Dragonslayer is a great fantasy film. The special effects hold up fairly well even today. The dragon is just a model and it looks fantastic. I was only 9 years old when I saw this film and it has stuck with me ever since. There are great performances and the direction is tight. The set design is also done well. Dragonslayer has a great atmosphere and you won’t forget the image of the dragon rising from the water behind our hero anytime soon.
Although I’m preaching to the choir here, I had to add my comments.
This movie is truly the reason why I came to love dragons and their caricatures, and have always judged dragon figures by the representation in this movie. All I can think to say is, `That’s just THE way a dragon is supposed to look!’ Although an older movie with dated special effects, Dragonslayer is a breathtaking feat of 80’s movies and a great job by good ol’ ILM.
I sat down to write this comment since I just watched the movie playing on television and enjoyed it yet again. Watching it again I noticed how very well sized the dragon was in every scene of the movie. Unlike the disappointing size-shifting Draco of Dragonheart done with much higher quality special effects, the dragon of Dragonslayer was well proportioned throughout the entire movie with marginal size differences. The dark atmosphere of the scenes were perfect for the movie, and I have to say that hiding the dragons features for a good portion of the movie was directing and editing beauty because it kept dragon enthusiasts on the edge of their seats writhing and thinking, `Let me see it!’
If you are a dragon enthusiast and haven’t seen this movie yet, you don’t know HOW badly you have missed out! And fantasy buffs should enjoy it for its detail and plot for setting up a medieval movie with sorcerers and dragons! A movie that IS the statement, `They don’t make ’em like they used to.’
