the whole movie just seemed generic, like those crappy movies made for the scifi channel. there were alot of holes in the plotline, ex: eragon suddenly starts spurting out all these magic words. how did he know them cause it wasn't explained. john malkovich's acting was dog poop (as well as everyone else's) and the indoor sets looked too plain.
the only character i even sorta liked was the evil shade, even though he reminded me of some 80's metal band singer.
did u see the ripoff scenes from star wars and lord of the rings? lame-o.
