Problem being the film doesn't look anything like England but in fact looks exactly like where they shot it, eastern Europe. I did get the feeling that most of the budget for this film was used on creating the CGI dragon as everything else looks pretty poor really.
This King only seems to be King of a small valley, there is no other mention of the rest of England or any other people outside this valley.
The effects at the time were big, they were big time effects believe me, this film garnered much attention because of its CGI dragon.
Looking back now its nicely done on the whole but obviously with time the cracks are now evident and the CGI shines through.
There are some nice shots when 'Draco' is wet and when he breathes fire, plus the flying sequences are quite good but when he chats with humans it becomes a bit iffy.
And yes Draco is his name, draco the dragon, surely they could come up with something a bit more original?.
The idea of a knight and a dragon teaming up for a living during the medieval period is a good one but it doesn't quite feel fully serviced here.
We only get a very very bare bones look at other peasants, other villages and how they go about this agreement.
No sooner have we seen one badly interpreted village scam the plot goes off down this rebellion route against the evil young King.
We then get a very very very average looking final battle sequence against I dunno, about 50 horseback troops and about peasants who were conveniently trained up in the art of war not more than a few hours before.
There isn't really any decent lore in this film either, nothing on dragons much. The fact Draco can speak is hugely important I would of thought, it shows he is an intelligent beast, not just a dumb killing machine, surely humans could learn a great deal from this creature.
I also want to know if all dragons can speak in this universe, they clearly have magic powers and possible immortality with a human, sheesh there is loads to discover here but we get nothing!.
Why on earth would people wanna kill all these super intelligent sentient beings off?!!. It really does all feel a bit low rent In fact the dragon is the best thing in the film really, Quaid looks bad in his blonde wig, Dina Meyer looks ridiculous in her peasant garb, Isaacs is wasted, Postlethwaite is also wasted but Thewlis is actually a decent slimy King The choice of Connery as Draco is a good one, no complaints there, in fact its perfect.
A fun cheerful fantasy with a surprisingly stirring orchestral score no doubt, but looking back its all very hokey and quite poorly made if you look closer.
The selling point is Draco obviously and without him I think this would have been a disaster. Its a B-movie with an A grade effect in it basically.
Phil H Super Reviewer. Dec 02, Dragonheart is an exciting movie that is pure entertainment and a childs fantasy, but sadly they try so hard to make it more lovable to children that it ends up being a very immature film.
Dragons are cool, lets all face this truth, and movie about a man who partners with a drogon to take down a corrupt prince sounds cool to me.
The plot is a lot of mystical mumbo jumbo and the characters are nothing to get worked up about, with the exception of Draco who was incredibly fun for all ages.
Kids may buy into this story but as for me I found its simplicity just fun. The cast consists of actors like Dennis Quaid, who gives a well done and steady performance, and voice work from Sean Connery who gave Draco a great edge.
The visual effects were very impressive for its time and I really enjoyed the beauty of the film. Dragonheart is cheesy and childish, lets be honest, but its just pure fun and imagination with everything and it was good enough for me.
Bradley W Super Reviewer. Aug 28, Dragonheart is a thrilling fantasy adventure that tells the story of King Einon who was wounded and summons Draco, one of the last living dragons in the land.
Unfortunately when Einon grows to be an adult, he becomes a cruel king, with no compassion. I first saw Dragonheart when I was young, and it was a film that captured my imagination.
I've seen a second time in the past years or so, and I still thought the film was just as exciting as it was the first time that I saw it.
The film has a great cast of talented actors, great action, a well developed story, and if you're looking for a wonderful Fantasy film about dragons; then Dragonheart is the film for you.
The story I thought was very compelling with plenty of action and drama elements that was necessary to tell a terrific story.
Although he only voiced the CGI dragon, Sean Connery was wonderful, and I thought he was a key player to making this a wonderful film experience.
Though by today's standards, the CGI looks primitive; Dragonheart is still a thrilling Fantasy Action Adventure film that delivers terrific entertainment.
I never really cared for Dragon films to be honest, but Dragonheart is a film that stood out for me and I thought it was a wonderful and fun film to watch.
With lots of action, adventure and drama; Dragonheart is a classic of the genre, and is quite frankly underrated.
A wonderful film that has elements will appeal to everyone. Alex r Super Reviewer. Jul 09, Nay Nay B Super Reviewer.

Patrick Read Johnson , who wrote the story for Dragonheart , first proposed the idea for the film to producer Raffaella De Laurentiis.
Johnson described it as " The Skin Game with a dragon in it According to Cohen, Badham "didn't respond" to the material, so Johnson was then asked to direct the film.
This was sort of the first scene that I thought of with the knight in the dragon's mouth with his sword against the roof his mouth.
I knew they would come to the conclusion that the only way for them to continue to survive was to stage these mock battles all over the countryside and get paid in heaps of gold.
Johnson and Charles Edward Pogue collaborated on the script and submitted it to Universal Pictures on a Friday, and two days later on Monday morning, Universal gave Johnson the green light to start making the film as the script produced such a strong emotional response from studio executives.
Johnson described Dragonheart as its own phenomenon that took off in Hollywood since it was "a movie that everybody wanted to be in, and everybody wanted to score, and everybody wanted to be the cinematographer of, and everybody wanted to direct.
Additionally, according to Johnson, Universal saw the Creature Shop test footage as the pretext for the quality of the final film, and went behind his back trying to remove him from the project and give it to an A-list director since Johnson only had one film to his name at the time.
When Universal ended his contract, Johnson was only paid and given credit as executive producer and for writing the story.
For his desired direction for the film, Johnson said. I wanted this to be a more noble film than it ended up being.
I still wanted it to be fun, and I wanted it to be charming and clever. I wanted it to have a more European feeling.
Like something Terry Gilliam might do. Then as Universal sought a replacement director, Richard Donner was approached and Kenneth Branagh was declined when the studio said the amount he asked for to both star in the film and direct it was too expensive.
Johnson said he harbored no ill will for Cohen taking over the project until he "started hearing the horror stories about how Chuck Pogue was being treated, and then I started seeing Rob taking credit for things that weren't his to take credit for"—e.
Cohen also took credit for Draco's design and Sean Connery being Draco's voice actor. Johnson cites an article from Cinescape magazine "where Rob is again asked about the origin of the project and he basically tries to sell the idea that I was some film student that somehow got attached to this great project that somehow pre-existed my involvement.
When meeting for drinks in Bora Bora , Johnson pitched the idea for Dragonheart to Pogue and he agreed to work on the film. Together, Johnson and Pogue worked on the script, developing the characters and the Old Code.
After the script was completed in , it went unchanged for the next four years, but since it got such a resounding response, Universal fired Johnson in the hopes of getting a more experienced director like Steven Spielberg.
Since Jurassic Park was released and Universal Studios sought to have Draco made with CGI like the dinosaurs, this meant the script had to be altered in accordance with Draco's allowed screen time based on the film's budget.
As a result, Draco would be seen in the film less often compared to his appearances in the original script, which included a sequence with Bowen flying around on Draco's back.
According to Pogue, production on the film became troublesome after Rob Cohen was hired as he felt the director "had neither the poetry in his soul nor the panache to bring Dragonheart to the screen.
For example, there's a scene that was filmed of Kara and Bowen declaring their love for each other, during which Bowen asks Kara for her "lady's favor", Kara reveals she was raped by Einon and therefore has nothing to give Bowen, and ends with Bowen kneeling and giving her a chaste kiss on the hand.
Cohen reportedly removed the scene because he felt Kara should be more of an action-oriented character swinging axes around and didn't believe she would go around making "sappy speeches", but according to Pogue, the scene was cut because Cohen couldn't get the desired performance, which involved having Kara and Bowen in an intimate embrace instead of the kiss on the hand, and got into conflict with Dina Meyer.
This also caused the deletion of a scene with the peasant army giving Bowen a suit of armor they make for him and Bowen being overwhelmed with emotion, which Pogue considered Dennis Quaid's best scene.
Cohen's desire to showcase Draco as the film's main attraction caused vital " connective tissue " scenes of the film to be dropped and as a result made the film feel inconsistent and rushed.
Pogue said the film also suffered because of Universal aiming to turn Dragonheart into more of a kids' movie as the dark and serious elements were either removed or dumbed-down.
As said by Johnson, "They messed with the script and started adding things like, "Ready or not here I come!
It's Draco! All this cheesy crap that just juvenilized the picture. Another change Cohen made to the script that was a bone of contention to Pogue was the lack of logic in the addition of the pigs to the swamp village scene.
In Johnson's words,. Like this village that's surrounded by 10 million pigs, but all the people are starving, and yelling out, "We're starving!
We need meat! Let's kill the dragon," but they're surrounded by pigs! So, I'm trying to find the logic here.
I just didn't get that. Pogue explains that Draco uses the scams he and Bowen do as a way to "pick at Bowen's conscience and test his morality" as each village they go to is more poverty-stricken than the last.
This point would come to a head and serve Bowen's character arc at the swamp village where its people are beyond poor and Bowen feels he can no longer justify the scams as a way of being a thorn in Einon's side.
