A crazy old man appears in a war-torn city to correct the misconceptions of the retelling of his adventures.

It's a great fluff fantasy movie. I didn't see it back in the day, so it has no nostalgia for me. Left with what it is at face value, I can't recommend it except for people who like the old 80s style of kids' practical effects fantasy movies.

Dragonborn-twins have drama.

If you like the others in the Dragonheart series, then I suppose this is worth a watch.

Yet another buddy cop movie, but this time instead of <random race> it is an Orc, and instead of </random><random drugs> it's magic.

An adequate movie.

A centuries-old man is embroiled in a sword-fight between other immortals.

This is one of those movies which forged my young self, but I cannot recommend to others. It definitely feels dated, and I doubt its ideas would be particularly shaping to others compared to the other movies created since this one.
