This movie picks up where the series ended; well not exactly where it ended. Instead of continuing where we were when the series ended, we are now two years later. Blake Carrington has just been released from prison and he is trying to reclaim his empire. And he is also reunited with his beloved Krystle, who until recently was in a coma for sometime. For years he has suspected a foreign consortium of being behind his downfall, and it is true, and these men have brainwashed Krystle to kill him. Written by
The original had a really tragic ending and it left some subplots open. So, then this addition to the Dynasty saga came along and gave us a cheesy happy ending that looked like something out of Sesame Street...
I loved the original series, but I watched it as a little boy. I remember how after every Wednesday we talked about it in school. "Did you see what Alexis did?", "Wow! You saw what happened to Dex?" and so on. The series was wild and a little nasty, especially the immortal Alexis/Kristle cat fights.
We get another cat fight here too, but it was nothing like the classic fights. *sigh*. The cheesy ending caught me off guard, but it was nice. Only for Dynasty fans, as people who never watched the series will be a little bored.
Actually Dynasty fans will also get bored at some points, but it's still nice to have a reunion with those character and find out what happened.
