Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Below Average Eragon offers some pretty images but it's soulless and heartless and not even worth seeing on DVD.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average It's a pleasant enough fantastical adventure, but it does feel naggingly derivative.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 121 moviegoers:These opinions are decent but this certainly isn't going to be another "Lord of the Rings."
CHILDREN:As expected, CHILDREN LOVED "ERAGON"!
TEENS:Great Opinions! A little over half rated "Eragon" as "Fantastic," with most of the remaining half rating it "Very Good," or higher. Only a small percentage rated it average to below average. Males and females enjoyed it equally.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:A little better than half of the males truly enjoyed "Eragon," rating it "Very Good," or higher. That's pretty good but it's not great considering most of the remaining half rated it "Fair," which is below average.
ADULTS: The male and female opinions are about equal. Around three-quarters enjoyed "Eragon" very much. Most of the remaining quarter rated it "Good," which indicates an average movie. I can easily recommend "Eragon" as A GREAT FAMILY MOVIE!
