  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
One of the most technically challenging movies to be produced from Korea, using American actors, Reptilian is the science fiction tale about a distant cousin of Godzilla and T-Rex, who can breath fire and loves to break stuff (just see its profile). Excavated from its prehistoric grave by greedy paleontologists who do not realize that the gigantic reptile, Younggary, is protected and controlled by a space ship that is willing to destroy the Earth. Younggary

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits a generally pleasing imagery, with satisfying sharpness and detail. Colors appear well-balanced, with accurate fleshtones, and generally deep blacks. The computer generated images are slightly subdued in sharpness and color saturation, but are nonetheless entertaining. The source element is revealing of film grain and occasional artifacts.
