Reign Of Fire

3

The cinema-release hype tried to fool everyone into thinking that Reign Of Fire was crammed to the fangs with awesome dragon-against-helicopter fights. That was something of a fib. What Fire really offered was less extravagant pulse-poundy special effects and more dreary post-apocalyptic scrapping. Not so much walking with fire-lizards as a second delivery of The Postman.

It fares better on the small screen, though, with Christian Bale’s shabby bearded survivor Quinn, Matthew McConaughey’s psycho soldier and their quest to destroy the daddy of all dragons actually proving fairly involving. More dragons (and in daylight) would still have been nice, though...
