Seventh Son

PLOT:

In a time long past, an evil is about to be unleashed that will reignite the war between the forces of the supernatural and humankind once more. Master Gregory (Jeff Bridges) is a knight who had imprisoned the malevolently powerful witch, Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore), centuries ago. But now she has escaped and is seeking vengeance. Summoning her followers of every incarnation, Mother Malkin is preparing to unleash her terrible wrath on an unsuspecting world. Only one thing stands in her way: Master Gregory. In a deadly reunion, Gregory comes face to face with the evil he always feared would someday return.

What people are saying:

“Dear god this was awful Jeff Bridges does a really bad Gandalf impression throughout, not even Julianne Moore can save this turkey. Costumes are pretty, locations are gorgeous, the story is one cliche after another, and the CGI isn’t that good. ” 1 star

“Not a bad movie at all. the plot holds together, the monsters are good (although I wish there had been more of them). It’s hardly a surprise that the “critics” would trash a movie like this (if it had been in French with subtitles they would have lauded it).” 3 1/2 stars

“Despite moronic dialogue and typically insipid acting from the younger leads (no doubt cast more for their looks than acting chops), I still found there were enough enjoyable fantasy elements here to keep me interested enough to finish the film. Yeah, I’m setting the bar just that low for a movie to get three stars from me.” 3 stars

“With such a cast, it fails as entertainment. Bad writing and directing along with a poorly chosen story board, someone did not have their on the pictures … isn’t that the job of the producers ? Casting Jeff Bridges as a bumbling lead is the biggest failure here. He added nothing to this movie.” 2 stars

“Seventh Son” moves at a fairly quick pace and has a sense of humor about itself. That doesn’t mean it’s thrilling, or funny. Just that it’s a quickly forgotten pile of junk.” 2 stars
