Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

DRAGON GUARDIANS has a lot of ambition but unfortunately doesn't quite live up to its lofty goals. There are a lot of characters, many with names from the King Arthur stories, which young kids probably won't recognize. And those with less mythical names also are confusing, such as the dragon named Elfy and the elf named Robin. A lot of plot points also start to feel jumbled and confusing since many key aspects of the story are only revealed close to the end, making it difficult to know what's going on, if you ever actually figure it out.

Parents will like the many positive messages sprinkled throughout the film and the way that good conquers evil. Kids will probably like the fun, adventurous feel to the movie, though they may find themselves confused about some of the characters or plot points.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
