SYNOPSIS:

A 12 year old Quinn Abercromby accompanies his mother to work one day at a London tunneling project, his witnesses the accidental uncovering a centuries old fire-breathing dragon beast and waken it from it's sleep. After witnesses the beast kill his mother the film jumps twenty years later to a grown up Quinn who is the "fire chief" in a refugee camp. Unexpectedly an American militia leader shows up at the camp with a group of men that he calls "slayers." Van Zan and Quinn engage in a power struggle, before realizing it's the dragons they should be fighting instead.

REVIEW:

For every film, you have to suspend disbelief. The idea is that you completely give yourself to the world you see unfold before your eyes. You embrace the relatable or if not eccentric characters and you believe, understand and accept the decisions they make to get them from point A to point B.

In Reign of Fire, you don’t wish to get from point A to point B. The characters are far from eccentric; they are in fact, uninteresting, grim, and the dragons themselves are less than entertaining to watch.

Dragons are real apparently. After digging in a cave, a group of coal miners come across a dragon lying dormant. Their digging wakes the creature up and it wreaks havoc on the world along with hundreds of other dragons as well. Since then, the world has been under the dominance of winged creatures.

Twenty years later, much of the world has been scarred by the beast and its offspring. As a fire chief, Quinn is responsible for warding off the beasts and keeping a community alive as they eke out a meager existence. Into their midst come a hotshot American, Van Zan, who says he has a way to kill the beasts and save mankind - a way Quinn's never seen done.

While the storyline is not exactly a selling point, especially as you start to watch it and realize none of it makes any sense, it even seems the characters themselves can barely make any sense of it, the special effects are actually quite stunning. The dragons are soar through the sky are look great. They set the world on fire, eat people who fall from the sky in a rather absurd attempt to battle the fierce creatures on their turf, the dragons should be their own character but they’re not.

In Jurassic Park the Tyrannosaurus was the star. People went to the theater to see that dinosaur show why he is king. But here the dragons are just not interesting, compelling or even satisfying in terms of the action sequences or fun battles that look great in the trailer but by the time you see in the film you could care less.

Another problem with Reign of Fire is that it takes itself too seriously and none of it is fun. Jurassic Park was fun. Reign of Fire is not even close. With a story that is ridiculous and too convoluted, the special effects should provide some captivating and sterling moments but the movie fails to do just that. For that reason, the film is a failure.
