What was the movie about?
The movie was about a prince who is being trained by his teacher to fight like a knight. When the king dies in battle, his son becomes the king and gets injured while taking the crown off his father's head. A dragon needs to give him a heart so he can live. The prince becomes corrupt and the teacher knight needs to stop him with the help of a dragon. And so the adventure begins.

What I thought about the movie.
I thought the movie was good because it had a dragon in it and I love dragons. The PG-13 rating is only because there are some scenes that have a lot of blood shown in them. But I would still say it's a good movie, as long as you're not afraid of some blood.

What I learned about making films.
I really like the silhouette effect used for the dragon and the knight. The dragon special effects weren't the best I've ever seen, but pretty good anyway.

Why I think other kids should see this film.
There are parts in the movie that surprise you suddenly and it's very exciting. I already saw the movie a bunch of times and I see something new each time. If you like knights, dragons, and adventure, you should see this movie.

Funny. Even though it is called DragonHeart, I forgot there was a dragon in it! I will have to watch it again.
