THE PLOT:

The remains of a dragon has been discovered deep with a undiscovered cave somewhere in England. A group of Soldiers and scientists have arrived to clone the dragon for unknown reasons.

But the fire breathing menace has escaped and is running amok within the cavern base and it's up to a army Captain and a Doctor to send it back to history.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

I got to admit, the movie wasn't all bad. The dragon was a cool design and the plot is classic Jurassic Park territory. But this movie is far from perfect. Like somebody didn't do their research about gun power. It wasn't around in the 12th century. Second, the split screens that they thought would make it more interesting only made it annoying. Lastly, the dragons may not be human, but it doesn't automatically make them monsters either. Why do dragon always have to be the bad guys in these movies? Poor Dean Cain from Superman to stooge in b-movies. He's better then the roles he's been in as of late. Let's hope someone picks him for something better and let's hope there isn't a DRAGON FIGHTER 2. A mere 6 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I am sorry, but as per the norm with these movies I feel that Zedd is being too generous. I mean, Gunpowder in the twelve century, please! And the split screens were more then just a little annoying, it was a lot annoying. 2 STARS!

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ STORY (The story kind of works.)
+ DRAGON DESIGN (The dragon is cool.)
+ DEAN CAIN (Better then this movie deserves.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- CGI EFFECTS (The matting could have been better.)
- SPLIT SCREENS (The split screen got annoying fast.)
- HISTORICAL GOOF (They didn't have gunpowder in the 12th Century.)

...AND FINALLY...

- EVIL DRAGONS (Once again dragons are evil.)
