An evil witch has returned and threatens to turn the world into absolute darkness unless a drunken old knight can train the Seventh Son in about a week in the new Universal Studios theatrical release.
Jeff Bridges stars as Master Gregory, a knight that hunts down dark creatures and who imprisoned the witch Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore) for years. Yet, now she has broken free and is not just looking for revenge, she reassembles her entire crew of henchmen.
Gregory’s only chance to stop her is to recruit the seventh son of a seventh son, who is a young farmer by the name of Thomas Ward (Ben Barnes). Ward does not offer much at first, but there is a power inside of him waiting to be released.
Spectacular special effects with cool action scenes are the best parts of the movie. Barnes is a weak lead actor in a film that has the potential to be a blockbuster success. Awesome adventure that loses the audience at the points where Barnes has to get his character across and he fails to do so in a way that you care about him. This does not ruin the flick as Bridges is what you expect and Moore is a solid villain.
If action and violence in cool 3D is what you want you will not be disappointed. Not the best in storytelling, but still worth watching.
