I do not at all like the amount of running and jumping and sword swinging that Mike the Knight portrays. My son, after watching, grabbed a bike helmet, a spoon, and his tricycle and said, "Look mommy I'm Mike going after the dragon!" This movie is not at all appropriate for anyone under the age of 15 and I would not recommend it to a friend. It also has no educational value and the plot is absolutely nonexistent.

The boastful, spirited little knight encounters funny villains, a fearsome dragon that isn't fearsome at all, and learns an important lesson about listening to his dad; fans won't be disappointed. It's also a nice introduction for those new to the brand. A highlight of this entry is the music; several Broadway-like production numbers are original, well-produced, and very entertaining. It's definitely best suited for little kids, though at just under an hour, it may be a bit long for very young viewers. Older children may find it simplistic, obvious, or juvenile.
