Dragon Knight is a medieval drama starring Daniel Auteuil as an immortal Knight named Guillaume de Montauban who was scarred from dragon’s fire, and now travels around having adventures and being a Knight. His quest in this movie is to track down an escaped poet and return him to the Pope, but he must deal with another Knight who is trying to thwart him as he desires to complete the same task. Felix de Sisteron, (Nicolas Nollet) a young teen, seeks out the Knight to join him on his adventures as his Squire as well as his sidekick named Raoul de Vautadour (Sergi Lopez), a man who turns into a wild boar at night.
Dragon Knight is now out on DVD and Revolver Entertainment was gracious enough to send me a copy for review. Honestly, I had only one problem with this DVD. The English dub was frankly awful. At many points it was actually laughable. You see, Dragon Knight is a French movie that is actually quite visually stunning. The cinematography is avant-garde, and the action leaves you on the edge of your seat. It really left me wishing the DVD had the original French soundtrack with English subtitles. Good news though, the digital download version that’s out on July 30th will have that option. I would suggest to my readers who venture to see this to spend your time reading the subtitles, this movie is good enough that it’s worth it.
Overall Rating 6 out of 10
