One of the worst, if not THE worst, movies I've ever seen
Feb 20, 2010
And that's really saying something. I didn't think it could get any worse than Sahara (Widescreen Edition), but man oh man was I wrong? I actually went out of my way to go see this movie because the previews made it look like something I was in the mood to see, a mindless action flick with dragons. I love dragon movies, and I was really in the mood for some action, but NO! There is NO action in this god forsaken movie. I can honestly say that the $7 I spent on my ticket were the worst $7 I've ever spent ON ANYTHING!
For a movie called Dragon Wars, there's one thing that's noticeably absent throughout almost the entire movie, the dragons. The entire first 3/4ths of this movie center around some mindless plot from ancient Korea that is so needlessly complicated that I literally fell asleep while watching. Some giant snake wants to go to heaven, so it needs to eat a Korean girl with a dragon tattoo on her shoulder but she gets away and dies so he needs to wait another 500 years for her to come back alive... in LA? Huh? And the snake thing is already there waiting for her? How did it know she was there? For that matter, how could a giant snake sneak around LA, slither onto rooftops of crowded buildings, and eat an elephant from a zoo, without anyone seeing it? Hell, at one point it charges down a crowded street and then disappears without a trace. Yeah, right.
Finally, in the last 20 minutes or so of the movie, I finally got to see a battle with dragons and, uh, giant rhino things on one side and the US military on the other, and I have to admit that its not that bad, but it only lasts about five minutes and then goes back to the brain dead plot. Come on, the only reason I went to see this movie was because I wanted some mindless violence and dragon battles. Is that so much to ask for?
Don't even get me started on the acting, the script, or the effects; I'd never finish this review if I tried to explain just how bad they were. Let's just say that I had to watch this movie again, I'd probably stab myself in the knee just to dull the pain. Apparently this is a blockbuster in Korea; I sure hope I never have to find out what's considered a bad movie over there.
