    Great dragon in a not-as-great movie

    Dragonheart is probably the first dragon movie I can remember watching. (I don't really think that brief bit in Willow with the two-headed hydra-dragon-thing counts.) But by then I'd already read so many books with dragons in them---and, for that matter, books about all the different kinds of dragons in myth and legend---that I had a pretty solid idea of how dragons should look and behave and how a dragon story really ought to go. In those regards, Dragonheart both pleased and disappointed.

    I loved the film's concept of dragon anatomy. A dragon structured a bit like a cat? How clever! And sensible! And how very much more approachable and real they seemed than some of the thick-bodied mythological dragons I'd encountered. I also liked the idea of dragons as wise, clever, but frequently hungry guardians to mankind. But the plot, while basically solid, wasn't tight enough to hold all the detail the film needed to be really convincing. It was poignant and funny, but seemed more a modern-day dragon veneer than a moving, superbly written dragon story. I liked it, but I couldn't help feeling the whole time I was watching that something significant was missing.
