(at around 1h 5 mins) During the city battle scene, there is a shot of S.W.A.T. team members firing on some flying dragons, who react with fireballs shot back at the officers. During this scene, you can see some of the officers running from the attack, in which a couple actually fly into the air well before the explosion appears on the rooftop. See more »
Comparisons to Boll and Sci-Fi Channel don't apply
This movie was not good. Let's start off with that. But it wasn't a one or two star movie like people are giving it.
Pretty much, the plot is decent. It's something different. It's totally corny and implausible, but it's DRAGON WARS, it's not trying to win any Oscars. to people who say the visual effects are the worst they have seen, PUH-lease. The effects are about on par with Dragonheart and the Godzilla remake. Of course, this means the effects are ten years old, and films like T2 and Jurassic Park still look like they were made last year, but that's beside the point. The effects aren't THAT bad.
The acting is average. Nothing special. Better than Keanu Reeves or Clive Owen. See, what I'm trying to do here is show you that a movie like "Gryphon" or "Raptor Island" or "Alone in the Dark" are much much worse than this. Stop giving unfair comparisons. The last 20 minutes of the movie actually had some good action, and the final battle was great. Lighten up. Just have sit back and MST3K it if you want. But it's cheesy monster mashing fun.
