I stumbled upon this 2021 movie from writers Scott Jeffrey and Rhys Waterfield by random chance. And I must admit that the movie's cover looked interesting and the fact that it was a movie with dragons definitely helped to win me over. And also the fact that the movie actually had a rating of 5,6 at the time I found it, was enough to make me want to sit down and watch "Dragon Fury".
First of all, the movie's cover (or poster) is over-selling the movie by several miles. The dragon portrayed on the cover is far more impressive-looking than the abysmal CGI mutants that passed as dragons in the movie. It was such an eyesore to look at those horrible rendered and poorly made CGI dragon creatures in the movie. It was just downright laughable.
Then there was the thing about the storyline itself. Which was about as interesting as watching wet cardboard. It just baffled me that two writers could collectively manage to come up with something so uninteresting and with such a general lack of entertainment. So you shouldn't get your hopes up for "Dragon Fury" when you sit down to watch it. I did, given the movie's rating at that time, so I was sorely disappointed.
The acting in "Dragon Fury" was all over the place. And by that I mean that some of the actors and actresses were actually putting on fair enough performances, while others were just wooden and dull. So you are definitely in for a mixed treat of acting performances when you sit down to watch "Dragon Fury". But with a script and storyline as lacking as the writers managed to produce, then it was interesting that some actors and actresses actually managed to get something worthwhile out of it and into their performances.
I have already covered the dragon, but I have to mention it again. It was so bad. Even my 11 year old son was commenting on how fake and horrible it looked. Believe you me, the dragon in the movie looks like something taken inspiration from a 5 year old's drawing during Fantasy Week in kindergarten.
If you sit down to watch "Dragon Fury", hoping it would something akin to "Reign of Fire" for example, you will be sorely disappointed.
My rating of director Scott Jeffrey's "Dragon Fury" lands on a two out of ten stars. The movie came and went without much of any ruckus, and it is a movie that I can now say I have seen, but it is also a movie that I will never ever return to watch a second time. Nor is it a movie that I would recommend you waste your money, time or effort on; some of us did, so you don't have to.
