wrong move, though, and turns Eragon into an enemy. The young man decides to join the Varden, those that oppose the king. With the help of Brom (Jeremy Irons), an old bard that is a lot more than what he seems to be, Eragon will try to find his path, with Saphira by her side.

That sounds interesting and you want to know more? Well, watch the movie. It is not perfect, but it is entertaining, the kind of movie that engages the spectator quickly in the adventures of the main characters, and makes them care. Of course, recommended...

3.0 out of 5 stars Formula coming of age hero series pilot April 28 2007
By bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
We see the prehistory of the present day and cut to Eragon (Ed Speleers) before he realizes his destiny, hunting; he come across the standard virgin (Sienna Guillory) and a unique stone. Eragon meets the standard characters as his soon to be mentor Brom (a dirty faced Jeremy Irons). Soon circumstance will force this farmer's nephew, Eragon to have to blossom into the prototype hero. He is joined by a dragon, Saphira (voice of Rachel Weisz) that imprints on coming out.

Will he rise above his fears and save the princes?

I can not help but fee that the characters are just walking thorough their parts. On course if you are young and impressionable and have not seen this standard story before it may not be noticed. I used to watch "The Cisco Kid" and was impressed as a child.

Naturally there is nothing one can say to the reader of books except that many times, as with this example, the transition to the big screen will lose a lot of the story. However the screen writer did not have to tell his own story, even if it is needed to keep up the momentum. The movie does look like a pilot so maybe more will come in a sequel or a TV show.

See the story much better done as "Star Wars" (1977) the farmer's nephew must become a hero after his uncle was burnt to a crisp. Only the mentor is Obi-wan and Saphira, our dragon is two robots and a Chewbacca.

This film can be fun but there is nothing exceptional. Reading Joseph Campbell ahead of time can add a richer dimension to the story.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the book April 3 2007
Format:DVD
Perhaps I would give this movie a higher rating if I hadn't read the book first. This movie could have been way more thorough in its plot and character development. While I was watching it I felt whisked through the storyline, and while I realize that this is often the case with movies as compared to the books they are based on, the movie could have been expanded to capture the story a little better. In an industry that is now commonly producing 2 1/2 hour movies, I ask: why was this one only 1 3/4 hours, at the expense of sacrificing depth of story and character? Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings", and Rowling's "Harry Potter" series were well done in their transformation from book to big screen, but unfortunately this was not the case with Paolini's masterpiece. On the bright side, if you haven't read the book, there is still enjoyment to be gleaned. The movie does offer some good special effects, most importantly, the animation of one of the most important characters: Saphira, the dragon!

If you are a reader, I would highly recommend the books, regardless as to whether you see the movie first. There is so much in the movie that isn't captured, that it could be like reading a whole new story!

1.0 out of 5 stars Eragone March 22 2007
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
"Eragon" wants to be "Lord of the Rings." It really, really wants to be. In a pinch, it'll settle for "The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe" with a dash of Harry Potter.

But those hoping for a spectacular PG-rated epic shouldn't hold their breaths, because the adaptation of Christopher Paolini's bestseller is a massive bellyflop. The direction is stilted and plodding, the acting is on par with tree stumps, and the whole thing is uninspired -- it never moves beyond "quick cash-in."

A young woman is being chased through the woods by a band of evil soldiers, trying to recapture a bright blue stone she stole from evil King Galbatorix (John Malkovich), but she magics it away. It's found in the woods by a young farm boy, Eragon (Edward Speleers), who unsuccessfully tries to trade it for food. But the stone turns out to be a dragon's egg.

When his home and uncle are destroyed, Eragon escapes with his now-grown dragon Saphira (Rachael Weisz) and a mysterious stranger named Brom (Jeremy Irons), who knows a lot about the Dragon Riders. Now Eragon and Saphira may be the only hope for the land, not to mention the captive elf princess he's dreaming about, and whom he has to rescue from the evil king.

Dragons, damsels in distress, magic spells, an evil king and his evil wizard, and a Young Hero in the Luke Skywalker mold... well, "Eragon" had a lot of obstacles in front of it from the start. It sounds like the love child of "Star Wars" and "Lord of the Rings"... except it's infinitely more clumsy than either of those movies.

And the director doesn't help -- Stefan Fangmeier is horribly crude and clumsy in his directing, with a style that manages to be both stilted and choppy. The scripting is even worse.
