Product Description

In his homeland of Alagaesia, a farm boy happens upon a dragon's egg -- a discovery that leads him on a predestined journey where he realized he's the one person who can defend his home against an evil king.

While it owes much of its appeal and appearance to the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Eragon can stand on its own as an enjoyable fantasy for younger viewers. Faithfully adapted from the bestselling novel by teenage author Christopher Paolini, this boy-and-his-dragon tale offers clean, fast-paced family entertainment without compromising the darker qualities of Paolini's novel (the first in what is known as the "Inheritance" trilogy). The plot centers on 17-year-old peasant farmboy Eragon (played by appealing newcomer Ed Speleers) who discovers a mysterious blue object that turns out to be an egg that eventually hatches to reveal Saphira, a blue-scaled dragon that quickly grows to full-size. According to prophecy, Eragon is destined to be a dragon-rider like those who once protected a benevolent kingdom, thus reviving an ancient conflict against the army of King Galbatorix (John Malkovich), a former dragon rider who turned to evil, now in alliance with a! dark-magic "Shade" sorcerer named Durza (Robert Carlyle). While the movie serves up familiar fantasy elements and offers little if anything new to fans of the genre (or anyone who's read the books of Anne McCaffrey and Ursula K. Le Guin), it's visually impressive (especially the dragon scenes, with Rachel Weisz providing the telepathic "voice" of Saphira) and full of timeless wisdom, much of it delivered by Eragon's heroic mentor Brom (Jeremy Irons), himself a former dragon rider with memories of past battles and hope for Eragon's future. Add a fair warrior-maiden named Arya (Sienna Guillory) and you've got all the ingredients for a worthwhile (if not particularly original) fantasy that points directly to a sequel. Whether that's a good or a bad thing is up to individual viewers to decide. --Jeff Shannon

Honestly, I wanted to cry as I sat there in the theater watching this movie. What a waste of ten bucks. If you have read the books, and excitedly waited out the release of the movie, you are undoubtably as disappointed as I am. The books had such scope, like a Lord of the Rings junior. There was no way to get everything important shoved into an hour and a half movie. Why not go ahead and make a 2 and a half hour epic? I'd have watched it!!

Here is what you'll miss in the movie:

-The relationship between Brom and Eragon is very underdeveloped, so much so that when Brom dies, you're like, whoopdeedoo.

-Saphira ages from a tiny dragon into just about full grown in one ridiculous moment.

-Eragon's journey with Murtagh is like, 5 seconds long. No Hadrac desert, no bonding. Again, you could care less about Murtagh in the movie.

-The Dwarven kingdom was UNBELIEVABLY disappointing. If you read the book, you probably had quite a vision workded up in your head, with the Star Rose and all. The movie pretty much annihilates all that. And the dwarves themselves are stupid-looking. You can't slap some armor on a guy with a beard and call them a dwarf.

-Arya is an ELF. Did they really go over on the budget that they couldn't even give her POINTED EARS???

-The battle between Eragon and the Shade is like nothing. I was so bored.

Over all, this movie takes a perfectly paced book and puts it into hyperdrive, taking all the wonder and fun right out of it. You'll sit down to watch this movie and all you'll be able to do is watch in horror as they slaughter it. It is a terrible shame. Had they had a larger CGI budget, blatantly copied some LOTR stuff, and had Mr.

I know that they state in the movie that Eragon is based on the book, I ask WHAT Part? It is like they pulled all of the pages out of the book threw them in the air, stacked it back together and slapped it on screen. So frustrating. OK the names are the same, the dragon is blue but really that is about it.

1. Why did they say anything about Arya being a Princess? That is revealed in the second book and it is a big part of her story.
2. Were the Hell are the Dwarfs and who was that guy in with the Staff and the long beard, I have read the book and I could look him up but I should not have too.
3. Murtagh was put in a secure room with food and a bed and treated well for saving Eragons life and not a cell.
4. Who the hell cast Joss Stone as Angela, read the book before you cast, horrible acting, too young and her werecat, were was he?
5. Robert Carlyle was good but not great, he looked fantastic but just not menacing enough
6. Jeremy Irons was a good Brom, Brom was supposed to be older, but at least Jeremy's presence to the part made it believable.
7. Rachel Weisz's voice as Saphira sounded lovely, but it was ran through a computer for special effects echoing.
8. They never mentioned that Brom's dragon's name was Saphira and that Eragon named her without that knowledge. She did not name herself, nor did she morph into a large dragon in the period of 10 seconds.
9. The Vartan did not test Eragon at the entry and they did not just take Arya into the healers, they used her as a way to break Eragons stubbornness.
10. The relationship between Eragon and Saphira was more like a pet and owner than respectful partners.

Eragon- While the actors and special effects were excellent, I couldn't get over the story line. I read and liked the book. They skipped and completely left the story line in the movie so often it was hard to keep up. If I were Chris Paolini I would be furious at how they butchered my story. The dumbest part was when Saphira was first learning to fly. She took off a baby dragon and came back full grown. This book's story was destroyed in the theater. Maybe my expectations were too high as I went to see the movie looking for Lord of the Rings quality and I got a USA up all night with Joe Bob Briggs movie. Had they made this movie 3 1/2 hours long and stayed with the story line it would have rivaled Lord of the Rings. As it is we may never see Eldest in theaters.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
"Eragon" wants to be "Lord of the Rings." It really, really wants to be. In a pinch, it'll settle for "The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe" with a dash of Harry Potter.

But those hoping for a spectacular PG-rated epic shouldn't hold their breaths, because the adaptation of Christopher Paolini's bestseller is a massive bellyflop. The direction is stilted and plodding, the acting is on par with tree stumps, and the whole thing is uninspired -- it never moves beyond "quick cash-in."

A young woman is being chased through the woods by a band of evil soldiers, trying to recapture a bright blue stone she stole from evil King Galbatorix (John Malkovich), but she magics it away. It's found in the woods by a young farm boy, Eragon (Edward Speleers), who unsuccessfully tries to trade it for food. But the stone turns out to be a dragon's egg.

When his home and uncle are destroyed, Eragon escapes with his now-grown dragon Saphira (Rachael Weisz) and a mysterious stranger named Brom (Jeremy Irons), who knows a lot about the Dragon Riders. Now Eragon and Saphira may be the only hope for the land, not to mention the captive elf princess he's dreaming about, and whom he has to rescue from the evil king.

Dragons, damsels in distress, magic spells, an evil king and his evil wizard, and a Young Hero in the Luke Skywalker mold... well, "Eragon" had a lot of obstacles in front of it from the start. It sounds like the love child of "Star Wars" and "Lord of the Rings"... except it's infinitely more clumsy than either of those movies.

And the director doesn't help -- Stefan Fangmeier is horribly crude and clumsy in his directing, with a style that manages to be both stilted and choppy. The scripting is even worse.

how was it that bad!!!
Compared to the book, this movie was horrible. I was so disappointed when I saw it because I had been anticipating the release, but I walked out the movie theater wanting my money back. The whole thing was too rushed and the character development never happened. This movie had so much... Read More

Anyone see the extended edition?
That's my problem, too. I don't want to waste money on an extended version without knowing how many minutes it's been extended, 6 minutes of 10 to 15 seconds spread throughout the movie is pointless. Does the extended version add to the story or the frustration?

I liked It !
I did too, but I think many of those who've read the book (I haven't) feel cheated. This often happens when any book is made into a motion picture. I still, however, don't think this movie deserves all the one-stars it has gotten.
