...McConaughey goes for broke and turns this guy into an amalgam of every hard-nosed soldier previously committed to celluloid.

If London in cinders and medium rare sky-diving soldiers can't get you into the cinema, you're probably one of those people who were never fascinated by matches as a child.

If "Reign of Fire" could have spared a few more bucks to pump up the thrills and spent a little longer working out the story's ending, it might have become one of the highest grossing films of the summer.

La carta fuerte de este filme reside en su poderoso trabajo de computadora y en sus fastuosos efectos especiales. Nada más.

Reign of Fire looks nice, and wiles away 90 minutes of screen time agreeably.

It's hard not to like a film that has sky divers jumping out of helicopters to catch flying dragons in a big net.

Reign of Fire may well be the most grim dragon movie ever made -- and it's all the more effective for the filmmakers' decision to play it straight.

Reign of Fire may be little more than another platter of reheated Aliens, but it's still pretty tasty.

I'm not going to argue that Reign of Fire is a good movie, but it's terribly entertaining it's kind of a classic camp film, so I'm giving it thumbs up.

The season could do with more grinning, spinning, un-self-important, happy-to-be-B throwback movies like this one.
