Seventh Son is awesome and awful at the same time

5 second plot: Jeff Bridges is an old 'spook': he captures and/or kills creatures of the dark. He's looking for a new apprentice. The only guys he can consider are seventh sons of seventh sons. He finds hope in Tom, an apprentice with a slightly new approach to fighting witches. He will need to get up to speed fast, because there's an evil witch on the loose who wants to rule the world.

5 second review: This movie's got big names, a big budget, good special effects and a solid fantasy-level approach, so what in the world went wrong? Nobody seems to like this movie. I definitely didn't like Jeff Bridges' dialogue and his speech impediment but for me personally everything else was pretty entertaining. Too bad he talks a lot.

IMDb score: 5,6/10
