The Peacock King (1989)

This movie has Top notch special effects, groundbreaking IMO. It does not shy even compared to Storm Riders, which came out 10 years later. The SFX here easily beats Zu Warriors (and it should, since Zu was released 6 years ago). That's really too bad, because this really is one of the worst movies I have ever seen.

Inner Strength is absolutely right on that the movie has great potentials but fails to deliver. As he said, the badly executed, boring, and flawed plot is the main weakness. Despite some of the best SFX I have seen, this movie just couldn't capture my attention. The pacing is terrible, and you just have to wonder, what's the point of this movie? Is there anything we haven't seen besides the SFX? It's all too familiar, and it's all been done better. This is even worse than Iceman Cometh, although I never thought that's possible. If you desire to witness some great SFX for the period, see it, but don't say we didn't warn you about the plot.

[4/10]
