This movie is maybe one of the best animated movies i've seen in my life and probably one the best adaptations of a serie on the big screen. The way the movie bring the 2d original design of the serie into the 3d world is just amazing. The backgrounds are absolutely stunning. The story isn't too complicated but not too much simple either. The characters are likable and the music is impressive. Honestly this movie made me cry more than once. If you want to show a great animated movie to your kids, this one is almost perfect. And even if you're an adult, maybe you will enjoy it too.

Spotty animation and extremely standard plot, not very memorable either.

The French and 3D animation don't go well together. Dragon Hunters is a subpar animated film about an idealistic girl wanting to meet a brave stumbling upon a gentle giant, and they hunt for dragon. Nothing interesting to see here other than horrible writing and really terrible voice acting.

Considering what I got for 5 dollars, I was blown away. Even more so by the TV series, which I discovered after this movie. It's fun, has a unique world, and stars one of the most huggable giants in years. Pick it up if you see it.

An animated adventure movie from France. Some imaginative scenery with stereotypically unimaginative characters done in CGI. The story is told in such a straightforward manner that there were no surprises which led to a bit of boredom on my part. Meh.

Dragon Hunters (Chasseurs de dragons) French animation film directed by Arthur Owak and Guillaume Ivernel. Dragon Hunters is based on television series of same name. In English-dubbed version Lian's voice is provided by Forest Whitaker.

A fantasy film - young girl named Zoe lives with her blind uncle a rich medieval man. Her uncle is trying hard to get a great dragon killed - this fascinates Zoe and she embarks upon journey to find the worthy ones in the lands and suddenly comes across three characters who are working in alliance (especially mighty Lian) Lian the warrior, Hector. Hector lies to Zoe about being 'noble-knight's so to con her, in deep down they are poor orphans playing around petty dragons, while Lian is pursuing dream to capture the real on -

It is simple animation film that almost gives us an idea of what is going on around the film and what actually needs to be done; does not leave you thinking suspiciously about itsy-bitsy flaws or vacuum left behind. Characters provide fun, humor. Mesmerizing music-score in the mid of the film.

Un film d'animation assez amusant et graphiqument très original. Les personnages sont très attachants.

Chasseurs de Dragons : l'univers est sympathique, mais son potentiel est mal exploité ; dommage. De plus, le doublage français avec la voix insupportable de Patrick Timsit finit d'en clouer les planches du cercueil.

About as gorgeous as animation can be.. it's just absolutely stunning to watch. Considering that it was released in 2008, it holds up remarkably well.. you might say, it hasn't aged a day. I only wish it had a bit more substance to its beauty, though it makes up for it with jaw-dropping originality in its visuals. Unlike anything else you've ever seen.

Oh oh oh!!! This is now my new favorite movie! The art work had me swooning, the story line had me hooked, the strange paths the movie whirlwinded down had me cocking my head going, "curiouser and curiouser..."
The music took my breath away and then gave it back to me with interest!!!
I'd love to meet the mind behind this find!
*sigh of bliss*

A kids movie about some adventurers with very little adventure, it falls short in many aspects and most of the time it seems like its missing important pieces of the story.

I happened to catch it on TV and not knowing anything about it. While the story is far for original, it is worth a watch just for the scenes and visuals.
