A very, very generic creature feature...
18 December 2016 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Right from the very moment that you see the cover of the movie, see who stars in it and read the synopsis, you just know that this is going to be one of those ultra low-budget creature features that will make you cringe uncontrollably as you watch it.

However, every now and again one or two of these creature features do manage to impress and rise above the less than mediocre permeation that tend to ooze from these movies. "Dracano" just wasn't one of those movies.

No, this was a very generic and stereotypical one even by the usual standards that the vast majority of these movies come by. So, yes, your expectations to the movie will surely be beached along with any proper entertainment value.

I decided to stick with the movie to the very end, just to see if it actually would surprise at any point throughout the 1 hour and 31 minutes it was running. It did not, however. No surprise there.

The story is about a professor who is banned from the school where he teach and banned from teaching all together, because he is blamed for something which his project didn't cause. This does not deter him from following the leads to investigate further into the strange occurrences that take place alongside the violent eruptions of volcanic activity around the world.

Yeah, "Dracano" offers nothing new to the genre, and it actually just plots into autopilot from the very beginning, and it never strays away from that awful predictable course it ventured forth on.

The effects in "Dracano" were mildly adequate. I have seen worse effects in creature features, so at least that counted for something in favor of the movie. But don't get your hopes up for any effects that will bedazzle or impress you in any shape, way or fashion. But it seemed that there were no direction between the actors and actresses and where they should look, as to where the CGI would appear, much less where they should aim and shoot.

And as for the acting, well, let's just be kind and say that you know what you are getting, since this movie is starring Corin Nemec. Now, I am not saying that he is a bad actor, but you know exactly what you will get and exactly what to expect from him.

There are far better movies available that revolve around draconic creatures and such. And there really is no valid point for pressing any recommendation for anyone to sit down and watch "Dracano", unless you absolutely have nothing else at all to watch.

"Dracano" managed to scrape together a meager three out of ten stars rating from me.
