    The Seeker: The Dark is Rising -- Cherishing -- First of all, lets find out about this film: Its title= Seeker, seeker means by example when a device in a missile that locates a target by sensing some characteristic of the target, as heat emission. Dark= well everyone knows what that means, rising= means to get up from a lying, sitting, or kneeling posture; assume an upright position.

Dark= well everyone knows what that means, rising= means to get up from a lying, sitting, or kneeling posture; assume an upright position. Now, if you combine those definitions, then see what happens. Seeker, dark, rising. Think about it, the seeker is obviously the child that seeks something. Maybe dark, or darkness, which is rising. At the eve of 11 years old, Will finds himself the last of the immortal's and uses the destiny of his kind to destroy the darkness that rises ahead which plans to banish Will from the human race. Now that is what I call a story. If you think like how I think before I saw it when you guessed it is worth a 6 then you are wrong, the story deserves so but there is never a dull moment, no kidding. A dark and fascinating film with visual effects beyond human use and reach, you would have to pay millions of dollars for those effects. It has loads of entertainment, it doesn't just have what the story gives you now. It passes by with way more plot's and stories happening. So please, if you think there isn't anything good playing right now because I also think the same, when this releases, go see it. It is worth it. Overall very good. But literally it has a lot of flaws, like the acting, dialogue, key concept, action. But I just say 10 when it deserves a 6 because I know there will not be many high rated reviews for the upcoming future, so just to balance the film's position. Expand

    In our theater, the audience began clapping as the ending credits rolled. I feel for those who have read the book, yet the pace, creativity, suspense targeted at tweens is more than adequate. Many creative shots packed great meaning into just a few seconds, telling the backstory as quickly as possible.

I feel for those who have read the book, yet the pace, creativity, suspense targeted at tweens is more than adequate. Many creative shots packed great meaning into just a few seconds, telling the backstory as quickly as possible. What's wrong with a movie that clearly defines the light and dark in today's world and it's effects on ordinary living? No movie captures the written word, hence they are adapted. This movie deserves to be examined not to see how closely it follows the book, but by the quality of story-telling. I believe this story is worth watching, and it won't leave you bored no matter what others might say. Expand

    The Seeker: The Dark is Rising is amazing, I was astonished at how the visual effects were attempted. The story is wonderful, acting isn't the best. But the movie overall is good.

    I found myself fully engaged, it is a full throttle adventure of thrills and non-stop action. An excellent film, like no other, nothing like our cheesy Harry Potter blockbuster, or boring Stardust. This is the year's best. And don't start disagreeing with me because if you think Pan's Labryinth is better because it is. But that movie came out in 2006, not 2007.

I loved it, I will be definitely seeing it again. Expand

    I think that this was a good movie.I honestly don't care what anyone else thinks because I actually paid attention to the story. This movie is about a kid who dosen't really fit in with his family and he feels further set apart because he has the fact that he contains magical powers froced on him.

    At its best, The Seeker is a pretty vivid fantasy book come-to-life; it does a decent, passable job of adding to the canon of kid-lit flicks.

    The books' magic was rooted in its ties to Arthurian legend and British folklore, grandiose elements which Cunningham and Hodge have stripped.
