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.

This movie was awesome because for once the action and story don't revolve around New York City which has been the epicenter of alien invasions, superhero showdowns, and monster attacks for years. Also the dragons and creatures featured in this movie actually do Dragons justice and do the appropiate ammount of damage and destruction you would expect from such a storied creature. Just an overall great monster movie that isnt too graphic for kids and the small love story within the movie never gets in the way of the epic fight scenes.

D-War is a bad movie if it is being compared to other great movies. The actors were not so great and the story was too weak even though the director tried to fascinate the plot with some mysteriousness of the Korean dragon folklore. The movie, however, has some typical B-movie qualities that some fans may enjoy. There is no doubt that Mr. Shim incorrectly included some heavy drama in the film while he should have focused more on the pure entertainments aspects. Yet, the movie serves its purpose. Who needs an art when you have two great looking dragons dueling?

I admit I only rented this movie because of my love for Jason Behr. But I also thought that the plot sounded interesting. The movie however was so horrible that I couldn't even make myself watch the whole thing. The "dragon" looked like something a kid would think was real, it looked so fake. I would not recommend that anyone waste their time viewing this movie.
