There's a difference between personal attacks and having a negative opinion of someone's work. If (for example) MouthForWar said something personally insulting there would be a problem, but he (and everyone else) has every right to state his opinion of Hyung Rae Shim's movie and talent as a filmmaker.

I also wouldn't hold a fan film to the same production standards as a studio picture because they're made under totally different conditions. If a fan movie is made with intelligence and heart it should be easy to overlook imperfections.

For the record, the production budget for DRAGON WARS was actually around $33 million-- still three times higher than most Korean films but less than half of some quoted figures. Shim is also a superstar in his own country and was even named who was named Korea’s most profitable entertainer of the 1990s. This movie is doing phenomenal business in Korea and is on track to become the top grossing domestic film in the country's history so the investors (mostly Korean venture capital firms and the distributor Showbox) are thrilled. Shim's status as a big time director is assured, but whether that will translate in America is a different story.

The funny thing is.... this movie is MAKING more money than KING KONG for there respective studio.

Anyway, I watched the film. I thought the CGI was actually pretty good, the battle scene in LA was nice, the final dragon vs dragon was good. The problem is.... the acting. Nothing you can do I guess, when you have a Korean budget. Yes, there were A LOT of unintentional funny moment... lol.... the story was ok. I give the movie a C+.

MAN... this movie has made more money then KING KONG for there studio....WOW... still can't get that out of my head.
