  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
"Dragons: Metal Ages," the sequel to "Dragons: Fire And Ice," is based on the Mega Bloks toy line and is sure to delight fans of all ages. The mythical medieval story of dragons and kingdoms continues, with armies clashing and worlds threatened to be conquered. (Tricia Spears)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD picture exhibits computer-animated imagery that can be quite vibrant, with fire and lava that pop from the screen and dark, shadowy locations. The picture offers sharp and detailed images that should certainly delight younger audiences. Rare pixel breakup and occasional shimmering details are noticed. (Suzanne Hodges)
