I love a film that doesn't aim to be anything other than escapist pap. Throw in a few clich?s, some extravagant acting and a couple of predictable plot lines and you have a movie about whatever. The skill in this mixture is pulling it off with style.
Dragonheart does this with ease. A great medieval romp with dragons, swords and evil kings. Disengage the need for an esoteric stimulating experience every time you watch a film and this will do you good.
The acting is great, though with Sean Connery, Dennis Quaid and Pete Postlethwaite you don't expect anything less. This is cinematic adventuring at its best.
