This was truly, desperately, unbelievably bad, Unsympathetic characters, oddball and un-engaging story, and terribly slow.
A spin on the old Ahab and the white whale fable (except the whale is a white dragon). Not really a movie, more of a made for television event; that is how the acting and story came off as. As a TV series this could of got 3 or 4 of seasons and would have been viewable if more of the underlying plot (dragon oil running the world) and characters were explored further. The constant rhetoric of Ahab's obsession with the white dragon became old, and the dragon battles were lame (the few that there were). Not a Blockbuster by any stretch of the imagination.
So bad. Lacks imagination. Would give half a star if I could. It's one thing to use an old story to inspire your own, but to just blatantly rip it off by swapping a whale for a dragon, it's way too bad.
I wish I had read the reviews. Give this one a miss!
ok action but bit like a telemovie
Don't waste your time watching this, delete it from your queue! I was asleep after 30 minutes. Shocker!
Yeah pretty bad, but turn your brain off and it won't bleed.
I really don't see what people saw in this film, poor acting but beautiful landscape and how did they have a motorised vehicle when they are still lighting their lamps with dragon oil ??????????????
Stupidest movie Ive seen in along time
This is so bad it should come with a warning.
Awful awful awful. Couldn't send the disc back fast enough.
I really don't think this film deserves such negative comments. It certainly is not 5 star quality, it is a bit slow and I agree the acting could be better, although I have watched worse acting. The concept is interesting although it could have been better done, but still worth a watch in my opinion.
Terrible!! Don't bother....
This was a sad effort, hard to watch. Poor Acting, Directing and Script. A real shame as the movie as an Idea had great potential.
A very poor retelling of Moby Dick, with a dragon instead of a whale. Also one of Danny Glover's worst performances.
A rather long and boring plot to what should have been a good movie. Very disappointing.
Its Moby Dick all over again, in this movie it is the white dragon they are hunting not the white whale. if i wanted to watch a story that is exactly on the same lines of Moby dick i would of hired Moby Dick.
Boring Boring Boring
good adaptation of an old story although acting could have been better but still worth a look.
Waste of time................don't bother!
Would have been nice to know this was just a re-working of the Moby Dick story. Had a few scenes that were bordering on okay. Rest is a snorefest.
another pommie disaster movie ............. (the movie itself that is!)
don't bother.............. again
Not too sure about this one. They have taken the story of Moby Dick the white whale and captain Ahab and substituted dragons in its place. It was enjoyable and easy to sit through but only three stars for this one
Shocking movie. Do not get this out - you'll regret it.
Very disappointed with this movie, no where near as good as we expected
This movie does not go anywhere, very disappointing
This is a hour and a half I will never get back, boring.
This one wasn't so good. 3 stars maximum. The idea probably wasn't bad, but it lacks action and momentum. maybe because it is a generally low budget movie.
