More of a parody of the original books; if I were the creator, I would have sued the director for incompetence.
@igasp4air I agree, I read all of the books and they were amazing and full of detail. The movie was.. not that great. Oh well though. Hopefully he makes more books one day. :)
@igasp4air whoops meant to upvote your comment. apparently there is not a way to undo a vote.
Great movie.
I saw this in the theater way back. I try to imagine that it is a good movie. But as makrusariliu pointed out...if you're expecting the's not close. It has no greatness like to story. The book was just so amazing that the movie...was a huge let down. I wonder if people who did not read the book liked the movie?
This movie is not a terrible movie, but DO NOT watch it if you are expecting anything resembling the books. This movie is so far from the books it is sad. Not only is it obvious that the director didn't read the books, but it seems as if someone had a 7 year old read the books and and write the screenplay, but slipped them acid before they did. When I first saw this movie all I could say was "Really?".

This movie sucks! The book was awesome and I cannot tell you enough times how much I LOVED it. The movie does not follow the plot line at all. It just steals characters and basic ideas from Christopher Paolini and mixed them in a black bag and poured it out to see how the audience would like it. There is no way a sequel can be made. The acting is stilted and horrible. I cannot believe what they have done to my favorite book series. I am so glad they cannot embarrass Paolini anymore. By the way, this book is so new and creative, I cannot believe anyone would think it was like Star Wars!

hi!! im sooooo excited that the eragon movie is coming out,:D i cant wait to see it (although i didnt like what they did to Arya):down: i hope they dont mess the movie up..

I've been looking forward to this movie for quite some time now. It seems as though a few things have been changed though, as in the lord of the rings films. For one, Brom was supposed to have a white beard and be old, he looks as though he has neither. Zarrock, eragons sword supposed to have a tear drop shaped, wire wrapped hilt with a ruby embedded in the pommel and an iridescent red blade. It now has a normal blade that shines A BIT red has a normal shaped hilt with a SAPPHIRE embedded in the pommel.
I suppose its hollywoods way of making things more poetic to SUIT the movie. Despite the few odds and ends, i think we can expect a good movie with some good special effects and battle scenes although i disagree with the character selection.
If you haven't heard of Eragon, Christopher Paolini's bestselling first novel (begun when he was fifteen), or if you only heard of Eragon via the marketing blitz featuring the film adaptation of same, chances are you're not part Eragon's intended "young adult" demographic. First published by his family and later by Alfred E. Knopf, Eragon became a bestseller. With producers looking for the next big fantasy series to follow in the footsteps of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, and the Harry Potter franchise, a novel written by and for teenagers seemed like a potentially lucrative prospect. One hundred and twenty five million dollars later and we get Eragon, an epically derivative fantasy unlikely to appeal to anyone above the age of fourteen (and even that might be a stretch).

Eragon (Edward Speleers) lives on a farm with his uncle Garrow (Alun Armstrong) and his cousin, Roran (Christopher Egan), in Carvahall, a small village in the kingdom of Alagaesia. Eragon discovers an egg-like object on a nighttime hunting trip. After an attempt to barter the object for meat fails, Eragon hides the egg in the barn. With Eragon watching, the egg cracks open and out pops a baby dragon. King Galbatorix (John Malkovich), Alagaesia's despotic ruler, orders Durza (Robert Carlyle), his chief sorcerer, to find and destroy the dragon and its new rider, Eragon. On its first full flight, the dragon grows to full size, acquiring a name, Saphira, and a voice (Rachel Weisz), that Eragon can hear telepathically.

Forced to flee after an attack by Durza's forces, Brom (Jeremy Irons), a villager with more than a few secrets of his own, steps in to help Eragon. As Eragon's mentor, Brom helps Eragon adjust to his role as a dragon rider and potential savior for the people of Alagaesia. Brom hopes to bring Eragon and Saphira to the Varden, rebels dedicated to defeating Galbatorix, and the Varden's mountain stronghold, Farthen D
