Product Description

Adventure feature in which a young man must prepare himself to do battle with the dragon that killed his father. Will Shepherd (Richard McWilliams) lives a simple and rustic life in the mountains until the unfortunate death of his father. Forced to seek a living in the lowlands thereafter, Will ends up in the employment of Sterling (Ian Cullen), a local land owner and knight. Sterling thinks little of Will and sends him to work on the farm, but the old man's daughter, Kate (Nicola Posener), befriends the boy from the mountains. The pair set about unravelling a past mystery which has bound their families together and getting Will ready for the rite of passage in which he must take on and destroy the dragon.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dawn of The Dragon Slayer 19 April 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is very typical example of British film making, and probably the reason why we are so behind the US. The film making itself is very good. Beautiful shots of rugged countryside, castles in the mists etcetera. Excellent characterization and very well acted by all. However where it falls down is in the script. The dialogue is excellent but the writer (and the Producers/director by association) has disobeyed the primary law of script writing. 'Show don't tell' We are told far too much and see little of anything this reduces the action to a minimum (hence low appearance of said beasty) and slows the entire thing down making it turgid and stodgy. Of course this is just an opinion and it may be argued otherwise. Granted, it may suffer from low budget syndrome i.e. we shoot it all in a toilet, or in this case a moor of sorts so we can keep costs to a minimum but that doesn't seem to be the truth of it. It could be poor editing, it could even be the director demanding too much of the wrong clip to be left in the final cut. Whatever, the problem remains. Hmm, why couldn't it have been a female Dragon Slayer - or would that be too novel? A good purchase for those who possess some free time and have a forgiving nature.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dragon slaying is a serious affair. 13 May 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Dragon slaying movies often contain a touch of humour, but not 'Dawn of The Dragon Slayer' which remains serious throughout. It has some beautiful locations and the graphics are well done. Not very gory, so suitable for older children. Not bad.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best dragon films around. 30 Jan 2012
Format:DVD
A fire-breathing dragon is quite possibly one of the coolest creatures to have stared in film, but despite the beast's awesomeness there are only a handful of Dragon movies that are any good. Thankfully DAWN OF THE DRAGON SLAYER comes to the rescue and really delivers the goods!

The films tells the story of Will, a guy setting out to avenge a fire-breathing, flying dragon after killing his father. There's a love story in here too and plenty of human drama to really flesh the film out and give it a lot more substance. This allows the film's plot to be much more heavier and a lot more interesting.

DAWN OF THE DRAGON SLAYER features a rather new and unknown cast and crew, but don't be fooled into thinking that's a bad thing. Far from it! The performances in this film are all top-notch and brilliantly acted. Perhaps the star of the film is Ian Cullen (from Z CARS, F and DOCTOR WHO), but I thought that Richard McWilliams did a fantastic job as the lead alongside Nicola Posener despite it being his first film role. I can see him going far and making a big name for himself if this is anything to go by!

The special effects in a film can often make or break a film of this nature, and is the line in which awesomeness and utter crap come together. However, the CGI in DAWN OF THE DRAGONSLAYER is excellent! The dragon's design is brilliantly terrifying and all in all it looks very convincing indeed - definetly a good thing!

Overall, this film is easily one of the best Dragon films out there. If you're a fan of such films as THE LORD OF THE RINGS, REIGN OF FIRE or the TV show MERLIN, or just think Dragon's are pretty damn cool, then you will absolutly love this film. I did!

Highly recommended!
