Synopsis


Dragon Wars
Korean director Shim Hyung-Rae's monster movie D-War begins with a lengthy prologue, in which an antique dealer named Jack (Robert Forster) watches a young patron, Ethan Kendrick (Cody Erens) get zapped with a force emanating from a chest in his shop. Realizing the significance of this event, Jack bequeaths a medal to the boy, and speaks candidly to him of mystical events that transpired a half-millennium earlier. In a bygone era, it seems, giant creatures called Buraki roamed the land, morphing from serpents into dragons and back again, and equipped with a massive army of formidable creatures. An ancient warrior-apprentice saved the life of his beloved from these monstrosities; the warrior's spirit was eventually contained in the aforementioned chest, and it has now filled Ethan. Jack gives Ethan an enchanted red pendant and advises him to see out the contemporary incarnation of the ancient warrior's intended, who can be recognized via a red dragon tattoo on her shoulder. When the woman reaches her 20th birthday, it seems, she and Ethan - joining forces - will be able to reincarnate Imoogi as dragons. That woman is in fact Sarah (Amanda Brooks); she and Ethan do encounter one another, but it isn't long before the Buraki serpent and all of his enormous minions resurface and decide to lay waste to the City of Angels, worming their way through the town as they look for the chosen pair. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

    Just plain bad.

    I LOVE dragons and dragon movies, and I'm a big fan of sci-fi and monster movies, too, so this seemed totally perfect to check out. My sister, father and I went to see it in theaters on it's opening weekend, and the fact that there were only about 5 other people there with us should have given fair warning. The acting was bad enough, but the plot is chopped up, scattered, poorly constructed and just plain lame. Finally, near the end of the film, some CG action began to take place, but it was mortifying. The creatures are well-constructed, but their animations are just terrible. Fun part was a dinosaur walking into mist / smoke, and instead of fading into it, appears to walk on it up into the sky. After that, about 10 minutes of wordless shrieking occurs, including the giant "Dragons" (big CG snakes, really) just hissing and screeching. When it was finally over, we thought it had been 3 hours, but only about an hour and a half. It's the only movie I have ever wanted to walk out of. It's hard to really enjoy even as just a "Bad Movie" movie. Avoid unless you are masochistic.

    What a disappointment

    Being a huge monster movie fan, I got all excited when I first saw the trailers for this movie. They showed these dragons attacking the city and the military initiating a full-scale attack. Little did I know that action would only encompass maybe ten minutes tops. The rest of the film is just a mishmash of nonsense -- part Harry Potter/part Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon/part Anaconda (only with worse special effects). Nothing in this movie makes sense. Period.

    I buy movies to watch the special effects, and hopefully they have a story line. This has a few minutes of special effects, but it cannot decide if it is Star Wars, Transformers, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, the story line is so chopped up it is a major effort not to get up and walk out. As for the actual Dragon wars, it should be titled Andaconda vs Dragon for one very short scene. This movie is just bad, no other way to describe it.

    My wife bought this movie for me because i love dragon and sci fi movie but this movie was the absolut worst movie i have ever seen in my life. Everything from the acting to the special effects were bad. Instead of the big screen it should have been on the sci fi channel at 1am. Save yourself the trouble and don't buy this movie, don't even rent it."

    I was waiting for this movie to come out on DVD. I am a fan of Dragon movies such as Dragon slayer, Dragonheart & Eragon. This is a big budget movie with very bad story line, Bad acting, unknown actors very disappointing. Kids will probably like it. The effects is okey.
