Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The highly anticipated feature Dragon Age: Dawn of the Seeker (2012) is based on the popular role-playing video game, which has already been adapted to novels, web comics, and action figures. Tough-as-press-on-nails Cassandra wields a deadly sword as a member of the Seekers, an elite group of knights charged with defending the religious organization the Chantry and its leader, the Divine. She's forced into a reluctant alliance with the mage Galyan, when they discover a conspiracy to overthrow the Divine, hatched by a coven of evil sorcerers lead by Frenic (who looks suspiciously like Darth Maul). An utterly predictable series of betrayals, confrontations, sword fights, and nick-of-time rescues concludes with Cassandra being acclaimed as the savior of the realm--and the hint of a possible sequel. Dawn of the Seeker demonstrates the very different requirements of a successful game and a feature film. A player distracted by swinging a sword or firing blasts of magic in a duel to the death probably won't be bothered by limited animation or clunky dialogue. But a viewer watching a film is stuck with the ineffective facial expressions, awkward movements, and clichéd speeches ("Hate can only breed more hate"). The filmmakers concentrate on the motion-capture sword fights and stunts, which are better animated than the dialogue segments. But the look of the characters shifts disconcertingly between two and three dimensions mid-scene. Director Fumihiko Sori relies too heavily on elaborate camera moves and rapid cutting to prop up the threadbare story. The extras include a standard making-of documentary and a rather self-congratulatory tour through BioWare, the Canadian studio that created the original game. (Rated TV MA F FV: graphic violence, violence against women, grotesque imagery, potentially offensive religious imagery) --Charles Solomon

Product Description

In a land where battles are fought with swords and magic, a young heroine rises to glory as Templars, mages, and dragons clash. Cassandra, a brash and beautiful warrior, must stop a conspiracy that threatens the realm's most powerful religious order. Accused of treasonous crimes and hunted by friend and foe, Cassandra must clear her name and overcome her rage in order to save the day and take her place in legend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised. June 21, 2012
By Miche
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
First off, I would like to state that yes, I am a woman, and a fan of the game series. That led me to purchase this title from amazon. I had no real idea about what the film would be like, apart that it was set in the world of Dragon Age.

The aninmation style was very different that what I was expecting. Every image had an almost ethereal glow. It made everything almost too pretty, but after a bit, I got used to it.

The story itself could have been taken from Dragon Age Origins, and I liked that. It should fit in that well.

The bad guy was pretty 2 dimensional, though, I wish we'd had at least a minute or two of backstory on how he became so hideous looking, apart from the whole "I are a blood mage! RAR! I kill you all!" thing.

Would I recommend this to people who have not played the games? Yes. The story is easily accessible, and enjoyable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better for fans than not. May 31, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This movie is definitely meant for the fans more than those who have no idea what Dragon Age is.

As a fan of the games I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised. When I first saw it advertised here, I had a bit or morbid curiosity. For the most part Anime has been on a severe decline in quality of story telling and visuals lately, so I was none to pleased to see a Japanese studio handling it. CGI animation has never really been Japan's strong point. Even some of the better CG movies I have seen from them look pretty poor when compared to an American made one. (Appleseed vs Anything by Pixar.) Only exception I can think of I have seen is Final Fantasy Advent Children. I was also concerned about how well a country who's RPG's tend to be of a totally different flavor than western ones, would handle it.

I can say happily that they exceeded my expectations.

The animation and designs are good. Maybe not great. (would have rather seen it done like the game models used for cutscenes.) but they avoid looking totally stiff and lifeless.

The battle sequences. Yeah they fit the dragon age setting. Pretty much everything seen in the movie can be done in the game, or is shown in a game cut scene.

So for any fans of Dragon Age I can highly recommend.

On another note. Buy the Blueray, even if you do not have a player for it. It comes with the movie on DVD as well and as of May 31st 2012 is almost $10.00 cheaper than the DVD version.

For people who do not know much about the games or the setting, it does not rate as high. (3 stars there) It's still an entertaining watch, but you would probably get the feeling one gets when they start reading a book series halfway through. You may like what you see but you are totally lost on who is who.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Well-Done Tie In May 29, 2012
By Andrew
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
At first I had some reservations about taking the Dragon Age franchise into the anime setting, but after having watched the movie and all of the special features I have to say that this is a good buy. It blends with the Dragon Age storyline seamlessly, and provides some good background to a fairly critical character that you see in Dragon Age 2. As a fan of the franchise, I found the story to be very well done and it provided a deeper understanding of parts of the Dragon Age world that we have not been able to experience yet. I find it hard to justify this purchase to someone who is not a fan/has not played/heard of the franchise at all, since the movie relies heavily on the viewer knowing at least a little bit about the realm before having seen this, but it is a very good action film at the very least. It also included a code inside for a free digital issue of the first issue of the Dragon Age comic that Darkhorse did, and that seems like that will end up being a good series to read too. Overall, very well done movie which adds to the Dragon Age franchise and does not take away from it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining May 11, 2012
By Jaelus
Format:Blu-ray
I saw the premiere of the English version of this at PAX East on April 7th 2012. I found it to be pretty entertaining. The story takes place between Dragon Age and Dragon Age II and the plot was good (no spoilers). I know some people didn't care for it, but I thought the voice acting and animation were just fine as well. Towards the end of the movie things get a little far fetched, but it's all in good fun, and hey, this is Dragon Age so some crazy heroics are expected. All in all the movie works because it doesn't take itself too seriously. It's funny at times, dramatic at others, and moves along at a good pace. Well worth the preorder price for sure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable! April 12, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
As long as you aren't expecting spectacular graphics, the very best in English voice acting (didn't get a chance to see this in Japanese), nor a half-decent storyline. I got a chance to see this at the Sakura-con anime convention recently. I'll admit, this isn't very best. But then, I wasn't expecting the very best.

What this movie did offer was the following:
- Lots of action
- An okay storyline
- Good voice acting
- And a few amusing scenes

I expected mindless action with amusement here and there and to be honest, it delivered and I was very entertained.

4.0 out of 5 stars on the subtitles June 3, 2012
By Lydia
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Disc 1 of this set contains the English language version of the film with optional subtitles for the hearing impaired and all of the special features. Disc 2 contains the Japanese language version of the film with optional translation subtitles.

The opening of the film has a brief history of the major religion, the Chantry. For anyone interested in the Japanese version do not panic when you put it in and this opening is in English. The rest of the movie is in Japanese after the narration is over. I don't know why they did it this way. I found it completely unnecessary and lazy. This movie was shown in Japanese theaters, so I find it hard to believe they had an English opening there.
