Dragonheart? Reign of Fire? Pee-yew! Vermithrax perjorative reigns. Awe inspiring dragon and Peter MacNichol is perfectly cast.... as a boob. Never bought Caitlin Clarke as a boy: you can't have everything. But anyone over, well, sixty, will recognize Ralph Richardson as a welcome presence wherever he deposited himself, like his turn as the Supreme Being in Time Bandits.

I watched this because I'm a fan of 80s fantasy movies ("Willow," Labyrinth," "Ladyhawke") and because I heard this one of the best screen dragons. And he is pretty cool in a pre-digital, Ray Harryhausen way. Too bad the story is a little half-assed and sometimes plays as unfunny Monty Python. Peter MacNicol, in his debut, is badly miscast, Ralph Richardson chews some scenery, Caitlin Clakre is more spunky than your average heroine and future Emperor Palpatine Ian MacDiarmid has a small role. Worth it for the dragon, the scenery and the effects. Also see "Dragonheart" and "Reign of Fire."

Very nice fantasy made at a time when the story counted for more than the special effects.
