If you ever need clarification of why The Lord Of The Rings is so good, take a look at Eragon. We’re asked to root for obvious toff Ed Speleers, playing the eponymous prole-with-a-destiny who has to ride a dragon and save the world of Analgesia from the evil Saruman Vader... sorry, the evil Galbatorix. The dragon effects are efficient but Jeremy Irons – who surely should’ve learned not to re-enter the dragon’s den after the shocking Dungeons & Dragons – and walking ham-joint John Malkovich as Galbatorix undermine everything.
