Dragonheart: A New Beginning (2000)
Nostalgic, but mostly for the kids
I was saddened by such a low score on this film when I looked it up. Obviously it doesn't hold a finger to the original, but it's not terrible. I've seen much worse.
I saw this when I was 11 or 12 and really enjoyed it. I was at the time (and still am) a huge fan of the first film. I felt this one wasn't trying to match it though but more or less show the story to a much younger audience.
The acting was decent over all, not anything special but not terrible. I liked Chris Masterson as a young orphaned stable boy. As a kid I could relate to him because of his desire to fight and become a knight but not being able to.
Over all the effects are not great, but it was basically done on a TV budget. The dialog wasn't really that good, but it didn't bother me like other films have.
I think this is a great companion to the first one in the fact that it can re illustrate the power of kindness and love to children. Don't expect the original film, but sit down with your children and have some fun with them!
