      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Eragon is a fantasy epic that lacks any magic, brought down to earth by unconvincing world-building and a litany of stars who seem bemused by the material.

      Felix C I would rather eat my own kneecaps then watch this movie again. The VFX was so awful I thought I was watching a movie from 1237. The VFX artists were so fed up mountain scenes took up half the movie. NEVER WATCH Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/03/24 Full Review Chelsea R YOU GUYS NEED TO MAKE THE OTHER BOOKS IN THE SERIES INTO MOVIES I HAVE ABOUT 58 OTHER PEOPLE THAT AGREE WITH ME ON THIS Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/20/24 Full Review Moppy As a stand alone movie it's a nice fantasy adventure into the world of magic and dragons even with quite nice acting. As an adaptation of the book it's really really bad Rated 3 out of 5 stars 12/07/23 Full Review Joshua D One of the worst movies ever written. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 11/30/23 Full Review Denise D Great movie. If you haven't read the book, you should. This movie follows the book closely. I recommend both the movie and book. There is a total of 3 books. There should be a sequel or trilogy. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/21/23 Full Review Scott C I thought it was ok when I was younger. Admittedly I was young when this came out but I still have fond memories. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 10/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Gregory Kirschling Entertainment Weekly Give Eragon a few years: By then, it might be delightfully bad. Rated: C- Jan 3, 2007 Full Review Peter Bradshaw Guardian John Malkovich finds his loopy, nostril-flaring form as the wicked tyrant and Jeremy Irons, playing the boy's wise mentor, is visibly thinking about his fee. Rated: 1/5 Dec 30, 2006 Full Review Nigel Floyd Time Out A painful reminder of what fantasy cinema was like before the Lord of the Rings trilogy re-wrote the rules. Dec 30, 2006 Full Review Saxon Bullock Film4 Kids too young for Lord Of The Rings may be distracted by this below average fantasy, but for everyone else this is derivative and silly.
