Eragon is a total rip off of the original Star Wars story, with even worse dialog. Add in the blurry combat sequences and unfathomable fantasy world of The Lord of the Rings movies, then sprinkle some salt on the scenery for Jeremy Irons.
The story is compressed and disjointed, the dialog is campy and trite, the characters are not developed to the point where you care about them, and are completely overwhelmed by the special effects, which are good.
It’s not the worst movie I’ve ever seen, but even though the story needed more development to make sense, I could not wait for it to be over.
1 out of 5 bones, only because the dragon was cool.
