Dragonheart

Rob Cohen

In the closing paragraph of his 1996 review of Dragonheart, noted critic Roger Ebert summed up this adventurous fantasy quite nicely: “While no reasonable person over the age of 12 would presumably be able to take it seriously, there is nevertheless a lighthearted joy to it, a cheerfulness, an insouciance, that recalls the days when movies were content to be fun.” That’s precisely the quality that makes Dragonheart so appealing, despite the fact that it didn’t exactly take flight and breathe fire at the box office.

It’s trash, but it’s fun trash, in which a hotshot Los Angeles cop named Brian (Paul Walker) infiltrates a gang of street racers suspected of fencing stolen goods from hijacked trucks.
