Reign of Fire


So, this movie is one of my favorite post-apocalyptic films. It’s very well-done with a direct and easily understandable plot. It has top notch actors such as Matthew McConaughey, Christian Bale and Gerard Butler. While it may be true that popular actors don’t always make a movie, this film would have been lost without the amazing acting from these guys, especially Christian Bale; who, in anyone can agree, is a distinguished and dedicated actor.
Reign of Fire is set in the year 2020. Years before in London underground construction workers unearthed a terrible menace: Dragons. These creatures terrorized the world until eventually the world was left in ruins; not only because of them but because of the foolish methods used by the humans to try and defeat them. Quinn is a leader of a small group of refugees, trying desperately to keep his people alive, when he is met with a group of American soldiers who claim they know how to kill the dragons once and for all.
I don’t have too many complaints about this film. The graphics are spot-on, the characters are interesting and the film has a perfect pace. My only issue I saw at all with the movie was the last scene with McConaughey. I won’t say what happened, but if you watch the film it’s only the part that borders melodramatic and even silly.
