I finally saw the movie version of Eragon. I thought it was ok. Had I not read the book, I think that I would have liked the movie better. They cut out a lot of the book. I know that they had to do this but there were some things that needed to be kept. The movie was only about an hour and a half so it could have been a little longer and explained things. What did you think about it? Did you like the movie? Let me know.
