Dragon Day (2013)

With the chatter of the New World Order’s plan for destroying America gaining momentum over the past weeks with the different information/disinformation on Ebola coming out, it is always fun watching movies with an apocalyptic feel. Of course, I feel that Jericho is a more likely scenario, but that is my opinion. Next up for review is the 2013 low budget apocalyptic flick Dragon Day.

Plot/ A family getaway to a mountain town turns deadly when China launches a massive cyber attack against the USA, forcing former NSA engineer Duke Evans to fight to save his wife and daughter in the New World Order.

Teaching electronic communications everyday, I truly believe that the next wave of attacks on the country will be a cyber attack that takes out the electronic necessities in life. I have been looking for a realistic post apocalyptic movie and this one definitely falls into a case of realism. While this one has some believability and an interesting premise, for the most part it was rough in its execution, which prevents it from reaching its potential. The acting is uneven, there were some cinematic flaws, and some of it came across forced and predictable. To me though, the believability factor and the balls to go where Red Dawn would not by implicating the Chinese as the primary culprit in the NWO takeover of America made it an enjoyable watch. In the end, this one is far from perfect, but it is also an interesting take on the end of the republic. Give it a shot; there are worse films out there.
