Firedrake the Silver Dragon (Dragon Rider) (2020)
Critic Reviews for Firedrake the Silver Dragon (Dragon Rider)
The animated details, from the German production company Constantin Film, are slightly sub-Pixar, but the film compensates with muscular pacing, empathetic vocal turns and a witty cine-literate screenplay.
Dragon Rider is unlikely to spawn many imitators of its own - even if it did, how could anyone tell? - but as a half-term diversion, it ticks every box.
Gags about online dating and Skype already date this formulaic snore fest, whose plot manages to be both fast-paced and boring, while the characterisation is as basic as the CGI-animation.
A reasonably entertaining German family animation based on the 1997 bestseller by children's author Cornelia Funke.
Although the gags and peril could use more fire-power, the disarming result boasts plenty of underdog charm, and the film gradually finds a modest place of its own in the dragon animation marketplace.
