Pete’s Dragon Movie 2016 Review Trailer HD Heartwarming Enjoyable Flim From Disney
A live action remake of the 1977 animated film of the same name, Pete’s Dragon chronicles Pete (Oakes Fegley), a kid who was orphaned in the jungle and was offered protection by a giant green dragon named Eliot. Pete and Eliot were happy to grow up away from civilisation, so it is quite a shock to forest ranger Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard) when she finds the boy alive and well. Things take a darker turn when Gavin (Karl Urban), a logger decides to use Pete to capture the fabled dragon.
If the above description is any indication, Pete’s Dragon is a fairly simple story, but that is what works in its favor. Director David Lowery, who made the excellent Aint Them Bodies Saints a couple of years ago weaves some surprisingly thought-provoking and often meditative visuals here. It’s a far cry from the ‘cartoonish’ nature of the original film, especially in the sequences where there’s danger at hand. Most entertaining is the buddy relationship between Pete and his dragon their playful montage is neatly utilized as a means to be afraid when the story seems to drift them apart. And if you’ve ever had a pet you’re in for giant laughs and also about of onions near your eyes during one particular sequence.
