Thankfully DAWN OF THE DRAGON SLAYER comes to the rescue and really delivers the goods!The films tells the story of Will, a guy setting out to avenge a fire-breathing, flying dragon after killing his father. There's a love story in here too and plenty of human drama to really flesh the film out and give it a lot more substance. This allows the film's plot to be much more heavier and a lot more interesting.DAWN OF THE DRAGON SLAYER features a rather new and unknown cast and crew, but don't be fooled into thinking that's a bad thing. Far from it! The performances in this film are all top-notch and brilliantly acted. Perhaps the star of the film is Ian Cullen (from Z CARS, F and DOCTOR WHO), but I thought that Richard McWilliams did a fantastic job as the lead alongside Nicola Posener despite it being his first film role. I can see him going far and making a big name for himself if this is anything to go by!The special effects in a film can often make or break a film of this nature, and is the line in which awesomeness and utter crap come together. However, the CGI in DAWN OF THE DRAGONSLAYER is excellent! The dragon's design is brilliantly terrifying and all in all it looks very convincing indeed - definetly a good thing!Overall, this film is easily one of the best Dragon films out there. If you're a fan of such films as THE LORD OF THE RINGS, REIGN OF FIRE or the TV show MERLIN, or just think Dragon's are pretty damn cool, then you will absolutly love this film. I did!Highly highly recommended!
Manu G (fr) wrote: A Knock Out ComedyThe movie and the story is kinda likable but it's really cheezy, predictable and not funny. I knew exactly what to expect from this movie and got just that.KNUCKLEHEAD follows con artist Eddie Sullivan (Mark Feuerstein), who, after incurring a large debt with a local bookie (Dennis Farina), creates a get-rich-quick scheme by enlisting a sweet gentle giant named Walter (Paul The Big Show Wight) as his unwitting accomplice. Walter's orphanage - the only home hes ever known - also needs funds desperately. Upon overhearing Walters predicament, Eddie convinces the no-nonsense head nun, Sister Francesca (Wendie Malick), that Walter can win the money as a fighter and pay off the church's debts. Eddies plan: travel from town to town with Walter and enter small, unsanctioned fighting competitions for prize money. Sister Francesca dispatches Mary (Melora Hardin) as a chaperone for both Walter and the money and gives Eddie a week - and a prayer - to make it happen. During their journey across the south to the annual Pro-Am MMA tournament in New Orleans, Walter discovers what life is like outside the orphanage, while Eddie becomes morally conflicted over whether to take all the loot for himself or keep his promise to Walter, the one person he can actually call a friend.

Georgios L (ru) wrote: A strange little film which amusingly combines Dracula, Frankenstein and Wolfman! It reminded me of the contemporary" Van Helsing" in the sense that it combines all the aforementioned icons without actually doing anything with them. Dracula is not particularly scary and the fact that he wants to be cured of his vampirism is quite a put-off not to mention completely absurd. Later on, of course, we realise that this is not the case and that he really has got his eye on one of the nurses of the Doctor who is supposed to cure him. The treatment, of course, goes awry, and the doctor becomes... well not a vampire but some kind of Mr Hyde. Add to that a werewolf that truly wants to be cured and the corpse of Frankestein's monster and you have a great big mess of a film. It is also very enjoyable! There are moments of beauty in this film, don't get me wrong! There is this great scene where Dracula's object of affection is playing the Moonlight Sonata; Dracula sees her and makes her play a completely transformed sonata which sounds very discordant and percussive. He uses his mind controlling ability to get her to follow him into"his world" which is where the music comes from. She almost succumbs to him, but at one moment she touches the cross on her neck which effectively counters breaks Dracula's spell. The music changes back to the original. I found the werewolf transformation very good for the time of filming(1945). The female huntchback was very good too, she is way prettier than the lead actress. Nevertheless, the plot is childishly predictable and all the iconic villains are never used to their full potential. Worth seeing if you like the atmosphere of these films and if it's Halloween!
