First off, I would like to say, I have never played any of the Dragon Quest games, I have seen it once or twice when my older brother played around on one of the video games, but I have to say that it is really impressive to see this story starting from Gameplay of the early days of the Famicom while keeping in mind that it is showing the events leading up to the beginning scene of the movie as Luca and his father prepare to fight Bishop Ladja was a keen idea for fans who’ve played the game before while introducing it to new fans to seek out the game to try themselves. One of the other things that work well for this movie was that the team, Director have made sure to keep what we have come to love about the RPG Genre, that it can have complex world-building elements and mechanics; while it does rely on CGI in battles (often heavy at times,) it is good to see that the animation is not clunky on certain scenes or facial expressions.

Speaking of battles, these battles were wonderful to watch (although Ladja’s henchmen were the ugliest creatures I have ever seen, ) there were at times it would keep you on the edge of your seat, for example, Børn the Behemoose and the second battle with Bishop Ladja. The ending, however, will throw people off and most likely confuse the hell out of you at first but nevertheless, this was still worth checking out; and worth it for fans of this series of games.
