DRAGONHEART (Theatrical Release USA 1996)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì

great story with tremendous potential—runs on average. The dragon is terrific but its ‘supporting’ cast doesn’t pull the weight that it does. The film lacks a basic honesty due to a script that needs an overhaul.

Maybe. It has good potential, but it seems to fail in acting.
