The actors and plot of the film Reign of Fire sound like pure win. It's got Butler. It's got Bale. It's got a post-apocalyptic world destroyed by dragons. And it's even got a Star Wars reenactment.
Tragically, Reign of Fire did not deliver on any count other than the Star Wars fight scene. The dragons were meh and never fought directly against helicopters, plus all efforts at creating a credible post-apocalyptic world are thrown out the window in a scene where Bale brews coffee with an electric coffee maker. Really, now - you think these dragon-menaced weirdos in a castle are going to have electricity for making coffee, but won't have a DVD player to show the kids Star Wars?
