THE PLOT:

It is the times of dragons, a misguided Prince is fatally injured during his cruel Father ordered the protesters killed. A brave knight named Bowen went to a dragon to save the young man's life, the Dragon bestows the prince half his heart.

10 years later the misguided prince has become a cruel king and Bowen thinks it's because of the Dragon's heart and in a fit of revenge kills dragon after dragon until he arrives at the very dragon that gave the twisted King Einon half his heart.

They battle to a draw until Bowen realizes the horrible truth, that the heart didn't make Einon evil, his own twisted heart made him evil.

Now Bowen has joined forces with the last dragon as a con to keep the noble legend of the Dragonslayor alive as long as possible and de-thrown the twisted Einon once and for all.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

A great movie with a great cast. I enjoyed the story allot and I loved the Dragon effects, best dragon effects since Dragonslayor. The best part is for once the Dragon wasn't evil like in many of the newer dragon movies that use CGI. The climax was a bit sad, but that's the only negative part.
I GIVE IT...9 STARS

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd. I also prefer my Dragons to be good guys, not just mindless monsters. That is just lazy writing in my book. Also I liked the chemestry between Bowen and Draco. It was touching, sad and funny.
I ALSO GIVE IT...9 STARS
