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

"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.

The key to enjoying Seventh Son is to keep modest expectations. And, in this case, "modest expectations" probably means you're better off saving your first-run dollars and waiting for cheaper options.

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.

A fantasy adventure film needs more than "cool creatures," a rousing score, and two certifiably over-the-top performances to make a lasting impression.

James Berardinelli

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.

The film is basically a rich man's Uwe Boll version of Dungeons and Dragons -- a lot of tacky visuals, world-building mumbo-jumbo and gooey CGI creatures encased in a narrative vacuum.

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