Dragonhead (2005) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
For me, this was a wonderful movie that was indeed thought provoking (if you’re into that kind of thing or you can just enjoy explosions and violence). After reading one of these reviews, I’ve got to put in my two cents - hopefully without spoilers! The 2 main characters are Teru and Ako, who are students that survived a train wreck in a tunnel only to find that the world outside the tunnel has been basically destroyed and covered in white ash. If you pay attention to the movie, the reason for the end of the world scenario was not only explained but shown with great effects! The people the protagonists come across seem to have become insane - many reasons were proposed in the movie - and I’m sure we have a brain to contemplate about it too. The movie follows Teru and Ako as they try to get home…it’s kind of despairing for the characters yet they gradually understand why they should continue to try to survive. And that it’s better to feel fear than nothing at all.
I admit the beginning is a bit slow if only to show how disoriented Teru and Ako are when finding everyone dead. It may not be the movie for you if you’ve become numb to apocalypse movies with everyone dead and can’t even empathize with the feelings of the survivors anymore. But yeah, sure there’s violence. And there’s really no other reasonable way nor better way to end the movie. I highly recommend this!
