n present-day London, twelve-year-old Quinn watches as his mother, a construction engineer inadvertently wakes an enormous fire-breathing beast from its centuries-long slumber. Twenty years later, much of the world has been scarred by the beast and its offspring. Matthew McConaughey and Christian Bale are the only good things in the movie because those two are likable as actors, but the rest of the movie was all over the place but the visual's are okay.

For a movie with so many dragons, it's pretty disappointing.

The whole premise is of course absolutely ridiculous, but this B-movie creature feature was given the A-list treatment and what emerges is a reasonably entertaining monster mash. Some great effects and a good eye from Rob Bowman who uses the dark, flames and cinders to great atmospheric effect make for a very nice looking film, all set in some nice gothic landscapes of desolate wastelands, castles and …

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 …
