This is so typical of misleading hype and false advertising. Awesome posters of dragons burning up London, as Apache Copters engage in intense battle with them. Sounds really great, doesn't it? Well, SURPRISE! None of this is to be found in this dreary disappointer.We begin with a suspenseful, promising opening scene where a dragon is accidentally unearthed in a London excavation site, and escapes. So far, so good. Now for the bad news: The director (for whatever moronic reasons) then cuts to '20 Years Later' - after everything that is worth seeing has already happened. WTF??!!Imagine if something like WAR OF THE WORLDS began with the Martians' arrival, then immediately jumps ahead a few years after all the action and suspense has occured. Bet you'd really love that. I can envision furious audiences storming the box office, demanding their money back - and rightfully so. You just don't pull something as deceptively cheesy as that, and expect any loyalty from your disgruntled audience and ex-fans. RoF skips right past the real story of the dragons' assault on the modern world, and their eventual destruction of civilization. Wouldn't that have made a far greater movie than this tepid dreck, which only has fleeting moments of any real action? Imagine spectacular scenes of cities being devastated by armies of dragons, with modern technologies' desperate fight to try to stop them. And when the scientists learn that they caused the dinosaurs' extinction - and a flashback that SHOWS this.With a decent script and right director, a prequel could really deliver. Just keep Roland Emmerich and all his idiocy far away from it.Otherwise, another vapid wasted opportunity that could have really delivered - if anyone had bothered to care.And the budget was $95,000,000. So don't give me that 'not enough money' cop-out. How about a serious prequel? Or am I 'asking too much' from most of the bozos involved in 'film making' today?
