The Kingdom of Alagaesia is ruled by the evil King Galbatorix, a former dragon rider that betrayed his mates and his people in his quest for power. When the orphan farm boy Eragon finds a blue stone sent by Princess Arya, he sooner realizes that it is a dragon egg. When the dragon Saphira is born, Eragon meets his mentor Brom, and becomes the dragon rider foreseen in an ancient prophecy that would set his people free from the tyrant Galbatorix.

Quotes

[first lines]
Brom: [narrating] There was a time when the fierce and beautiful land of Alagaësia was ruled by men astride mighty dragons. To protect and serve was their mission, and for thousands of years, the people prospered. But the Riders grew arrogant, and began to fight among themselves for power.

What my sister thought of Eragon
6 August 2007 | by imdb-15813See all my reviews

My sister recently watched this film after reading and enjoying the books. From the "comments" I heard while she she was watching she seemed very disappointed in the quality of the acting and the fact that the plot was very different from the books.(If you do not want to know anything about the film do not read on.)For example the film makes out Eragon is in control of the dragon when in the book he is not and does not have details such as dragons fire is the same colour as the dragon.Some of the characters and places in the book were also missed out. For people who have not read the books or have no intention to read them the film seems good in its own right but for anyone who enjoys the books watching the film may be a frustrating experience. I advise anyone wanting to watch Eragon to read the books instead.
