Review: AGE OF THE DRAGONS (Blu-ray+DVD Combo Pack)
AGE OF THE DRAGONS isn’t just another dragon movie, it’s an adaptation of Herman Melville’s classic novel Moby Dick set in a medieval realm and it’s pretty cool!
The movie is directed by Ryan Little and has a great cast that includes Danny Glover, Vinnie Jones, Corey Sevier, Larry Bagby, Kepa Kruse, Sofia Pernas and Dave Morgan.
Age of the Dragons follows a heavily scarred Captain Ahab (Glover) who is obsessed on chasing down the killer white dragon that left him mentally and physically scarred years ago. We watch Ahab and his crew hunt hunt down dragons until they finally meet up and do battle with this giant white killer which absolutely looks amazing! Ishmael, his friend Queequeg and Ahab’s adopted daughter Rachel join in on the journey that eventually reveals a few secrets that show Ahab’s cowardly past, his true character and how insane his obsession over this white dragon has made him over the years. In the ultimate showdown, lines are crossed and decisions had to be made while Ahab battles it out one last time with this huge fire-breathing beast. It’s kind of a battle for redemption as well.
We all pretty much know this story except this time it’s with really cool looking dragons and one really huge white dragon (instead of a while whale). Ahab is creepy and all of the characters are easy to get into and follow, some more than others. I think it’s pretty creative to twist the Moby Dick legend into this dragon quest that really is a fun watch with great special effects! The best thing about the movie is definitely the cool looking dragons!
Bottom line is, Age of the Dragons is a really cool movie with some of the best looking dragons I’ve seen in a movie in a really long time! This Blu-ray+DVD Combo Pack drops on July 24th and is definitely recommended!
