It isn't easy to make a good fantasy film as borne out by Seventh
Son, which has suffered a particularly arduous journey to the silver
screen. Originally slated for release in February 2013, its visual
effects house went bankrupt and its studio, Legendary Pictures, parted
ways with distributor Warner Bros. The film that's finally stumbling
into cinemas almost two full years later (courtesy of Universal
Pictures) should be an unmitigated disaster. Surprisingly, it's not.
The film isn't exactly great, but it's a largely entertaining romp
that's more inspired by than strictly faithful to Joseph Delaney's
series of bestselling books.
Tom Ward (Ben Barnes) is the seventh son of a seventh son: a rare
genetic lineage that sets him on the path to becoming a Spook a.k.a., a
slayer of the myriad evil creatures that haunt the land. He becomes the
apprentice of grizzled, alcohol-addled John Gregory (Jeff Bridges),
shortly after Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore), an evil witch, escapes
her earthly prison to claim the world as her own. With only a week to
go before the blood moon rises, Tom trains with Gregory but finds
himself distracted by the charms of Alice (Alicia Vikander) a
mysterious young lady with a few secrets of her own.
While hardly groundbreaking in any way, the story unfolds with
unexpected punch. Tom's story one in which he comes of age and comes
into his own is accompanied by plenty of action sequences, courtesy
of bone-crunching battles between men and other men (and women) who
turn into soaring, swooping, fire-breathing dragons. Tom tumbles over a
cliff to avoid a pursuing monster, Gregory battles a gigantic bear, and
wraiths of smoke and despair trail after the Spook and his apprentice
as they make their way through a dark, brooding forest.
It helps, too, that the film is leavened by a welcome bite of humour.
Seventh Son doesn't take itself as deadly seriously as some of its
brethren in the fantasy genre do. That's why Gregory plunges into a bar
brawl armed with nothing more than his flagon of beer, and Tom is
allowed to make quite a few cutting remarks about his purported mentor
that are heartily returned with interest.
Ardent fans of Delaney's books should be warned: Seventh Son riffs on
elements of the novels rather than staying strictly true to them. For
one thing, Tom is considerably older in the film. Most noticeably,
Malkin is a very different character than she is on the page. She's
given more depth and complexity here, her vile behaviour explained, if
not strictly justified by, her past entanglements with Gregory. It's
actually quite nice to see a fantasy world that doesn't simply
perpetuate the trope of the wicked witch, but instead dreams up
characters that fall along a broad spectrum of morality.
Barnes is well-cast as Tom, holding his own as both a hero and
quasi-romantic lead. He shares a sweet, though not particularly
electric, chemistry with Vikander who is, thankfully, called upon to do
more than simper and flirt. But there are considerably more thrills to
be had with Bridges, who manages to fold charm, menace and darkness
into Gregory; and Moore, who's clearly having plenty of fun cutting her
way through scenes as a whirlwind of madness and malevolence.
By all accounts, Seventh Son should really have been an outright flop.
It may still play as such to any fantasy aficionados who are demanding
greatness on the level of The Lord Of The Rings. But, for pretty much
everyone else, Seventh Son is an entertaining, undemanding film with
some good ideas and a lot of fun moments. It's not a particularly great
example of its genre but, given its troubled production history, that
it's not completely execrable is probably nothing short of a miracle.
