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

Richard Roeper
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.

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

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.

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.

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 wraps itself in a bland colored shroud of clichés, making you find reality much more interesting than fiction.

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