Storyline

In another world, there was an alliance of humanity and dragons. When the human began waging incessant war, the Dragons appointed a wizard as an immortal Dragon Ambassedor to mediate peace while most of the dragons withdrew into another reality. Generations later, the fragile peace was shattered by an attack on Prince Dev and Princess Kyra which is misconstrued as an abrogation of the peace by both. Years later, the now teenage warriors arrange for a personal duel to end the war, only to be interrupted by their parent's respective armies. In the ensuing battle, a third force of Orgens attack both forces and abduct the Kings. Now, both young warriors must go on a quest to rescue their fathers and bring about peace, unaware that there are hidden forces who have their own sinister agenda.

Not LotR but still an epic kids movie
26 January 2010 | by Jak RocSee all my reviews

I caught this movie on Cartoon Network one night 6 years ago, when I was 12 years old, and was hooked. I had always been a huge fan of dragons and could not take my eyes off the screen for 5 seconds, even through commercial breaks. Unfortunately I was called away to dinner just as the plot really picked up. I never got to see the movie to the end. So later I found it at blockbuster and purchased it instantly. That was money well spent.

Now, at 18 years old, I still enjoy this movie. The length is good enough to keep a child's attention and still serve the story with good pacing. The animation has a simple, unique 3D cell-shading style. The action scenes were very well animated, and not overly violent. All kids can enjoy a small dose of "Lord of the Rings" every now and then. Even though the whole animation looks a bit stiff sometimes it's not that important. I try not to let technical flaws like continuity or stiff motion gte in the way of the actual movie.

The acting is nothing Oscar-worthy. But at least its better than some other kids movies and TV shows out there with appalling acting (i.e. Care Bears, Nick Jr. shows...). There are some serious moments, but not that serious. There's is a good blend of comedy even during the action.

Mark Hildreth (Prince Dev) does a pretty good job of making a strong-hearted, yet impulsive, warrior with a smooth blend of some comic relief to brighten up the mood.

Chiara Zanni (Princess Kyra) is pretty much Mark's polar opposite. She has the same desires for peace but she has a more spicy attitude. Both their fathers do there parts well as the old "wise" veterans.

Mark Oliver (Xenos) plays the dragon ambassador between the two warring kingdoms. He does a good job at being a wise wizard of sorts while keeping certain secrets.

Some say the characters were predictable. Maybe the heroes but not the villain. Considering the audience, I don't think kids would pick up on the villain's hints of evil. As a kid when I say it for the first time I had no idea of the big plot twist in the middle. So for the sake of the plot, the acting is well served.

The concept of of two "rebellious teens" from warring factions seeking peace or unity has always intrigued me. The "Romeo and Juliet" style plot is always good to watch. It shows how people must stop looking at petty differences between cultures and unite together to defeat evil. Today that may never happen but I always keep hoping.

On the whole this is a good movie for kids, a very good movie for dragon fans, and a decent movie for everyone else.
