If the Brothers Grimm had devoted themselves to farce rather than scary fairy tales, they might have produced something like Seventh Son, a whacko sword-and-sorcery exercise. show more
If anything, the movie offers up the guilty pleasure of seeing Bridges and Moore duel it out in front of countless green screens and a few stunning Canadian backdrops – two great actors clawing at each other with magic staffs and fake fire, trying to survive in the netherworld of heroic kitsch. show more
Seventh Son tells a story of dragons, witches, ghosts and ogres, but the most fantastic thing about it is the idea that someone thought this lumpy, bumpy and swollen sack of tired tropes and cluttered CGI would attract audiences. show more
If you are looking for Oscar movie don't see Seven son. But you want to see Fun movie about the story of good vs evil get the pop corn and have some fun. Jeff Bridges plays the old knight Greg. He is last of knights of his order. Jeff plays his character beautifully.He must find the seven son of the seven son to help him defeat the dark queen ( Julianne Moore) and her army of bad guys. The special effect are excellent. The problem is Ben Barnes as the 7th son is a little weak. Julianne Moore plays her part with twinkle in her eye and has fun doing it. So if you want to see fun old movie were the good guys fight the bad. Then go see this movie. .
I enjoyed this movie, special effects were excellent, story line moved consistently and stayed on topic, always loved Jeff Bridges just sorry at the actor (his apprentice) that died early, he was so cute.
Fun to see Jeff having a ball with this. Good action and predictable but involving story and characters. Worth it to see. But not sure what on earth the Director and Cinematographer were thinking.. The murky atmosphere of virtually the whole movie practically kills it...looks like a direct steal from Monty Python And the Holy Grail.. People banging coconuts and 'Bring out your Dead' kept running in the back of my head.
