A Harry Potter-ish fantasy/adventure in which a dorky American teenager living in England learns that he's the subject of an ancient prophecy (Seventh son of a seventh son!) and therefore is the only one who can save the world in an epic battle of Light Vs. Darkness.
Technically well made, with some nice special effects, but overall I found this one kinda dry. I've seen better, but I've seen far worse. A decent enough time waster. It's based on a series of fantasy novels I haven't read, but it looks like the other reviewers here who HAVE read the novels pretty much hate this movie, so make of that what you will.

I can't give this movie few enough stars, though I've already vented on other review sites.
This is an insulting and abhorrent adaptation of the book.
I wouldn't recommend it on any level.
Seriously, a terrible waste of time - go read the book instead. The book is beautiful and wonderful. This movie is trash.

For anyone who has read the "The Dark Is Rising" series by Susan Cooper, the movie is an ok adaptation. For those who haven't read the books, it's a an interesting good vs. evil movie about a group of "old ones" who protect the earth from the "Dark" throughout time. And in the present, the last "old one" has reached adolescence and come into his powers - just in time for the battle against "The Dark." Good for middle schoolers, some special effects and children in danger might be too scary for younger elementary kids.

"This movie was an absolute piece of rubbish!! Not only did the "plot" - although it is an insult to the term "plot" to describe this pathetic film as actually having one - not make sense (the contusion at the end was so completely ridiculous as to make audiences wonder about the mental health of all those involved with production), but it started with a truly incredible story (Susan Cooper's "The Dark Is Rising (The Dark Is Rising Sequence)") that was original, complex yet understandable, beautiful, creative, and utterly amazing on every level and then dumbed it down into what was for the most part a predictable, pathetic, and completely asinine "story.""
