Seventh Son (2015)

The special effects in this thing are just freakin over the top awesome. I found myself regretting I didn’t see it in 3D. The secondary characters and cinematography are superb, but Jeff Bridges as the Spook nails it in his role. If you know how much I can’t stand Jeff Bridges, then you know that it takes a lot for me to say something like that...
