This was a delightful surprise. I had never seen the original Disney film, and I knew little about this one before I watched it. I found it charming and sweet. I often find movie children extremely annoying, but I liked Pete. I loved Elliott. The dragon special effects were very good. I enjoyed this far more than I was expecting. It is a true family film that can be enjoyed by all ages.

A fun musical that mixes animation with live-action to produce a classic tale of friendship, family, and mischief. A colorful cast of characters--including a boy, a dragon, a lighthouse-keeper and her sometimes-inebriated father, pair of shady traveling salesmen, a filthy family on a mission to reclaim their "property," a sailor lost at sea--bring the story and songs to charming life. On a personal note, I just love how Eliot speaks!

I liked this. I loved the animation of Elliot the dragon and it's characterization. The only thing that let it down was the idiotic behavior to hurt and hunt down something that you are frightened of or can use for propping up one's ego. Insert eye roll. But, that's what's expected with a remake of the Disney film. I'm a sucker for a feel good, let's just be nice to each other film. :-)

A slow, contemplative, film with a gorgeous forest green and brown visual palette.
However, the film's contemplative subject matter leaves little to contemplate. The film's major conflict is a cliché battle between the natural world and capitalism. The end result is neither unexpected or revolutionary. The film also attempts nothing innovative with the already overused "boy and creature" trope.

The films is however an improvement on the terrible original film.

Heartwarming, cute, and ultimately hope-ful, but definitely a tearjerker! By the end of the movie, I still felt a bit crushed by the tragic moments, but I loved every single character, and wished I had my own Eliot for a friend.
