Well, I've heard of this film for a good while and eventually decided to watch it. I was hooked - not only did the actors believably interact with their mythical foes, but also the technology and situation I found believable as well. A must for any techno dragon :lol:

Story line:
It is twenty years in the future, and the planet has been devastated by vicious fire-breathing dragons. The last vestiges of humanity now struggle for survival in at remote ouposts. In a ruined castle in the English countryside, Quinn is desperately trying to hold together a band of frightened, restless survivors. As a boy, Quinn watched his mother die protecting him from one of the beasts, and is still haunted by the memory. One day, a group of American rouges shows up, led by a brash, tough-guy named Van Zam. He claims to have discovered a way to kill the dragons once and for all, and enlists Quinn's help. But doing so will force Quinn to confront his own frightening memories. This, and Quinn's responsibilities to those that are under his protection, results in a battle of wills between the two men. In the end, events cause them both to realize that they must work together to defeat the monsters--both without and within.

Images:
The images are clear - save for some intentional blurring on the helicopter and fighting scenes.

Sound & Music
Very good - but then again, I'm biased towards anything involving heavy metal :wink: There's some more fantasy-themed bits here and there to add to the medieval qualities that some parts of the film posseses.

Acting (this section doesn't apply to video game)
Again, very good. They actually look like they've seen the dragon, they look like they're fed up and they look pretty pissy at being holed up in a castle.

I've finally managed to get some screenshots about this movie so I will be able to add your review to the list.

Also, it's probably just a typo, but the dragon content for a movie like this one cannot be 8/5, personally I hesitate between 2-3.

Finally, to fill the blanks:
Directors: Rob Bowman
Production: Touchstone / Spyglass Entertainment
DVD Release Date: November 19, 2002
Theatrical Release Date (US): July 12, 2002
Budget Estimate: $95 Million
