Our Score
Over the years, Sean Connery has played a Turkish warrior, an Irish cop, a Russian submarine commander and 007 - all with the same Scottish accent. Here he lends his distinctive burr to Draco, a tenth-century dragon who joins forces with an itinerant knight (Dennis Quaid). The result is a likeable, if slightly over-eager, mix of derring-do and special effects, which has everything from wicked kings and poetic monks to romantic encounters and revolting peasants. Quaid gives a rousing performance, while Pete Postlethwaite is charmingly awkward as a religious wayfarer with a penchant for rhyming couplets. As the dastardly despot, however, David Thewlis belongs in a pantomime.

Summary

A knight sets out to slay a dragon, only to find the unhappy creature is the last of its kind. Forging an unlikely alliance, the pair embark on a mission to rid their kingdom of its tyrannical ruler. Fantasy adventure, starring Dennis Quaid, David Thewlis, Pete Postlethwaite and Julie Christie, with the voice of Sean Connery.
