Saints and Soldiers director Ryan Little offers this inventive take on Herman Mellville's Moby Dick, substituting that tale's elusive white shark for a mythical dragon pursued by a determined Captain Ahab (Danny Glover) and his devoted band of followers. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Herman Melville's Moby-Dick gets a landlocked remix courtesy of ill-conceived action-adventure Age of the Dragons."
‑ Charles Gant, Variety
"Like a harpoon in the side of Herman Melville's great novel, this low budget fantasy yarn is more drag than dragon."
‑ Kim Newman, Empire Magazine
"Sadly, any car-crash appeal is undercut by the cardinal B-movie sin: dullness."
‑ Matt Glasby, Total Film
"Fans of How to Train Your Dragon will certainly be disappointed, much like everyone else."
‑ Karen Krizanovich, Radio Times
"Watch the opening sequence, skip everything that else that follows."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"There is some truth in advertising - Age Of The Dragons does drag on for an age."
‑ Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film
"Entirely forgettable and somewhat unhealthy, lingering on the palate like an impulsive, Friday-night kebab."
‑ Michael Leader, Little White Lies
"As the actors ham it up, we're surprised how involved we get in their increasingly ridiculous story."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"Might have worked in the hands of Roger Corman and John Sayles."
‑ Philip French, Guardian
"Dreadful Moby Dick adaptation that squanders its perfectly decent set-up and is further let down by a terrible script, atrocious acting, poor action sequences and some extremely dodgy special effects."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"When the dystopian future envisioned in Blade Runner finally comes to fruition, Age of the Dragons will be used to distinguish humans from replicants, because if you're not in teary despair by the film's end, you probably aren't human."
‑ Shaun Munro, What Culture
