Is It Any Good?

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

For fantasy fans, Dragons: Fire and Ice will be entertaining, in spite of the primitive computer animation. There are plenty of battle scenes, unusual creatures and landscapes at every turn, and plot twists and turns as the movie primarily centers on the relationship between teenagers Prince Dev and Princess Kyra. There's a detailed backstory that combined with the events that transpire during the movie go far to show there is much at stake for the characters and the kingdoms they represent.

However, for parents and kids not as smitten with fantasy, the story might feel like a jumble of battle scenes and creatures with complicated names. Furthermore, for younger or more sensitive viewers, some of these demonic creatures look like nightmares waiting to happen, especially as they move and fight amidst fiery orange backgrounds. That being said, this movie is best for those who already enjoy the fantasy genre and are mature enough to not be overwhelmed by the scary stuff.
