I saw Eragon
the movie today. I liked it better than the Harry Potter
movies. The acting was much better than I expected. No matter how corny I anticipated a scene to be, most of the characters, especially the main actor who played Eragon
, Ed Speleers, managed to look cool. In fact, the ironic thing is, the supposed anti-hero in the book, Murtagh
, was played by a crappy actor. Murtagh
didn't come off as cool. He seemed like he was trying too hard to be badass.
Since the budget for the movie was $125 million, I expected the special effects to be better. Lord of the Rings
had better special effects & their budget was around that, for ALL
If one can disregard the obvious similarities to Star Wars
& Lord of the Rings
, it's certainly an enjoyable movie.
