If there was one film from the 1970s/80s early heyday of fantasy films that perfectly straddled the divide between kiddie movies and gorefests, it was Dragonslayer.

It is a lively, fun, suspenseful, beautiful medieval romance what Excalibur tried to be, should have been, and wasn't.

A really solid fun fantasy story that I think holds up quite well.

This movie has two big things going for it -- the dragon and the man who masterminds its slaying.

An innocent adventure that's technically slick and lacking in pretense, this film should provide a nice scare for kids, and maybe a few of the grown-ups too.

It doesn't take itself too seriously and benefits from a good cast that includes Ralph Richardson and John Hallam. The effects aren't bad either.

An unknown treasure of a fantasy film and well worth a look for fans of the genre.

This film has smoky atmosphere, medieval sets, and rugged terrain strange enough to suggest far-off mythic lands; moreover, its special effects are positively staggering.

The film excels as a visual exercise, as a study in adolescent psychology, and even as astute political analysis.

Vintage fantasy epic is great, despite a too-graphic death.

A well intentioned fantasy with some wonderful special effects, Dragonslayer falls somewhat short on continuously intriguing adventure.

Verges on the nasty for the nippers; sails close to dj vu for fantasy fans; fated, probably, to damnation by faint praise.

Looked far better when released due to tech aspects.

The scenes involving the dragon are first-rate. The beast is one of the meanest, ugliest, most reprehensible creatures I've ever seen in a film, and when it breathes flames it looks like it's really breathing flames.

Mr. Robbins's overall accomplishment is one of creating a mood, and he does this well enough to make up for the film's occasional cumbersomeness.
