Storyline

In a far-away mystical land, two kingdoms, the Delphi and the Lockland, have been raging a civil war for nearly 300 years. With the death of his only son in battle, King Philip of Lockland has his daughter Amelia take over command of the Lockland armies against the invading Delphi, led by Prince Seth. In desperation, Philip turns to the warlock Armand to summoned the Gryphon, a giant flying lizard/lion hybrid to destroy the Delphi armies. But Armand has other plans and plots to take over both Delphi and Lockland kingdoms for himself and his two evil brides. Amelia is forced to team up with Seth to search for a mystical weapon that can kill the Gryphon, leading to the two enemy groups on a odyssey quest to find the weapon, called the Drakonian Pike, before Armand finds it to use for his own evil schemes.

Good for a laugh, and that's about it.
27 January 2007 | by chrisbeaverSee all my reviews

My goodness. I just finished watching this on the SciFi Channel, and it's everything I thought it would be. Everything about the gryphon, from concept design all the way up the pipeline to rendering & compositing, is sub-par. Everything about the story is asinine; it feels like the random result of a D&D match between the scriptwriters. Even the props and costumes are silly; the majestic Lance of Whatever the evil sorcerer spent the whole movie fondling looked like a claw hammer covered in gold leaf in several shots.

And the acting! Half the cast obviously drew inspiration for their roles by watching Lord of the Rings a few times, and the other half just didn't care. Evil Sorcerer Guy, for example -- I have never in my life seen a man so bored as that actor was in the final scene! He never did really attain the point of being an imposing presence. More than anything, he reminded me of one of the recurring characters on Food Network's Good Eats, so much so in fact I've been hunting around trying to see if it's the same actor.

All that said, it's good for watching on a Saturday night with a few buddies, especially if there's beer involved. If it had taken itself a little less seriously, it actually could've made for a really fun epic-film parody. In its current state, unfortunately, I can only recommend one viewing -- And that's if you're a fan of cheese-ball movies.
