Dragon Fun To Watch In This Mostly-Enjoyable Fantasy

"This was kind of a Class-B fantasy-adventure story but with Grade A special effects (with the dragon) and sound. Those visual and audio treats make it worth watching. This was early "demo"-type DVD disc, exhibiting some excellent surround sound when very few other DVDs were as audibly as good.
The story begins a bit slowly but once the dragon appears it's a fun and fascinating movie to watch. A decade ago when this came out, I marveled, "It's amazing how they can make strange creatures so lifelike." Of course, FX has only gotten better and better.
For me, the dragon was the only endearing character in the movie. Dennis Quaid plays the good guy, but he's mostly annoying in here. I think it was his fake raspy voice that was irritating. In all, a fun movie.
At any rate, the movie is pure medieval fantasy and theology but entertaining enough for kids and adults. There is no bad language in here."

"The young, sickly King Einon was wounded in a battle. In order for him to survive, he is healed by Draco, a dragon. Some years later, Bowen, a dragon slayer, encounters Draco. The two team up to form a traveling duo that perform an act, but the act is only known by themselves. Bowen supposedly "slays" Draco and then collects a reward from the town or village that he protects by killing the dragon who had been "terrorizing" them. From there, Bowen and Draco must save the entire kingdom from the rule of the now evil King Einon, who is part of Draco and Draco a part of him. Dragonheart is an incredibly uplifting movie. An amazing movie, an amazing cast and an amazing result. Get the movie, and get the soundtrack. You'll love them both.

"Dragonheart is a fun movie. Its no great work of art, but I liked it when it first came out, and it was fun to see it again."
