ERAGON (2006 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 1.7|5.0 Starsì

Eragon, based on the first book of four written by Christopher Paolini, seems to start like the Dragonheart movies and plays along fairly well until Eragon becomes involved with Arya. Instant mediocrity sets in. From that point, it’s a downhill slide to its concluding credits.

Storyline

Eragon (Ed Speleers) sees a blue dragon egg and about ninety days later finds a real dragon hatching from the egg. After his home is destroyed, he seeks revenge with his dragon.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Stefan Fangmeier for directing efforts. Thank you to Executive Producers Gil Netter and Chris Symes for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Brom (Jeremy Irons), Arya (Sienna Guillory), Durza (Robert Carlyle), Galbatorix (John Malkovich), Murtagh (Garrett Hedlund), Uncle Garrow (Alun Armstrong), Roran (Christopher Egan), and Hrothgar (Gary Lewis).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

No. It’s a serious waste of time.
