Personal Movie Review: Seventh Son (Spoiler Free)
Ok, so I am on the road frequently for work and get very bored sitting in the hotel room (I mean PS4 is great and all, but I start feeling like a sluggo after 2-3 straight days of gaming). So I usually occupy my time by going to see a movie. So, I figured I would do short reviews (just my opinions) on the movies I go see....
Seventh Son -
So I originally hadn't planned on seeing this movie. I was going to see The Kingsman, but timing didn't work out like I had planned so I went and saw Seventh Son instead. I had wanted to see this movie when I first saw the trailer for it (seriously though? What trailer doesn't make a move look great?) but then saw it hadn't gotten very good reviews. I usually check user reviews instead of critic reviews. I have to say though, I was mildly surprised by this film. It was much better than I had expected it to be based upon the reviews I had read.
Cast:It was a nice surprise to see Kit Harrington in this film. I felt Jeff Bridges acting was decent, but not anything great. Julianne Moore did a good job as the evil villain. Ben Barnes (who I knew nothing about before this film) did a fairly decent job in my opinion. And Alicia Vikander was smoking hot! I don't think I've ever seen her in anything before, but I hope to see her again as she was stunning!
Plot: So I felt that the story was good, but not great. There were some things that they could have done a lot better with the story. It almost felt like it was a longer story than what they had time for on the screen itself,I guess I would say it felt rushed. I found there to be things that I would have liked more explanation about and never got. The story wrapped around itself pretty well, but definitely left room for a sequel. I don't know that the film did well enough in theaters to warrant a sequel on the big screen, but I could see a sequel being a straight to DVD release.
Rating/Recommendation: I would give this movie 7.5/10
If you are a fan of the fantasy/magic movie genre, I would recommend it. If you don't have any interest in dragons, witches, and sword play, then steer clear of this film.
