It's hard to imagine a better futuristic flying dragon movie than this, if one can imagine such a thing at all. However, while we wait for such a comparison, we could probably do a lot worse than Reign Of Fire.
Reign of Fire is hardly the most original fantasy film ever made -- beyond Road Warrior, it owes enormous debts to Aliens and every previous dragon drama -- but that barely makes it any less entertaining.
