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.

In Spite of the Deficiencies, an Enjoyable Fantasy
17 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

Many years ago in the Kingdom of Vallon, Prince Lock killed his brother in a dispute for the throne and the realm was cursed and split in Delphi and Locklanders. Along the years, the Delphites and the Locklanders have been battling against each other in a civil war. When King Phillip of Lockland (Adrian Pitea) loses his only son in a battle against Prince Seth of Delphi (Jonathan LaPaglia) and Lockland is under siege of the Delphi army, he is convinced by the sorcerer Armand (Larry Drake) to give his royal blood to him to unleash the flying beast Gryphon to destroy the enemy. Princess Amelia (Amber Benson) opposes to the decision of her father and advises him that Armand is not trustful. The evil warlock uses the Gryphon to become the master of the kingdoms while Amelia and Seth join forces in a journey to search the Draconian Pike, the only weapon capable of defeating the Gryphon.

"Gryphon" is a TV movie with a restrained budget, poor special effects, average acting, some silly and corny lines and situations, but also an enjoyable fantasy underrated in IMDb with Amber "Tara" Benson in a lead role. I would never dare to compare or write that this film is a "Lord of the Rings" wannabe, as I glanced in one review, but the story is not bad and deserved better actors (or acting) in the key roles and improvements in the Gryphon. In the end, I found "Gryphon" entertaining and I do not regret of watching it on DVD. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "O Ataque do Gryphon" ("The Attack of the Gryphon")
