SEVENTH SON is neither a particularly good film nor particularly a bad film. It sits somewhere in that horrible place of “average”. There are several bright spots in the film: the visual effects are quite good, especially the dragons and several of the creatures; Dante Ferretti’s production design is good (as expected); the fight scenes are well choreographed; and there is a good performance by the radiant 26 year old Alicia Vikander as Alice, a young woman with a magical secret. However, Jeff Bridges’ performance as Master Gregory, a “last of his kind” witchhunter known as a “spook”, is a bit distracting with his ill-advised “mouth full of marbles” performance. And I can’t say that the story itself is all that memorable.
