Went in with no expectations and was pleasantly surprised. No regrets paying to see it in theater which is more than I could say with the third hobbit movie. Reminds me of a merlin/arthur like film sprinkled in with some brothers grimm/season of the witch. Well done, nothing incredible, but no over the top or in my opinion failed special effects or actions. Nothing against any of the actors either. If I had to grade it as a movie over all, not a A but a solid B-B-. For what it did in the medieval fantasy genre especially compared to what we have seen from that genre as of late, it hits the A <more>
there sure. I recommend seeing it in theater, no IMAX or 3D, just standard showing though.
Haters are too blind, too blind to see... (by CaptainBanjax)
WARNING DOESN'T CONTAIN ANY SPOILERS.I bumped into a mystical old prophet the other day, and he looked at me and laughed at me. He then pointed me to a trailer for this movie.After seeing a trailer for this movie, I assumed I was going to get a ripping yarn based on the Iron Maiden album of the same name.Well, I have to say I wasn't disappointed. The story made as much sense as the Can I Play with Madness video and the script made as much sense as the lyrics of the same song.Bottom line is, this movie gave me the sense to wonder, to wonder if I'm free.Can you play with madness? If <more>
you watch this movie, yes you can, you can play with madness...I hope this review was useful.
John DeSantis as Tusk Academy Award (by andrewg-28260)
Well, where do we start? Do we start on the point of Jeff Bridges playing a predictable, senile version of Gandalf from LOTR? Or do we start at the cringe-worthy accent breaks that would cause one to erupt in laughter in the cinema?No, let's start on a positive note. John DeSantis, the 6 foot 9 actor made of pure talent, charisma and charm and his role as the true hero of the movie, "Tusk" swept the audience off their tacky, rusted cinema seats in his performance which would put his cousin Chewbacca to shame. A stellar performance, mind body and spirit. The misunderstood soul of <more>
Tusk emanates through DeSantis' passionate grunts, snores and nightmares which do a top job of drowning out the flat dialogue between lovers in a romantic subplot worse than Spongebob and Gary. But we need to look at the symbolism and meaning of Tusks performance, what is the moral of Tusk? After receiving multiple insults and aggravated verbal abuse by senile gandalf, Jeff Bridges; Tusk does not flinch nor does it degrade the characters enigma for good and his glowing performance. When words are thrown like spears 'You are resilient as your are ugly Tusk' it may corrupt even the strongest characters but the directors strategic motive was to promote resilience and defense against bullies we face in life, at school, at the workplace. Maybe if we were all like Tusk we would all just be a bit more happier.oh and this movie sucks because the killed the bear 0/10
A great movie with just a couple of issues (by hellsone-08411)
I would say, that the movie is a mind-taking fantasy. It is a bit of a fairy tail - Worth Watching!The only issues it has is that some conversations and some of the characters behavior are a bit... I'd say wooden... simple. Part of the conversations do not bring the importance that they are supposed to and they sound a bit useless this way. Characters act quite stiffly and... somehow unprepared for the act they are supposed to do I hope I express myself understandably so far .Apart from that all else brings a great experience of the movie.Combats are not boringly long very important by <more>
my opinion and not with too much flips, jumps, twisting and CGI apart from fairy creatures . CGI itself is 8/10 points, by my opinion. Considering, it is a fantasy and it needs the CGI every corner of the way of the movie and yet, the effect of it is not dropped at places where it is, indeed, not needed. It is not annoyingly too much!The movie is worth the money at 3D, IMAX or any other way you can afford it. It is good for getting your head out of reality for a bit and see some favorite fantasy creatures or some new. I had good time watching it twice!!! :DAlso do not expect that it is an ecranisation of the books and do not be disappointed by that FACT. It does not say anywhere that it is!!! I think P.S. I hope I have expressed myself well enough!
I don't understand how some critics can be so cruel. This movie was effen excellent. Great acting, great plot, great special effects, really shows the the division in ideals about witchcraft. Some think witchcraft is evil actually most and some think it's good, bad or a mixture of both, depends on your perspective of things. I'm a practicing witch, and I get it. Most witches are portrayed as evil and must be destroyed, as they should be. But some are good and a lot of people just don't understand us. The idea of destroying something you don't understand upsets me <more>
greatly. My focus is of balance. I tend to be in the middle. This movie focuses in the differences of the good/evil thing very well. There is a tender understanding of the differences portrayed in this movie eventually. You will shift sides throughout till you finally get it. The moral is we all need to get along, no matter our differences, and that makes it so beautiful it brings me to tears. Watch this movie. It's awesome.
Overall I really enjoyed the movie. Granted the plot wasn't richly developed and the green screen shots contrasting to the real life Canadian outdoor shots was obvious. Sometimes I just want to be entertained and I will overlook the shortcomings of a film. Lately a lot of the movies that have came out have had so much that bothers me in the way of horrible dissolving plots, bad acting, bad casting, etc. This movie didn't have anything that insulted my intelligence, so I'm grateful for that. For me the simple plot worked. It was a decently entertaining film that I plan to watch a <more>
couple more times. I am hoping that there will be at least one sequel.
Great sets, good acting, adventure, fantasy, good guys, bad guys, magic, dragons, humor and romance. We went to be entertained and we were. Very enjoyable and the good guys win.If your looking for a critics choice then you might as well stay home, if you use the critics bad reviews as a reason to go. You'll enjoy it, the critics can't act or they would, they simply whine, nitpick and criticize what they themselves are incapable of.The interaction between characters was easy going and they seemed at ease with one another. Jeff Bridges was perfect in his role and carried the film. The <more>
scenery was great and the storyline while simple was well done and fun.Once again the critics are wrong. Enjoy.
An unfortunate failure that was actually very very entertaining (by Robert_duder)
After seeing a trailer or two I was actually quite excited about seeing Seventh Son. Its been awhile since I've seen a good fantasy medieval film and I was looking forward to it. I am very pleased to say that this was nearly a perfect and fun popcorn flick and well worth my time. I'm actually very disappointed that it isn't doing better because I think they could certainly have turned this into a franchise and I couldn't help but think that the film leads into what could be a really terrific TV Series as well. The film however tanked and that won't be happening but please <more>
don't let that deter you from checking this out especially if you enjoy the genre. The story is terrific, the cinematography is great and the story is decent. It has a good cast and terrific action scenes. It has an old school fantasy vibe to it but everything works quite well. It isn't brilliant and it would never take home any awards but I was completely entertained and I would watch it again and that marks a good film in my book. The pacing is good and it has plenty of action to keep you hooked. The romantic storyline is also surprisingly good as well.Ben Barnes leads the cast very well as the latest apprentice to a monster hunter. Barnes has a lot of charisma on screen and he pulls off the role well. I think that at the very least he should get noticed for his part in the film. The always amazing Jeff Bridges plays the haggard and grizzled hunter. He steals every scene he is in although I'm getting a little tired of his grumbling and muffled growl lately and he and Barnes are terrific together. Bridges wins you over quickly and is a great character. Julianne Moore who I have decided to now become a fan of after years of being annoyed by her, because of her literally brilliant performance in Still Alice is pretty good as the evil villainess and witch. She is a little campy and over the top but it works in the context of the film and the story between her and Bridges is quite good. Alicia Vikander is beautiful first of all but she does well as the romantic lead for Barnes. They have really good chemistry and some great scenes together. The various cameos of villains and heroes along the way are familiar and all quite good.The story is that this film went through some very hard times during production including switching directors and casting issues and all kinds of things. Usually a film that has that many issues ends up not doing well and this was no exception. Director Sergey Bodrov has a fair bit of experience in the genre and behind the camera but I'm not sure he knew what to do with this sort of budget and that might be his biggest problem. Still he does some amazing things with the scenery and the special effects are excellent. There really is truly nothing wrong with this film. I don't understand all the backlash against it. Its not Lord of The Rings but it is very entertaining and that for me is good enough! I do absolutely recommend giving it a chance. 8/10
Despite the lousy reviews, pretty damned charming (by 210west)
I've just watched this, on the same day I saw the new "Mad Max" in 3-D, no less , and I have to say that, despite the almost universally dismissive reviews you'll find online, I found "Seventh Son" ten times more enjoyable than the empty and overheated "Max." And also -- thanks to its engaging characters -- considerably more suspenseful. Why were the critics so hard on it? Frankly, I'm mystified. I mean, it's basically just a fairy tale, a medieval fantasy with all the necessary trappings, and unlike most fairy tales on-screen it never becomes <more>
treacly and insipid. It's got lots of CGI dragons flying around, and I guess I must have a greater than average fondness for CGI dragons, because I thought they looked great. It's worth noting, too, that Alicia Vikander is actually more appealing here than she was in "Ex Machina" a film whose critical reception was equally mysterious, albeit in this case too kind . In the ingenue role, she's rather adorable. So are Olivia Williams and Antje Traue, playing surprisingly similar mothers. I think I've fallen in love with them both.Speaking of Olivia Williams, I want to quote something that amused me from Richard Roeper's review available on Rotten Tomatoes . It's a negative review -- practically all of them are -- but he makes a good point: "Ben Barnes who plays Tom is 33. He looks 33. Isn't the kid in the books like 12? ... And if Tom is the seventh son of a seventh son, some of his brothers must be 50. And yet Mam is a hot 45ish. What is happening in that house!"He's right about that; Williams is definitely a hot 45ish.
