An entirely enjoyable movie by any standards! (by piacathrin)
Dragonheart is, in my humble opinion, one of the best-ever dragon movies I have seen. And believe me, I have seen a lot of them. Most are poorly made with lagging stories and characters you cannot get into. I found that was not the case for Dragonheart. Draco, the dragon, was in my opinion a gorgeous creature and it didn't make it worse that he sounded like Sean Connery. : Dennis Quaid is always enjoyable, a gorgeous man with an infectious smile. Dina Meyer is lovely as Kara. So what if some of the plot is not 'believable'. It's a fairytale. Anything goes in fairy tales. <more>
Heck, that's what fairy tales are all about. Fantasy, imagination. So, when and if you watch/re-watch this movie, do so with an open heart and suspend your disbelief and analytical minds. This is fantasy in the truest sense.
Ah, Dragonheart. I still love this film... I could talk about the top-notch special effects of the time and the inclusion of Sean Connery and Dennis Quaid, who performed their roles of noble dragon and despairing knight incredibly well...I guess I just did...but I think there's something else about this film that needs mentioning.Dragonheart is an incredibly uplifting film. In a day when a lot of movies are chilling visions of the world around us, we need something to show us hope. Dragonheart, with its tale of a knight who lost his faith and a dragon who was trying to restore his honor, <more>
paints a beautiful picture of kindness, friendship, love, and sacrifice that never fails to inspire me. I am not a man given to displays of emotion, really...but the film makes me laugh and cry throughout everything.And the soundtrack certainly helps. It is a textbook example of the proper use of a soundtrack to emphasize the plot and emotion. The beautiful "To the Stars" remains one of my absolute favorite songs. I can never listen to the soundtrack without seeing the movie happening again before my eyes.Get the movie. And get the soundtrack. You'll love them both.
There are many fantasy films around today that show how far some people's imagination can be stretched. Loads of these films have the good idea, but the bad production making it a very poor film. This is NOT the case in Dragonheart.For a film to be a success, you need to show as much goodness you have as well as badness. You need to have the equal balance of a nasty character that contains the exact amount of evil to comply with this.In the case of Dragonheart, we have the evil King Einon, demonstrated by David Thewlis. A fine performance to show how much evil can be inflicted by the <more>
control of one heartless man.Yet, in every film we have a hero, or in this case, 2. Dennis Quaid plays Bowen, a strong and faithful knight who lives in the service to protect others. Our other hero is the unlikely character of a dragon Sean Connery and his lovely voice named Draco. Between these 2 hero's, an alliance is made and they work together in hope of making peoples lives better.The direction, the acting, the costume and the characters all fit together to make this film be, what I believe, an amazing success. I know not many may agree to this, but I think, when you look deep into this film, you can see the true magic that is brought alive by the relationship between these two characters.In my view, an amazing film, an amazing cast and an amazing result.
Okay, I'm going to start with the fact that this is one of my favourite films-I remember seeing it when I was younger and last year when I spotted the 'special edition' DVD I snapped it straight up!!********SPOILERS!*******Okay, mainly people who have seen/liked/or just generally want to comment on a film come here-so I shall not describe the whole film-just bits that are needed.Firstly, casting-I actually think the casting was good on this film-Quaid as Bowen was good-physically he is right strong, good looking etc. and his presence is right-you believe that this character <more>
generally believes that Einon has 'turned' bad because of this Dragon who gave half his heart-thus creating a good straight-forward story line. In the beginning Bowen really loved the younger Einon and thats why it is quite painful to see in the first fight scene between Bowen and Einon at the waterfall that in fact Einon never believed Bowen's teachings of 'the old code,' you can see the sadness and realisation in Bowen, that Einon is 'bad' and was even at the beginning.Thewlis as Einon-brill-actually Thewlis is one of my favourite actors because of the 'brains' he puts into his characters-take Einon, for example-not outly strong, etc.-but you can see that this character thinks-he's educated he knows what he is doing. You only have to look at the scene with Einon and kara in the bed chamber-look at how Thewlis plays the character-using words, the ideas of 'power' to manipulate her. Of course, its a family film and he is generally a good 'badie' but luckily not a straight-forward, stereotypical one. I must say he gives one of the best performances in the film.Dina Meyer- this was one of her first films I believe and she does well-physically quite strong which is quite a rarity to see a female who can stand up for herself in such films but also adding a good character to assist Bowen.Postlethwaite- very funny-I think he's a great actor and I loved him in this-different to a lot of stuff he had done, especially before this film-the character adds a comical touch to the film-but also he just generally portrays a 'good' character.Connery-good, for the voice-you can tell the actor straight away and I think thats why he was chosen-but also I think his voice just adds something to the part.The effects-brill, esp. for their time-even now they still stand on their own and as a viewer you can just relax and freeze reality for a while and believe that a dragon is actually talking etc. on screen.Overall, a great film, that will touch the hearts of many-young and old. This is a film to watch over and over-full of laughs, fights, the odd tears and of course the classic battle between Good and Evil.If you haven't seen it before-rent it, relax, forget everything in reality for a couple of hours and just watch this great fantasy film.
This movie was one of the best I have seen in 1996. They picked the perfect music and characters. I think though if made a bit later on in years that graphics could of have been a bit better. Though they showed a lot of detail and went beyond what you could possibly do at that time. I like how the story line plays out so smoothly and it all connects together. I don't you could ask for a better movie really back then. My brother and I loved it so much we rented it and watched it all day. I must say that Sean Conery did a great job with the voice of Draco, no one could have been better for <more>
that part. If you really pay attention in the movie you will begin to walk in it on your own. At the end it almost feels like your that brave night that accompined Draco on his last journey.
I'm surprised this movie is not at least a 7 in IMDb. Dragonheart used to be one of my favorite movies when I was teenager. It is fun, funny and emotional, the CGI are great for late 90's and Denis Quaid acting is remarkable. Leaving aside the fact that this is a story about dragons and knights, The bottom story of honor and betrayal is a little stereotypical but still very catching. To me the downside is the antagonist casting: The guy is so boring. Other than that, Sean Connery's voice and the movie soundtrack are spectacular. Highly recommended to watch in family for those who <more>
haven't seen it yet, and for the rest, revisiting this title now and then, can be a good plan for a Sunday afternoon.
I have read innumerable reviews stating emphatically how "stupid" or "unrealistic" "Dragonheart" is. And, I suppose the largest fault this movie has is not going as in-depth into its own mythology as it could have Draco being able to share his heart, and the like . But for me, it is great, for one big reason: I love dragons. I always have. I hate how they are always depicted as evil monsters in most fantasy stories this would be Tolkien's biggest flaw in my opinion . And here is one where the dragon is noble and kind! Sean Connery, by the way, has just about <more>
the best dragon voice there is Gregory Peck might be a close second ."Dragonheart" may strike casual viewers or the terminally unimaginative as a silly, special-effects extravaganza; but, for people who love dragons, it provides something more.
Dragon Fun To Watch In This Mostly-Enjoyable Fantasy (by ccthemovieman-1)
This was kind of a hokey Class-B fantasy-adventure story but with Grade A special effects with the dragon and sound. Those visual and audio treats make it worth watching. This was early "demo"-type DVD disc, exhibiting some excellent surround sound when very few other DVDs were as audibly as good.The story begins a bit slowly but once the dragon appears it's a fun and fascinating movie to watch. A decade ago when this came out, I marveled, "It's amazing how they can make strange creatures so lifelike." Of course, FX has only gotten better and better.For me, the <more>
dragon was the only endearing character in the movie. Dennis Quaid plays the good guy, but he's mostly annoying in here. I think it was his fake raspy voice that was irritating. In all, a fun movie.At any rate, the movie is pure medieval fantasy and theology but entertaining enough for kids and adults. There is no bad language in here.
This is excellent movie. Taking Picture of this movie is much good. Acting is nice and Story of this movie is OK. This is completely movie for all kind of person like child, adult and old. I like this movie. Soundtrack is also much impressive. Clean from mistakes. Camera direction is also good but some part of this movie is little improve need. Anyway this movie make all much fun rather than waste time. Fulllllllll Family Picture. when I watched this movie, I never felt that dragon was animation. I felt real dragon in movie. This is nice movie in front of me and that's why I give 8 out of <more>
