"I had wondered what this film was - and I was impressed with it to a small degree. The production is that of a school play, with the strength of the film majorly on the good characters, especially Amber Benson's character.
I was rather removed from the idea of the villain and his cronies - Nobody on the opposing side seemed believable, until they tried to thrawt the heroes, usually right in front of them. The major character of the story, the mystical gryphon, doesn't feel really like it belongs in the film - it's not alive in the scene, it looks like it was animated and composed into the scene without a touch of realism.
Condering the production was produced for the SCIFI Channel, the film is low-budget. However, I didn't consider the film "bad", but "cheesy", and it does deserve some attention. My best advice - Be an Amber fan, that way you won't be offended, and throw twenty dollars down the drain.

"I enjoy fantasy movies, and dragons, or gryphons in this movie, are always of interest, epsecially when their presence in the story is central to the action. I guess I've got used to the high quality Hollywood or British FX seen in so many movies recently, that this one came as a real disappointment. From the end credits I believe an east european company were responsible, although I could be wrong. Whoever they are, or wherever they are based, I'm sorry to write that their efforts marred what was otherwise a well thought out story. I am particularly sorry because this movie cast Amber Benson, an actress whose work I always admire, in an action hero role, and she was particularly good at the cut and thrust of the sword and sorcery story. I was pleased that she had this opportunity to shine, just sorry that the FX marred the end result."
Stoney gryphon hardly takes flight

"In terms of concept and plot, this movie is basically Saturday morning kids fare, with a cartoonish portrayal of the gryphon, a villain who belongs in a drag burlesque review, and a simple story line that will intrigue the kiddies, but is altogether predictable. Admittedly the story improves a bit as it progresses. And there are a couple of pg-13 scenes (gore, heroes about to make love). Overall, this is light-weight entertainment, and when approached as such, is enjoyable."
