Customer Review

on 14 July 2010
An uncomplicated but well-executed plot; an ensemble cast; a convincing medieval society; and the memorable debut of the late Caitlin Clarke. All ticks in the plus column of any movie.

It would all fall down if the dragon itself was anything less than convincing. Fortunately, that is not an issue. Dragonslayer features the most exquisite monster ever to grace the silver screen; Vermithrax Pejorative, the Dragon of Dragons.

Vermithrax Pejorative is achieved without CGI, but is so realistic the question "how did they get the dragon to do that?" springs inevitably to mind. It never speaks, yet has considerably more character than Connery in Dragonheart. It is in my view Monster #1, beating King Kong into second place. The reviewer who denegrates the film's special effects astonishes and saddens me; I have no intention of parting with my copy. Or even lending it. Buy new, my friends.
