When aspiring knight Gareth goes in search of a fallen comet rumored to contain gold, he is shocked to instead find a set of dragon eggs guarded by dragon Drago. After Drago saves Gareth's life the two become intricately bonded, and must work together to defeat an evil sorcerer and stop his reign of terror. Along the way, Gareth learns the true meaning of being a knight in this fantasy action-adventure for the ages.
"Dragonheart 3: The Sourcerer's Curse" is a fun fantasy movie with brilliant action sequences and just enough story to keep most viewers entertained. The film is immediately better than its "A New Beginning" predecessor and is a decent sequel to the original, incorporating enough of the lore and original score to make any fan geek out for a moment.
The film starts out at a brilliant pace, but is held back by some really glossy character development towards the middle, but is ultimately redeemed by its final action set piece and good casting choices. It is not clear where the film takes place in the time-line, but it seems to take place decades or even a century or two before the first film on the series.
The ending sets up the now confirmed "Dragonheart 4" which will be a great film if Universal can continue and/or improve the the quality.
Most of the people giving this film a low rating have not even seen the film and are a disgrace to critics everywhere.
