Storyline

The world has become a vast conglomerate of islands of varying size and shape. This babbling universe is mainly populated with ruthless rogues, surly peasants and illiterate, petty lords. Their main concerns revolve around two fundamental rules: Eat and don't get eaten. For this new world has become infested with a terrible plague: omnipresent, monstrously famished, mutant creatures, are wreaking havoc - They are known as the Dragons. Gwizdo and Lian-Chu are two dragon hunters, but are a long way from being among the best. Their only real talents: the size of the hulking brute with the heart of gold, Lian-Chu, and Gwizdo's talent for scams of all and any shape or form. Their sole ambition: to buy a little farm where they can relax and raise mussels, a creature that is a lot less unpleasant and difficult to hunt down than dragons. A few islands away rises the fortress of Lord Arnold. Arnold has a problem: he's living in terror at the thought of the return of World Eater, that horrible ... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

There is an 'Easter Egg' near the beginning, after Zoé is saved from the Jim Bobs by Lian-Chu and Gwizdo is relating the exploits of 'Sir' Lian-Chu in order to convince Zoé to hire them, and Gwizdo says "Wham, bam, thank you ma'am!" This is American adult slang for a 'quickie' or a brief sexual encounter, and inappropriate in an animated movie intended for young audiences. See more »

Loved it!
9 October 2008 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This movie took my breath away at some points, I simply loved it!

I admit that the character dialogs and storyline could have been done a bit better, but hey, this is just a simple (short) story of a couple of guys trying to slain a dragon, there's nothing more to it!

The overall design, atmosphere, the beautiful landscapes... it's all just magical!

They've put a lot of love in this movie. Character designs were great and funny. A bit Tim Burton-ish if you like. I can recommend this movie to anyone interested in great design, displayed in a simple small, but lovely story.
