Reign of Fire

Reign of Fire ★½ 2002 (PG-13)

Your average year 2020 post-apocalyptic world scenario: Fire-breathing dragons rule the earth. Yes, the film has dragons as the bad guys. These long dormant, London tunnel-dwelling beasties are out to incinerate what's left of humankind, which ain't much. Enter multi-tattooed, macho American Van Zan (McConaughey), British fireman (Bale), and a foxy blond helicopter pilot (Scorupco), who hook up to give the nasty critters a taste of their own medicine. By the looks of this rag tag reptile posse, apparently personal grooming has gone by the wayside in the near futuristic world and the filmmakers saw to it that character development and semi-believable plot went along with it, too. Throwaway humor scores points for the humans but after the dust settles, the cool FX dragons definitely come out on top. 101m/C VHS, DVD, Blu-ray Disc, UMD .

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
