Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: "Seventh Son" moves at a fairly quick pace and has a sense of humor about itself. That doesn't mean it's thrilling, or funny. Just that it's a quickly forgotten pile of junk.
Rotten: Impressive set design and visuals, excessive CGI, and a loud score from Marco Beltrami can't fully compensate for bland character development and a predictable narrative that rushes along on a linear trajectory.
Rotten: It's a loud, joyless mess.
Rotten: "Seventh Son" delivers exactly what it promises: Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore slumming in a laughably generic sword-and-sorcery almost-epic.
I enjoyed the movie. Is it a masterpiece? No. But it does take you away from the now and holds your attention. 3 1/2 stars from me even though the alternate ending should have been used.
Baffled by ratings...
What do you expect from fantasy fiction movie? Not every one of the will be Lord of the Ring.
This high quality movie. It has major actors that deliver. It has some nice effects, really good action scenes and reasonably well plot. Is it an original movie? No. Is it an amazing movie? No. Is it fair couple hours of fun? Yes.
I saw the movie today, and it was absolutely stunning. I love the storyline, I love everything about it. Ben Barnes, Jeff Bridges, Alicia Vikander and Julianne Moore made the movie. I love a good medieval tale, and it draws you in from the beginning. Then again, so does the idea of soulmates and dragons. I didn't get a chance to read the book before I watched the film, but now I want to do that as well.
