The young, sickly King Einon was wounded in a battle. In order for him to survive, he is healed by Draco, a dragon. Some years later, Bowen, a dragon slayer, encounters Draco. The two team up to form a traveling duo that perform an act, but the act is only known by themselves. Bowen supposedly "slays" Draco and then collects a reward from the town or village that he protects by killing the dragon who had been "terrorizing" them. From there, Bowen and Draco must save the entire kingdom from the rule of the now evil King Einon, who is part of Draco and Draco a part of him. Written by

[after Bowen has been in his mouth for several hours]
It seems we're in a bit of a stalemate... Wouldn't you say?
[Wipes away slobbery dragon spit]
I can go three days without sleep.
I can go three weeks.
[Groans in frustration]
I'll stab you before I nod off.
And I'll chomp you.
Marvelous... we'll kill each other.
What do you suggest?
A truce. Get out of my mouth and we'll talk... face-to-face.
How do I know I can trust you?

Dragonheart is an excellent movie. The CGI of Draco is superb, especially for its time, and the storyline is well thought out. Although the movie lacks a decent antagonist, the plot fills in for whatever Einon lacks in his role.
Draco is such an excellent character, possibly one of my favorites of all-time in films. He is exactly what a dragon should be, exactly how I imagined. Quaid does an excellent job as Bowen, and did well as Draco was not really there during filming.
The music in Dragonheart is one of the most memorable themes ever composed. Randy Edelman composed a great theme for this film, which could probably be recognized by nearly anybody. "This is from Dragonheart!"
This is definitely one of the best movies ever made. The acting is excellent, CGI fits perfectly, the characters are deep, well-rounded, and the storyline and plotline are both great. The ending is so sad, though. If you're a male, make sure no one else is around while watching this movie if you're ashamed of crying in front of people.
Watch this movie. It's a great way to spend some time.
