One of my childhood favourites!,
This review is from: Dragonheart [DVD] (DVD)
I was only 1 years old when this came out ( now 15 years old ) and since I was about 8 this has been one of my favourites. Every holiday I would take the DVD of it with me and watch it at least 3 times xD I just watched it again on SKY today and it inspired me to write a review on it. Admittedly I don't find it as enjoyable as I did back when I was 9-10, but I still enjoy it immensely. The voice acting of Draco the dragon is charismatic, wise, and excellent, while the other actors also play their parts well. This film is great for all ages and carries the moral that if everyone comes together they can vanquish a great evil. Also, I don't know what the CGI was like back in 1996, but I think this is pretty darn good considering! The dragon is believable at times and the fire at least looks like it's coming from the dragon and not some flamethrower. The interactions between Bowen and Draco make it seem like he isn't talking to a green dot on a pole xD The soundtrack is also amazing as are the sounds of the dragon roaring etc.
The ending chokes me up, even now =( Highly recommended if you haven't seen it and enjoy fantasy films.
