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 at remote outposts. 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 rogues 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. Written by
Matthew's character "Denton" tells his men to line up 20 yards South by Southwest; being a Texan he is referencing Austin's annual music festival, South by Southwest (SXSW). See more »
Part of the film is set in treacherous mountain terrain, allegedly in Norfolk - famously one of the flattest counties in England, with only one hill rising over 300 feet above sea level. See more »

I think this is the best post-apocalyptic action film since THE ROAD WARRIOR. Everything about it works: the story, the acting, the sets, the special effects. It amazes me that this film never found it's audience. I think it's fantastic. Unfortunately, that summer of 2002 all anyone could think about was the over hyped debut of "spider man." Such a shame, because this film beats it by a mile in terms of imagination on display. The sequence where men attempt to snare a dragon in mid-air is something that has never been seen before on-screen. Amazing and excellent stuff, pulled off with panache. And audiences--brainwashed by a media blitz of hype--couldn't't see past Toby Maguire in tights. Ah, well, we are living with the results now with all of these dreadful sequels to super-hero movies. ugh.
