-Dragonheart 3: The Sorcerer's Curse (2015) movie review: -Dragonheart-ish 3: The Sorcerer's Curse is a prequel (I think) to the original cult-classic Dragonheart, whose legacy really died with Dragonheart 2 . Anyway, in this rip-off, we follow an unrealistically good looking squire who, after rejected from knight school, goes over Hadrian's Wall to find a meteor, only to discover a dragon inside. But when the male dragon's eggs are stolen by a sorcerer, he, the dragon, a random loser in a robe, and epic Merida from Brave must work together to stop the sorcerer from using the eggs to hatch dragons to attack the wall and free his people. Yup. I'm not done! One subplot includes Merida and the loser monk-ish guy wanting to help their own people beat the kinda evil knights at the wall to set their people free. So they want the same things as the villain. Who also makes the dragon useless through most of the film. This. This is why I said Dragonheart-ish.
-As you can tell, I did not like this film. It is okay though, Syfy will love it.
-The story is dumb. Aaaand it makes no sense. And it is inconsistent. And it doesn't tie into the other films. Also medieval knights at Hadrian's Wall. Fighting Woads and Druids. With a dragon. A medieval dragon. The writer failed history. Every history. Ever.
-The pace was not good, because nothing happens much. Also the dragon is barely in it.
-Ben Kingsley voices the dragon. Huh. I have no idea how they got an Oscar winning actor to do that. Also the rest of the cast barely tries.
-The characters are inconsistent, unmotivated, and unlikable. Even the dragon. Who doesn't use fire to beat his enemies. Instead he just flies around. And does nothing.
-The music was mostly lame. Some fun Celtic music played during a tense fight, which made it awkwardly funny. Also playing the original Dragonheart theme does NOT earn them points in a film this bad.
-The effects were just as good as the original! The only problem was that they did not update them in 30 years .
-Like everything in this is bad. From costumes to lack of blood or inconsistent everything. Video game quests and no driving force behind anything. Dragons are also aliens now? Whatever. Dragonheart-ish 3 is already on Netflix, but that doesn't matter, because Dragonheart-ish 3 is not worth seeing. Ever!
