Too violent for kids. Too kiddie for adults.
Third film of the unnecessary Dragonheart franchise. I never saw the first film and am not quite sure what compelled me to record this off of the El Rey Network, but I did. The first sequel was better than I expected and I actually liked this third film just about as much. The story here is about involves another young person, a knight this time, befriending a dragon. The conflict involves the young knight helping the dragon protect a clutch of eggs from an evil sorcerer, as well as other plot lines involving Hadrian's Wall and barbarian hoards. Like the prior sequel 15 years earlier, this PG-13 film felt as if it were basically a kids movie, but with PG-13 levels of violence, rendering it not appropriate for the kiddies and left me wondering who was the target audience? Still, I did find myself entertained and never really bored, which is more than I can say for a lot of films.
