Storyline

The world has become a vast conglomerate of islands of varying size and shape. This babbling universe is mainly populated with ruthless rogues, surly peasants and illiterate, petty lords. Their main concerns revolve around two fundamental rules: Eat and don't get eaten. For this new world has become infested with a terrible plague: omnipresent, monstrously famished, mutant creatures are wreaking havoc - They are known as the Dragons. Gwizdo and Lian-Chu are two dragon hunters, but are a long way from being among the best. Their only real talents: the size of the hulking brute with the heart of gold, Lian-Chu, and Gwizdo's talent for scams of all and any shape or form. Their sole ambition: to buy a little farm where they can relax and raise mussels, a creature that is a lot less unpleasant and difficult to hunt down than dragons. A few islands away rises the fortress of Lord Arnold. Arnold has a problem: he's living in terror at the thought of the return of World Eater, that horrible ... Written by Anonymous

In a Perfect World, All CGI Animated Movies Would Consist of Visuals of This Caliber!
25 October 2013 | by KissEnglishPastoSee all my reviews

............................................................from Pasto,Colombia...Via: L.A. CA., CALI, COLOMBIA and ORLANDO, FL

1,000 Words? Not nearly enough to do this film justice. . Also, we'd be allowed more than 1K Words to discuss a cinematic marvel. The real title is "Chasseurs de Dragon".(Don't confuse this with "Dragon Hunter"!) Name any specific area for evaluating or critiquing a CGI film and "Hunters" is flawlessly top-notch. Every frame, quite literally, is a work of art!

Immediately after viewing my rental copy, I ran out and bought one. In areas such as creative/artistic design and rendering, conceptualization, technical precision and execution, music soundtrack, and sound engineering "Dragon Hunters" set a new CGI standard for 2008, and could have served as the yardstick by which all future CGI endeavors were measured.

In fact, at times, remarkably, I felt it was almost too good! The unparalleled meticulous attention to detail was almost distracting. One example: The nerdy little side-kick/manager character had faint acne scars on his face! Can you believe that?

After experiencing this surreal French production I'm prompted to issue this warning: Pixar and Dreamworks, you'd best stand up and take notice! "Hunters" from an artistic standpoint, has both great highbrow and lowbrow appeal. When Salvador Dali had dreams at age 10, I'm sure they were reminiscent of "Hunters". There is something in this movie for everyone. The acting, by the way, was delightful. Forrest Whitaker gave a firm but nuanced performance.

9*....ENJOY/DISFRUTELA!

Any comments, questions or observations, in English o en Español, are most welcome!.....KissEnglishPasto@Yahoo.com
