Dragonheart

A rather disappointing flick starring Dennis Quaid as a mentor to the prince of England. When the prince almost dies, a captured dragon (voiced by Sean Connery) saves his life by giving him half his heart in exchange for freedom, but the dragon makes the prince swear that he will rule with a merciful hand. Well, the prince inevitably turns evil and Dennis Quaid blames it on the dragon, so he goes on a quest to kill every single dragon left in the world. He kills all but one (who just happens to be the very one he sent out to destroy in the first place) and actually ends up befriending the creature! The only reason to watch this flick is for the creative (but lacking) premise and the absolutely flawless special effects. The computer-generated dragon looks astoundingly real.
