This is a movie review of Mandrake.
Mandrake is a SyFy original movie. The plot is interesting in that it assumes you know this is a tv based movie and not to expect much.
A rich person hires a bunch of mercenaries and academics to hunt down a dagger that was part of his family hundreds of years ago. In the course of finding the dagger, a team unleashes a spirit that can control various plant life in the jungle. Trees, plants and more come alive and attack.
I never quite figured out why the plants were attacking. I think it had something to do with dagger being taken, but I am not sure.
What I liked about Mandrake:
Length – It wasn’t very long, so it doesn’t take up too much time.
Natives – I thought the natives were created in an interesting way, especially their sacrifice.
What I disliked about Mandrake:
Special effects – You have to know it is a SyFy original movie, so it isn’t the best.
Acting – Yes, I know it isn’t a mainstream movie, but the acting was a little cheesy.
If you’re looking for something to watch while working, Mandrake is an easy movie to listen to.
