One of the most delightful train wrecks I've ever watched

"'DragonQuest' is an absolute gem to people who, like me, love camp cinema. At no point in this film did I stop laughing, and I think I actually brushed against death when the song at the end credits started due to lack of sufficient oxygen. If you're looking for a "good" fantasy fiction film, you need to run for the hills. However, if you're looking for a painfully derivative, terribly written and unbelievably over-acted movie, this needs to be in your permanent collection. Marc Singer's "Popeye Meets Yoda" rendition of his character is worth the price of the film on its own, er, merits.
You'll never be drawn into the wretched story, but the meta-experience is a complete blast!"

"HORRIBLE CGI AND AWFUL SCRIPT AND ACTING COMBINE TO MAKE THIS A REAL HOWLER. MARC SINGER USES A WICKED SNARL AND SPOUTS RIDICULOUS PLATITUDES AND HAS ONE OF THE WORST DEATH SCENES EVER. VILLAIN BRIAN THOMPSON HIDES WISELY BEHIND A HOODED ROBE AND LOOKS EMBARRASSED. THE DRAGON EFFECTS AND THE BATTLE SCENES ARE ATROCIOUS. AVOID."
