Major cheese! Dingdong theatrics. Amateurish writing.
Or perhaps it's all tainted by Jeff Bridges' mumbly mouth performance.
I'm sorry if he has a health problem or some kind of dental issue, but it doesn't change the fact that his sputtering like Marlon Brando in The Godfather makes his character seem like a clown instead of the wise eccentric master he's trying to portray.
The one saving grace is the excellent graphics.

My sense of fantasy and adventure were misdirected by this one. Jeff Bridges is not the actor to play the main character. He just comes off as brash rather than on some kind of mission. And his speech is garbled to the point it is hard to decipher what he is saying. It was interesting to note that Alicia Virkander is in the film. I did not finish watching it.

Rated 6/10.

I honestly couldn't get through the first 30 minutes before I started to lose interest and ultimately turn it off. I was really looking forward to watching this movie but sadly I just couldn't do it.

Sadly this movie could have given the original book series "Spook's Apprentice written by Joseph Delaney" much better justice. I found it very strange that they used all of the characters names from the book and alot of the concepts but completely butchered the storylines and character development. Instead it was like watching randomly flip from one section to another section of the series without concern for plot or thought coherence.
I have no idea why Joseph Delaney would allow his content to be used this way.
I would strongly recommend young readers to read the series instead of trying to watch this hack job of a movie.

Basically no plot, the story is as primitive as plots of some kindergarteners' books. But the special effects were impressive, I wouldn't recommend this movie for children though it was rated PG. I watched this movie and gave it 3 stars only because of the special effects. Don't forget to watch the bonus features - they are more interesting than the actual movie.

It's true that the plot in this action/fantasy was predictable, and the acting was wooden, perhaps likely to be blamed on the director. My rating is primarily based on Jeff Bridges' role, 'Spook', and his delivery of such. I thought he was perfect for the character and carried it off flawlessly.

Witches and dragons oh my. Big fan of the genre. This film must have had a big budget because all the CGI special effects seem to grab the attention away from the actors.
Movie was decent but Julianne Moore made an excellent evil witch.

It seems like a movie like this is pumped out once a week by Hollywood and 95% of them are bad. This is one of the bad ones. Jeff Bridges is a good actor; what is he doing in this movie? The witches were boring, except for Kandyse McClure, who's in it for 45 seconds. She seemed interesting, but nothing else about this movie is original, fun, or the least bit entertaining.

It just didn't work despite having good actors and special effects. Children might like it.

All the past quotes disappeared, here is a few and a few more at IMDb to peruse:

-This man says an innocent is at risk. And you do nothing?
On the contrary, I'm doing my best to ignore him.
-I beg of you, do not do this.
Don't worry, boy. This won't be an execution, merely an education.
===
I know you better than you think I do, Tom. Be wise. Be careful. Remember, all you ever need is inside you. Just don't be afraid to look.
===
-If I'm your new apprentice, what happened to the old one?
Wrong question. Wrong questions get wrong answers.
-So he's dead.
