Synopsis: Prince Einen is impaled through the heart and his only hope is to receive half a heart from a nearby dragon. When Einen turns corrupt and vicious, his old teacher, Bowen, swears revenge on the dragon who shared his heart with the boy.

Reaction: Not a tremendously deep story but it has some good action and the special effects are top notch.

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • More than 200 photos were taken of Sean Connery with a variety of facial expressions, and along with footage of his voice recording, were used to make the dragon bear a stronger resemblance to him.
  • The five dragonslayers' names are Uhlric, Cavan, Ivor, Tavis, and Trahern, according to the novelization of the film by Charles Edward Pogue. Also, despite playing a pretty important role in the story, none of the dragonslayers or the actors that played them are listed in the credits.
  • Excerpts from the music score have been used in dozens of movie trailers and even for a special projection at the 1997 Oscars. The main theme was also used as interstitial/credits music during the U.S. telecast of the 2004 Olympics.
