Like Transformers, but with Creatures

on 12/9/2007

Based on a old Korean Legend, Dragon Wars has excellent CGI and great creature designes as well as a worthy storyline. I found it to be a mix between "Godzilla" and "Transformers." An all-round solid film!

Product Overview

Meet Buraki, the vicious, 200-meter long Imoogi serpent from ancient Korea. His army includes giant lizards with missile launchers, flying dragons, soldiers bred for evil and mega-intelligent dinosaurs. Together, they will destroy Los Angeles and possibly the world unless reincarnated warriors Ethan and Sarah can outrun them and resurrect the Good Imoogi, Buraki's ancient nemesis. Dragon Wars reveals every last detail of Earth's greatest battle - a war you'll only believe when you see it for yourself!

Review ...the new Korean monster movie Dragon Wars is thoroughly entertaining garbage of the highest order. Completely inane in terms of content but exhilarating as a goofy orgy of destruction, Dragon Wars is the kind of movie for which the term "guilty pleasure" was invented. It's one of those films where the stuff that's good is enjoyable, and the stuff that's bad is equally enjoyable--in fact, the cornball dialogue and nonsensical plotting make the movie more fun, not less...The most impressive thing about the movie's lengthy wars of the title is that they're visually, if not narratively, coherent--explaining the logic of the premise takes some work, but Hyung Rae Shim always keeps us acclimated as to who is fighting who, and it makes for a viscerally charged climax as satisfying as what one would find in any of the numerous films that Dragon Wars rips off. In the end the movie's pleasures are pretty simple, as Dragon Wars' greatest value is as an outlet for people who just want to see a lot of shit get smashed to bits--it's admittedly pretty dumb, but in the end its fierce commitment to its own goofy ideas is oddly admirable.

Andy Webster, The New York Times It is such a breathless, delirious stew, it's impossible not to be entertained, provided -- this is crucial -- you have a sense of humor.
Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide ...suitable for youngsters and delivers enough goofy fun to keep adults with fond memories of Destroy All Monsters (1968) from getting restless.
