Synopsis

In present-day London, 12-year-old Quinn Abercromby witnesses the awakening of a hibernating dragon from a centuries-long slumber, the result of a construction dig supervised by his mother and an incident for which Quinn feels partially responsible. Twenty years later, the adult Quinn (Christian Bale) is the fire chief of a refortified castle community, responsible for dousing the blazes lit by the dragon's prodigious number of flame-spewing offspring, airborne juggernauts that have wreaked havoc across the globe, torching civilization and turning humans into an endangered species. Hope arrives in the form of Denton "Dragon Slayer" Van Zan (Matthew McConaughey), an American known to be the only man to ever kill one of the dragons, and Alex (Izabella Scorupco), a scientist/pilot who's a member of Van Zan's army, a zealous fighting force that includes a secret weapon: the Archangels, paratroopers using themselves as bait to attract and then dispatch the deadly beasts..

    Post Apocalyptic World Using Dragons? YES PLEASE!

    As long as you're not expecting the best movie ever made, you'll enjoy this film. It's well-acted, well written, visually depressing (as a post-apocalyptic story should be), and inspiring. If you're a pop culture geek, you'll love all the faces you'll recognize from other projects such as the Dark Knight Trilogy, 300, Gotham, and Game of Thrones. You'll even spot homage to Star Wars in an old-school play! This movie was fun and moving.

    One of the best Dragon Movies ever made

    I only recently had the pleasure of watching this sleeper hit. I am a HUGE fan of Christian Bale, Mathew McC, and Gerard Butler, and seeing the three of them together in leading roles in one movie was a treat. This movie delivers excellent lines, acting, and some amazing very scary dragon special effects, not sure why people are calling this 'low budget'.The movie tells the tale of a near future England where sleeping dragons have been released from an ancient tomb. They quickly multiply and overwhelm human military capabilities, and we are soon in a doomsday world where humans scrounge beneath the earth for survival while dragons rule the skies and the world above. Enter Matthew McConaughey as tough talking former US army commander leading a rag-tag unit of dragon hunters, to teach the limeys how to fight again.Which leads me to this movie's major downfall: STORY AND PLOT HAVE HOLES THE SIZE OF DRAGONS IN THEM...Story and Plot are sadly lacking in this movie, which is otherwise brilliantly acted and brilliantly filmed. The tired old story of the US coming to Britain's rescue was done in WW2, and rather insulting nowadays. Gerard Butler dies one of the most useless and hilarious deaths in film, walking upstairs to confront an elder male dragon with a fire extinguisher (I AM NOT KIDDING). OMG....Matthew McConaughey has a rather childish hissy fit when the English decide to throw a victory party for their first group dragon kill, as some of the Americans got killed... kinda silly.And the solution to all their problems is simply to kill the one male dragon... uh, what if another male hatches? Wouldn't the dragon 'species' have a solution to that??? Other than these truly dragon-sized plot holes, the movie delivers a gritty doomsday flick about dragon fighting. Not quite up to the epic and still undefeatable DRAGON SLAYER, but a worthy addition to the Dragon Movies overall.With a bit more cash and a bit more attention to plot and story, this could have truly been an epic movie. As it stands, it's still well worth renting for anyone with an interest in dragons and doomsday type flix.

    Better than You'd Expect

    Because of the B movie storyline--helicopters and tanks vs. dragons--many people will dismiss this movie out of hand. "Special effects-laden drivel," they'll say. They miss the fact that this movie is actually very well crafted. It's a decent script, with some good lines and clever little additions like Quinn's serial play based on Star Wars to entertain the children before bed.The acting is well above average all around; Christian Bale and Gerard Butler are particular stand-outs. The story is more emotional than you'd expect, which makes the action sequences more gripping. The fist fight between Quinn and Van Zan is particularly brutal and engaging. The cinematography is quite good, but that's what you'd expect when you're filling the screen with dragons. And of course the special effects are incredible. The dragons are much better than Dragonheart or Harry Potter.The music is well integrated--nothing over-the-top or grandiose, like Lord of the Rings, for example. It sets the tone well without being overbearing.All in all, it's a well crafted movie, a labor of love by director Rob Bowman. While the plot isn't for everyone, the emotional impact and superior acting help Reign of Fire stand out among action and sci fi films.
