With Matthew McConnaughey, Christian Bale, Izabella Scorupco, Gerard Butler
Directed by Rob Bowman

The world has been laid to waste by dragons awakened from their ancient slumber. It is the UK and the few people left over have to hide from the flame spewing beasts. Then a crack team of military Yanks arrives, with a plan to defeat the monsters. Power struggle here, moral dilemma there. Our two head butting leaders of each group has to work together to nail the dragons. As you enter this celluloid landscape, you'll either surrender to its fantasy elements or dismiss it as ludicrous - by avoiding the latter you'll get far more entertainment out of it. An interesting premise with elements of humanity and well placed action that prevents it from becoming a mere dark, morbid struggle for survival.
