2.0 out of 5 stars If you like French arty movies you may like this, but too bizarre for us, 10 Mar. 2012

This review is from: Dragon Hunters [DVD] (DVD)
I'd never heard of this DVD but at under £4 and with the positive reviews I thought I'd give it a go for our family movie night. What a mistake. The movie theme is great and the packaging makes the comparison with Dreamworks "How to Train Your Dragon" which we all loved, but that's where the comparison ends.

As a French/Chinese production it lacks the mainstream humour for different age groups that you get in the American cartoons. Instead you get a combination of French "art" (which I generally find too pretentious) and some bizarre characters/situations (eg. flying red eyed rabbits at the end).

A single star is too low as there is some humour (eg. a "dog" that starts fires in an interesting way), but only if you can bear to watch beyond the first 10 minutes which are a combination of dark (an entire village gets wiped out by a dragon though you don't see anything gruesome) and truly bizarre (the creators must have been on drugs). After that it settles down and becomes something you can watch, but I don't think you'll ever watch again.

Overall, it'd be great to have alternatives to the American studios, but this isn't even close and I'd wait until it falls well below £2.
