Trivia

The music associated with Muraki and his army makes extensive use of the "Dies irae" melody, a medieval chant traditionally used in ceremonies for the dead and, since the nineteenth century, in contexts evoking the macabre and supernatural. See more »

Goofs

"Older" Ethan's eyes are brown, or perhaps dark green. In the scene where Ethan as a young boy is looking into the light from the magical chest, you can clearly see that his eyes are blue-green. This is most evident later in the same scene during the transformation from young Ethan to older Ethan. See more »

If you are under 13 or above 13 and intoxicated...
18 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you are under 13 or above 13 and pretty intoxicated, you'll enjoy D-war. If you are a seriously dedicated fan of all kinds of brainless action films, you'll enjoy D-war. Otherwise, don't bother! I saw the movie today with my nephews and 3 of their friends. They really loved it and that made me feel good. After the movie was over, all the kids(my nephews and their friends)could not stop thanking me for taking them to the theater.

The CG is good. Acting and directing are horrible. Storyline is extremely simple. But, since the half of the audience was kids, they were screaming, shouting and cheering every time the dragons appeared on the screen. This made the viewing experience far more exciting than it should have been.

It's a good movie to take your kids to, but except for the final battle sequence, D-War is disappointing. I give this film 7 out of 10 mainly because the kids loved it so much.
