"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.

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.

Reptilian - CGI be Damned. A CGI dino-monster fights CGI helicopters in what has to be the worst scene in monster movie history. When the CGI dino rises from the CGI ocean, a lot of CGI water splashes around. At times there is so much CGI going on, you think you're watching a Saturday morning cartoon.

This film is touted as a Korean Kaiju film but its all American actors and settings (NY?). Plus the American military is called to save the day and what a bunch of bungling buffoons these guys are. The one bright spot was, the film actually had a decent storyline as far as giant monster movies go, but this too, was ruined by some of the corniest and bad dialogue I have ever heard. Oh, and did I tell you about the robot aliens, lets not even go there.

The backgrounds have wrong lighting compared to the monster, Sometimes the scale is off. This movie was so fake looking it became an annoyance to watch. I've seen better animations on you tube by some kids making comedy videos in their backyards. I would much rather see toy model helicopters with wires attached than the helicopter scene in this movie. Note to film makers, CGI helicopters never work!!!! Also, CGI explosions are lame! If you can't make a scale model, blow it up with some M-80's and film it in slow motion - then cut the explosions out of the script. Last note. A guy in a rubber suit would have been a welcome sight for this film. Two thumbs down!!!

The actors [Stink], the monster [stinks] and the plot [stinks]! That's why this movie is so great!! But the acting is what makes this movie soo funny!! if you like stupid movies that you can laugh at for hours this is a movie for you!! ( just think about the dialog being about big butt's- if you have seen this movie you'll get my point... ;) very funny.)

Love the actors in this movie! "OKAY, OKAY"! Cool scenes in the cave with mega-bones and red smog.I also like the very beginning where the credits come up. I try to find the names on the wall before they appear. Pure camouflage! Awesome battle at the end with another goliath creature.

You've got to like science fiction and satires to appreciate this movie. And, you have to keep in mind the point in its development that CGI was when this film was made. Now, with all that in mind, here's how this flick affected me. I found it a lot of fun! I can't figure out whether the makers of "Reptilian" were serious or rather intended it to be a spoof. And, therein, lies its appeal. Is it kinda 'corny'? "Yes". If the producers were trying to make a serious monster movie, then this thing is bad enough to make it laughable. But, if it was made that way on purpose, it has a degree of subtlety to it that, to me, makes it a really cool satire. Having seen it, would I buy it again? Yes, And I've found it to be a movie that I have enjoyed watching more than once. As an average movie fan, with no insight into the finer points of the film industry, that's always the standard I use when deciding if I think a movie is good or not.
