John Gregory, who is a seventh son of a seventh son and also the local spook, has protected his country from witches, boggarts, ghouls and all manner of things that go bump in the night. However John is not young anymore, and has been seeking an apprentice to carry on his trade. Most have failed to survive. The last hope is a young farmer’s son named Thomas Ward. Will he survive the training to become the spook that so many others couldn’t? Should he trust the girl with pointy shoes? How can Thomas stand a chance against Mother Malkin, the most dangerous witch in the county?
I liked this movie and thought it was pretty cool. I like the medieval costumes and the fact it was medieval times. There was great action in this movie, and even though she was a bad witch, there was a cool dragon! I like witches and magical things. My favorite characters were Tusk and Alice. Tusk is ugly and doesn’t talk, but he is the nicest and most loyal friend. I wish I knew him. I didn’t like the evil witches. They were very mean and treated all humans badly. Radu was interesting. He has axes on his hands and swings them everywhere without hurting himself. I didn’t like Strix and his snake tongue. Master Gregory was very cool. He was strong and fast. I didn’t like that he was drunk a lot, but if you have to fight witches and evil things I guess it helps. Tom was strong and brave, and he was a very good apprentice. He learned fast and became pretty amazing. I’m not sure I understand what is so special about the seventh son or the seventh son’s seventh son, but I did like the movie.
