The characters are sketchy, the plot is full of logical holes and the story is all fight and flight. But despite its flaws, it is enjoyable if you like special effects, warriors and computer-generated dragons.
Look too closely at it, and you'll find a question or two that aren't satisfactorily answered by film's end. But it deserves high marks for not being quite like anything else -- for being, in fact, just different enough to impress.
It's the kind of earnest, no-nonsense monster movie Hollywood used to toss out in the 1950s, and it works for one reason only: The ability of a handful of good actors, and monster movie-loving filmmakers, to keep a straight face.
