      DanTheMan 2 The Yonggary remake is a special kind of terrible Kaiju film, being the most expensive film in South Korea at the time. It's a ridiculous movie all-around firmly in the realm of so bad it's good; joining the likes of A*P*E in its infamy. It's been asleep for two hundred million years. Now it has been awakened by aliens from another galaxy. The aliens are using Yonggary to destroy mankind. A major passion project by Hyung-Rae Shim, his lack of polish bleeds all over the screen with odd shot composition, confusing and downright bizarre editing, painful overacting and predictably dull storytelling. I'd recommend this purely because of how ungodly terrible it is and for a good laugh more than anything else, it doesn't have a lot of strong points in any regard but might pass for entertainment if you are off your head on something. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member the original Yongary was more fun Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member The film feels like a classic Japanese monster film, besides the horrible CGI and American actors. The acting is awful, the effects are bad, and the characters are boring. It takes a while for any monster action to start, and there just isn't much of it. It's hard to tell if this was suppose to be serious and a tribute. I won't say it's a horrible film, but it's not very good either. Incredibly cheesy though. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Ho-ly crap. Unbelievably, horrifically, unequivocally and irreversibly bad. I don't think they make strong enough words in the English language to really describe the depths of this thing. It is so bad, that its good, bad, good, and then bad again. Seriously.

Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member The movie is practically bad but it is "So bad, it's Good!" This remake of the Kaiju classic Yongary is anything but a good film. But it is so fun! The bad "incomplete" CGI affects the movie greatly but it is better than a "too fake" monster film like Reptilicus. This is the type of movie that you would expect the Sci-fi channel to produce and this is how I watched it. It was a film with bad formula but that's what made this film good to watch. The formula is so bad that it eventually becomes amusing. I strongly believe that the Original 1999 cut is probably better than this cut, the 2001 Upgrade but we'll never know.
