The land of Altera has observed an uneasy peace for years among Humans, Elves and Evil beasts who are loyal to the legendary Black Dragon. But the Black Dragon begins to stir from its hibernation, sending the Beasts marching across Altera. With a beast conquest perilously close, a small group of Humans and Elves unite to try to find a secret hidden road to the Black Dragon's cave and destroy it. But the fate of all of them may be in the hands of the young warrior Lambert, who must summon the confidence and skill to face the Black Dragon himself just when all may be lost.

Do not believe the negative reviews! This is a Gem!
11 January 2016 | by magali-bassalerSee all my reviews

Practical first For Parents: I watched it with my kid, and I enjoyed it as much as him. Might be a bit dark for young impressionable kids, but there isn't much gore per se, no blood, but lots of battle violence.

Dragon Nest: Warriors Dawn, was overall, a wonderful production. I am your average person who really enjoys movies, animation, gaming, and mythology. I am a fan of D&D type games and story and this movie feels exactly like this! I had to write this because so many reviews were very unfair. There is no way in the world this movie deserves anything under 6, if you are being overly critical. The Movie "The Apocalypse 2007" deserves a 1/10 or 2/10 if you're being generous... just saying. Please be fair in your ratings.

This title has good sound effect, Great animation, Good voice acting, very cool, familiar Character types: ( light and dark elves, sorcerers, barbarians, rogues, etc), humour, drama, everything that makes a story interesting and engaging. GREAT MUSIC, by that I mean: subtle, timeless, classical instrument based that sets the tone for every scene and emotion, it's always there but it never interferes with the story, very little pop, in other words... well done!

Also, Can I just say that if you are a fan of any fantasy lore, D&D base games, anime or video games, you will LOVE this. Yes this is inspired from various fantasy lore, games and/or actual folklore, but people should realize that Tolkien did not invent fairy/ Elven/ Fantasy lore... Come on. Neither does Final Fantasy games own all rights to fantasy/ Magic animations. It's not a rip off of Wow (if anything, WOW is a ripoff of so many things of pop culture)

Too many over critical people not appreciating it for what it is. Honestly, there are not enough animations like this! So much fun to watch. It is not completely original in it's genre but this does not make the beautiful animation, fun action combat scenes, silliness, drama, adorable characters any less good.

Looking forward to the sequel in the summer of 2016!
