The plot of Seventh Son is pretty good. Ben Barnes is smart and knows how to use that smartness for his own good. For kids it is a little weird and awkward at the same time they don’t really know what is going on and are confused plus no one can be trained to use a sword, throw knives and use magic in about 3 weeks. It has fun fantasy elements, though nothing we haven’t really seen before. It has lots of cool monsters, though there is an overabundance of CGI. There are some interesting choices of cast members, but they all overact. The plot is shallow, and somewhat predictable. All together, it’s an entertaining film, there just isn’t enough substance to make it a memorable experience.
