DRAGON MOVIES



Reign Of Fire

In present-day London, 12-year-old Quinn watches as his mother accidentally wakes a fire-breathing dragon from a centuries-long slumber. Twenty years later, dragons have scorched the Earth and nearly destroyed civilization.
More info here: Official Reign Of Fire website
Rated PG-13, it has violence and a lot of action!
My Rating (1-5, 5 being best):


Dungeons and Dragons - The Movie

When Profion, an evil wizard, schemes to dethrone the new empress of a mystical land, she recruits a band of adventurers (which includes a sorceress and a rogue) to find a magical artifact that will foil the wizard's plot. This artifact, the Rod of Dragon Control, gives the bearer the ability to control dragons...
Rated PG-13, it has some violence and it's not too bad for older kids and grownups.
More info here: Official D&D Movie website
My Rating (1-5, 5 being best): - The dragons looked pretty good, but the Gold and Reds looked TOO much alike. The golds should have look more Asian-type to match D&D's game.




It's decades on from when Bowen, in his last year of life, is given the last dragon egg in existence and he places it in a monastery for safe-keeping. Protected and cared for by the monks, the dragon is nurtured in secrecy - which is all to the good because a prophecy comes that a dragon's heart will cause the land to become ruled by evil. The new main character, apart from Drake the dragon, is Geoff (sounding more like Joff, played by Chris Masterson) who is a stablehand, but is training with a home-built fighting machine to become a knight. There's fat chance of that, however, as the addled king has appointed Lord Osric (Harry van Gorkum) as chancellor and the beastly chap is out to make it impossible for those of Geoff's class to become anything other than peasants.
Rated PG-13, it has some violence but isn't too scary. The young dragon is cute, kids might like him.
My Rating (1-5, 5 being best): - This movie had some cute parts (like Drake trying to breathe frost instead of fire) but the movie was dull until the last 15 minutes.



Dragonheart
Draco

DragonHeart is the latest and arguably the greatest dragon movie so far. It stars Sean Connery (Draco's voice), Dennis Quaid (Bowen), Pete Postlethwaite (Gilbert), Dina Meyer (Kara), and David Thewlis (King Einon). It is about a young king that is mortally wounded as a child. The dragon saves him only to have the king to grow up more evil than his father. The Knight Bown hunts down the dragon to kill him for "tainting" the king with his evil heart. Bowen and the Dragon make a pact when they come to a standstill in a fight neither can win. It is twisted version of the story "The Reluctant Dragon". Even non-dragon lovers can appreciate the dazzling special effects in this one!
Rated PG-13, it has some violence and really isn't for the younger kids, but is not too bad for older ones and grownups young at heart.

Dragonheart, a New Beginning
My Rating (1-5, 5 being best): - Draco was a GORGEOUSLY done dragon! Some of the best CG I have seen in a movie. The movie was fun, but the ending was sad.


DragonSlayer
DragonFire!
DragonSlayer is an exciting Wizard and Dragon story in the 16th century. Placed in the British countryside, a horrifying, fire-breathing dragon named Vermithrax terrorizes the area. The only hope is an aging sorcerer which is killed before he can help the people, so the responsibility falls on his young apprentice, Galen. The people think that Galen will only stand to make the monster even more deadly, and does not want him to interfer. Galen takes up the challenge, and you have to see the movie to see what happens!
Rated PG, it has some violence. But it is fit for older kids and adults who like fantasy based movies!

My Rating (1-5, 5 being best): - My favorite dragon movie of ALL time!! Done in 1981, this is an amazing movie. Done with "stop motion' photography, the dragon, Vermithrax is VERY well done. Gorgeous work. Has a nice plot. I would NOT mind seeing this movie re-done with today's technology!
