[13.07.2002] Auf der Website von Mad At Gravity kann man den Song "Walk Away" aus "Reign of Fire" downloaden und das Real Player-Video anschauen...

[12.07.2002] Bei CineMovies.fr gibt es mehrere Ausschnitte... Harry von AICN bezeichnet den Film als "the very best DRAGON movie ever made"... Bei CS! gibt es eine eher negative Kritik (4/10)...
[...] I was disappointed with what I received; a (horrible) dialogue driven, slight action movie with a few skimpy shots of dragons. [...]
The movie also could have benefited from some violence (or an R rating). The dragons aren't a big threat because all the audience sees are people running from them and we never see the dragon's cruelty while disposing of a human.
The movie is a step in the right direction for dragon movies, but it still didn't work in my book. The movie is essentially crowd-pleasing and most of the audience seemed to enjoy it, so if you are a sci-fi, fantasy fan, I'd recommend "Reign of Fire".


[11.07.2002] Bei CS! gibt es einige Kommentare von Bale & Scorupco... Bei CS! gibt es zudem eine recht positive Kritik (8/10)... Dem Film scheint es allerdings an etwas Wichtigem zu mangeln...
[...] Simply put, there are not enough dragons in this film. Practically all of the dragon scenes in the movie are shown in the trailers and commercials. The movie sets up the premise that the world has been devastated by these creatures and that they are swarming all over the planet by the millions killing humans. Yet there are really only 3 dragons that we see battles with in the film. You never get a sense of the epic scale of the situation. The part where they take over the world is glossed over in a 2 minute synopsis though it is probably one of the most exciting aspects of this story. It probably would have cost millions more to feature extra dragons, but it's what this film really needed. [...]

[02.07.2002] Bei SF Wire gibt es ein Interview mit Christian Bale...

[29.06.2002] Bei SF Wire gibt es ein Interview mit Rob Bowman... Und bei Coming Soon! gibt es einen Interview-Auszug aus dem Magazin "PLAY"...
First off, what a fantastic concept! From were did it spawn?
Rob Bowman: The idea came from a couple of guys who, I believe, were from Wisconsin who, I was told, were a couple of milk truck drivers-that might be an expression, but it makes for a better story either way. [Laughs] What if you took the great mythological dragon and combined them in the textures of World War 2, but you did it contemporary? And you didn't do it in a medieval setting, with wizards and warlocks, but with tanks and castles and soldiers and dragons, and then tried to play that in a realistic tone. That was the seed idea. And the original scripts-the ones that I read-were very fleshed and wildly imaginative. I felt that it was a bit too much like Independence Day-it was more about how much you can put the dragons on screen. I knew two things: 1) It wasn't scary enough; and 2) nobody would make it-it would just cost too much money. My take on it was, what if I did it more in the vein of Jaws or the first Alien movie where it's more about anticipation and expectation, and told through the eyes of the characters, and what it's like to live in a world that's dominated by dragons-you're trying to figure out a way to overcome a far superior opponent.
So you're sparing head-to-head dragon encounters, in effect, provoking fear?
Bowman: Yeah. So I sort of boiled it down to its essence. There are different philosophies set forth about how to deal with them. Some people think, if you wanna overwhelm the dragons.if you want to overcome their dominance-you just have to take them on. Other people say, "No, it's impossible. They're too superior. They're too overwhelming. Why don't we just dig in and wait 'til they starve off because eventually they'll run out of food? The world is a finite area, eventually they'll be nothing left to burn and nothing left to eat-they'll die." You're just hoping that nature will run its course, and how long will that take? At the rate that [the dragons] are going, that's a few hundred years-many generations of people. Will there be any people left after that last dragon starves off? That's theoretically a good idea, but, jeez, you're asking for a lot of divine intervention.

[27.06.2002] Bei CHUD gibt es ein interessantes Interview mit Christian Bale und Rob Bowman... "Reign of Fire kicks ass"... Bei AICN gibt es eine positive Kritik...
[...] In fact, this movie kicks more ass than anything I’ve had the pleasure of seeing all summer (and I really enjoyed Spider-Man and Star Wars). One of the big differences between a movie like this and a movie like Godzilla is that the characters are actually interesting people. They feel like real human beings, not just food for a big scary monster to chew on. Christian Bale surprised me. He does a hell of a job as the good guy (for a change) and totally gets into the ‘action hero’ mode. He is a man who cares about the people he’s protecting and he does so with his very life. The same can be said for Matthew McConaughey’s character, a hardened military commander who sheds tears for the soldiers he’s lost in battle.
I must be kidding, right? There’s no way that you can pull off something like this without sacrificing plot, characters or both. Well, this movie managed to do it all and keep the audience thoroughly entertained. What more can I say? Great characters. Fire breathing Dragons. Sky diving as bait to catch a hungry flying reptile. This movie has it all (even a terrific ‘bughunt’ sequence through the charred remains of London). Oh, and you George Lucas fans are going to love the homage to Star Wars, it’s one of the best scenes in the movie!


[20.06.2002] Bei AICN gibt es eine positive Kritik...
[...] I for one am a tad tired of the Monster taking over film. Roland Emmerichs version of Godzilla was the last nail in the coffin. However, this film, though sterotypical, breathes some new life into the genre. Much like The Matrix did 3 years ago, the film takes a lot of old ideas and puts them together into an all new product. The thing I enjoyed most is the simply...the dragons. These arent your crappy Dungeons and Dragons fake looking ones. Nor do you hear them start talking in a thick Scottish accent. These are dragons that are bad ass. They do things dragons haven't done in film before. Though they aren't seen for a large majority of the film, when they do show up, its quite impressive. [...]

[19.06.2002] Phantastik.de meldet...
Rob Bowman hat in einem Interview ein wenig ueber die Story von "Reign of Fire" gesprochen. Demnach wird der Film in der Gegenwart starten, eine Apokalypse folgt, danach springt die Handlung 20 Jahre in die Zukunft. In dem Film uebernehmen Drachen die Herrschaft ueber die Erde und die Menschheit wird von ihnen gejagt. Fuer Bowman sei das Interessante am Film gewesen, zu sehen, wie Menschen auf eine staendige Bedrohung reagieren und welche Qualitaeten sie in solchen Situationen entwickeln.

[04.06.2002] Bei AICN gibt es eine erste, überaus positive Kritik...
[...] So how's the movie? Pretty bad-ass. The effects are on par or better than most of the stuff we've seen lately, the sets look like a cross between ROAD WARRIOR and ALIEN and the dragons look real, sound great and are intensely scary -- like amped up dinosaurs from JURASSIC PARK. The skydiving action sequence is especially crazy. These guys jump out of the helicopter without parachutes and play chicken with the dragon! This is everything a good B-summer popcorn movie should be -- lots of adrenaline, cool action, a total ride. [...]

[28.05.2002] Iain Baillie hat einige Zitate von Alexander Siddig über "Reign of Fire"... Vorsicht SPOILER !!!
[...] "I was starring with 2 big stars - Matthew McConaughey & Christian Bale, but all the kids on the set - which we filmed in Ireland, kept coming up to me, pointing and saying 'Look! - It's Dr. Bashir - can I have your autograph?' - much to the annoyance of my supposed more famous co-stars. They even said 'You can get your friends in it too, if you want'! However McConaughey passed the word round to us that he wanted to be called ' Van Zan', the character in the movie. This was even outside the set - you know if we were having dinner or something. I suppose when you earn all the millions he did that you need something."

[25.05.2002] Sci Fi Wire sprach mit dem Drehbuchautor Matt Greenberg...
[...] "There are scenes that are just going to blow you away. My favorite scene is an aerial fight [with] parachuters jumping out of helicopters and fighting the dragons literally in freefall. It's just a spectacular sequence."

[17.05.2002] Bei iFilm.com kann man einen langen "Hinter den Kulissen"-Bericht anschauen...

[05.04.2002] Bei SciFi.com erzählt Rob Bowman etwas über das Design der Drachen...
Rob Bowman, director of the upcoming SF movie Reign of Fire, told SCI FI Wire that the dragons on view in the film would set the standard for big screen dragons. "I did not want to make the dragon from Dragonheart, which was a large body, small wingspan and had to flap like mad to stay in the air... Mine have big, giant wingspans like an eagle, but take a king cobra and put it down the center."
[...] "I spent about nine months designing these things. I had drawings in about three weeks that I presented, and then we started designing characteristics and personalities and making them more serpent-like than dinosaur-like. They look like they're alive, agile and very supreme killers. I had paleontologists involved and a lot of artists involved, and we got to a boil-down point, because a lot of fantasy dragons are very exaggerated, have too many horns and look human anyway. We got it down to a sterile, realistic dragon, but it was boring. So I went back a little bit and added back some things that people who like dragons like to see, which is horns and attitude. So our dragon looks great, and it would really work if there were such a creature. This thing is as real as we could make it."

[05.10.2001] 13th Street hat ein positives Script Review veröffentlicht...

[18.07.2001] Bei Dark Horizons gibt es ein positives Script Review...
This has got to be one of the coolest scripts I've read in awhile. The premise alone is intriguing to say the least. Think "Mad Max meets Dragonslayer". Here's the story: During a construction project in London, a cavern is uncovered where a large (and i mean LARGE) dragon has been hibernating all these years. Needless to say, she awakens and flies off (while torching a few workers in the process). Fast forward about 40 or so years later and there are now thousands of dragons all over the earth (but the action takes place only in England). Remember how in Waterworld the people lived in isolated communes? Same thing here. People hole up in old castles and the grounds are scorched for miles. I know what you're thinking, why don't we just throw a couple of fighter jets at them? It's explained (but I ain't tellin ya here.) Agriculture is how people sustain themselves unless a dragon torches it. Quinn is the appointed leader of one such commune and he's the local fire battalion chief. One day, Van Zant (Matthew McCoughany) arrives with his men and his tanks offering his assistance. At first, Quinn is reluctant to accept aid from an outsider but they soon realize they have both been severely affected by the dragons' presence. United for a common cause, they decide to strike a blow for mankind and take out the very first dragon (the one that originated from the cavern), dubbed Ashley. I really can't say too much more except WOW. This is some fine writing and while some of the characters could use a tweak or two as far as development, it's not anything drastically needed. Again, this should be cool cool cool. Bottom line: Opening night, opening weekend. Dragonheart II, this ain't! I know this is already scheduled for release next spring and it definitely ranks on my top 10 movies to see next year.

[01.05.2001] ShowBiz Ireland hat ein aktuelles Bild von McConaughey (Glatze & Bart) und Bale (Wildes Haar & Bart)... So dürften sie wohl im Film aussehen...
"Stars came out in force last night for the Dublin premier of Captain Corelli's Mandolin in the Savoy cinema. Reign of Fire cast members John Hurt, Matthew McConaughey, and Christian Bale showed up sporting their less than glamorous images they have adapted for their parts in the movie. Onlookers barely recognised the stars currently filming the Disney 60 million epic being filmed here in Ireland. Facial hair and a general rough appearance of both Bale and McConaughey will give us an idea of how their characters will look in the actual movie."

[26.04.2001] Dark Horizons - Hollywood verdreht mal wieder die Tatsachen... Gedreht wird im bergigen Irland... Der Film spielt aber im flachsten Flachland: Norfolk, England... Ein Einheimischer dazu...
"I couldn't believe what I was reading when I saw how the film featured a castle on top of a mountain in Norfolk. I tried to explain that they were making a terrible mistake, but they just shrugged their shoulders and said it was a small detail. Their view was that the film wold be seen by 200 million people across the world and only about two million would know that Norfolk is flat".

[27.03.2000] Bei AICN gibt es ein Script-Review...

[2001] Alexander Siddig über "Reign of Fire"...
"I wear a goatee (of sorts) in this picture - very unkempt looking as we are all urchins after the proverbial 'armageddon' of Dragon wrath - the entire world has been devasted by them and only ashes remain and a few struggling survivors holding out in a castle (old medieval style). I use an approximation of a cockney accent- more north London really."
