      Gideon Watching orcs repeatedly learn the hard way how to fight against guns is just as entertaining as it sounds. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/18/23 Full Review Audience Member I enjoyed this movie overall. It doesn't appear that it was meant to be a comedy, but I found much of it hilarious. It was unintentionally funny. It was funny mainly because many parts were just so silly, but at the same time, the silliness didn't tread so far where it was completely unbelievable. And the storyline was creative enough to hold my interest to the end of the movie. That's my feelings on it anyway. If it wasn't so funny, i would've given this movie 2 stars. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Absolutely beautiful satire!! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Dragonfyre is a film about fantasy creatures coming to earth to find a fugitive princess and the US military veteran who becomes the guardian who can save her. Plot wise the concept is cheesy but fun, orcs and a dragon running around in the American west is fun. Unfortunately there are too many unanswered questions, like why are the orcs and the crazy witch lady after the princess? How many orcs are there, even approximately (a single establishing shot of the whole orcish horde would have fixed that). Why does White Feather know all this stuff, or do we just assume that all Native Americans know mystical stuff? Why is the big orc suddenly unhappy with the fate of his people? Why do the orcs just give up at the end? Really the plot just needed a few more scenes for background, a few more establishing shots, and it would have been fine. There's no question that the first act of the movie is almost unwatchable, with constant shaky cam and frequent dutch angles even in establishing shots or shots that *try* to hold on text. Latter on though, the camera work goes into the competent range, and the shots are reasonably well composed. While the orcs looked like extras from a Lord of the Rings movie, the dragon looked surprisingly good, it was well modeled, textured, and animated. Really, you could just watch the dragon scenes and skip the rest of the movie. All of the blood, explosions, and fire are badly composited CG effects, and the fire is especially bad, in one scene the whole of our hero's house explodes in fire after the dragon set the roof on fire (in itself a rather baffling occurrence, was there a gas leak?). Later the house is shown with just the roof on fire, no broken glass, and no fire damage bellow the top few feet of the house. While the dragon was great (and looked nothing like the thumbnail art on Netflix or the poster on Rotten Tomatoes, which is s shame, since I like the movie's dragon better) honestly they should have spent some of that dragon money on a CG orc horde establish shot, and some CG fire that has a smoother color gradient. Overall most of the movie is either unwatchablly shot or bafflingly incoherent and unexplained. Someone should make a "fan" edit of the film that cuts out every scene not involving the dragon. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review dar 1 At half a star this is a must watch. It's like when you were a kid, and you played on that slide. But to you and no one else that slide was a wall of weapons. Upon looking up you see a horde of orcs you must defeat. The movie basically follows the premsie that there's a princess, a band of orcs, a dragon, and random quirky actions scenes that you want to replay. In fact it's hard to distinguish this film from others because of the "DRAGON" part. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member An aging guardian of a gate between realms dies and a warrior replacement is always chosen. Since the alternate realm doesn't have advanced weapons they call the guardian a magician. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
