Synopsis

In this thrilling fantasy adventure, a sorcerer’s apprentice named Galen (Peter MacNichol) faces his biggest battle yet: A fire-breathing dragon wreaking havoc in the village and destroying everything in its wake. Does Galen have what it takes to save the citizens of the land? Or is he still a novice, unable to unleash the magic and wizardry the job requires?

Dove Review

This is a fantasy that has all the ingredients of a good story: knights, ladies in distress, wizards, and dragons. It may have been good in its time, but to me it needed something more. The lighting was dark, and dialog a bit monotoned but the dragon looked real. Plus, this film is rated PG and there was quite a lot of graphic gore, violence and even nudity.

Due to the nudity and gore this movie cannot be awarded the Dove Seal.
