You may like this if you liked: Merlin and the War of the Dragons (Mark Atkins, 2008), Mega Shark Vs Giant Octopus (Jack Perez, 2009), Nazis at the Centre of the Earth (Joseph J. Lawson, 2012) or any of the other movies produced by The Asylum (there is a lot of them): http://www.imdb.com/list/SlHs1k_kFWE/?ref_=tt_rls_0

A travelling group of Knights Templar save a village from attacking pirates and kill all the pirates. However, due to a spell cast by an innocent villager they are all destined to turn into gargoyles which proves a little annoying for them. It is only due to their valiant and courageous hearts that the curse has not taken over, but it is only a matter of time. To fight the curse, and conveniently save the world as well they have to go on a quest to destroy some all great and powerful and obviously evil wizard dragon before it is too late.

Firstly, let’s establish the facts: This is one of the many films produced from The Asylum, they can usually be found on the SyFy channel or Movies for Men. So, we have: A ridiculous title, an even more ridiculous story, wooden acting, extremely clunky dialogue and mega drive standard CGI.

In fact, there is very little point in even reviewing this film; it is only due to some moral obligation I have set myself to review every single film I watch that I am writing this. Of course, for the reasons I just listed Dragon Crusaders is an absolute turd of a film. It would be easy to go on a rant, but I will refrain from that temptation. The fact is that Asylum films know their place, all those involved surely know what they are making, and these films that they make tend to actually make a profit, so fair play to them. Calling these films B movies is probably too much of a compliment, maybe Z movie, but they certainly deserve to be a genre in their own right. As long as you know what you are getting in too, have a strong alcoholic beverage at your side, then films like Dragon Crusaders are more entertaining and certainly funnier (intentionally or not) than anything Adam Sandler or Nancy Meyers ever produce. Also, I would rather watch anything produced by The Asylum than Taken 2 again. There. I have said it!
