Adventures of a Teenage Dragonslayer Reviews
The script was not special in any way, shape or form and showed exactly what can go wrong with indie film making. Unlike what some reviews say, the acting is not poor, it was mediocre - nothing amazing, but not really bad. What suprised me the most was that a scene very resemblent of the first Saw film featured, yet it remained a PG! There is a part where a blue troll cuts his own foot of with a saw, leaving blue blood everywhere. I just don't get why that was even necessary, it seemed an excuse for violence; and not a good one at that.
About the only decent thing in the film was the part where one of the children hotwires a van so they can escape and when ask where she learnt to do that she said "At scouts."
On whole, it is enough to entertain smaller children, but is not of great taste, nor of a position that allows it to be considered so bad it's funny. If you really want to entertain children, show them some Disney classics, not this indie failure.
This movie also has the cheapest special effects I've seen in any recently made movie. Had the plot been anything close to decent, that may have been tolerable...
There is a story: a group of kids hunting for monsters that aren't real. It is left a bit unclear whether they actually believe in said monsters before they discover an actual troll from their favorite card game.
All in all the movie was a big joke, and a pain to watch. Good thing it wasn't longer than one and half hours. Maybe the kids will find something alluring in the shallow, ridiculous form of acting, but for me, this was a huge disappointment. Not that I expected much to begin with.
