PG-13

Dragonheart is a 1996 fantasy film. Bowen (Dennis Quaid) is a knight and dragon slayer. He trains with young Prince Einon (Lee Oakes) hoping to keep the prince fair and chivalrous, not tyrannical like his father, the king. One day there is a battle, that kills the king and wounds Einon, who is on the verge of death. Queen Aislinn (Julie Christie) knows of only one way to save Einon's life. She takes her son to the dragon, Draco (Sean Connery) and asks for help. Draco takes part of his own dragon heart and puts it in Einon, saving his life. In return the queen promises Draco that when Einon is king he will rule justly. As time passes, Bowen and Draco form a friendship and travel the country. Returning to Einon's kingdom they learn that the king is an unjust and evil ruler. King Einon has forgotten the training that Bowen gave him as a child, and the heart from Draco that saved his life. Bowen and Draco make a plan to change the king's evil ways.

    It could be a touching story, but somehow, the film fails to show that. It has the full potential to be a good fantasy film - and at times is succeeds - but most of the time it leaves you a bit disappointed. The interaction between the Dragon and Bowen is great, at times bittersweet and hostile despite the respect and understanding that grows between the two.
