* It's a ''good'' movie with a dragon in it, where that dragon is a major character, and on top of that he's voiced by '''Creator/SeanConnery!'''

* It's a ''good'' movie with a dragon in it, it (you'd be surprised at how many are not), where that dragon is a major character, and on top of that he's voiced by '''Creator/SeanConnery!'''

* Seriously, it's a movie with a ''[[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons DRAGON]]'' in it. Need I say more?
** [[Film/{{Eragon}} We could make it]] [[Film/ReignOfFire a little clearer]]: It's a ''good'' movie with a dragon in it, where that dragon is a major character, and on top of that he's voiced by '''Creator/SeanConnery!''' [[FunetikAksent Hell yesh!]]
** The fact that the effects for Draco still actually hold up after all these years, especially the incredible detail they used with his facial expressions, body movements/mannerisms, and even how his eyes follow the real people around him perfectly. Combine that with Connery's excellent voice acting and you've got one of the most unforgettable dragons on film.

** Freyne himself gets a small one in the aftermath, when Einon tries to take his crown. Freyne turns out to be NotQuiteDead and tries to stop him. Granted, he failed and succumbed to his wounds during the struggle, but this troper will give him points for actually surviving that brutal beatdown, at least for a little while.
* One scene that always stands out in the memory is when Kara and Brother Gilbert return to her village to try and rally support for a rebellion. The locals are unimpressed... until Bowen, recovered from his HeroicBSOD, returns on horseback and rides up to the crest of a nearby hill just in time for Draco to soar up, silhouetted against the sky. The image is striking enough to appear on [[http://i43.tower.com/images/mm106971141/dragonheart-dennis-quaid-dvd-cover-art.jpg the VHS and DVD covers]].

**To clarify, it's the spirit of ''King Arthur himself'' giving Bowen a DareToBeBadass speech by reciting the Old Code.

* While it ultimately fails and leads to a series of terrible consequences, the first peasant rebellion had one particularly awesome moment: while his troops are [[CurbStompBattle butchering the peasants]], King Freyne separates himself from them and starts [[KickTheDog torching a few peasant houses]]. Cue Redbeard, the rebel leader and Kara's father, and a large group of armed peasants ambushing Freyne, surrounding him, dragging him from his horse, and [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill hacking him to pieces]]. Bonus awesome for him sending the mob back to the battlefield once the king had been mortally wounded.
