Okay, wow. I love these books and I"m seriously disapointed. My dad didn't even read the book and he said this was a let down. This movie started out great, the casting is amazing (although it would be nice if some of the important characters were actually IN the movie...Katrina, twins, i have to go on?) . All in all - it had great potential. I know for a fact that there are hundreds of

No! this movie sucked so bad it was like the makers didn't even read the freakin books!!!! Eragon is of all times one of my favorite books; I've read it six times and the movie was not even a comparison to the book I am highly let down and disapointed at the way this horrible movie turned out. I am not looking forward to the second one at all.

I agree with T MAn!!! And Christopher Paolini stated that he "enjoyed" the movie!!! What a rip off! 2/3 of the book was left out!

Eragon is likely to center on its place among the likes of "Dragonheart," "Reign of Fire" and the rest of the mediocre dragon flicks. Full Review

It's a pleasant enough fantastical adventure, but it does feel naggingly derivative. Full Review

Though the movie, which was adapted from a book written by Christopher Paolini when he was a teenager, aims high by ripping off the classics (even down to Eragon’s murdered uncle), what it most recalls are the cheesy lost sword-and-sorcery epics from the '80s, awful movies in the vein of "Yor: The Hunter From the Future" and "The Blade Master."

It's hard to imagine anyone having the patience to sit through this movie except perhaps a handful of 11-year old boys seeking vicarious wish fulfillment. Full Review
