2013 / Director. Kevin O'Neill.
Review by Glenn Cochrane.
The ethos behind this website is to find the good within the bad but when it comes to DRACANO, I admit that I am still struggling. I suppose to it's credit it has an attention-grabbing title and movie poster. Sadly that's about as far as I can stretch the compliments. Usually this brand of cheesy B-movie is right up my alley, however DRACNO was a test of will power. The premise of the film is that a series of volcanic eruptions around the globe release a flock (is that what you call a mass of dragons?) of fire breathing dragons, which wreak havoc on the world. A bunch of bad actors rally together and try to find a way to stop them. From the first frame it's clear that this is below even the stodgiest of stodgy movie. Hell it makes SHARKNADO look like Champagne. The film stars Corin Nemec (Parker Lewis Can't Lose) and that's always reason for concern. He's becoming a staple player in these types of films, although I've had fun with some of his other ones like DRAGON WASPS and SAND SHARKS. The concept of DRACANO is a winner but it's lack of vision (even for this brand of movie) is non-existent. The CGI is appalling beyond appalling and the overall cinematography looks like it was shot with a camera from Aldi. Most of you readers know that I have a huge tolerance for schlock and so it says a lot when I would rather singe my eyeballs with cigarette butts. From the poster art you would be forgiven for assuming this was an Asylum film... it is not. The Asylum looks like Universal compared with this compost.
