Editorial Reviews

A true sword and sorcery epic, Attack of the Gryphon, chronicles the story of two kingdoms brought together in their quest to defeat the Gryphon and the evil Sorcerer who controls him. Long ago, a feud between princely brothers Delphus and Lock tore the once great kingdom of Vallon in two. Centuries later the warring kingdoms of Delphi and Lockland remain embroiled in perpetual battle. On the eve of Lockland's destruction, the Lockland King orders his Sorcerer to raise the Gryphon against his enemies. The plan is a success until the Sorcerer commands the Gryphon turn on Lockland in an effort to bring both kingdoms under his evil authority.

I had wondered what this film was - and I was impressed with it to a small degree. The production is that of a school play, with the strength of the film majorly on the good characters, especially Amber Benson's character.

I was rather removed from the idea of the villain and his cronies - Nobody on the opposing side seemed believable, until they tried to thrawt the heroes, usually right in front of them. The major character of the story, the mystical gryphon, doesn't feel really like it belongs in the film - it's not alive in the scene, it looks like it was animated and composed into the scene without a touch of realism.

Condering the production was produced for the SCIFI Channel, the film is low-budget. However, I didn't consider the film "bad", but "cheesy", and it does deserve some attention. My best advice - Be an Amber fan, that way you won't be offended, and throw twenty dollars down the drain.

I enjoy fantasy movies, and dragons, or gryphons in this movie, are always of interest, epsecially when their presence in the story is central to the action. I guess I've got used to the high quality Hollywood or British FX seen in so many movies recently, that this one came as a real disappointment. From the end credits I believe an east european company were responsible, although I could be wrong. Whoever they are, or wherever they are based, I'm sorry to write that their efforts marred what was otherwise a well thought out story. I am particularly sorry because this movie cast Amber Benson, an actress whose work I always admire, in an action hero role, and she was particularly good at the cut and thrust of the sword and sorcery story. I was pleased that she had this opportunity to shine, just sorry that the FX marred the end result.

I've been hot for Amber Benson ever since her stint on Buffy as a lesbian witch. That said, they really didn't give her a lot of good lines in this painfully period piece (as compared to later fare mixing current language and behavior with olden-tyme themes). Still, it was okay, but the obvious scrimping on special effects (hey, it was a SyFy production, after all) took some of the fun out of it.

In terms of concept and plot, this movie is basically Saturday morning kids fare, with a cartoonish portrayal of the gryphon, a villain who belongs in a drag burlesque review, and a simple story line that will intrigue the kiddies, but is altogether predictable. Admittedly the story improves a bit as it progresses. And there are a couple of pg-13 scenes (gore, heroes about to make love). Overall, this is light-weight entertainment, and when approached as such, is enjoyable.

this movie was an entertaining movie, a little cheesy in some parts like grafics of the griffen but all in all it is a good movie to watch and enjoy, if you like sifi especially.

This film is typical swords and sorcery fare, centuries before the start of the movie the conflict between a king's two sons split a nation into two and they have been at war since. At the start of the movie one of those nations is set to be annihilated by the other, in desperation the king have his court sorcerer summon the nation's old defender, a Gryphon, things however go downhill from there when the sorcerer uses his new pet monster to try to conquer both the nations and unite them under his rule. What follows is a fetch quest where the prince from one of the nations and the princess from the other have to join forces to try to destroy the sorcerer.

This movie is one big fetch quest, but there is enough interesting characters and plot twists to keep it fun, this is a movie that do not stray from it's genre at all, but it do what it do fairly well. I had allot of fun watching the movie. Now if you are expecting Lord of the Rings then you will not get that here, however as a fun little flick to provide a hour and a half of entertainment then Attack of the Gryphon works well.

My biggest problem with this movie is the special effects, the title character the Gryphon looks like it comes straight out of a Playstation 2 game, the computer graphics really is terrible. Now this usually can be excused as long as the story is good, however here the CG is so horrible it is really disturbing, especially when actors have to interact with their sprite monster. There is a scene where the sorcerer is petting the Gryphon on the beak, and seriously the actor's hand is 10 cm over the beak as not only have they made a bag CG creature they have integrated it into the film poorly to.

A perfect example of a very low computer budget. the special effects stunk. if you're going to make a movie of this type, have the money to do it right. did some grade school students make this?
