The movie sucked the kid playing morgerth was an idiot when he to 5 minites to shlash an an urgal I almost pucked. Eragon the book was a good book witch i enjoyed but the cast was horrible for the book they didn't represent Arya in the least and they didn't follow the book at all. It was as if each of the production comitee read one chapter and tried to peice them together bettween themsleves.

I borrowed the first book awhile ago, but haven't got to read it yet.  I also bought a bunch of other books for $1 each, so I have a whole lot to read right now.  One of the $1 books I got was Writers of the Future v. XXI; one of the stories is by Eric Stone (who has his own forum on these boards)... haven't got around to reading that one either, but looking forward to it.

I thought this movie was a bit of a mediocre at best. The acting was sub-par, the story line moved to quickly and again the acting sucked The books on the other hand are fantastic. I was able to get into them very quickly and was engaged throughout. My recommendation is to forget the movie and read the books, much better choice!

I felt that the book was OK, but it needed to be drafted another time or two before release.

The movie however, it was just a shear and utter disappointment for too many reasons to bother listing.

Has anyone watched this movie with the Rifftrax (former Mystery Science Theater guys) commentary? It makes it totally worth watching. Absolutely hilarious.

I watched Eragon once, and it was with the Rifftrax commentary.  Hilarious.  Highly recommended.
Of course, [Quixote] carried it a bit too far. He thought that every windmill was a giant. That's insane. But, thinking that they might be...

THe first time I saw it was with the Rifftrax. Is probably one of the better Rifftrax I've seen/heard.

The movie was horrible. The acting was bad. The casting was bad. The action was bad. And the dragon didn't even look like a dragon! It looked like the offspring of a lizard and the woman from X-Men or whatever that series is. In the book, everyone's always oh so scared of her–but in the movie, if I was one of Galbatorix's soldiers and she came to scare me away, I'd fall down and start cracking up. (Normally, I'd like to say then I'd get up and chopped her head off but considering how well coordinated I am I'd probably fall on my sword and gut myself to death 8).) And they barely followed the real storyline at all! They killed off the Ra'zac–WHAT THE HELL??? Absolutely no skill at movie-making whatsoever!

It played out like a SciFi channel original movie. which I LOVE those, but simply because they are so horrible most of teh time. I love B grade movies, but they should consider themselves B grade movies (Bruce Campbell anyone? Army of Darkness? C'mon, you know you loved it!)

Bruce Campbell drives his car back to midieval times and kicks you know what with a chainsaw. Classic B movie from him.
