Watched this years ago and liked the story then and more so today. The pace was fast, intense scenes and gripping dragon hunts. The graphic circa 2002 was realistic and almost as good as those from Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones.

A good movie in the junra of an apocalyptic world. Lots of fire, explosions and action.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. “Not too bad---good performance”. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!!! DON'T YOU DARE WATCH THIS MOVIE WITHOUT YOUR HOMETHEATER!!!!!! I have three movies which features dragons. "Dragon Heart" "Dragon Slayer" and this one "Reign of Fire". This one by far has the best sound (dts) that is "sound freak" worthy. The sounds of the Dragon is AWESOME!!!!! From flying with it's mighty wings, to blowing fire, this dragon is one mean beast. And there's quite a few scenes with excellent sound. This is by far one of my favorite horror monster movies with dts sound that features a Dragon and it's part of my collection. I also love the way the Dragon looks. Now the story is ok and the cast is good, but it's the Dragon that's the star of this film. I do have three favorite scenes. One is when the "angels" jump from the helicopter and give chase to the Dragon high in the sky. The sound of the air rushing past the men as they try to capture the dragon is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!! Your surrounds will have you standing and cheering from the sounds of the rushing air. I also enjoyed the scene where the young boy accidentaly walks into the dragon underground at the beginning of the movie. Listening to the Dragon breathing, yelling and then breaking free as the young boy and his mother try to escape on the lift is very cool!!!! And finally, there 's a scene when two vehicles are driving through a field filled with burnt objects when the Dragon suddenly land right in front of them unexpectedly and begins blowing fire. Excellent sound!!!!!!!! There are more great action scenes of this beast with very good sound. I'm giving this movie 5 stars!!!!!!!!!!! Excellent sound!!! Very good visuals of Dragons, a decent story, and good cast. Buffalo Hot Wings, extra hot sauce, white rice, green peppers, red peppers, beans, and a cool glass of tea. Ahhhhhh..

Quinn: He's a dragon slayer.
Creedy: A what?
Quinn: He's a dragon slayer!
Creedy: Oh, he's a dragon slayer. Oh, good. And I suppose that makes you King Arthur, does it?

Van Zan: It was late November. It's a month of mist. And we were caught in the open.
The sun was setting behind us. There was nowhere to run. Twice it came in on us,
and twice it missed the heart of us. And that's when I had an epiphany. You see, they have great vision... in the day. And they have even better vision at night. But in the failing light, they can't focus. Magic hour.

In the beginning, it was ignorance that destroyed us. I saw the first, but soon the world saw millions. No one knew how they spawned so fast. They swarmed like locusts, burning everything in their path, driven by one purpose...to feed. Even then, we couldn't believe they were real. Ancient man had made them into myths, but nature had made something far more terrible. Too late, our scientists discovered their true identity...a species which had burned the dinosaurs to dust, whose ash had brought on ice ages, who, in eons past, had scorched the world clean of life, waiting for the Earth to replenish itself, to start their cycle anew.

Alex: ...Did you see the one we brought down, the big bull? ... Yeah. Well, it wasn't.
It was a female.
...
Van Zan: You ever seen a male?
Quinn: I don't know. When I'm running for my life, I don't stop to look at the plumbing.
