Adventures of a Teenage Dragon Slayer


Branded as a ‘nerd’ and harassed by the school bully, 12-year-old Arthur is rescued by a magical troll who knows that the boy unwittingly holds the secret to defeat an evil dragon. Arthur’s loving mom, struggling to keep her devious ex-husband from gaining custody of Arthur, dismisses her son’s ‘fantasies’ until she realizes the all-too-real immediate danger and joins forces with Arthur, the troll, and a dashing but washed up video-game master. Together, they hope to conquer the dragon and the wicked vice-principal who threaten civilization.

Dove Review

“Adventures of a Teenage Dragon Slayer” is a film that is comical and pure fantasy. As a group of friends look into the sewer, they soon find out that the cards they have been collecting from a certain game of trolls, dragons and potions are real. Arthur, Tim and Anne are joined by the creator of the cards and Arthur’s mom to prove this is happening and to help to destroy the dragon.

This is one of those spoof movies with a predictable outcome and is pure fantasy much like some movies of the 80s. Due to some of the rudeness, disrespect and crude humor, we award this film the Dove “Family-Approved” 12+ Seal for ages 12 and older.
