Mine: Very forgettable. Connery is kind of fun as the dragons voice, but the story is slow and uninteresting. Dialog flat. Still the effects are pretty good.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Highly unusual fable about a knight ``of the old school'' (in the 1st century A. D. ) whose youthful king turns evil after having his life saved by a dragon who gives him half of his heart. Years later, the knight befriends that same dragon and joins with him to vanquish the cruel king. Unlikely premise is made plausible by Quaid's persuasive performance and the commanding presence of Connery as Drago (matched by the creature's superior, state-of-the-art digital animation). Fine score by Randy Edelman. Panavision.

Forgettable?! Nah! This is one of the finest in the fantasy genre. This was probably made to please both the mainstream crowd and fans of the fantasy genre. The performances are quite good, especially Dennis Quaid and Sean Connery (albeit only his voice of the dragon). The only performance that doesn't stand out is Dina Meyer. The script's good, if not perfect, but it's enough to please anyone. The dragon effects are a standout as well. I also recommend watching Dragonslayer as well.
