Storyline

Set in 411 AD, Pendragon tells the story of young Artos who is raised to believe that God has a purpose for each day. When his family is killed and he is taken into slavery by the Saxons, Artos questions his God. Advancing through the military ranks, Artos begins to understand that his father's vision was not based on the strength of man, but on the plan of God. Further betrayal by his friends forces Artos to decide between following God's plan unto certain death or abandoning God to save his own life. Written by Nathan Ashton

Adventure film with brave young men facing danger with courage and integrity.
8 July 2017 | by hailmary-42436See all my reviews

Fantasy/adventure is not my favorite type of film, but my children love it and so I watch it quite a bit. This being said, Pendragon does not deserve the reviews it has received on this site. This is a shame because I use IMDb as a guide to weed out poor-quality movies. After reading the reviews stating that the acting was inferior, the effects lame and the whole thing mismanaged, we almost did not watch the movie. Pendragon was great for its genre. The acting well-played, the scenes convincing, the effects stunning (sword fights well-done). The only reasons why someone might give this film a poor review are: religious objections to a movie that shows a society of faith, not atheism; artistic objections because the movie had no CGI- that is, the actors had to "act", do their own stunts, etc,... Or perhaps the poor reviewers simply prefer to be fed the drivel seeping out of Hollywood, instead of watching a real movie, with actors acting realistically to circumstances, and a real family making it happen. Excellent film. Please make more!
