Radio Times Review

It must have seemed like a good idea at the time: take Herman Melville's classic adventure Moby Dick and transform it into a story about dragons, with Ahab seeking vengeance on the winged beast that killed his family and left him scarred for life when he was just a young boy. It sounds full of promise, but the results are actually far from enticing. Lethal Weapon star Danny Glover, complete with milky blind eye and waxy make-up, doesn't put enough passion or menace into his role as the bitter Ahab, while Vinnie Jones sleepwalks through his performance as Ahab's chief harpoonist. In a predictable script, there's also a romantic subplot involving Ahab's adopted daughter Rachel (Sofia Pernas), who has to choose between loyalty to her father and her attraction to the dashing Ishmael (Corey Sevier). Canadian director Ryan Little fails to inject any excitement into all the derring-do, while the CGI dragons vary wildly in quality. Fans of How to Train Your Dragon will certainly be disappointed, much like everyone else.

The MovieDB Overview   (tap to view)

Age of the Dragons is an adaptation of Herman Melville's classic novel Moby Dick. Set in a medieval realm where Captain Ahab and crew hunt dragons for the vitriol that powers their world, Ishmael, a charismatic harpooner and his friend Queequeg join their quest. Ahab's adopted daughter Rachel, beautiful and tough, runs the hunting vessel. Ahab's obsession to seek revenge on a great White Dragon that slaughtered his family when he was young and left his body scarred and mauled, drives the crew deeper into the heart of darkness. In the White Dragon's lair Ahab's secrets are revealed and Rachel must choose between following him on his dark quest or escaping to a new life with Ishmael.
