Trivia

The scene where Drake produces ignited flatulence and destroys the mill by accident is partly re-used from DragonHeart (1996) when Bowen and Draco attacked the first village - footage from the first film is used as the mill bursts into flames. See more »

Goofs

Kwan's hand movements are several seconds late when he says "Turn that way so you don't hit the mill. Then let it all out." See more »

Quotes

Lord Osric of Crossley: One solitary dragon escaped Bowen's wrath and fled to the East, a dragon who learned that the pledge to serve mankind was nothing more than a *cruel joke*! Oh, oh, he sought his revenge! But, in the end, his heart too was... plundered. And he was cursed, to live out his life in the form he hated most... as a man.

Unnecessary and disappointing sequel
17 November 2004 | by (Odessa, Ukraine) – See all my reviews

Four years after original Dragonheart movie, which I liked a lot Universal released on video this cheap and rather pathetic sequel. I saw it a few days ago and it was far below my expectations, although it wasn't completely a bad movie. If you don't expect too much and don't take it too serious it can be at least watchable and even entertained. But that's all about it.

There is no intelligent story and no true atmosphere of medieval age as it was in Dragonheart. Actually, the story is poor and it has the certain lack of emotional appealing. The characters development was totally forgotten and with pathetic villains, Asians and Kung-fu in the middle of medieval Europe, ice-breathing dragons, silly jokes and worst of all with ridiculous ending A New Beginning was unable to bring to its audience a memorable and well-constructed story.

The same was with the cast in the movie. It looks like the studio was counting every buck making the movie and no one actor and no one character from the original movie didn't return for the sequel. Even if I mostly liked Chris Masterson in his part in Malcolm in the Middle TV series, his choice for the lead character was totally ineffective. Maybe because of his lack of acting experience he was very unconvincing and unable to wake up the audience. Even visuals were unoriginal and poor. It's a case when the term "unnecessary sequel" instantly and unintentionally came to mind without any invitation. Dragonheart: A New Beginning is a typical example of making cheap, uninteresting movie sequel and burying the franchise.

Grade 4 out of 10.
