“Eragon DVD - A Yawner!”

published 02/06/2007

ProGood, well - thought - out special effects.

ConsToo short and only a touch on the book.

Eragon, the book by Christopher Paolini, is an action - packed, adventurous tale about a young boy who embarks on a perilous stone whilst out in the forest and he has no idea what he is getting himself into. He doesn't know about his status of Dragon Rider or why he has been picked amongst other...

“One massive cliché”

published 15/07/2007

ProGood animation and action

ConsPredictable, average, disappointing

It’s hard to describe this film in just one sentence, but I think I’ve got it: one massive cliché. There’s a good guy who’s the unwilling ‘chosen one’, and evil guy trying to control the world, evil guy’s servant, an army of strange creatures only made for killing, an old man who guides the good...

If you like films like the Lord of the Rings, Narnia and Harry Potter then you will really enjoy this film. The special effects were very realistic and the acting is top notch especially since half the time Edward Speleers was talking to a blue screeen. The dragon Saphira looks fantastic and is...

“Good but a Cliché.”

published 18/07/2007

ProGreat graphic's and Sound, Intresting

ConsClichéd to other top title's made.

I thought that this film was quite good. It has the main character Eragon, who find's an Egg whilst hunting and it's a Dragon's Egg. It is sort of like Lord of the Rings in the respect that it has monster's trained to kill by the Evil King and a good guy in the name of Eragon who must save the...

“Review on Eragon's DVD”

published 26/06/2008

ProInsights on a different world

ConsCharacters can be more developed

Wanted to see a live breathing dragon starring the biggest debut: Eragon? This DVD is your greatest chance. Let Mr Christopher Paolini enchant you with a different world, a new world crawling with urgals, dragons and riders. Though starkly similar to shows such as the Lord of The Rings, Eragon...

Product Information : Eragon (Blu-Ray)

Manufacturer's product description

Based on the first novel in Christopher Paolini’s popular INHERITANCE trilogy, ERAGON is a fantastical adventure in a vein similar to that of the LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy and THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA. A classic story of a quest driven by destiny and set in a land where elves, magicians, and humans live side by side, the battle between good and evil, innocence and cynicism, is taken up once again. John Malkovitch camps it up as the evil King Galbatorix, a former guardian of peace who long ago went over to the dark side. He now rules over a land from which dragons have all but disappeared, until humble farm boy Eragon (newcomer Edward Speelers) happens upon a mysterious blue object that turns out to be a dragon egg. Eragon befriends the charming dragon cub, Saphira (voiced with aplomb by Rachel Weisz), and becomes her rider, designating him as the principal warrior in the fight against evil. Jeremy Irons steals the show as the wise and mysterious old man who becomes Eragon’s mentor, guiding him through the tasks of saving a princess (Sienna Guillory) battling an evil sorcerer (Robert Carlyle, TRAINSPOTTING), and fending off hordes of the hideous Urgals. All of this will strike the seasoned fantasy viewer as familiar territory, but the formula is given life by veterans Malkovitch and Irons, as well as the young Speelers. The film was shot mostly in Hungary, whose breathtaking landscape combines to great effect with excellent cinematography. The special effects, created by LORD OF THE RINGS’ Digital Magic and STAR WARS’ Industrial Light and Magic, more than live up to the precedent set by those films, while the dragon is film’s true star.
