Then in 2000 some jerk decided to create a sequel. I won't give away the ending but it left no room for a sequel. Maybe if it was done right it could have been Okay but it is not done right at all. Dragonheart a New Beginning is a disaster. They took an immortal classic and turned it into a blow end kids flick. All the multilayered story and epic action sequences that I loved about the first Dragonheart is destroyed to make it for the peanut gallery. Four years of effects breakthroughs create a dragon named Drake who looks like a cartoon. The animation is a disaster. Its horrible. Universal obviously saw no need for any work to be done. He also has a very low voice quality. Nothing like the brilliant work Sean Connary did. Buy this and throw the second disc in the trash and enjoy the first classic for all its glory.
Both of the film's protagonists were so naive that it had me squirming to watch them fall into the clutches of the evil and deceptive Osric.
The session Drake has with Kwan on learning to breathe fire is a hoot!
The costuming and sets were on a par with the original. I enjoyed seeing more of beautiful Slovakia.
There seemed to be some hinting around at the end that suggested there might be yet another movie in the offing. I am interested in what sort of story they might have in mind. I would like to see Drake with a better developed set of horns!
There are a couple of faults I find with this movie: I would have liked to have seen more of Drake and a longer fight scene at the end. The animation was not as fluid as the original Dragonheart. It wasn't awful either. I felt the story was a good one; a longer film would have fleshed it out more.
The original Dragonheart stands alone in its genre. I don't think another film will be made that is up to it's par.
I appreciate that the producers of A New Beginning did not try to duplicate the first movie; they went in a completly different direction and told a story that is family friendly and satisfying in it's own right.
Four stars for a solid family film.
I don't think it is possible to put the feelings on the paper , so it is better if you watch this. And wish for the third sequel.

Interesting story line and is fun to watch! Sean Connery's vocals for the dragon is great and gives the character charisma.Published 1 month ago by golfer01
A little vulgar at times for a cheap laugh, but okay. It's that kind of movie where you are left saying "if only if they had put this in the story" or "if only they... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Joseph B. Strong
