Review & Comments
Leave your thoughts about Seventh Son.
Film Journal International - 9/10 by Daniel EaganThe surprise is that by genre standards [Seventh Son isn't] that bad-it's just that everything in it has been done before.
The Playlist - 9/10 by Drew TaylorProjecting noise and spectacle without any emotional investment or thematic undercurrents, "Seventh Son" winds up being a monstrous dud.
GeekNation - 9/10 by Eric D. SniderEveryone involved needs to sit quietly and think about what they've done.
Beliefnet - 9/10 by Nell MinowThe fight scenes are exciting, the visuals and special effects are impressive, and it is fun to see two big actors take on these scenery-chomping roles.
Birth.Movies.Death. - 8/10 by Devin FaraciI'll say this for Seventh Son: it wanted to be over as badly as I wanted it to end.
Kaplan vs. Kaplan - 8/10 by Jeanne KaplanNothing in this film is fully developed, which explains the script problems.
Blu-ray.com - 8/10 by Brian OrndorfWhile never boring, "Seventh Son" is shellacked with excess, emerging as a particularly noisy extravaganza, not an imaginative one.
Minneapolis Star Tribune - 8/10 by Colin CovertNothing here is particularly fresh, but watching it is like seeing a slice of familiar art reworked with a colorful new swatch of Crayolas. Deep? No. Thoughtful? No. A thigh-slapping good time? Oh, yes.
CraveOnline - 8/10 by William BibbianiLet me put it this way: if you loved Krull, you will at least 'like' Seventh Son.
Los Angeles Times - 7/10 by Betsy SharkeyI know it's early, but "Seventh Son" may actually be the worst movie of the year. It will most certainly be a contender.
