The poor dragons - on screen not nearly enough as it is - stand no chance pitted against this kind of heavyweight ham.

Better than the trailers made it seem, but nothing to get fired up about.

For all of its design and special-effects artistry, "Reign of Fire" is seldom convincing -- only slightly more alive than the silly 2000 "Dungeons & Dragons."

The sole spark of humanity comes from Matthew McConaughey, whose gung-ho glee brings a hint of excitement and adventure to this hugely unsatisfying feature.

McConaughey's soldier chews more scenery than even the toothiest of the dragons.

"Is that dragon's breath?" a child asks Quinn, as a fetid wind rumples his hair. Yes it is, and boy does it stink.

Plodding sci-fi dragon disaster tale is OK for older kids.

Garners so much potential for a large exciting universe, but is just a waste of acting talent, special effects and money
July 14, 2007
The main problem with the film (and there's a lot of competition there) is the writing - or lack thereof.

While the dragons come out blazing, the rest of the movie is blowing smoke.

Everybody is screaming and yelling. The costumes and the sets all look like they're left over from Mad Max. Everybody's wearing leather and big boots and they're all dirty and it's just like any other end of the world scenario you've ever seen.

It's painful to watch actors like McConaughey and Bale, who showed so much potential at one time in their careers, shamelessly overact and spout inane dialogue.
July 25, 2003
Roteiro absurdo, história frágil, personagens pouco agradáveis e ação nada empolgante.

Reign Of Fire should at least be a marvel of special effects, but alas, even the dragon's not very much fun.
January 20, 2003
Reign of Fire is the schoolyard bully who used to beat the crap out of you during breaks: it is big, loud, dumb and never explains itself.
December 8, 2002
[A] surprisingly lifeless monster movie.
November 18, 2002
Despite a few epic revelations, we never get a real sense of living, breathing dragons.
November 12, 2002
Wouldn't you have thought that a studio about to spend over $90,000,000 on a movie would have begun with a script instead of a few special effects?

Stupid futuristic nonsense.
