Are You a Seventh Son?
Director: Sergei Bodrov
Cast: Jeff Bridges, Ben Barnes, Julianne Moore, Alicia Vikander
In a land, far far away...Ok I tried! We have witchcraft, ghosts, the supernatural, and one heck of a cast! It ends there! Seventh Son is a flick where Mother Malkin, played by Julianne Moore, is a bad witch. Malkin is held captive in a watering hole only to escape and seek out "Master Gregory" played by Jeff Bridges. Master Gregory keeps losing his sidekicks and seeks the seventh son of a seventh son of a seventh son and on and on and on! Dang people, use some protection why don't you! Bridges reminds me of a drunken Nick Nolte, a blundering, mumbling performance. Why in the hell Julianne Moore took this role is beyond me, other than the $$. This flick is fast pace, but stale and boring. Graphics are decent and the make-up earns it a star...get it as a bonus/free rental from Redbox. Don't pay for this flick or wait for it on the boob tube!
