Eragon– Let me start off with stating that I haven’t read the book, so I cannot compare the movie against it. With that said, I thought the movie was pretty good. I personally was interested in seeing how they portrayed the dragon. Being a fan of dragons, I enjoy seeing how different artists view what dragons should look like and how they move. The computer graphics used in Eragon for the dragon is blended well with the real environment, even at the points were the character walks up to and mounts the dragon in a single shot.
The story is good. It is your basic good verses evil storyline. If you are not familiar with it, the story is about a medieval kingdom ruled by an evil king. A young farmer stumbles across a dragon egg and takes care of it until it hatches. Once the dragon hatches and matures he becomes a dragon rider and eventually joins the battle against the evil king.
The acting and editing is good (again, especially the special effects), however it was a little rough in the beginning. I give the movie a B over all and would recommend it to anyone who is interested in this genre.
