"As darkness falls, the last dragon will choose its rider."

PG

  • Genre: Fantasy, Action, Adventure, Family
  • Studio: Fox 2000 Pictures
  • Subtitled | Widescreen | Duration: 120 Mins

Overview:
Set in a world of dragons and sorcery, Eragon fails to conjure the magic of Christopher Paolini's bestselling book. Newcomer Ed Speleers stars (with some initial uncertainty) as the farm boy of the title who becomes a "dragon rider", threatening the tyrannical rule of King Galbatorix (a gnashing John Malkovich). Jeremy Irons employs a dry sense of humour as Eragon's mentor Brom, which helps to alleviate some of the tedium as the youngster struggles to decide what his true mission is. Rachel Weisz voices Saphira, the winged beast that carries Eragon into battle, although getting there proves to be a dizzying ride. First-time director Stefen Fangmeier provides occasional distraction from the dithering script with adrenaline-fuelled flying scenes. But sadly the CGI effects aren't good enough to make Saphira an emotionally engaging character, so the relationship between her and Eragon fails to spark.
