2.0 out of 5 stars Fire dragons vs ice dragons August 18, 2010
Format:DVD
I honestly feel sorry for Pitof. The guy started off with such stylistic promise, but then he directed "Catwoman" and it was all downhill from there. And his latest fantasy foray is "Fire And Ice: The Dragon Chronicles," a movie that is quite good by the standards of SyFy/Sci-Fi original movies (Alert: now damning with faint praise!), but is still a massive stewpot of bad fantasy cliches.

Carpia is a happy, clean, Renaissance Faire kind of kingdom... until a giant dragon starts periodically visiting to burn everything. With the population starving (although everybody still looks pretty plump), Princess Louisa (Amy Ackers) sets out to find a legendary banished knight who is apparently the ONLY PERSON who can slay a dragon. Sadly, the guy has died and she has to deal with his money-grubbing son Gabriel (Tom Wisdom).

So how do you kill a fire dragon? Uh... apparently you sic an ice dragon on it, although it seems Gabriel's dad didn't do that. And of course, while they're fighting the good king of Carpia will clash at last with the evil king of a neighboring kingdom. Symbolism!

Let's see, we have a Han-Soloish hero, slimy advisor, wise and quirky mentor, spunky tomboy princess, perfect king, evil king, and sinister forest inhabited by malevolent savages? It feels like Pitof mined every single cliche he could come up with for "Fire and Ice," and just added water for INSTANT EPIC FANTASY MOVIE.

Even worse, the script has painful dialogue ("I'm expecting a hollow echo when I pierce your heart"), plot holes (these kingdoms are TINY), and some really bizarre moments (behold the Medieval Movie Projector!).

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful. June 24, 2010
Format:DVD
Fire & Ice (Pitof, 2008)

First, the good: Fire & Ice has, quite simply, the coolest damn dragons I have ever, bar none, seen in a fantasy movie.

Now, the bad: everything else. Pitof started out his career with the entertaining, if shallow, Chronicles of Vidocq, and has since been traversing a slippery downward slope that has landed him at this most mediocre of levels: directing Sci-Fi Channel Original Movies. How is it that you can come up with a cast of this caliber and still make a movie this awful?

Plot: a fire dragon has been ravaging a kingdom. In order to get rid of it, Gabriel (300's Tom Wisdom), the son of the last dragonslayer, along with his faithful assistant Sangmiel (John Rhys-Davies) and naive-but-spunky princess Luisa (Alias' Amy Acker), has to travel to the next kingdom over, swipe a dragon egg, and use it to awaken an ice dragon...and then hope the two of them will kill one another.

Now, those who have watched the movie (I'm not sure I've encountered anyone I'd call a "fan") seem to be divided on the dragons. This is because they don't look like one expects a dragon to look. (But then, neither do Eastern dragons...) They look more like giant manta rays that were in some way crossed with comets so that their particular element floats around them and trails them like a cloud. Okay, so it's not traditional. That doesn't mean it's not really, really cool. It's actually an original take on something, which is something this movie otherwise sadly lacks. It also lacks a workable script, any decent editing, competent cinematography, a decent soundtrack, and, most surprisingly, good acting. This is quite the cast here. (I didn't mention The Mummy's Arnold Vosloo or Children of Men's Oana Pellea, either.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, but not quite there. October 16, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If I have anything really good to say about Fire & Ice-Dragon Chronicles it's that the dragons were very imaginative and break out of the typical dinosaur with wings style many use as the basis for a dragon. They are more like reptilian/elemental manta rays flying through the air. For the most part the action and story focuses on the people and the kingdoms affected by the first dragon and much of THAT part of the story is fairly stereotypical (though there were a few good twists).

4.0 out of 5 stars fire and Ice May 4, 2013
Format:DVD
I've seen the movie on TV and loved it. I like those period movies, especially from the medieval period. No big name stars, but a couple faces you'll recognize. If you like fantasy and knights and dragons, I think you'll really like this movie. Just don't take it too seriously. I give it a four star out of 5 rating.

4.0 out of 5 stars Smart Female lead - how did that slip by? October 9, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this movie.

I liked the fact that the Princess (Amy Acker - Angel) was strong, caring, and big suprise, not dressed in the usual slutty SyFy outfits. Her Father the King is played by the always great Arnold Vosloo (The Mummy). And as a Divinci-type character John Rhy-Davies (Sliders) is fun as always. I don't remember the name of the actor who plays the dragon fighter - but he is a hottie and actually adds to the movie (as does the leader of the Guards from the other town - yowza!)

I'm not going to try and retell the entire story here, but it was great to see strong men AND women characters that had chemistry and were compelling individuals (good or bad). The dragons were fun/ok, and the story line actually continued to the end of the movie (which if you are a fan of Sci-Fi movies you know this can be a problem). The Princess stayed strong and didn't become a Disney "I need to be saved by the Prince" two diamensional wimpy washout (I don't mean you Mulan!!).

Bottom line is that the acting is pretty good, the scenery is beautiful, and the story is strong. Are we talking Oscar here? OF COURSE NOT. But it is fun - and don't forget it has Dragons! How bad could it be?
