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
Sure it's got it's weaknesses - it's inconsistencies are annoying, the effects (though, for the most part excellent) occasionally vere towards laughable, and the acting ain't gonna win any Oscars this year....(Razzies, anyone?)...
BUT - it's driven along by a good, solid premise (obviously inspired by Jurassic Park, complete with moral debate), a considerable amount of effort by the star to keep it going - he does an admirable job, incidentally - and the aforementioned mostly-excellent special effects.
My biggest moan about the film is the dreadful soundtrack. Not only was it drab and boring, believe it or not - don't know if you noticed - the damn thing stopped about 10 minutes before the end of the movie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OK, the movie was obviously made to cash in on the DTV-likers who heard how bad Reign of Fire was, but it shows alot about the movie market these days when the supposed DTV clunker is actually 5 times better than the movie it was made to cash in on, doesn't it?
Rent it, catch it on Cable (I saw it on Sci-fi UK)....it'll engross you for an hour or so, and you'll walk away wondering, as I did, why it wasn't given a bit more of a budget - it certainly deserved it...
Do I hear the words "Big Budget Remake", anyone......?
