Did You Know?

Jason Isaacs played Lucius Malfoy, father of Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter movies. In this movie, the dragon is named Draco, and Isaacs plays Lord Felton. Tom Felton is the actor who plays Draco Malfoy.

Revealing mistakes: At the beginning of the movie, when the king sets fire to the peasant's house, you can actually see the other side of the roof catching fire prematurely.

Draco: [chained down, bitterly] I cannot *see*! Are the stars shining tonight?
Queen Aislinn: Brightly, my lord. Brightly.
Draco: Then let us end it.

User Review

An entirely enjoyable movie by any standards!

Rating: 10/10

Dragonheart is, in my humble opinion, one of the best-ever dragon movies I have seen. And believe me, I have seen a lot of them. Most are poorly made with lagging stories and characters you cannot get into. I found that was not the case for Dragonheart. Draco, the dragon, was in my opinion a gorgeous creature and it didn't make it worse that he sounded like Sean Connery. :) Dennis Quaid is always enjoyable, a gorgeous man with an infectious smile. Dina Meyer is lovely as Kara. So what if some of the plot is not 'believable'. It's a fairytale. Anything goes in fairy tales. Heck, that's what fairy tales are all about. Fantasy, imagination. So, when and if you watch/re-watch this movie, do so with an open heart and suspend your disbelief and analytical minds. This is fantasy in the truest sense.
