Matthew McConaughey (U-571) and Christian Bale (SHAFT) 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.

Lastly: It is a fantasy film - for those of you who believe that humans and dinosaurs existed at the same time, I'm sorry, despite "The Flintstones", they did not. So far as we know there are not, nor has there ever been dragons. So, the script is an invention from the writers.
The critics panned the movie as they thought the whole premise was fantasy. Clue: it is!
My opinion of the film: Well, the dragons are so realistic that most of the theater audience gasped and ducked throughout the movie. The fire so realistic that I feared catching fire. The dragon's roars sent chills through my body at times. Great film! See it for yourself and ignore the reviewers here that just didn't get it.
As one would expect in a CGI-heavy film 15 years old, the effects look a bit dated. The aforementioned screenplay sticks to the tried & true throughout, ruining whatever suspense might have been found. Gaping plot holes riddle every part of the story. Still, this is not a terrible choice for a lazy movie night in the same vein as flicks like "Armageddon" and "Independence Day", albeit with far less in the way of comic relief. The principals give what little effort is required to play their roles, and there's enough in the way of man vs. dragon combat to keep your eyes off the popcorn bowl, even if you know how each battle is going to end.
