1) The story made sense AND was relatively interesting (gasp!--a novel concept in the world of DTV releases!)
2) They actually did a lot of cool stylization; Celtic and Oriental--you can tell they put work into it (WORK!--yet another of the many unheard of concepts when making a DTV movie!)
3) The designs of the characters and even the dragons were pretty cool with only a few minor exceptions (see! MORE work and effort! The surprises go on and on!)
4) The opening backstory wasn't just "blah, blah, blah"; they actually had put some effort into the style and so continued it in the opening--which was actually cool (they didn't even stray into the realm of cliched storybook openings!)
5) An actual PLOT TWIST (oh, it's TOO MUCH!)
Really, the only downside was that the characters didn't move so well and a few minor coreography/fighting details that even most feature films miss. All in all, I applaud the makers--this movie is good in the DTV release view. It could even hold its own among some feature films.
Turns out, after looking all over for a movie store that had it for rent, it was a really good movie! Everyone enjoyed it, even me! The story was good, the bad guy(s) were mean and creepy, and the dragons were AWESOME!!! They were my favorite part; aside from Princess Kyra and her cool martial art skills.
I was happy that the main guy in a movie got shown up for once.
Kyra and Dev had a short fighting sequence and Kyra must've knocked the prince down at least three times!
The dragons were very cool! The wing flaps and tail movements were very realistic. The legs were realistic too, but the dragons didn't walk that much.
Anyway, it was a great movie and I'm glad I had the chance to watch it. If you like dragons, creepy wizards, and sword fights, you will love this movie!!!
Now, if only Megabloks could make their building toys as good as their movies.
So just what is this tale you wonder? The back-story centers on two feuding kingdoms: Draigar and Norvagen who, apparently have been unimpressed with one another for a good thousand years and counting. It turns out that much of the conflict can be attributed to the fact that the peacekeepers of the land, the Great Dragons (with a little help from their magic gemstones) have all but fled through a portal to a dimension where foolish war-mongering humans are not an issue.
In fact the piece opens with there remaining but a single dragon on each side of the conflict and a member of royalty (Prince Dev of the Viking-like Norvagen and Princess Kyra of the feudal Draigar) setting up an offensive against the other. Playing both sides of the coin is a shady wizard with control over the element of ice named Xenoz.
On the brink of all out war between the kingdoms, an army of trolls (Vorgan) said to be in the service of a rogue dragon appears and levels the playing field in one fell swoop.Read more ›
