Entertaining
10 January 2015 | by nederlandhikerSee all my reviews

Great sets, good acting, adventure, fantasy, good guys, bad guys, magic, dragons, humor and romance. We went to be entertained and we were. Very enjoyable and the good guys win.

If your looking for a critics choice then you might as well stay home, if you use the critics bad reviews as a reason to go. You'll enjoy it, the critics can't act or they would, they simply whine, nitpick and criticize what they themselves are incapable of.

The interaction between characters was easy going and they seemed at ease with one another. Jeff Bridges was perfect in his role and carried the film. The scenery was great and the storyline while simple was well done and fun.

Once again the critics are wrong. Enjoy.
