Not bad at all

Yes, probably nothing will compare to the first Dragonheart but this was a good attempt and, in most part, stayed true to the spirit and theme of the original.

A few things could have made this sequel even better - better development of the relationship between Gareth and Drago, use of the original name "Draco" (or was there some copyright issue?) and a more convincing performance from Gareth awakening to the Old Code.

It was great, though, that the original theme music was kept because for us who "grew up" with Dragonheart (though I'm over 65), the music speaks of the valor and virtue of the spirit of knighthood in Dragonheart.

I would have liked to see the return of Draco with memories of the past (perhaps, again, copyright issues?) that plays into the plot. I was rather disappointed to see the new Drago as completely new and there was no explanation why he landed on the earth as a shooting star with dragon eggs to boot. I guess it boils down to dragon's having to be born on this earth and not in the stars.

I was also disappointed that the new Drago could not speak until he gave away half his heart to Gareth. I was expecting (and hoping) to hear a voice closely resembling that of Sean Connery to come out from Drago. When he did speak, I was a bit disappointed but mostly relieved. It was only at the end credits that I knew it was Ben Kingsley. I feel the script writers could have done a better job on Drago's part as the original Draco exhibited more wisdom as that of a dragon who had experienced and seen much over hundreds of years. Despite this, there were parts where Drago's words elicited the emotions and messages of old from the first Dragonheart.

Overall, I enjoyed this sequel, especially the second half, where I sensed the script writers warmed up, so to say, and brought more and more of the magic of the first Dragonheart into play. The orchestral arrangement of the Dragonheart theme was wonderful in the final credits with the short scene at the end a nice touch. I liked, too, the detail put into Drago, though, at times (particularly at the beginning), he was a bit too evil-looking.

Unlike, perhaps, some other viewers, the "death" of Draco in the first Dragonheart did not leave me sad. He only transmuted into a more elevated living presence among the stars. This sequel's ending left me wondering if the producers were entertaining a sequel. I'm hoping there is - mainly to preserve and pass on to younger generations the spirit and lessons of the heart (no pun intended) of Dragonheart.

The problem with sequels is they are always compared with the original and also, too often with sequels, the writers try a completely different angle which only loses the magic of the first one. However, I can breathe a sigh of relief that the main story theme was kept here (as well as the characters in somewhat different guises).

How can one preserve the Dragonheart theme if another sequel is to be made? The one thing to keep in mind is not to change Draco (or Drago) and neither the (eventual) hero. Settings and even the time-line can change but keep the theme of the triumph of honor, valor and virtue true and fast.

How about a Dragonheart in the 21st century? This would really test the script writer as, I believe a lot of people will agree, the Old Code is pretty much lost in these times.

So, can, and should, the Old Code live on in this digital age?

Love all things DragonHeart

I think we all know that nothing will ever compare to the original DragonHeart and Draco will always be the best dragon of all time, but I really enjoyed this sequel. Much better than the second(though I still enjoyed that one as a kiddo). Its a little cheesy, but I still loved it. I might just be a huge DragonHeart nerd. I liked the story line, I think they put more thought into it this time around. It was a fun adventure and the effects of the curse were very interesting! I enjoyed most of the characters. I feel it must be a requirement of the DragonHeart movies to have an annoying monk ha but they all grow on you. I think Drago and Gareth were fantastic. This is a fun new chapter to the wonderful story that we have known and loved for almost 20 years.

Dragon Heart Franchise Officially Overdone

Dragonheart joins the rest of the plethora of movies that churn out a third movie to rake in the last few dollars before the idea is officially overdone and dead. This movie, like most franchises when they reach the third movie resembles that watered down concepts from the first movie. The first Dragon heart was fresh original and great. In these days for the movie to be great there has to be more than just fancy CGI.

This movie is let down my poor, lame acting. The characters all fulfilled their one=dimensional scripts.

It seems the directors had to highlight parts that are meant to be funny by adding a Irish jig to the soundtrack in some random places.

The bad guys are just plain evil for no reason than to be evil.

And the dragon.....come one peps this is meant to be focusing on the Dragon relationship with the lead character but instead he seems to pop in and out of the story like some lost little puppy. He seems tough and is willing to take lives at the start of the movie then he just flys around looking scary later on. The morals in this movie are a mess.

Ultimately now days there are better entertainment experiences with dragons to be had in games so I think I will stick to Skyrim.
