Movie Review by MarkSchitts
June 23rd, 2018

Disappointing Dragon Story

When it comes to being considered "agreeable" entertainment for children - 1977's "Pete's Dragon" made its first big mistake (and definitely not its last) by having an almost unendurable running time of 129 minutes.... Sheesh!

Another real problem here was the animated (and clearly mentally-challenged) dragon named Elliot. I mean, he was such a babbling, incoherent, and clueless doofus that I found myself looking forward to the times when he wasn't on screen.

Anyway - From an adult's perspective - "Pete's Dragon" had very little charm or appeal to it. This badly-staged Disney production had "Made-For-TV-Movie" written all over it.

Yep. I should've known better than to have watched this silly nonsense.
