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
More than 200 photos were taken of Sean Connery with a variety of facial expressions, which, along with footage of his voice recording, were used to make Draco bear a stronger resemblance to him. See more »
When Bowen is helping to train the resistance, Gilbert is just learning how to shoot a bow and arrow. When he goes for the second shot, the end of the arrow (feathers) is spotted black and white, but the next second, as he brings it up to his ear, it has a white feather instead of the black and white one, and it's still the same shot.

[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?

I have read innumerable reviews stating emphatically how "stupid" or "unrealistic" "Dragonheart" is. And, I suppose the largest fault this movie has is not going as in-depth into its own mythology as it could have(Draco being able to share his heart, and the like). But for me, it is great, for one big reason: I love dragons. I always have. I hate how they are always depicted as evil monsters in most fantasy stories(this would be Tolkien's biggest flaw in my opinion). And here is one where the dragon is noble and kind! Sean Connery, by the way, has just about the best dragon voice there is(Gregory Peck might be a close second).
"Dragonheart" may strike casual viewers(or the terminally unimaginative)as a silly, special-effects extravaganza; but, for people who love dragons, it provides something more.
