The story has many familiar dragon motifs found throughout Western culture, in particular St. George and the Dragon, in which maiden sacrifices were made to appease a harassing dragon. St. George's tale also includes a sacrificial lottery resulting in the surprise condemnation of a princess. St. George is also frequently depicted with a magic (blessed) lance or a sword. See more »

An intelligent Fantasy movie. The 80's produced many good fantasy movies but this one stands above the rest. The special effects (by ILM, same folks who did Star Wars) are superb. This is the best Dragon you have ever seen on screen. The cast is a mixed lot. Some are obviously trained stage actors while some are very fresh (i.e. new to acting). Fairly good performances from all nonetheless. The plot is top notch. This is not simple minded hack and slash. So if you want some mindless action flick, go elsewhere (preferably over a cliff). The plot moves slowly and you have to pay close attention to details or else you won't get it. In fact the the first time you watch it you may think you see some errors. They are not. Keep watching and all will fall in place. This is a movie which rewards the patient. And it rewards them exceedingly well. Enjoy!
