Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The film's few moments of hilarity are no less welcome for being completely unintended...
Rotten: Give Eragon a few years: By then, it might be delightfully bad.
Rotten: The script, which reaches for importance by repeating ideas, drags down the actors, who try to do the same thing by throwing periods into the middle of a sentence: "Take care of Saphira. Without her. You'll find that life is hardly worth living."
Rotten: Why has 20th Century Fox released this embarrassment - whose quality would be dubious for a direct-to-video release - into theaters?
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.
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.
