Storyline

A group of scientists, working in a deep underground lab, clones and hatches a 1,000-year-old dragon, after finding its remains in a cavern in southern England. After the critter goes from one cell to full grown in 3 hours, it goes on a rampage, killing most of the scientists and escaping to the surface. Naturally, bullets don't faze it at all. Our Intrepid Hero helps kill if before it can menace all mankind. Sort of "Alien" meets "Reign of Fire". Written by fgunther

More lame than terrible
5 February 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Judging by what I read and heard, I was expecting it to be bad, really bad. Seeing it for myself, it was bad, but not that bad. It does get off to a good start, the dragon doesn't look too bad(especially in comparison to the effects in similar movies) and Dean Cain gives an earnest and likable performance. Unfortunately he is the only one in the cast who can halfway act, everybody else either overdo it or look as though they were held at gunpoint. The acting wasn't the only bad thing though, they were disadvantaged by characters that were little more than cardboard and undeveloped stereotypes and by their stilted dialogue. There were times even when the script was difficult to understand because of the accents being so heavy. The story was predictable and never exciting due to the flat direction and leaden pacing. If there was anything somewhat entertaining in that regard, it was counting the numerous scientific errors that would either infuriate or greatly amuse scientists. The music is incredibly drab, the orchestration is very generic and sometimes repetitive and the tempos are like listening to a very painful-sounding dirge. Apart from the dragon, there's no better news visually, the rest of the effects are slipshod and the split-screen technique is annoying and at times pointless. All in all, not quite bad enough to be bottom of the barrel, but a very lame movie. 3/10 Bethany Cox
