Customer Reviews

The lack of budget shows.

I'm certainly not a chauvinist by any means; I just wish movies would try and spare us this politically correct nonsense.

Granted, this film isn't the greatest movie about dragons to be rolled out, but based on the meager budget I think that it's pretty good. It's actually one of the better sci-fi/fantasy flicks that you can catch on SciFi channel these days. The story is nothing new, what with two warring kings at each others throats until a common enemy approaches, that being the dragons. Rhys-Davies does a good job with the material he is given here, and much like others have stated, he and Max Caulfield deserve better roles in better films.

There seems to be a lot of negativity about this movie. As a whole, however, it does a pretty good job with what it has to work with. The dragons look very good and the action sequences are nice as well. My favorite scene is when one of the dragons is harpooned by the ballista and falls to the earth, sliding towards our heroes only to stop a few feet in front of them. The graphics in that particular scene are very realistic when compared to other TV movies.

In short, if you like the flicks cranked out by SciFi channel, and allow some leeway for the budget, "Dragon Storm" isn't too shabby. I don't know if I'd buy it, but it's at least worth burning up a Saturday afternoon when it's raining outside.

For a low-budget, made for TV movie, DRAGON STORM has some pretty cool dragons. They swirl and blow flames from their mouths and they shoot off some nasty hulls or something. Set in the late 12th century in Carpathia, the "story" follows these dragons who come from outer space, and two feuding kingdoms. John Rhys Davies tries to camp it up but he limits himself; a broader expansive performance ala Vincent Price would have aided the film greatly. Maxwell Caulfield (will we ever forgive him for Grease 2) plays the heroic hunter who battles the dragons. The movie is Saturday afternoon Milk Duds, and is not a bad way to pass the time. One irritating point of movies lately though is their necessity to give us female warriors who inevitably are better than many of the men. Here we have an engineering young woman who actually builds a batista and can shoot dragons accurately with each shot; and we have the tomboyish yet sexy princess who can outshoot the hero. We all know that the chances of that happening in the 12th century is pretty preposterous. I'm certainly not a chauvinist by any means; I just wish movies would try and spare us this politically correct nonsense. Sorry ladies, don't hate me!!!!

Soon after a feature film 'Reign of Fire' failed to grab our attention, this made-for-TV film comes starring John Rhys-Davies and Maxwell Caulfield. The only thing I can promise is that you can see them in this film. And some big, bad dragons, this time back in 900 years ago.

Besides that, there are few things I can recommend about this film. The story itself is not bad; well, at least, the dragons here do not come out of the constraction site in London. Instead, they come from the outer space! Call it scientific accuracy, or just a plot contrivance. Pick your choice.

Anyway, the story that follows is not really bad. The castle ruled by the evil king played by Rhys-Davies is attacked by the dragons, and burned to the ground. Powerless, he goes to the castle against which he was fighting a war for a long time. King Rhys-Davies succeeds in reaching there, and the two kings team up, to kill the man-eating dragons.

And Maxwell Caulfied is Silas, a wandering hunter who happens to help out the evil king, and Silas is forced to join in the dragon-hunting force. The rest of the film is about the fights between the flying dragons and the humans (including the Princess) and the plotting king's scheme about overturning the enemy country.

Well, that's about it. The CGIs of the dragons are just OK, but no matter how it does, the film shows it's a low-budget one. The actions are not good, because when there is no tension, it desperately tries to show it by the busy cutting and the actors' loud yelling, all of which simply fall flat, leaving nothing behind.

According to imdb, the name of John Rhys-Davies will appear in at least eight films (including TV). You know, he was Gimli in 'Lord of the Rings' and ... why should he be so busy as this?

This movie is just a bit of fun! The acting, directing and production values are very good. Maxwell Caulfield makes an excellent reluctant hero and John Rhys Davies injects humor into his villanous role. The medieval setting is more convincing and less glamorous than in many movies I've seen. The script is pretty good, as dragon eggs land like comets on the earth, but we aren't sure at first (and neither are the characters) what they are. Even though the movie is not a bloodfest, it is too scary for children. The dragons do kill people, there is a fair amount of suspense, and the dragons are frightening.

THE PLOT: Set in a Middle Ages environment/time, two neighboring kingdoms find themselves besieged by Dragons that landed in meteors. Over the next 90 minutes, the Dragons burn, eat, and kill their way across the countryside. At the same time, political intrigue spins all around the main characters. Alliances are made and broken easily, with in a story with more secret (and not so secret) alliances than the latest Survivor episode.

The SPECIAL EFFECTS: Weren't bad at all compared to most `B' movies out there. Yes, it isn't quite as polished as the latest Hollywood blockbuster, but they're still good. The Dragons all look different and fly realistically, and there's enough fire in this film to make any pyromaniac happy.

OVERALL: Not a bad film at all. Also, there's no nudity or swearing, so you don't have to stress if you want to watch it with your kids. One female lead goes topless for a minute, but her hair completely covers everything.

On the whole a great, entertaining film.
