I must say that if you have never read the series, this is very enjoyable. The acting is good as well as the special effects. As a fan of the series though, I was expecting a lot out of this movie, and I was a bit disappointed. They got the majority of the plot points but left out crucial ones that would have to know if they were to make the next movies and others they failed to elaborate (Angela's scenes and the prophecy). Plus, Galbatorix, frequently shown in the movie was not even described to us until the last half of the fourth book. They left out Elva, who helps drive the series in book 2 to the end, and they got the location and death of Brom wrong while forgetting to introduce to us a main character: Orik and another important character Jeod.

This was the worst waste of film ever created! It completely tarnished the original story because it changed the plot of the book, resulting in an absolute horrific abomination that will stain the reputation of the film industry forever. The script was very poorly edited and did not stick to the book's plot. The overall film was way too short and did not give the audience a prolonged sense of excitement that an average film would give. Also, John Malkovich did not give the best impression of being Galbatorix, who was considered to be the greatest evil in the whole series while the guy who played Durza gave a more convincing evil demeanor. The acting was also terrible despite the fact that the film had an all-star cast. They should completely redo the movie so that they get it right next time, but Mr. Paolini does not lift a finger to make the movie as it should have been. I would highly recommend the books, but not this movie.

Just like most fans of the book...I was angry at how different the movie was than the book. To hammer home the point...a lot of sub-plots were either changed or deleted altogether. To a point, the similarities between the book and movie are a boy named Eragon and a dragon named Saphira. However, if you can detatch yourself from the book and watch the movie for the movie it is pretty cool. Movies rarely - if ever - live up to their book, why should this one be different? If you want to "see" the book, then re-read it...I have - many times - and still enjoy it...but don't blame the movie. The movie is not the book and the book is not the movie. My final stand = good movie, better book

The acting was terrible, the plot was stupid, an they totally changed everything that was in the book. Well, except that there was a boy who rescues a dragon. Plus, Saphira looks somewhat like a giant blue chicken. The book, however, is amazing. So just forget the movie, read the book.

Although there are better fantasy adventure movies than Eragon, such as the Harry Potter series or Princess Of Theives: Daughter of Robin Hood, Eragon was still a very good movie. Even though the dragon was drawn, it was cool how it breathed fire and crystals. Although, the movie was pretty predictable, you could understand why they wrote it that way.

It was a really great fifteenth century movie. It wasn't the best I've ever seen, but I thought it was cool. If I could change anything, I'd change some of the comedy parts, but other than that I loved it.

I read Eragon when it came out several years ago, and loved it. I read its sequel Eldest when it came out, and have enjoyed it as well. So needless to say when it was announced that Eragon was being made into a motion picture, I was excited. Further more as you can imagine I was one of those crazy people anxiously waiting for the film to hit theaters and saw it opening night. Now as I have read Eragon and Eldest several times (and am eagerly looking forward to reading the final installment) the movie was a let down. It was rushed in some places, acting was rather stiff (such a shame with amazing actors such as Dijmon Hounsou, Jeremy Irons, John Malkovich, and Rachel Weisz.), and the important sub plots that would allow the film to branch out into the Eldest movie were dropped completely (Ronan's love for Katrina and Sloan's disaproval). But alas through all the goofs I went to see the movie a second time with my younger sister, who had not read the book, and with her youthful excitement and ignorance to the novel's sub plot drops, and skewered plotline, I found myself enjoying the fantasy of Eragon and his cliche uttering dragon, Saphira. I went as far as seeing the movie a total of four times in theaters, each time with a different friend or family member, and each time I found myself continually enjoying the new story line, and actually had to reread the book, so I ould COMPLETELY seperate the movie from the book. The movie, I must admit, is very addicting even though it suffers from cardboard acting, an odd script, a rushed plot, and plot drops, that I owuld go as far as comparing it to the two Harry Potter movies that started it all, Sorcerer's Stone and Chamber of Secrets. Because of you remember they were poorly acted, had weird script lines, seemed at times rushed, and there were severe changes and plot drops, and yet people loved them! Harry Potter movies 1 & 2 are my least favorite, compared to the following two movies, but are rather additcing as I find myself wanting to watch them over and over again when ever I can. Eragon is the same way. Give this movie a chance and you'll find that it will be somewhat worth the time. If you feel the urge to only rent the movie, do so, but for the ignorant movie watchers, enjoy the movie, read the book, then watch the movie again.

The book was amazing. The movie, personally I hated it. It didn't follow the story line at all. Of course, its a must-see for all Eragon fans, but it is disappointing.

I think the Director did a great job with the movie, and the special effects were outstanding. However the movie was very rushed and it skipped alot of important info from the book. But I did enjoy the movie, I know when this movie comes out on DVD I am so going to buy it!

Eragon, by Christopher Paolini, is a very mythical but intriguing story about a boy who takes an epic journey of his life. This boy, Eragon, raises a dragon into becoming fierce and powerful. Eragon and his dragon, Sapphire, travel across the lands of Alagalsia to fight off the evil characters who opposed the king. Eragon and Sapphire are successful, taking on anyone evil in their path and annihilating them. I recommend this book to readers who like adventure and action. Although this book is very mythical, it has a strong plot which will mesmerize readers into continuing with the series.

I just about walked out of this movie in the theater!!! The only thing similar to the book is the fact that there is a dragon and a boy who rescues her. The plot is laughable and the acting is worse!!! Read the book and use your imagination and you will have a better movie than this.

This movie was awesome because I liked Eragon's sword, Zar'roc, and the fight scenes. My most favorite part was when Eragon got his sword. The sword was amazing because it could burn any person who got cut by it. They had good visual effects with Saphira the dragon breathing fire all over the bad guys, and with Saphira the dragon breathing crystals over Brom when he died.

When I first saw this movie i thought it was great. I loved it so much that i decided to read the book. After I read the book I watched the movie again, and man did it SUCK!!! They miss so many main events it didn't even make sense, the characters were all wrong, and the acting was worse than my kindergarten graduation play. Lets not forget the ending, now they have to make a sequel even though nobodys going to watch it. And bcuz they missed so many events,the 2nd one wouldn't make any sense. I say they should just make a new one, and this time, for the love of god, plz, do it rite!!! If you look and the story line and characters of this movie and compare it to Lord of the Rings, all Eragon really is is a cheap attempted remake of Lord of the Rings. I think Chris Paolini and Peter Jackson should suit.

This movie was awsome and ya I know that they didn't follow the book but it was still a really great movie but I think anyone who sees the movie should read the book first because it gets confusing when you dont know anything about it

The book was so good and the movie was so rushed! I didn't even think that the characters followed the same personalities as in the book. And things were different and weird, like with Arya! What's up with that?? Some parts were the same but overall I was really disappointed. I guess if I hadn't read the book then maybe my opinion would be different, but to anyone who read the book and is a die hard fan, I'm not sure they should see it. I was yelling at the TV before Roran even left!

They really should have stuck to the book a little bit better. They left out Katrina, which I think was a vital character in the beginning. I enjoyed it, though. The part where Saphira grows up in, like, five seconds is a little out there, but hey, that's what they did. I also think they left out quite a bit, which considering the length of the picture, wasn't at all necessary. It was good. I would have loved it, I'm sure, if I wasn't expecting it to live up to the book. Overall it is well worth seeing.
