More Info:
  • Jordan Mintzer

    If anything, the movie offers up the guilty pleasure of seeing Bridges and Moore duel it out in front of countless green screens and a few stunning Canadian backdrops – two great actors clawing at each other with magic staffs and fake fire, trying to survive in the netherworld of heroic kitsch.

  • Peter Debruge

    Given the fine past work of its many parents, there was clearly potential here, but as delivered, Seventh Son amounts to nothing short of a creative miscarriage.

    Variety Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    By-the-numbers, generic plots no longer work and that, unfortunately, is what Seventh Son delivers. 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.

  • Glenn Kenny

    Surprise! One doesn’t want to damn the movie with faint praise by saying “it’s not that bad,” but that’s kind of the most objectively accurate description of it, in all honesty.

  • Peter Keough

    To its credit, despite a rough start (witch burning and all that), Seventh Son does not succumb to misogyny.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    Seventh Son is brisk and unpretentious, though the fact that these two qualities can be considered remarkable probably says more about the state of modern genre filmmaking than it does about the movie itself.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Thomas Lee

    The result is a movie that serves as little more than an excuse for Moore and Bridges to camp it up.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    It’s a thoroughly incoherent, generally inane and surprisingly entertaining tale of witches and monsters and what legendary film critic Joe Bob Briggs calls “beast fu,” all set in a sub-Tolkien, sub-“Game of Thrones” pseudo-medieval universe.

  • Kyle Smith

    Seventh Son is not a good movie, but it’s also not a pretentious one, and I call that a fair trade.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    The film is overstuffed, but it’s swift and unpretentious, barreling through a non-stop series of action setpieces without pausing too long to take a breath. The busyness doesn’t eradicate the clichés, much less enrich the film emotionally or thematically, but there’s no time to think about them when Bodrov and his screenwriters, Charles Leavitt and Steven Knight, are moving along to the next sensation. It’s transporting in that sense, and that sense alone.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Though the film sat in drydock for a year, partly so technicians could convert it to 3-D, it looks as dull as it sounds.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Kyle Anderson

    (Bridges) has a tendency to make mistakes, especially when it comes to science fiction and fantasy titles. He has followed up the minor disasters that were "R.I.P.D." and "The Giver" with Seventh Son.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Ken McIntyre

    A swollen budget, a mini-Big Lewbowski reunion, and top-notch digital effects fail to enliven proceedings in yet another ho-hum dragon chaser based on a YA novel.

    Total Film Full Review
  • William Goss

    This swords-and-sorcery throwback has little imagination on display, instead doubling down on computer-generated flair to pass the time.

    Empire Full Review
  • Julia Alexander

    Seventh Son is indescribably disappointing because it could have been a refreshing treat for genre fans. After spending years in development, the final product is laughably abysmal, and perhaps worst of all, utterly forgettable upon viewing.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    This rambunctious swords ’n’ sorcerers fantasy flick has grubby, pseudo-medieval CGI style to burn, but precious little in the way of anything new to add to this sort of genre storytelling.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • James Rocchi

    Seventh Son tells a story of dragons, witches, ghosts and ogres, but the most fantastic thing about it is the idea that someone thought this lumpy, bumpy and swollen sack of tired tropes and cluttered CGI would attract audiences.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Kerry Lengel

    Seventh Son is recommended only for the most far-gone of fantasy addicts, for whom it will serve as a sort of methadone. It won't exactly satisfy, but it will tide you over until the next season of "Game of Thrones."

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Director Sergei Bodrov’s movie is based on a kids’ book in which Tom was a 12-year-old, and the actors wisely pitch their performances to a young crowd.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • David Hiltbrand

    If the Brothers Grimm had devoted themselves to farce rather than scary fairy tales, they might have produced something like Seventh Son, a whacko sword-and-sorcery exercise.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Moore goes into operatic mode as Mother Malkin, a nasty witch who morphs into a menacing winged dragon. The worst performance, however, belongs to Jeff Bridges as a marble-mouthed, curmudgeonly knight named Master Gregory.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    The only question that’s worth considering in Seventh Son is whether this all-star B-movie is bad enough to cost Julianne Moore her “Still Alice” Oscar. And the answer to that is, “Not really.”

    Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    Seventh Son not only offers no new spin on its bland, by-the-numbers story, it also fails to deliver any generic pleasures; I’m not sure this movie could even keep a young child engaged.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    If nothing else, it’s amusing to imagine what [Mr. Bridges] and Ms. Moore chatted about between takes and how each managed to keep from cracking up, more or less.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Torching “witches” is the one part of the story that has some historical basis, and adds an uncomfortable edge of misogyny to this otherwise empty fantasy.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    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.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Elise Nakhnikian

    As is often the case in films like this, Seventh Son is at its weakest when it tries to leaven its brink-of-disaster gravity with a little nerdy humor.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    Seventh Son would hardly be the first film to use "strong female characters" as a means of waving its misogyny under the radar, but it’s seldom carried off as depressingly as this.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Simon Abrams

    Jeff Bridges's abysmally campy performance may be the worst thing about disposable sword-and-sorcery fantasy Seventh Son, but it's also the only memorable thing.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    I know it's early, but Seventh Son may actually be the worst movie of the year. It will most certainly be a contender. The medieval/fantasy/action/drama/romance hits pretty close to a perfect 10 on the egregious scale.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    It is a staggeringly bad film, made up of lots of faulty pieces.

    HitFix Full Review
  • Drew Taylor

    Nothing in Seventh Son is compelling, interesting or noteworthy, though you can feel the strain of the filmmakers attempting to set up a potential franchise.
