When someone asks me, as they often do, "Wayne, who enjoys the movie DragonHeart?", I always respond with the same answer: "Anyone with eyes to see, anyone with feelings to feel".

The film stars Dennis Quaid (Independent Spirit award winner for best supporting actor in 2002's Far From Heaven) as the protagonist named Bowen.

Bowen Quaid works with the world's last surviving dragon, Draco (voiced by Sean Connery) to stop an evil Prince from taking over the world.

As a reviewer I like to avoid spoilers at all cost, but trust me when I say, If you love dragons you will adore this little movie.

Everyone who knows me, knows I love dragons. Favorite band? Imagination Dragons. Favorite shirt? A blue shirt with a dragon on it that my mum bought me last year. Favorite color? Dragon red. Favorite member of Ruff Ryders that isn’t DMX? Drag-on Favorite way to get a heavy object into my house? Drag - in Favorite physician? Dr. Agon

I could go on and on.

I say this because it's important for you to know that I'm a bit biased when it comes to the film DragonHeart. Is it a good movie? No. Does it hold up after all these years? No. Should you watch it? No. Does it have Dragons? Yes!

So there you have it. If you weren't convinced enough already, maybe this quote from the film will help you understand the underlying beauty

Gilburt of Glockenspur: "AAAAHHH WE'RE DYING, WE'RE GOING TO DIE!"

Bowen of House Quaid: "No, brother Gilburt, We aren't dying. We're flying."
