Dragon Wars

June 9th 2009 12:06
That's right, Dragon Wars!!!!

As nerdy as this sounds, and it does, I am under no illusions about this. This is by far one of the better special effects generated B-grade movies I have ever seen since “Starship Troopers”. The movie starts off in early century China, where it reveals the story of a wise old man and his "apprentice" who are charged by God, to protect a woman bearing the birth mark of a dragon on her shoulder.

This woman is supposed to be sacrificed to a good Ueagiu (spelling may be wrong). Yes, there is also a Bad Ueagiu, who, if he eats this woman, will lay waste to the heavenly Dragon Spirits.

Therefore, their job is to make sure that the good "junior" dragon and not the bad "junior" dragon eats her. Unfortunately, a little thing called love gets involved and the apprentice and the woman throw themselves on to the rocks and die.

Fast forward several hundreds of years, and the two Chinese protectors are miraculously Caucasian and have no martial arts skills. However, the old Cauc-Asian guy, has retained some of his previous magic skills.

Also, the bad guy in this has also gone from being of Asian descent to being Caucasian.

There are some pretty funny scenes in this movie. Watch out for the old lady and the wall scene. It cracks me up every time, and I can't help but laugh now.

Understand this. The acting is not all that good, but not all that bad either. The special effects, I think, are pretty amazing. Also, the final scene is worth sitting through the entire movie.

However, that last comment paints a negative picture of the movie, and I don't intend to do that.

All I can say is watch it.

See the movie??? YES!!!
Rent the movie??? YES!!!
Buy the movie??? YES!!!!
