“Legend of The White Dragon” Plot
It seems like the film “Legend of the White Dragon” is a hub where fans of fantasy, science fiction, and dystopian action-thriller can all find something to their liking. The official synopsis describes the journey of a defeated warrior back to his home after the battle.
For his part, Jason David Frank portrays Erik Reed, a.k.a. the White Dragon, a hero whose power source was destroyed in battle. Reed is determined to defeat the evil wreaking havoc in his home, despite not having access to the full extent of his powers and being shunned by the people he wasn’t strong enough to protect. Luck alone won’t be enough to restore his abilities and clear his name, though.
Although the premise is darker than anything Frank has done before, Erik Reed’s history is reminiscent of Tommy Oliver’s in “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.” Fans will remember that after breaking free of Rita Repulsa’s (Barbara Goodson) mind control, the Green Ranger found redemption as the White Ranger. Frank’s role in the upcoming film should give him a chance to show off his martial arts abilities. In spite of the fantastical backdrop, the story’s central moral is grounded in the real world.
