      Kevin Maher Times (UK) The animated details, from the German production company Constantin Film, are slightly sub-Pixar, but the film compensates with muscular pacing, empathetic vocal turns and a witty cine-literate screenplay. Rated: 4/5 Feb 20, 2021 Full Review Robbie Collin Daily Telegraph (UK) Dragon Rider is unlikely to spawn many imitators of its own - even if it did, how could anyone tell? - but as a half-term diversion, it ticks every box. Rated: 3/5 Feb 13, 2021 Full Review Larushka Ivan-Zadeh Metro Newspaper (UK) Gags about online dating and Skype already date this formulaic snore fest, whose plot manages to be both fast-paced and boring, while the characterisation is as basic as the CGI-animation. Rated: 1/5 Feb 11, 2021 Full Review Charles Hartford But Why Tho? A Geek Community Firedrake the Silver Dragon is a solid movie that will probably manage to hold the attention of younger viewers looking for something new to watch, while probably failing to hold the attention of any adult in the room. Rated: 7/10 Jan 23, 2023 Full Review Victoria Luxford City AM The film nudges at (its inspiration) with a scene set at the premiere of a film called How To Tame Your Dragon. It doesnt quite live up to those comparisons, as it has none of the grace of that trilogy. Its a bouncy family comedy, no more no less. Rated: 3/5 Mar 1, 2022 Full Review Kevin Harley Radio Times Although the gags and peril could use more fire-power, the disarming result boasts plenty of underdog charm, and the film gradually finds a modest place of its own in the dragon animation marketplace. Rated: 3/5 Oct 14, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews

      Juan Angel R Good Movie The animation is good The history too Only i think that can be better BUt a good movie Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/10/24 Full Review J.T. M Dragon Rider is the most incredible book I have ever read in my life. An unimaginable, incredible, glorious masterpiece of literature. A grand tale of epic proportions. When I heard this book would be getting a film eventually, I had so many incredible ideas and visions. This movie is none of the things I wanted or imagined. What could have been an epic live action tale of a deadly dragon conqueror and the glorious bond between a silver dragon and a human boy was squandered by this childrens film. This had great potential. Potential to become one of the most epic dragon tales of all of cinema history, battling even Dragon Heart, but it fell short in almost every way. A true disappointment. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/03/24 Full Review Chris M This movie feels like a discount "How To Train Your Dragon". Which isn't a bad thing. And I liked most of it except for two characters. But they do get better as the movie goes on. Overall, it's fun and entertaining. Worth checking out for dragon fans. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Cameron I The story is better good, and the characters are likeable and understandable. Some problems, with pacing though Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/15/23 Full Review Marjorie J Did these bozos even read the source material? Absolute parody of itself and only funny for the sheer stupidity. Not for real fans of the book. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 09/26/22 Full Review Audience Member I don't know how popular the books by Cornelia Funke are in other country but here in Germany it is pure nostalgia for so many of us. That's why I was so exited to finally get a filmversion of the book we all used to love as kids. I normally wouldn't write such a long critique but I didn't find an existing critizising the things I just don't get about this film. First of all I think it is pretty much a disaster. Ben, a loveble kid with nice backstory and desperat for a family, became an unlikeble character and thief with no real plotrelevance. He's just there. The Humunkulus (I'm not ganno use the name since I don't know how he is called in English) is just shoved into the movie, because they couldn't leave out another character (R.I.P. Lola, Gilbert, the monks etc.) and to give him some reason to exist Nesselbrandt (bad guy) has a Tinderprofile(sounds as weird as it is). Instead of actually caring about the point of the movie the developers rather made another overused "You can do it! Spit fire! Yay, you finally did it and defeated the bad guy!" plot. I'd rather have a 2hour and over long movie that gives the original readers the feeling the book had rather than this catastroph of a film. If you haven't read the books yet I would really recommend it. They are translated into many languages and way better than this. Tl;dr: A society criticising but fun to read story became daft and boring. A book with so many loveble characters and scenes became a film with unfunny jokes and unimportant characters. A great (maybe one of the best) book for adolescents became a disaster for toddlers. If you don't wanna be disappointed don't watch this calamity of a movie.
