SEVENTH SON (Theatrical Release Canada 2014)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.6|5.0 Starsììì 

Seventh Son starts with interesting potential to expand into a good movie. By the time Jeff Bridges gets his next apprentice, it seems there is a small shift as if everything became digitized including the main characters. This small detraction troubles the rest of the movie with Jeff Bridges eventually stranded on the island of ‘out of place’ on the sea of ‘weak character development’ that sits on a flat earth and does not realize its ability to achieve 3-dimensional volume and wholeness.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

No. There are better stories that incorporate witches like The Wizard of Oz or Beastly.
