Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The film's few moments of hilarity are no less welcome for being completely unintended... – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: Give Eragon a few years: By then, it might be delightfully bad. – Gregory Kirschling, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: ...Takes an already derivative plot and guts it like so many Urgals. – Alex Chun, Los Angeles Times, Sep 20, 2007

Rotten: Paolini was 15 when he began writing Eragon, and the book's epic imagination reflects its creator's precocious youth. What a shame a bunch of grownups had to step in and muck it all up. – Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, Jun 24, 2010

Ruined the Book

You will only like this movie if you have never even read the book. The movie left out too many important details and most of the magic is missing. The characters appearance are even a lot different from the book. (ex. arya has "black" hair!) All I can say is don't even bother to waste your money on this movie.

Destroyed the book

I was excited about this moving. Hoping like other epic tales like Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter etc... that someone on the production staff had READ the book. No so in this case. It's like they looked at the cliff notes version of the book and went on from that point. Could have been a great series of movies. This one was so bad, someone who loves the books needs to buy the rights and remake it.

The movie...

i'd have to say it was alright. Not my favorite book to movie. In my own opinion the book was way better. They left out some things that would be important in the next one like Joed and the star sapphire... i would've loved to see that.
