Critics Consensus: Seventh Son squanders an excellent cast and some strange storyline ingredients, leaving audiences with one disappointingly dull fantasy adventure.

Weak YA adaptation is far more mature than the books.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Seventh Son is a very loose adaptation of The Last Apprentice series by Joseph Delaney, with an aged-up protagonist (presumably to up the heartthrob factor) and only a passing similarity to the books. There's a surprising single use of "f--k" (used in exasperation), and there's more immediate passionate kissing and romance than in comparable YA fantasy adaptations. In one scene it's even implied that a teen couple has had sex, based on their position on a bed and the way the girl's top is loose and off her shoulder. The violence is on par with other fantasy series, but it's still disturbing when people are burned to ash, swallowed (the evil witches turn into animal familiars, like dragons and leopards), or killed with swords and other medieval weapons.
