    Product Description

    Long ago, when majestic fire-breathers soared through the skies, there lived a knight who would come face-to-face and heart-to-heart with the most remarkable creature that ever existed. Dennis Quaid stars with the voice of Academy Award winner Sean Connery in director Rob Cohen's heroic adventure that blazes with fantasy, humor, and the most amazing special effects since Jurassic Park!

    Amazon.com

    In the closing paragraph of his 1996 review of Dragonheart, noted critic Roger Ebert summed up this adventurous fantasy quite nicely: "While no reasonable person over the age of 12 would presumably be able to take it seriously, there is nevertheless a lighthearted joy to it, a cheerfulness, an insouciance, that recalls the days when movies were content to be fun." That's precisely the quality that makes Dragonheart so appealing, despite the fact that it didn't exactly take flight and breathe fire at the box office. The movie takes itself seriously without sacrificing the wit and cleverness that make it so entertaining. It's about the last of the great dragon slayers, Bowen (Dennis Quaid), who teams up with the last of the great dragons, Draco (and voiced by Sean Connery), after they realize that killing each other would put them both out of business! So they devise a bogus dragon-slaying act that's a huge hit as they tour from village to village. Later, they must rouse the peasantry against the loutish Prince Einon (David Thewlis), whose life was once saved by Draco, but who now violates the "Old Code" of honor with a ruthless reign of terror. As Ebert rightly noted, Dragonheart is no masterpiece, and its story (which was originally conceived as a darker, more serious drama) isn't likely to capture everyone's heart (dragon or otherwise). But it's full of exciting action, witty dialogue, and gallant heroism, and in the presentation of a realistic talking dragon it's a milestone in computer-generated special effects, far surpassing the breakthroughs of Jurassic Park three years earlier. --Jeff Shannon.

    I guess it helps if you place the review under the right movie. Somehow I posted this review under the other Dragonheart Movie, A New Beginning.
    Dragonheart is one of my favorite movies, up there with The Last Unicorn. The music is good, the actors are fantastic, and the storyline actually has some thought to it.
    Dennis Quaid is great as Bowen, the knight turned dragon slayer. He looks the part as well as acting thepart of a dragon slayer bound by the old code, who is trying to rid the world of dragons so the evil in his protégé, King Einon, will be defeated.
    Sean Connery is great as the voice of Draco. According to the 'making of Dragonheart' feature on the DVD, the director had only Connery in mind for the voice, and spent 13 months trying to get the dragon to have facial and body actions that patterned Connery. I don't know if it's because Connery is so well known, or if it's because he can project life into Draco, but the dragon has a personality, and you can relate to it's sadness and fear throughout the movie.
    Pete Postlethwaite is good as the monk/historian/bad poet. He gives a bit of comic relief to the movie,especially in the later fighting scenes. His inability to remember his own poetry is also funny.
    Dina Meyer portrays the peasant Kara as a strong young woman who's willing to do almost anything todefeat King Einon and avenge the death of her father.
    David Thewlis is an awesome bad guy. He's not a physically powerful man, but his brain makes up for his lack of brawn. Plus, he's creepy, which adds to the bad guy image. His heartlessness as King Einon and the fact he's causing a dragon to lose his soul makes you want to hate him throughout the movie.
    The music is absolutely beautiful; Randy Edelman really created some wonderful music.

    Format:DVD
    If you are interested in this movie, buy the Collector's edition with Dolby Digital instead of this one as this DTS version offer nothing in special features and the sound is not much better than the Dolby Digital Version. And the most annoying part is when you put the disc inside your player, you are given an option to chose between DTS and Dolby Surround but you don't know which one is which as they just shift color when you chose and if you got it wrong, there is no way to get back to the option page, you have to stop the disc and open the drawer and insert the disc again. It is a pain.
    The movie itself is excellent about a Dragon who gave half of his heart in order to save a dying prince. The prince turned out to be an evil king and it is up to a knight (Dennis Quaid) and the dragon (voiced by Sean Connery) to save the people. The special effect is great and the acting is good. David Thewlis is very good as the evil king. The picture quality is fine and the DTS sound is good but not much better than the feature loaded Dolby Digital version. Just go ahead skip the DTS version and get the collector's edition. They are the same price.

    4.0 out of 5 stars HD-DVD version June 22, 2007
    Format:HD DVD
    Okay folks, I am guessing you have seen this movie as it is quite a few years old now so I will not bother going into the details of it. If you wish to know more about the plot then check it out on imdb.

    The big question is, how did it fare being transfered to HD-DVD? Well to sum it up I would say brilliantly. The video transfer is crisp and detailed, it does suffer a tad with film artifacts but this is the best we are ever going to see it that is for sure.

    The audio transfer is absolutely superb.

    You want HD-DVD? Well this is as good as it gets for this title.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A marvellous tale! October 10, 2002
    Format:DVD
    This is a wonderful tale with the Dragon (Sean Connery) stealing the show. Dennis Quaid is a knight of the Auld Code trying to teach his young prince how to be a true warrior. Instead he is corrupted by his father. Almost killed in a peasant rebellion his mother takes him to an ancient castle where a Dragon, keeper of the Auld Ways resides. In order to save the boy, the Dragon gives him half of his heart in return for promising to grow up to respect the Auld Code.
    He does not, instead turns out just like his father. Quaid blame the dragon and so be becomes a dragonslayer. Many years later he find the dragon (Connery having a field day!!) and instead of slaying him, realises he, too, was betrayed.
    It is a wonderful tale for the whole family!! But the Dragon is is simply amazing!!

    5.0 out of 5 stars The best film ever made January 2, 2001
    A Kid's Review
    Format:VHS Tape
    In my opinion this is the best film ever created. It is about the last of the dragonslayers, Bowen (Dennis Quaid). Bowen is the trainer of the young prince Einon (David Thewlis). But when Einon is hurt in battle, his mother takes him to the cave of Draco the Dragon (Sean Connery). Einon is near death, and Draco feels pity for him, so he gives him half his heart. From then on, they share each other's sufferings, and should one die they both die. When Einon returns home, he grows evil, just like his father. Bowen believes the dragon is the cause of this, and is terribly angry, for he cares greatly for Einon. He swears he will avenge Einon by destroying all the dragons. Some time into his quest, he meets Draco, though doesn't realize it is the same one that saved Einon. Bowen, over time, starts to like Draco, and decides not to destroy him. So they team up and begin a business of fake dragonslaying. The ending is thrilling and always brings tears to my eyes. I shall treasure this movie for the rest of my life. It is a picture of loneliness, friendship, and making terrible sacrifices. The combination of dragon and knightly lore and Sean Connery's wonderful acting brings out something special which generations of children should cherish for years to come. I am, and always will be, caught in its mesmerizing spell.
