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 »

Not nearly as good as Dragonheart, but an ok film.
10 June 2002 | by LebowskiT1000See all my reviews

I can definitely say "Dragonheart: A New Beginning" is a kid's movie. I'm REALLY shocked that this film even got made, not because it was that bad or anything, but I just can't imagine that there is much of a demand for this kind of movie. But, I guess it got made somehow. There are a some cool things in this film, but nothing really great.

You can't talk about this movie without mentioning the special effects because the whole movie is a special effect. The Dragon looked ok, but quite cartoony at times. The special effects in the first installment blow away the special effects in this one, but they're still kind of cool at times.

The story is ok, but again, nothing spectacular. The story is a little thin, but for a kid's movie that's kind of typical. The characters aren't anything terribly interesting or great, but they're cool I guess. I had never heard of any of the actors, but they all seemed to do an ok job.

All in all, this is an ok film, but definitely not anything to go out of your way to see. If you REALLY liked "Dragonheart", then you'll probably want to see this film. But even then, it depends on WHY you liked "Dragonheart", if you liked the film for it's incredible special effects only, then you probably won't like "Dragonheart: A New Beginning". On the other hand if you liked "Dragonheart" for it's story, then you may like this film. Anyhow, I hope you like the film, and thanks for reading,
