This began incoherently; it seemed to be a series of vignettes that had little connection. As it went on, it came together pretty well. The dragons were awesome, but there was not enough of them in the movie. The acting is barely decent - Swayze overplays it hugely, Perabo looks great but lacks presence. It appears the director didn't know what effect he was looking for, campy fantasy or action with a fantasy backdrop. He wound up throwing everything at the wall and went with whatever stuck. Not great by a long stretch, but it was worth the watch by the time it ended.
