Medieval Dunark's ruling family is murdered and the heir found with a bloody dagger. As the witch Shamer can't shame the heir to admit, the Shamer's daughter is fetched, as she, too, can make people see their shameful acts.
The Shamer's daughter, Dina, has unwillingly inherited her mother's supernatural ability. She can look straight into the soul of other people, making them feel ashamed of themselves. When the sole heir to the throne is wrongfully accused of the horrible murders of his family, Dina's mother is lured to Dunark under false pretenses to make him confess. Neglecting to use her ability for the wrong purposes, she is taken prisoner. It is now up to Dina to uncover the truth of the murders, but soon she finds herself whirled into a dangerous power struggle with her own life at risk. In a semi realistic medieval fantasy world with Dragons and Witchcraft, Dina and her family are thrown into the adventure of a lifetime in order to put the rightful heir to the Kingdom of Dunark on the Throne.Written by
Not having read the books, the only reason i watched this was that I seemed to recall some 5 star reviews when it came out. I Wonder compared to what !!! The 4 stars are for the settings and effects. The acting is better left unmentioned. Some of the child actors actually seems to be doing better than the adults. It's possible in all fairness that they had severe problems with taking the dialogue seriously. The lines they get seems very stiff and pathetic. The Drakan character is especially ridiculous. So OK, this is a children's movie but the Harry Potter series proved that it's possible to make a movie that can also be enjoyed by adults. Oh and those overgrown lizards passing for dragons. Lol what can I say ?
