In many ways this should have been a TV series rather than a movie so that the progression can take place, the way it was edited seriously let the film down, as another reviewer has said, you don't care about the characters in the least, but them you don't really get to know any of them anyway, the basis of the story is eventually told at the end, but with the quick jumps that were made, you don't really learn to care about anyone, you might as well watch something with a story as this film fails to keep the viewer interested in what is happening because there really is no story until you understand some of it later. It's a take it or leave it film which needed much more content to make it worthy of watching.

its not bad, and its not great.

with these kinds of fantasy films the world is your oyster when figuring out how to make it. The bench marks in my oppinion are willow and teh princess bride. great adventures that sweep the audience along on a thrill ride where teh characters are interesting and almost lve outside the film, and where you care what happens to them. Well....this Im afraid doesnt achieve either. The overall tone of the film is flat, you dont find yourself caring what happens really, its an ok film which is entirely watchable, but that about it. The performances by two oscar winners are ok but at no point do you find the characters develop, or do you find yourself involved in the film. its a "slay the witch" by the numbers movie that you have seen time and time again. The story is obvious, the people are mainly obvious, and teh dialogue, even the jokes fall flat. I think this is a directional, editing issue more than the actors. For some reason it has ended up as a by the numbers fantasy movie instead of what t could have been which was a franchise possible adventure romp.

In short you wont hate it but I dont think you will be watching it a second time unless in 10 years time you find it on tv late at night with nothing else to watch

Format: DVD
This is a simple story of good vs. evil. Master Gregory (Jeff Bridges) is a knight/spook and the last of his kind who fights "creatures of the dark." He is up against a bunch of them lead by Mother Malkin (Julianna Moore) and not Maleficent as that would lead to a lawsuit. Gregory has been going through apprentices like water and has been following in the latest Hollywood B movie craze by having our hero being someone who drinks too much. His next apprentice to help him fight evil is the seventh son of a seventh son, Tom Ward (Ben Barnes) a scrawny pig farmer who likes to throw knives. He has his own secret. There is also Alice (Alicia Vikander) the niece of Mother Malkin who adds a Romeo and Juliet element to the tale.

I liked the special effects and Julianne Moore as the witch, but who cast "The Dude" in the role of the Master? It was horrible. It ruined an otherwise good film.

Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. Plenty of killing.

After its release was delayed for what seems like forever, this has finally been released.
On the face of it this should be a big dumb bit of silly fun with wizards magic and evil witches.
I'm reality this is just big and dumb. The storyline. Such as it is, isn't up to much. Its as childishly basic as it gets with some walking around and then a fight at the end. You really don't care who wins or why.
Jeff Bridges is almost unintelligible throughout. We spent half the time asking each other to repeat what he said. Why he chose that weird voice is beyond me.
I love popcorn movies and I love watching films I don't have to think too hard about but this just wasn't up to much at all. At least the special effects. Of which there are a lot. Are good

'Seventh Son' may have succeeded in being the worst film I see this year, rather than the 'A' list cast (Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore) grand medieval fantasy adventure it might have been.

It is brought low by too much ruined masonry, a CGI mishmash, pathetic attempts at jokes, a noisy music score, Jeff Bridges never quite getting to grips with his accent, every other performance falling flat, silly dialogue and, would you believe, Julianne Moore in a black feather dress with matching eyeliner. I won't spoil the plot for you, if that isn't too strong a word for the tangle of events that an insanely overactive camera dives in and out of.

Heaven alone knows how, but it actually broke even at the box office.

I went to see this movie because I have a soft spot for dragons & sorcery and thought, hey it has two oscar winners in it, so can't be that bad. I was so very wrong. I wasted 120 minutes of my life watching this terrible, terrible movie. The story line as it is is clunky, badly written and never seems to go anywhere. Jeff Bridges sounds like he is recovering from a stroke whilst breaking in a new set of teeth whilst Julianne Moore wafts around in a Morticia Adams hand me down dress. The young male lead is a bog standard handsome hero who saves the day and his girl but really, by the time this happens, you really do not care. The really scary bit is that the ending seems like it is setting up a sequel which is a prospect to awful to imagine......
