Like tedious, po-faced high fantasy stories, it removes all the myth and meaning from beings such as dragons, and has a visual palette of grey and shit brown and little else. Only difference here are the tanks and Matthew McConaughey (of all people) being the dwarf. Its the worst kind of portrayal of Western mythology, lazy and no way near as entertaining as the dumb but fun Skyrim on your game console.
A criminally under-appreciated post-apocalyptic action flick with lots of savage, bad-ass characters. Although a little corny, it stands the test of time. Stunning production design and great special effects make it a visual feast. How often do you get to see a man leap from a tower, axe-in-hand, towards a soaring dragon? Never. Except here.
Con un cast che vanta il trio Bale-Butler-Mcconaughey, mi aspettavo molto di più. Anche tralasciando per un momento la tremenda scelta di doppiaggio per Butler nella versione italiana, il film non si salva. L'idea di un mondo post-apocalittico con draghi nell'era moderna poteva essere grandiosa, ma come certe volte accade, anche le belle idee possono essere distrutte da una realizzazione mediocre.
Worth the price of admission for the fact that Matthew McConaughey gets eaten. If some enterprising filmmaker would now just splice this footage with the scene from Scream when Drew Barrymore is stabbed to death...
