The company who made this film has a history of ripping off whatever they feel will be the next hot film at the time. Near as I can tell this piece of cinematic garbage was an attempt to rip of the hideous In The Name of the King. Grade z effects, bad acting and a pointless plot. stay away from this film

A combination of other fantasy movies
Madelyn Pryor | Mesa, AZ United States | 06/14/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)
Dragon by Asylum Studios is a combination of every fantasy movie out there, with the heaviest influences coming from Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and Eragon. There are the elves and dark elves, a hero with an unknown parent/destiny, dragons linked to their riders, and enough lines lifted directly from Star Wars and LOTR to make someone geeky enough to recognize the lines giggle (I count myself in that group since I did). Even though this is a direct mix of these movies, it somehow manages to become it's own appealing film.
Dragon is one of those movies that just grow on you, and before you know it you like it. In places the acting is wooden, and the lines are cheesy. The Dragon and special effects were obviously created at home on someone's computer. But this movie becomes a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. It comes a fun, compelling little fantasy movie that you want to finish watching.
This movie is supposed to be part of a trilogy (another Star Wars/LOTR lift) but I do hope they make the other two. I, for one, will add them to my collection.
If you're a serious fantasy fan and you think Tolkien is high literature and you can't stand the thought of someone spoofing LOTR this is NOT the movie for you. However, if you can stand a little camp and you're looking for a fun, enjoyable movie to fill 90 minutes of your life with brainless fantasy fun and smiles, this one is a GREAT bet.
Recommended to fans of direct to DVD fantasy.
Where Are the Other Two Movies? It is a Trilogy isn't it?

"Seriously I didn't think I would like this film since I got it in a dollar bin. But I did enjoy it its corny and short but I enjoyed it alot. I loved the Necromancer character she was awesome. It kinda reminded me of guildwars a little. The dragon was cool for what it was Its clear that it is a beginers try at computer graphics but hey I'm not complaining I can't even come up with a stick figure on my computer ;-) The movie is Truely enjoyable. the storyline isn't to bad if you can get passed the fact that everything seemed cramed a bit as if they didn't have the time to perfect it but still its worth watching. However my big disappointment lies in the fact that it doesn't seem to be complete. It was quickly summed up at the end quickly cutting loose ends here and there but the box said its a trilogy? My question to all you Fantasy fans out there is Where are the other two movies??? I mean you get me hooked and then you leave me dry?? whats up with that? Anyway I suggest if you truely love fantasy films and you don't mind the corny special effects to give it a go but be warned you may be disappointed because it doesn't continue."

"For this to be a bargain-bin movie, it is actually the best one I've seen yet. Directed by Leigh Scott and starring Eliza Swenson, Amelia Jackson-Gray, Jon-Paul Gates and Jeff Denton; this 2006 film is about Princess Vanir who must traverse the haunted forest of Sidhe in a desperate attempt to save her kingdom from an advancing army of dark elves. With the help of Cador and Artemir, they encounter a mysterious sorceress, an army of elves and a dragon hellbent in standing in their way. Considering this is part of a trilogy, I'm looking forward to the sequels in everyway. This movie might not be liked by most who saw it but, for those of us who accept it for what it is, it isn't that bad a flick. You can tell the movie was made on a modest budget but I've seen worse movies made for more."
