This movie was generally watchable as long as you kept in mind that it was a CHILDREN'S movie. Even so, I found some problems with it, and it certainly did not stack up to the original. First, the special effects were not quite as good as in the original. Second, the majority of the main characters were young, inexperienced, and naive. Only Goeff seemed to have some sort of interesting background, but he never elaborated on it. Lastly, the ending left much to be desired. At the last moment, the bad guy reveals a secret that was never even hinted at during the rest of the movie. The king is never shown to come out of his stupor. It's no surprise that the dragon saves the hero's life (that was telegraphed from the beginning). Nobody gets the girl (in fact, they never show her saying goodbye to the hero). All in all, the movie was a disappointment.

I can definitely say "Dragonheart: A New Beginning" is a kid's movie. I'mREALLY shocked that this film even got made, not because it was that bad oranything, but I just can't imagine that there is much of a demand for thiskind of movie. But, I guess it got made somehow. There are a some coolthings in this film, but nothing really great.
You can't talk about this movie without mentioning the special effectsbecause the whole movie is a special effect. The Dragon looked ok, butquite cartoony at times. The special effects in the first installment blowaway the special effects in this one, but they're still kind of cool attimes.
The story is ok, but again, nothing spectacular. The story is a littlethin, but for a kid's movie that's kind of typical. The characters aren'tanything terribly interesting or great, but they're cool I guess. I hadnever heard of any of the actors, but they all seemed to do an okjob.
All in all, this is an ok film, but definitely not anything to go out ofyour way to see. If you REALLY liked "Dragonheart", then you'll probablywant to see this film. But even then, it depends on WHY you liked"Dragonheart", if you liked the film for it's incredible special effectsonly, then you probably won't like "Dragonheart: A New Beginning". On theother hand if you liked "Dragonheart" for it's story, then you may like thisfilm. Anyhow, I hope you like the film, and thanks forreading,
Well, given that the first Dragonheart was no Citizen Kane - heck, it wasn't even an Excalibur in itself - my expectations were low for this movie. And those expectations were met in full. Dragonheart: ANB builds on the contrivances of the first and offers its own; now there's a new semi-evil ruler guy (you'll love his beginning speech decreeing that citizens must always speak the truth), a new convenient dragon (whose 'ice lung' ability is just a little too powerful) and a wimpy hero who learns to deal between the two, sort of.
One of the more humorous things about ANB is its unnatural PG rating, which means swordfights and such must be bloodless. It makes many of the fight scenes more laughable than they are naturally, which is considerable already. And it gives no particular creedence to the inevitable dragon-heart-changing-sequence, which you know must be coming - you just don't quite know where. Sigh. I shouldn't waste much more time on this. It's a fun dumb movie, but don't expect much more from it. At least they didn't contrive a romance between the hero and the 'foreigner' bodyguard, who is quite clearly female but at whom every character seems surprised to discover this fact.
