Dragon Wars

Buraki, una sanguinaria serpiente de 200 metros, acompañada por un auténtico ejército de dragones y dinosaurios, está a punto de invadir el mundo, pues resulta prácticamente imposible frenar su avance. Intentarán vencerles Ethan y Sarah, que son la reencarnación de dos héroes legendarios. Para lograr su objetivo, Ethan y Sarah deberán resucitar al Imoogi, un monstruo al servicio del bien, legendario enemigo de Buraki. Lujosa cinta coreana, protagonizada por actores estadounidenses, que aspiraba a arrasar en todo el mundo... sin conseguirlo. La leyenda coreana de que parte la trama contiene los suficientes elementos crípticos como para despistar al espectador mejor dispuesto. El amplísimo presupuesto se nota sobre todo en la ambientación y los efectos especiales, especialmente en la vistosa escena de casi un cuarto de hora, en que los monstruos provocan el pánico en las calles de Los Ángeles, con la serpiente enroscada a un gran edificio, o los cazas combatiendo a los dragones al más puro estilo de La guerra de las galaxias. Las armaduras de algunos ejércitos recuerdan a este film y a El Señor de los Anillos. Pero todo este innegable esfuerzo no quita para que el resultado sea fallido, por culpa de una trama hueca, de muy escaso interés.
Esta película está en mi colección por accidente y como tal la he visto pero esperaba algo más...
In a small Korean village, five hundred years ago, a girl named Narin was born carrying the coveted Yeouijoo inside her. The Heavens sent the protector Bochun and his protégé Haram, to ensure that when it came time, Narin was peacefully sacrificed to the pre-determined Good Imoogi. Bochun vigorously trained Haram as a knight, to be prepared for the eventual day when Narin would be delivered to the Good Imoogi. The day the Dark Imoogi, Buraki, and his army destroyed Narin's village looking for the Yeouijoo, Bochun instructed Haram to take her to the Good Imoogi. The young girl and her knight would then fulfill the giant's serpent's destiny by giving it the power to save the world and become a heavenly dragon. By this time, after spending several years together, Haram and Narin had fallen in love. Unable to sacrifice their love to the benevolent Imoogi, they jumped to their deaths together in each other's arms. The Good Imoogi's destiny was unfulfilled and he would have to wait another five hundred years until the next Yeouijoo appears. It is now five hundred years later in present day Los Angeles and the quest for the Imoogi is reborn. Haram and Narin have been reincarnated as Ethan Kendrick and Sarah Daniels whose bond of love remains unsevered. Ethan is an investigative reporter for the local news. He is closely following a series of unexplainable disasters occurring in the area. When a young woman named Sarah is linked to those occurrences, Ethan remembers that an ancient man he met many years before had predicted all of these events . Ethan finds Sarah and helps her escape the wrath of Buraki and his army. Aware that Sarah must sacrifice herself in order to save the city from the Buraki and ensure that the Good Imoogi becomes the Dragon, Ethan tries to convince Sarah that there is another way to battle the Imoogies. Meanwhile, the FBI agent on the case, Frank Campbell, has uncovered the Imoogies' intentions through his own investigations. Campbell is ready to sacrifice Sarah to the demonic animals to save Los Angeles. In the face of chaos and destruction, Ethan and Sarah must decide their own fate - whether to defy the will of heaven once again and let the city be destroyed or deliver Sarah to the Good Imoogi. "
