Screw this movie. There, I'm going to get that out of the way right off the bat. Despite several delays, a change of studio and plenty of time to do reshoots (if they even did any. I am not sure), this is a film that was unable to be saved. It's a woefully unforgivable mess that makes very little sense, but doesn't seem to really care either. The film, thank God, doesn't really appear to think highly of itself. Sure, it doesn't think it's a bad film, but it knows it's nothing amazing and tries to play off that. Unfortunately, this doesn't work and the final result is somehow worse than it was looking like it was going to be.
The rest of it, unsurprisingly, is about just as good as the green screen, which is more noticeable than Julianne Moore's makeup. It's formulaic, predictable, poorly paced, even more poorly acted and utterly stupid. Seriously, nothing in this movie bears any resemblance of this strange thing we call 'logic.' It's over the top, cheesy as hell and excruciating to sit through. Much like two other films to come out so far this year, I have no doubt that Seventh Son will be appearing on my worst of 2015 list come December.
