Consensus: Seventh Son squanders an excellent cast and some strange storyline ingredients, leaving audiences with one disappointingly dull fantasy adventure.

Chicago Sun-Times

"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.

A strange movie that manages to be both ridiculous and bland, its chief point of interest is the spectacle of a great actor caught in career decline.

Seventh Son has all the requisite parts: witch hunters, witches, a naive apprentice, dragons, simple townsfolk and, err, guys with axes for arms.

It's a loud, joyless mess.

Sometimes you get halfway through a movie and you can't believe that what you're seeing made its way from Los Angeles or someone's Los Angeles computer to where you're sitting.

Bridges comes along and gives exactly the right perversity to make things fun in a dippy, loopy way, and so the aggregate effect of Seventh Son is not, in fact, boredom.

Impressive set design and visuals, excessive CGI, and a loud score from Marco Beltrami can't fully compensate for bland character development and a predictable narrative that rushes along on a linear trajectory.

No masterpiece, but a welcome February surprise with a lively cast and rugged action.

'Seventh Son' suffers from fatal Hobbit-osis.

This was definitely a movie filmed by cameras. My favorite part of this experience was the Lime Cherry Icee that I drank.
