Quotes

Mr. Belafonte: All right. Fine. I didn't see a snake. For heaven's sake, there is no such thing as a giant snake. I must have lost my mind for a second.
Psychiatrist: Everybody makes mistakes. I'm glad you're seeing clearly.
[to the guard]
Psychiatrist: You may untie him.
Mr. Belafonte: I hate to say this, but the giant snake is in this hospital right now. Look out your window.
Psychiatrist: Tie him again. He has to be hospitalized.

Dragon wars sucked
17 September 2007 | by s-hull_1990See all my reviews

This movie was horrible.

They didn't develop any of the characters at all and the storyline was played out horribly. It was a definite sleeper. You'd expect the action scenes on a movie like this to be its strong points but D-Wars surprises you with even a let down in that department.

Also, the acting was just a step above the level of a low budget porno flick. And I seriously mean that.

I was actually happy to see the end credits on this one cause it was just that bad!!! Please, whatever you do people, don't waste your time and money on a crappy movie like D-Wars.
