The film didn't promise anything more than it delivered.

DRAGON WARS knows it's dumb, and just has fun. It's my new guilty pleasure!

A movie without a single redeeming quality that we highly recommend.

The painful English-language sequences almost don't matter: The rock-'em-sock-'em monster melees truly are spectacular, even if the images sometimes seem more hazy than tactile, as is typical of digital special effects.

We've all heard of movies so bad they're good, and some folks have them on DVD, in captivity. But how many of us have seen one in the wild?

It is such a breathless, delirious stew, it's impossible not to be entertained, provided -- this is crucial -- you have a sense of humor.

Shim's picture is suitable for youngsters and delivers enough goofy fun to keep adults with fond memories of Destroy All Monsters (1968) from getting restless.

It's admittedly pretty dumb, but in the end its fierce commitment to its own goofy ideas is oddly admirable.

One of those films that I would swerve into on the SciFi Channel late one night and stay up until the wee hours of the morning to watch without feeling guilty at all.

By no reasonable reckoning can the film be considered a competent piece of cinematic storytelling, yet somehow the movie transcends its silly screenplay with over-the-top action and visually imaginative battles.

This one really should have been immediately relegated to the discount bin.

Takes such leaps and bounds of mediocrity and utterly nonsensical storylines that it ends up being a jumbled mess...

The concept here is fun -- good and evil dragons of ancient Korean legend do battle in modern-day Los Angeles -- but a lazy and amateurish script and embarrassingly hollow acting hobble it right out of the gate.

When they decide to sic [those monsters] on downtown Los Angeles, the movie turns shockingly watchable. Until that sequence, there was no evidence that anybody involved with this laughable fantasy knew what he or she was doing.

The rampaging-monsters flick Dragon Wars loudly speaks the universal language of effects-laden mayhem. Unfortunately, it is also fluent in the laughable dialogue of a million bad fantasy flicks.
