Quite impressive acting, though the dragon still looks fake
23 August 2000 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

Considering that I watched this after Dragonheart, I found this still quite refreshing the way dragon stories go. Seems like in these days, not all dragons are evil and deserve to be slayed, but there will always be at least one which becomes a hero dragon. Same here. A young prince discovers the family dragon, which although was like a toy at the beginning of the story, finally grows to become a behemoth that helps the prince win his kingdom and people. Devin Oatway (an unknown to me) is quite a character as the prince, although young, managing to put across a performance worthy of the film's 8 stars. A nice family show to watch beside the fire.
