Do not believe the negative reviews! This is a Gem!

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!

All RPG clichés from last decade cramped into one viewing

Building a movie from online multiplayer games is not easy. These games are known for social interaction or accessible gameplay, not strong narrative. Dragon Nest animation resorts to utilizing mediocre antics from many other games or movies, then put it in one predictable story and weak animation. It's a dull journey and what few sparks it has, mainly from vista or music, can't save it from mediocrity.

Story is very basic, cue in your typical hero-in-training, alliance with other race, some comedy reliefs and potential romantic angle, then you'll have the 101 good versus evil plot. It's a dreary development with just about everything one would expect not to see again in fantasy genre. Granted, this sort of plot has been used many times and it can be to great effect, but Dragon Nest merely stacks them without novelty and hope for the best.

Animation isn't its strong suit, the visual looks pedestrian as though it's from last gen video games. Sometimes the audio sounds out of place as the mixing stutters on some parts, dubbing is the usual sloppy mess, especially for supporting chars. There's a bit inconsistency with details as well, shadows or texture don't sync well into the scenes. Frankly, these kinds of problems shouldn't happen on feature length animation of today's technology.

If there are some redeeming parts, they are the decent soundtracks and design for the world. They manages to draw that fresh fantasy vibe, although much too briefly before the average animation kicks in again. Watching Dragon Nest offers the same level of excitement as grinding in online game, low at best.

clichés everywhere.

I got to admit, except for the protagonist's face (which is ugly even by animation standards), everything blends in nicely. But that's only for the animation part. I'll start with the protagonist introduction: it shows him sleeping when he should be guarding, probably, or he was just having some time off in the woods. From here we see that he's not quite the smart or fighter type. Next we see his agility and parkour skills, that seem to be similar to an elf's, which seems to be his strong point (until the final fight where he miraculously achieves great fighting skills to match the human king's second favorite, but let's leave that for later). We even see him almost catch an elf, and then a fight scene with some monsters, where he seems to have mediocre fighting skills (he only get's to resist because of his agility). Some time later, after the ship and the cemetery thing, we get to see the so called 'chemistry' between the protagonist and the cute elf girl. How we reached this point within a week or so, when they barely seemed to talk on-screen and neither of them managed to catch the other's attention, I really don't know. After the girl's death during the last fight, the protagonist seems to have acquired amazing fighting skills and the ability to control his mystic sword (which we only get to see a glimpse of while it's made in the forge). The cliché of 'I must protect my loved ones' is very strong. I almost laughed when he disarmed the second antagonist and the antagonist admitted that 'he had good fighting skills'. Until 10 minutes ago he was barely surviving! Also, no character development, except maybe for the antagonist at the end. Other clichés: 1. Highborn smaller brother is envious of bigger brother and falls into darkness. Checked. 2. Two opposite gender characters who have stupid fights(the protagonist and the elf) will be the movie couple(s). Checked. 3. "Evil will continue" ending. Checked. 4. Protagonist gets saved at the last moment just before he could die by mysterious force, character, or an appearance that nobody expected. Checked. 5. "Evil is too strong, we must make an alliance" intro. Checked. 6. Stupid protagonist with very high amount of power. Checked. 7. Safe way to go back home after the main fight ended. Checked. 8. Antagonist turning to the good side at the end. Checked. And waaay too many more.

I forgot to mention, how did the dark elf girl get the crystal so fast? even if she was waiting at the bottom of the cliff, it would take a couple hours to come back from that, yet she managed to go, get it, come back and stand on a mountain for dramatic ending in about 30 minutes in-movie time.

The only reason I gave it 3 stars was because of the animation, the dragon-human duo had an interesting personality, and the last line of the dark elf.
