Dragonquest is a 2009 fantasy film produced by The Asylum. It stars legendary sword-and-sandal veteran Marc Singer as Maxim, a warrior who must guide a young farm boy across a dangerous terrain to retrieve the missing gems from an ancient medallion in order to bring peace to the land. The film also stars Jason Connery as The King and Brian Thompson as the villain, Kirill. The film is a mockbuster of the film "Eragon".

It bears no relation to either the novel of the same name by Anne McCaffrey or the Dragon Quest series of role-playing games by publisher Square Enix.

Plot[edit]

The film takes place in a world based loosely on Medieval Europe, where Sorcery is commonplace and people live in a feudal society.

An evil wizard, wishing to conquer the world for his own, unleashes a seemingly unstoppable dragon onto the world to terrorize the peasant folk into submission. The creature can withstand any attack from humans, and appears indestructible.

However, a small resistance movement has formed to defeat the wizard utilizing the strength of a fabled dragon believed to be the only creature in the land that can match the fire dragon in strength, and so the vigilantes set out in their quest for the dragon to save the kingdom.
