Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
A rousing adventure for kids and parents alike, this straight-to-video sequel lacks the original Dragonheart's star power, but in all other ways it is a worthy successor. The movie opens in a medieval abbey, where the world's last living dragon (voiced by Robby Benson) is guarded by devoted friars and their stable boy Geoffrey (Chris Masterson from TV's Malcolm in the Middle), who aspires to knighthood. He discovers that the creature figures prominently in a cryptic prophecy that interests power-mad Lord Osric (Harry Van Gorkum) and Chinese princess Lian (Rona Figueroa). Geoffrey's efforts to save the dragon are dramatized with panache by director Doug Lefler, who composes scenes with a painterly eye, using picturesque locations and handsome sets to good advantage. Masterson is quite likable as the brash young hero, and Van Gorkum's suave villain, very much like Basil Rathbone in the old Errol Flynn swashbucklers, makes a formidable adversary. Outfitted with elaborate and fully convincing special effects, thrilling action sequences, and a stirring musical score, Dragonheart: A New Beginning is guaranteed to delight viewers of all ages.

This movie was dreadful. Absolute waste of time, people. Blah. The special effects were leaps and bounds below the level of the film's namesake...(which was amazing, by the by) and I couldn't bring myself to reccomend it to anyone. Ever. Gah.
