Korean entertainment mogul Shim Hyung-rae’s family-friendly feature combines Star Wars–influenced fantasy, Asian folktales and military hardware into one giant monster mash. Korea, 1507: A holy warrior and his love, who can transform gargantuan serpents into powerful celestial dragons, kill themselves to keep her heavenly mojo from a very bad snake. Los Angeles, 2007: Reincarnated as a TV reporter (Behr) and a gym bunny (Brooks), the star-crossed lovers again match wits with the evil reptile. Cue the firefight between military choppers and flying lizards over downtown L.A.! It’s dumb, but no dumber than Transformers and loads more fun than the 1998 Godzilla.
