“Wiz kid Vs the World”

Films: Dragonquest (2009)

Alias: Fire dragon, swamp serpent, giant spider, light dragon

Type: Mystical

Location: Civilized Area/Forest/Swamp/Cave/Mountains

Summary: No, this is not that popular video game franchise with Akira Toriyama's guidance. This is another bargain-bin fantasy flick that could have easily been replicated in a DnD game, and with much more oomph to it too! But for the moment, try to enjoy. Try.

History: In Generic Fantasy World #3007, the evil sorcerer Kirill has summoned a great fire dragon to rain down upon the free world. A budding sorcerer has taken notice after his mentor got killed by the dragon, so now he seeks out a way to stop it. There are stories of a light dragon out there waiting for a powerful magic user to guide it and vanquish evil. So, our young hero gathers up some fellow heroes, and the Dragonquest begins.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: After a long journey, the protagonist confronts Kirill on the mountains, with the light dragon going up against the fire dragon as the two sorcerers engage in a (tedious) beam war. The fire dragon is brought down just as Kirill loses the fight, and all is saved. Hooray!

Powers/Abilities: The dragons are unstoppable, though the fire one acts as a conduit between its and Kirill's mind, and can use hypnosis if it has to before the fire comes down.

Weakness: For the dragons, each other.

Scariness Factor: 1.5-Oh, how we pity that poor fire dragon. It had such a baller design only for it to be wasted on awful CGI along with all the other creatures. Never trust the Asylum with monsters, especially not ones constantly surrounded by a specific element. Then you KNOW that corners will be cut.

Trivia: -We're at a loss here.

-Did anything ever become of the people behind this movie? It's an Asylum flick, for corn's sake!

Even the Japanese knew that the title was ripe for the comparison to the source material! Sorta.
