Battle dragons vs. humans beings in the Dark Ages with excessive use computer generator
This silly but entertaining B-grade movie tells about some fire-breathing , meteoric dragons emerge from the space and hurtling toward earth begin setting fire to everything , establishing dominance over world and land in Carpathia ,1410 . After destruction his castle , the king Fastrad ( a tyrannical villain well played by John Rhys Davies ), along with his underling (Tony Amendola) are going to shelter at castle of Wenesbury ruled by a good king ( Hansson ) . They meet a hunter archer named Silas ( Maxwell Caufield ) lead them to the castle . There , the hunter is taken prisoner . One time is freed , Silas team up and band together with the king's daughter ( Angela Boris , a Playboy girl), an Asian fighter named Ling ( W.Park ), a woman warrior ,among others and helped by a large crossbow , confronting the weird dragons monsters . They suddenly find themselves the only people can save the kingdom battling the giant dragons .
This is an amazing story that attempts at creating a glimmer fantasy but is compromised by borrowing elements from ¨ Dragonheart , Dragon slayer and Reign of fire ¨, and other latter day movies and belonging to Dragons sub-genre. Film blends adventures, intrigue , battles , exciting action with convincingly computer generator FX , bringing the dragons to the life and is quite entertaining . Work on dragons made by CG sometimes seem authentic, but is also noted its computer realization . The only thing that let it down from this perspective , was that some of the parts in between the dragons fighting were a little dull . It's a moderate success accounting for seeing a direct for video. The picture is produced by Philiph J. Roth, he usually manages his films to write , produce , music and direct and still make them funny , thoughtful and most all highly amusing ,he currently resides in Sofia, Bulgaria and owns a film studio where has been filmed this one . The motion picture is professionally directed by Stephen Furst , he maximize efficiency of movements and shot , he's a habitual secondary actor ( Babylone 5 ) and newcomer as director . It's a bemusing film but is specifically appointed to young people, in spite of a brief nudism scenes. Rating : Passable and entertaining.
