Verdict on Dragonheart Vengeance
Dragonheart Vengeance is an action-adventure fantasy movie. It follows a young farmer as he gets to learn about the power of the dragon in a revenge-filled journey. All along uncovering a bigger problem in the kingdom they live in.
This being the 5th in the franchise with a massive gap between each movie looks to capture the popular dragons in entertainment. We can thank Game of Thrones for this. When it comes to pure adventure, it is easy to watch and doesn’t do anything outside of what we would expect. However, it is all by-the-book storytelling, with an unlikely person stepping up against the power that is controlled by power. You can see where the story will go, and it leaves us exactly where you would expect it to.
Final Thoughts – Dragonheart Vengeance is a by-the-book fantasy movie.
