Plot Summary

Matthew McConaughey (U-571) and Christian Bale (Batman Begins) 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.

Love this movie and i believe it is very underrated. but renting is not enough. we NEED to have it for sale and OWN.

Very Underrated

Across the board I see critics giving this movie around a 60 out of 100 rating. I'm not exactly sure why either. Great cast and decent storyline. This movie is at least worth renting if you're into dragons + post apoc themes.

Too Much Overlooked & Underrated

Well written, well acted, and the action is superb. I don't understand how so many people missed seeing this movie! Special effects were very well done also. I wish more movies this good were made.
