Well, unfortunately that's not really what happens, at least not onscreen.Originally posted by stillakid
I look forward to seeing it. On the surface, it seems to be what ALIEN 3 should have been...wild unstoppable creatures laying waste to Earth. Can't wait!
I'll be honest I've been waiting for Reign of Fire to be released for over a year and a half now, ever since they were first casting. And once McConaughey was cast and Rob Bowman was set as director I got totally pumped. And I really do love this movie, but I had hoped for some more I guess...
Mostly, I wanted to SEE the dragons laying waste, which you DON'T get to see. I wanted to see something like the scenes in the posters. Instead it all happens off screen. Now there's two explainations for not getting to see that onscreen:
1. The filmmakers have already said there was a lot of concern after 9/11, so it's possible they cut out some bits (the main filming was finished before Spet 11th but the CGI shots were just finished recent;y so they may have originally planned some "destruction shots, and just never created them")
2. Despite being a scifi film, they didn't really have the HUGE budget that scenes like that might have required.
This is too bad because I really left the theater hoping for a bit more, even though I still LOVED what they did with the movie. Oh well, if it does well (and I pray to GOD it does) maybe we'll see more in the sequel.
