Editorial Reviews

Branded as a 'nerd' and harassed by the school bully, 12-year-old Arthur is rescued by a magical troll who knows that the boy unwittingly holds the secret to defeat an evil dragon. Arthur's loving mom, struggling to keep her devious ex-husband from gaining custody of Arthur, dismisses her son's 'fantasies' until she realizes the all-too-real immediate danger and joins forces with Arthur, the troll, and a dashing but washed up video-game master. Together, they hope to conquer the dragon and the wicked vice-principal who threaten civilization.

Format:DVD
Sorry to disagree with the other posts, but for adult viewers without young children, this direct-to-DVD release doesn't have a lot to offer. It doesn't even live up to its cover art - who is that red-headed kid on the cover? (he's not in the movie) and one could only wish the dragon of the movie was as cool and beefy as that one looks. The dragon from the Jane and Dragon TV series is more impressive than what you get here. One of the other reviewers compared this to a big-budget theatrical release, but I found it more like a made-for-TV movie at best with a lame storyline, second-rate acting, and poor special effects. The story is about a trio of high-school (although they seem much more junior highish to me) nerds led by a kid named Arthur who are rescued from the local bullies by a magical troll who knows Arthur somehow holds the secret to defeat an evil dragon. There's a story thread about how a card game the kids enjoy is really a history of magic, which in this universe is potion-based. The "big stars" here are Lea Thompson and Wendie Malick. In her 20s, Thompson was a bonafide star, headlining real big-budget efforts like the Back to the Future trilogy, All the Right Moves, Red Dawn, and many others. In the 1990's, her Caroline in the City series enjoyed a popular five-year run. But now in her 50's, Thompson's playing a clueless and tired mom reduced to spewing a bunch of angry one-liners. Malick's performance here recalls her cardboard delivery as Nina Van Horn in the old Just Shoot Me series and she's just as annoying here. She plays a meglomanical vice principal (we never see the actual principal) who somehow has authority over custody issues and criminal matters. Read more ›

Adventures of a Teenage Dragon slayer is the perfect movie for families on Friday nights. It's funny, even to adults. It's clever all the way through, and will make you glad you watched it. Definitely get this movie!

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific film for the entire family! February 21, 2011
By Dee J.
Format:DVD
We've gotten to watch this on an advance screening and it certainly has the look of a big budget motion picture with great acting from the entire cast. Our whole family enjoyed the film (granted, they save the dragon for the last fourth of the film) and I can heartily recommend it to everyone of all ages!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great family movie May 10, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a strange movie that my 8 and 10 year old grandsons loved, but I think adults would like it too. It's funny and the kids are sassy or obnoxious. The child actor who plays the "star's" best friend is really a good actor - I'm not sure of his name (dark hair, glasses) - and added to the movie. The "violence" is comedy-based and not disturbing for kids.
