The film excels as a visual exercise, as a study in adolescent psychology, and even as astute political analysis. Full Review

A really solid fun fantasy story that I think holds up quite well. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- It doesn't take itself too seriously and benefits from a good cast that includes Ralph Richardson and John Hallam. The effects aren't bad either. Full Review

An innocent adventure that's technically slick and lacking in pretense, this film should provide a nice scare for kids, and maybe a few of the grown-ups too. Full Review

Verges on the nasty for the nippers; sails close to déjà vu for fantasy fans; fated, probably, to damnation by faint praise. Full Review

This movie has two big things going for it -- the dragon and the man who masterminds its slaying. Full Review

Rating: 5/5 -- If there was one film from the 1970s/80s early heyday of fantasy films that perfectly straddled the divide between kiddie movies and gorefests, it was Dragonslayer. Full Review

Product Description:

A ferocious firebreathing dragon terrorizes the sixth-century English countryside, but the kingdom of Urland is strangely at ease--the king has made an evil pact with the dragon, offering to sacrifice virgins twice a year in exchange for peace. The unfortunate victims are culled from the kingdom's poorer families, but when the king's own daughter is next in line, a powerful wizard (Sir Ralph Richardson) and his youthful apprentice (Ally McBeal's Peter MacNicol) are called in to slay the dragon using their arsenal of magic and sorcery. Blending moody atmosphere, realistic set design, stunning battle sequences, and an absolutely terrifying dragon, DRAGONSLAYER stands out as the best of all the 1980s dragon films.
