Editorial Reviews

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Satire or Monumental Disaster? January 14, 2008
Format:DVD
I am a 56-year-old movie buff and right off let me confess, I love this movie.

In my opinion this movie was never intended to be taken seriously at all. Consider that in the first exposition scenes you have not one, but 2 entirely different characters in different scenes say directly to the narrator in the middle of his attempted explanation of this nonsensical tale "what are you talking about?" I don't believe this was accidental folks, this is called comedy.

One thing to be aware of when you're watching this movie is that the director is the most popular comedian in the entire country of Korea. He gained his fame and fortune as comedic actor. In other words his entire professional career has been based on making people laugh.

I think most people who are reviewing this movie are completely missing the comedy. Frankly I found the movie to be hilarious.

How anyone could possibly take this movie seriously after seeing the Darth Vader character stupidly get run over by a car 2 times in a row is beyond me. That was obviously comedy (and very funny).

Yes it is entirely overblown. Layers of complete absurdity are piled with additional layers of even more absurdity. Which makes it a perfect satire of the Star Wars, Lord of the rings, Harry Potter and all of the rest of the overly pompous mega-movies. If there is a big overblown scene in one of those movies you're going to see a similar scene in this one.

A few examples. The Gungan Army scene from Star Wars episode 4 -- only this time the Army with the cute, smiling dinosaur critters with the weapons on their backs are the bad guys. And these smiling dinosaurs are wreaking total havoc on Los Angeles fighting the LAPD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dragon sized Fun March 20, 2008
Format:DVD
Dont listen to the fan-boys and convention geeks!
They were convinced that they would hate this movie before they even saw it. This movie is alot of fun. Sure, it's silly and dumb but so what, it's about dragons fighting in Los Angeles for pete's sake!
This reminds m of alot of the Sci-Fi flicks that came out in the early eighties such as "Beastmaster" and "Sword and the Sorcerer" the special effects are great and the action scenes are awesome. Grab a 12 pack and a box of popcorn and just enjoy this cute little action packed flick. It's not going to change your life but it will give you a 90 minute smile!
This would make a great double feature with "The Host"- enjoy!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit Sweet and Sour January 9, 2008
Format:DVD
Ok, I gave it four stars cuz no one else had rated it 4 stars yet.

Honestly, I didn't think this was that bad a movie (given what others posted) - I enjoyed it - least most of it (bought & watched the DVD). I think this would a been a great movie if it wasn't for a few things. Number one problem (IMO) was the lead male character - I don't know if it was the actor (Jason Behr, I think) or just the character he was playing, but he just seemed to suck the life out of every scene he was in. I think if his character had a bit more personality, the movie would have been a lot better. The editor could have done a bit more with the pacing of the movie - it is a bit uneven in places. Felt like you were hitting speed bumps during some parts.

What I did like: The special effects were great! Reminded me of the CGI from the latest Star Wars movies (wouldn't be surprised if some of the same people worked on this movie). Could a used a bit of gore though - the creatures were a bit too "clean". I also liked the ending - especially the type of dragon that the Imoogi turns into - wasn't expecting that.

Would have liked to seen a "behind-the-scenes" documentry on the making of the special effects.

1.0 out of 5 stars Attack of the Mythical Reptiles! November 1, 2007
Here's a piece of advice: if you have a movie called "Dragon Wars," it's probably not a good idea to save the dragon footage for the last five minutes. The rest of the film does showcase a number of other creatures, such as winged dinosaur-hybrids and things that vaguely resemble rhinos. We even get to see gigantic snakes that have the potential to become dragons. But where are the actual dragons? Why keep us waiting until the end? This is but one example of how hopelessly incompetent this film is; "Dragon Wars"--or "D-War," or whatever it's called--is an attempt but not an actual end result, an absolute mess filled with unconvincing special effects, horrendous performances, and a plot I neither understood nor cared about.

The film opens with a Los Angeles news reporter named Ethan Kendrick (Jason Behr) trying to get the latest scoop on an explosion. Not much is known about what happened; all anyone can determine is that a gigantic, odd-looking animal scale is found under the soil. From what animal, no one knows. But whatever it comes from, seeing it triggers a number of flashback sequences, the first of which takes place fifteen years ago, when Ethan was only a boy. He and his father enter a local antique shop and meet Jack (Robert Forester), the elusive owner. He notices a strange sight; as Ethan approaches a wooden chest, it opens and reveals a brilliant white light. This signals to Jack that Ethan a destined young boy.

With me so far? Because it only gets worse from here. After sending the father away (by faking a heart attack and begging for help), Jack tells Ethan of an ancient myth that dates back to sixteenth-century Korea. Apparently, titanic serpents called Inoogi are destined to become dragons.

Not Jason Behr's best work as an actor, but that might have something more to do with the script. Overall it is an imaginative piece of creation. The graphics were not cheesy. Read more

This movie wasn't amazing, but it was cheap and I like dragons, so I thought I'd give it a try. It was entertaining for the couple of hours it lasted.
