Ep. #85-Reign of Fire

Christian Bale Month comes to an end this week here on SUMMER BLOCKBUSTER!?!, so we decided to go out with a roar as we take on 2002’s dragon epic REIGN OF FIRE, directed by Rob Bowman. Bale and Matthew McConaughey butt heads as two alpha males desperately trying to survive in a dragon-ravaged England. How the dragons got there, or if they’ve always existed, or just their entire damn history–no one involved in this production could even be bothered to address these most basic questions, resulting in a frustrating viewing experience. Needed more swing dancing Nazis, that’s all we’re saying.
