Really have been wanting to see it, and finally did last night.
I believe the actor who played Eragon was the same actor who played the young Prince William of England in a recent made-for-tv film. If he wasn't the same he should have been...cause that's what I kept thinking though the whole thing.
There is some amazing scenery and filming..and some pretty awful editing. Very choppy, very WHAT WAS THAT ABOUT? (Best unintentional hysterical moment)
When Eragon is discovering that there is a magic word for everything He first realizes it by the word "tree" then runs around and grabs a branch wanting to know what it is...looked sorta familar then someone yelled out...
"W..A...T..E...R It's a Helen Keller moment! " And OMG they were right, it was like watching the scene where Helen Keller discovers langauge.. the entire theater just roared with laughter.
Best part of the film, easily Jeremy Irons..(Hey common, it's SCAR) He did an amazing performance. I personally felt that another 20-30 min of footage, with properly added a min here and there, with better editing would have made a world of difference. Lots of plot holes..big enough to fly a dragon through. But will I see it again..Oh yeah..it will be part of my video collection. A good little film, but could have been a whole lot better.
