One of the funnier lines that I heard in Reign of Fire. And although I am not American, and can't totally disagree with that statement. However, it was kind of ironic hearing it come out of the mouth of a Brit. With their crooked, yellow teeth. And their...more

by Sean O'Connell (Rating: 2.5/5)
Pity the dragon. When not building lame adventures around the mythical beasts (Dungeons & Dragons), filmmakers have saddled the poor creatures with the smooth baritone stylings of Sean Connery (Dragonheart). Reign of Fire, director Rob Bowmanís grim...more
