Reign of Fire 
Reign of Fire
1.5/4 stars

Dragons emerge and burn the whole world as a boy witnesses his mother get killed by one, this boy grows up to be the leader of a group of survivors in the future who live in fear of the Dragons; who now populate the Earth.

Funnily enough, despite the fact that it is the year 2020 the arrival of Dragons makes them live in what appear to be medieval times. A bunch of American soldiers in tanks turn-up at the bases door-step and their general negotiates his way into the camp. The two dislike each other quite strongly, in what appears to be the deepest character relationship of the film. A female soldier is also among the new inhabitants and, of course, there is tension between the two.

However, even though this American soldier has brought a dozen tanks along with him, he still finds it necessary to wield a completely non-practical and comically over-sized axe with him, because he is too cool for guns.


The films itself is okay if you are wanting to see pure action, but at the risk of sounding pretentious, there was close to zero deep interaction between the characters, apart from the odd scene, and the mandatory love story was appalling in that it basically consisted of the man and woman chatting a bit.

Being a sci-fi film gives room for unrealistic scenarios and statuses, but the fact that this was set in the real place of England and even worse that it is set on a mountain like area of one of the flattest parts of the country just adds to the continuity.


As for action, this film is satisfactory, there are guns, fire, destruction and explosions, but as a proper in-depth film, the storyline is really anything too unique and even then it isn't pulled-off particularly well either.


The idea of Dragons being brought to life sounded like it had a spark of potential to be a strong film, but from "Reign of Fire" there was really no danger of that happening at all.
