Merlin and the War of the Dragons is an Asylum take on the King Arthur legend and as Asylum films goes this is not bad although it is kind of dull in a lot of places. Merlin is played here by Simon Lloyd-Roberts and he does not do a bad job at it. The action sequences are only barely adequate here and so are the dragons presented here. Merlin and the War of the Dragons was filmed in Wales and this movie certainly makes good use of its filming location. The best part of this movie is Jurgen Prochnow in his very sincere performance as The Mage a performance in which he certainly believes in playing the character to his full effect. The end of this movie indicated a sequel but no such sequel was ever made and I would have been curious to see where this story would have gone on from here.
