Matthew McConaughey and Christian Bale star in an explosive action-packed adventure with bone-charring special effects that will have you glued to your seat! When workers in a London tunneling project awaken an unearthly fire-breathing beast from centuries of slumber, all hell breaks loose. Twelve-year-old Quinn (Bale) sees his mother, one of the workers, die trying to escape this new terror. Twenty years later as a "fire chief," he tries to keep a group of refugees alive with fierce dragons dominating the air, burning the land and feeding on the ash. Unexpectedly, Van Zan (McConaughey), a hotshot American militia leader, shows up with a ragtag group of slayers on a perilous crusade to hunt down and destroy the beasts. Tempers flare when there is a struggle for leadership -- until both men realize only one species is getting out of this alive.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Reign of Fire gains some altitude with its pyrotechnic action and a smolderingly campy Matthew McConaughey, but the feature's wings are clipped by a derivative script and visual effects that fizzle out.
Despite a few epic revelations, we never get a real sense of living, breathing dragons.

Common Sense Says
Plodding sci-fi dragon disaster tale is OK for older kids.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that violence in this monster flick includes the mother of a little boy being killed, non-graphically, by fire-breathing dragons. Deaths are not very bloody -- usually characters enveloped in CGI flames, eaten in one gulp by dragons, or falling. There is occasional swearing, smoking, and drinking.
