Customer Reviews

For a B movie, not to bad.
Stephen
It's a fantasy film too, but the plot is more grounded in the mundanity of medieval living than your typical dungeonpunk sword-and-sorcery flick.
Michael J. Tresca
Good acting, decent plot, breathtaking Irish scenery, authentic costumes and props.

Well executed fantasy movie. Not overwrought, likeable characters, and believable romance. Could use just a smidgeon more dragon to justify the front cover art. Worth watching. Boom microphone does an excellent job of not appearing in this film. Acting is quite decent compared to other films of this type.
With as many poorly done, cheesy movies as there are in this genre, the above should be taken as high praise. If you like slayers and you like dragons, you'll be pleased with this movie.

The movie is a little cheesy but it has a good story line. I like it that my 13 year old daughter can watch it without the fear of seeing them kiss or do more. Finally I found a good movie for the whole family.

There seems to be two widely different opinions of this film. On the one hand, it's a dour attempt at telling a story that's less about slaying dragons and more about a "paladins" (in the D&D sense, not one of the twelve peers of Charlemagne's Court) in Ireland with passable CGI effects. On the other hand it's a surprisingly nuanced fantasy tale that stands out in a cesspool of barely scripted monster-of-the-week drek. The answer is somewhere in between those two extremes.

"Dawn of the Dragonslayer" is the story of paladin-to-be Will (Richard McWilliams), a shepherd's son out for revenge against the dragon that killed his father and destroyed his livelihood. He approaches Baron Sterling (Ian Cullen) to learn the ways of a knight and make his way in the world. After suffering repeated rejection and abuse by Sterling and his servants, Will eventually becomes part of his retinue. He can't help but notice Sterling's attractive daughter Kate (Nicola Posener), a relationship complicated by the arrival of nobleman Rogan (Philip Brodie) who requests her hand in marriage. Then the dragon shows up again and everyone is out for the gold a dragon's egg will bring the barony.

At heart this is a romance film, which will disappoint monster buffs looking for a lot of dragon action. It's a fantasy film too, but the plot is more grounded in the mundanity of medieval living than your typical dungeonpunk sword-and-sorcery flick. This amounts to the relatively small cast talking to each other a lot -- it seems there's only ten people in total in all of Ireland.

Taken as a fantasy romance, "Dawn of the Dragonslayer" is surprisingly good.

People are too used to films with multimillion dollar budgets with top stars demanding millions just to star in them. Those are the people that do not grasp the Indie Film concept. They are generally labors of love created on a shoestring or zero budget, created to tell a story that the creators envisioned and want to share with others.

Dawn of the Dragonslayer is one of these films. Sure the effects were not made by a studio with limitless resources. The fact that a group of individuals could get together and put this film together on their own is quite exciting. Not only did they complete a feature film, but it is on par with some of the other fantasy films released by some major studios, on a budget less than 5% and a crew of insignificant scale to those same studios. I tip my hat to them.

The story is an age old one that never gets old for me. The script was well done, even if some of the lines were executed a little woodenly by the actors. But keep in mind that these are fresh actors that we may well be seeing on the screen for the first time... bringing another level of excitement to viewing this film. Sean Connery and Harrison Ford had to start somewhere, and I guarantee they started out looking just as shaky.

So if you like the concept of Indie Films, this one is a fun way to get lost for an hour and a half.

For a B movie, not to bad. There a a few parts where the camera shakes a little in the start of the movie but all and all not a bad movie, I have seen worse. The story line is good with a little romance thrown in. I would have like to seen more of the dragon but that is me. Acting is not bad. But for the price, it is not a bad watch. I will likely watch it again.

Curse of the Dragonslayer was a pretty decent movie. Far bigger budgets have been spent on pieces of rubbish. The plot, mostly generic, did hold enough interest to watch the film from start to finish. Heck, even the special effects and character prosthetics looked fairly good.

If you're looking for something a little different, but having the feeling of familiarity, this might well be a good choice.

It's a great fantasy film - with a beautiful backdrop of where they filmed. The acting is good and the effects play nicely in this film. It's not Lord of the Rings, but will scratch that fantasy itch nicely. If you are a fantasy fan, like me, you'll enjoy this film - it was made for us!
