Two words Shaken camera.
Verified purchase
I couldn't finish because the shake can was solo bad. I mean they forgot his bow at the beginning, then there is shake cam. Which is terrible, immediately anyone can tell they are trying too hard to make it seem like a top rated film. But shaking the camera in the first major battle makes it so the audience can't tell what's going on at all, I would recommend a different film.

Fair but don't expect much.

Orcs. Dragons. An evil wizard. Prophets. An elvenish princess. A berserker. Familial hunters. A magical time to be had by all ... kinda.

There was a reasonable amount of entertainment and action though it was not on the scale of a blockbuster. The feel and quality reminded me of watching Hercules with Kevin Sorbo or Xena with Lucy Lawless: B-rate soap operas with ancient beasts. Performances akin the wizard's are like weekend stage actors. The female lead was eye candy for sure, judging by the stylish revealing outfit they had her in, but she was a decent actor in regards to the norm here. The two balding brutes seemed like the neighbors next door, but the writing kept their wordplay appropriate: "you think fear weakens a man? I believe it is fear that makes me fight harder". The dragon hunter as an inexperienced, weakly emotional youth was fine but the actor used didn't fit this imagery well, as he was a grown, 20+ man.

At some points, the dialogue becomes one life quote after another. The score is worth pointing out. It may not be Basil Paledouris but it gives a sense of wonder and magic at times, though nothing extreme.

Horrible Acting and even worse Camera Work. Low Budget and not even Amature.
Verified purchase
This had the chance to be a halfway decent movie but NOPE. There are 3 decent Actors in this movie and not one of them is a main character. This has some of the worst camera work I've ever seen. This is makes the movie Blair Witch look like a masterpiece. The fight scenes could have been somewhat decent if not for such horrible camera work. The special effects are horrible and the dragon was pathetic. The one spin that was good was how the dragon delivered its young as a parasite. There's only one real fight scene with the dragon and it is so pathetic it's unreal. The elf and the brute (not sure what he was but the big guy) and the one actor who seemed to actually have experience (Nathan) were the only good thing about this movie. There just really isn't anything to brag about. It truly is horrible.

Entertaining

I had fun watching it. Agreed, the "shaky cam" was annoying but it only happened during the first two battles. And I pretty much liked all the characters, So yes, looking for a fun watch check it out.

For a more comedic approach check out "Orcs!", also available on Prime, starring Adam Johnson ("Malnick" in Dragon Hunter). Recommended.

“Some things are worse than death.” Being eaten by a dragon rates high on the list.
Verified purchase
All of the fight sequences in this movie were just a blur, literally. Whoever was in charge of the camera in these crucial moments was playing hopscotch at the same time. That, or waltzing, falling down on the job, fighting off hornets, being shaken by a very big dog…take your pick. The point is, I couldn’t see what was going on, who was fighting who, technically speaking, I still don’t know what an Orc looks like because the darn camera was in frenzy-mode!!! I won’t even mention the odd collection of disparate accents involved. Or the fact that dragons were rarely seen (they came late and didn’t stay long). Otherwise, this was exasperatingly mediocre…if that!

Too cheesy and low budget
Verified purchase
Although this film had a followable plotline and character development, the writing was very cheesy and predictable. During action scenes, especially in the beginning of the film, I nearly got motion sick from the terribly shaky camera work, which I suspect they did on purpose to mask poor quality acting/choreography. While this isn't the worst film I've ever seen, I struggled to watch the entire thing and would never recommend it.

Better than I thought it would be.
Verified purchase
Good writing added to the serious nature of the way this film was made. The actors are not acting, they are really feeling it, and the clumsy wimp turns out okay with minimal yawning.

Decent and Entertaining
Verified purchase
This type of movie is gonna be low production value and a B-list cast of actors. But they made the most with it, and I found it entertaining. The script wasn't terrible, and the battle scenes were decent.
