* ClicheStorm: This film is a great example of the downsides of using the TheHero'sJourney template so strictly.

** Ed Speelers in the title role. You can tell that he wants to act so badly, but his delivery combined with an atrocious script makes for {{Narm}} heaven.
** Creator/JeremyIrons plays Brom in a genuinely convincing way despite the scriptwriters’ best efforts to the contrary (and there are also indications that he seems to have taken Ed Speelers under his wing). Tragically, all he really accomplishes is making everyone else look even worse in comparison.

* SoOkayItsAverage: Those who haven't read the books can at least see this movie as a fun but flawed fantasy adventure movie, with great effects and dragons.
* TearJerker: The scene where Saphira lets [[spoiler: a dying]] Brom fly with her so that he can truly be a DragonRider one last time is, despite the film's mixed reception, genuinely moving.

!!YMMV Tropes in for the Eragon Video Game''Eragon'' movie:



* BadassDecay: Brom sucks in this. He gets beaten up and dragged off [[spoiler: by a wolf]].
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: When Brom is [[spoiler: owned by a wolf]].
* BizarroEpisode: Hadarac Desert. You never go back and there is no explanation for destroying the Urgal camps. On the other hand, you do meet [[EnsembleDarkhorse Murtagh]] there.
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Fighting giant Urgals, riding Saphira, and [[spoiler: using the final weapon]].
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: [[spoiler: Brom Vs. Wolf. The wolf wins.]]
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The theme while riding Saphira.
* GameBreaker: Bone Break.
* {{Narm}}: Quite a bit.
* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] with the DS version. [[AvertedTrope Averted]] with all the other platforms. The aversion isn't saying much due to the Literature/InheritanceCycle being SnarkBait.
* ThatOneBoss: The first Kull and the second Razaac.
* ThatOneSidequest: The Second Dragon tower.

* {{Narm}}: King Galbatorix's wooden delivery of the line [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_TxlvvmDsOs "I suffer without my stone. DO NOT. PROLONG. MY SUFFERING."]]

King Galbatorix's wooden delivery of the line [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_TxlvvmDsOs "I suffer without my stone. DO NOT. PROLONG. MY SUFFERING."]]"]]
** Saphira's dialogue mostly consists of over-explaining things that were usually already explained or don't need to be, often disrupting the pacing of the scenes. Creator/RachelWeisz' [[DullSurprise emotionless delivery]] doesn't help matters.
