Chasseurs de dragons (aka Dragon Hunters) Movie Review

Friday, August 5, 2016

What is it about?
Zoe is a little girl who believes in fairy tales. In order to help her uncle Lord Arnold get rid of a terrible dragon, Zoe decides she has to find some heroes. When she meets Gwizdo and Lian-Chu - a couple of two-bit, fly-by-night dragon hunters, she decides that she's going to believe in them and set out on an adventure to bring peace to the land.



What did I think?
The story was okay. It definitely had really good moments, but it was also plagued with longer boring bits. The characters were great, especially Lian-Chu. However, the best thing about this film is the world in which the story takes place. The landscapes are absolutely beautiful and I found them to be the perfect portrayal of a fantasy land where dragons could exist. I also really enjoyed the unique style of the dragons. I watched the English dub and the voice-acting was a little distracting for me. The actors lacked emotion where they needed it and went overboard to the point of feeling cheesy in other moments. I enjoyed it, but I do not see myself rewatching it unless I am extremely bored.

6/10
