3.0 out of 5 stars From Korea with Love; Strictly for Fans of This Genre December 9, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
"Reptilian" is known in South Korea as "Yonggary," and though the entire cast speak English, and the setting (of unnamed city) seems American, it is in fact a Korean production, and the history of Yonggary goes back to the release of the original version in 1967. This means "Reptilian" is a remake of that one, and like Hollywood-made Godzilla movie, it is updated by CGI techonology. The plot is simple. Yonngary is a deadly monster that becomes a threat to human beings, destroying whatever comes in its sight, and controlled by aliens from the outer space.
You will see many familiar elements that you might have seen in other monster movies such as Godzilla series, and besides, most unique soldiers in the world -- they can fly and shoot cannons! Frankly the plot is weak, the CGI looks unusual, and acting is ... never mind, if you love this genre, you wouldn't care. You see a doctor (played by Harrison Young, elder Ryan in "Saving Private Ryan") who, as usual, gives a warning about the coming danger of Yonngary, but nobody listens, and a big monster starts to destroy, and on and on.
So this is strictly for the fans of the genre. If you're, you will have a good time. And please could anyone release the original "Yonngary"? I like the monster.

3.0 out of 5 stars If Hyundai Made Godzilla Movies... June 23, 2002
I purchased this movie not knowing anything about it, and overall it is fun, but the plot has more holes than OJ Simpson's alibi and as for the acting, it really has to be seen to be believed (a friend of mine threw a "bad movie" contest last night, and "Reptilian" was my entry...after everyone saw the first scene of this film, I was the unanimous winner!). The English dialogue is so stiffly delivered that I wondered if this was done deliberately so the Korean language overdubs (for the home market) would more closely match the actors' mouths.
In any event, the effects are pretty cool, and what is a big monster film without good visuals? The redesigned Yongary was clearly influenced by the Tristar-reengineered Godzilla - he has a muscular, kind of reptile/humanoid look (but he did retain the ability to breathe fire, while Godzilla was dumbed down). I actually liked the original Yongary film and hoped the remake would stick to the original storyline (the aliens in "Reptilian" are more a distraction than a useful plot device; they have another monster at their disposal but choose to 'resurrect' Yongary instead). You just might like this film, warts and all.

1.0 out of 5 stars Revoltian August 30, 2003
If you are a fan of the old Japanese Godzilla movies you might just enjoy this rip-off. Most everyone else with brain cells intact will cringe, unless they find the dialogue so hideously bad that its inadvertently funny. I have to admit to roaring over the lines "The bones are from a non-Carbon based life form. Carbon dating makes it 200 million years old!" Honestly, this movie has the WORST dialogue I have EVER come across in a film. And it's not just one or two howlers, but its consistently awful.
So, the plot's stolen--Godzilla meets Mothra or some such, with space aliens thrown in for fun. Nonsensical things happen throughout, and one of the monsters can even attack the other without his head! The effects aren't entirely terrible, just mostly so. The acting is as wooden as a casket. Dialogue stupid. Film awful. See only for its camp value. Even better, avoid entirely--your life will be enriched.
Not the worst movie in the world, but close.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Worst Movie Ever!!! April 17, 2005
By Publius
We came across this movie after getting a whole bunch of movies for free that the local rental store was throwing out to make room for DVD's. When we first popped it in, it was so bad we just about turned it off, but the acting and script was SO bad, we found ourselves rolling with laughter! We decided to watch the whole thing, and it only got better!! This movie is, seriously, the funniest movie I have ever seen by virtue of the terrible scripting, acting, special effects, plot -- everything! From the ever-grinning captain, to the action figure-like aliens, to the comically evil archaeologists -- it never stops! We have introduced this movie to countless friends and acquiantances, and it has become a classic! Shortly, it is the BEST bad movie ever. We have probably watched it 20 times or more, and we find something new every time!!! A MUST SEE!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Watch out Godzilla, here comes Yonngary! August 23, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
The remains of a dinosaur named Yonngary and 50 times bigger than T. Rex is reanimated and controlled by evil aliens in an attempt to destroy the world. It has what I'd consider some pretty darn good special effects, but the acting from some of the cast members was so so (maybe they spent all their moola on the special effects and had to skimp on the actors), but I still had a blast watching it and it more than satisfied my monster movie craving. Big stomping lizardy fun!

This is a poor film in almost every regard, but I admired that it didn't skimp on the monster destruction footage.

Though this film has a monster named Yongary in it and it was made in Korea, that's pretty much where the similiarities end with the original Yongary. Read more
