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.

America does just fine making cringingly terrible special-effect extravaganzas, so back off, South Korea!

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

The movie that Ed Wood would have made in the era of CGI, complete with awkward editing, wooden acting, and a story that becomes impossible to care about at all.

This is not a movie to watch for escapism. This is a movie to watch with a bunch of friends and heckle mercilessly.

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.

Ripped off special-effects concepts, unbelievably bad acting, and plot holes big enough for an Imoogi to slither through.

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.

Destined to go down in history as one of cinema's most blunderingly, catastrophically bad big-budget films of the last few decades.

There's not a spark of sense here.

...the only real entertainment comes from watching Robert Forster fruitlessly trying to explain the difference between an Imoogi, a Buraki and a Yuh Yi Joo.

This one's for connoisseurs of the "totally preposterous crap" school of fantasy cinema. You know who you are: You have all the Warlock sequels on Laserdisc [and] the complete Leprechaun series on DVD.

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

The dialog sounds like it was written by those guys who translate operating instruction manuals from Chinese to English.

A feast of A-grade f/x married to a Z-grade, irony-free script.

This monster film makes even the remake of Godzilla look good.

The prospect of being a human sacrifice for a roaring, scaly, 600-foot-long monster isn't so appealing.
