Dawn of the Dragonslayer
1 February 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

When a movie makes me forget that I am watching a movie I say the movie is good. While watching at many movies with lots of big names and marketing and everything made according to the big budget that was put on the table, I din t feel absorbed into the story like I was absorbed by this so "low IMDb rated" movie.

Everything in this movie was done with so much heart, and so much passion, every scene and dialogue was carefully studied and the final result was a small masterpiece. All my respect for all the actors, director, writers and everything else involved in creating this film, most of them with almost no previous experience in film industry. This movie delivers in terms of feeling, 10 times more than most of the big budget dragon movies I saw. With exactly the same cast, storyline and the same team but with little more money, this movies would have been a cinema success.

In the end I would like to say to the harsh critics to learn to appreciate a movie for what it is and to not bash it because it is not a Lord of the Rings or a Gladiator.

ps: I see now that years ago I gave Eragorn 1 rating on IMDb, while I give 10 to this movie for this very pleasant surprise it offered me.
