Reign Of Fire

Synopsis: It is twenty years in the future, and the planet has been devastated by vicious fire-breathing dragons. The last vestiges of humanity now struggle for survival at remote outposts. In a ruined castle in the English countryside, Quinn is desperately trying to hold together a band of frightened, restless survivors. As a boy, Quinn watched his mother die protecting him from one of the beasts, and is still haunted by the memory. One day, a group of American rogues shows up, led by a brash, tough-guy named Van Zan. He claims to have discovered a way to kill the dragons once and for all, and enlists Quinn's help. But doing so will force Quinn to confront his own frightening memories. This, and Quinn's responsibilities to those that are under his protection, results in a battle of wills between the two men. In the end, events cause them both to realize that they must work together to defeat the monsters--both without and within.

Hello, Quinn.

Good morning, Quinn.

How's it going, mate?

What's up, guys?

Working the late shift,

are you?

Ha! Someone's got to

clean up after you guys.

All right, Quinn.

Oi, oi, oi.

Come on, then.

You're not havin' one

yourself, then?

No.

I'm trying to cut back.

You heard from the school,

then, didn't you?

Down you go.

Good night, lads.

...See you, Karen. ... Great

work. Have a good weekend.

Oi, Karen,

here's the new recruit.

...Employment office

is up top. ... Hi, Mum!

Quinn, how are you, mate?

Have you been smoking?

No, I told you... I only smoke

when I've been drinking.

What's wrong?

Nothing.

Quinn... what is it?

You've got something

you want to show me.

You know what it says.

Scholarship was worth...

$3,000 a year.

We don't have

that sort of money.

Maybe we could ask Dad

to pay.

Sorry.

Karen?

What?

Got a problem at number 4.

Jess says he's hit

some sort of a void.

Oh, that bitch hasn't a clue

to what she's doing.

Hey... Quinn.

And what brings you

to the arsehole of the world?

You're passing through it.

What's that make you?

Ha.

Here.

Why don't you go inside

and have a wee look?

Wicked.

Whoa.

...I know it's still...

... Well, I covered it.

What... Quinn!

Mum, there's something

in there.

There's something

in the hole!

Damn it, Jess!

It's unsafe conditions!

Here.

Let's look at this void.

It's unsafe!

I'm just going to wash

your eyes out, okay?

Mum, we've got to go!

No, no.

We've got to do this fast.

Open your eyes.

Open them up. Open them.

Oh.

Give me that.

Get in!

Mum, there was something

in there!

...Come here!

Come on! Come on!

Mum!

Ahhhhhhh!

Mum?

Mum?

Mum?

I've kept this for years,

because someday

it will be up to you.

I don't want you to be afraid.

I want you to understand.

Knowledge is the only weapon

we've got left.

In the beginning, it was

ignorance that destroyed us.

I saw the first, but soon

the world saw millions.

No one knew how they spawned

so fast.

They swarmed like locusts,

burning everything

in their path,

driven by one purpose...

to feed.

Even then, we couldn't believe

they were real.

Ancient man had made them

into myths,

but nature had made something

far more terrible.

Too late, our scientists

discovered their true identity...

a species which had burned

the dinosaurs to dust,

whose ash had brought on

ice ages,

who, in eons past, had scorched

the world clean of life,

waiting for the Earth

to replenish itself,

to start their cycle anew.

...2... 1. ... Our weapons

shot fire back at them,

yet for every one of them

killed,

a hundred took its place.

They seemed invulnerable.

We could only look on

as our leaders used

their greatest arsenal

to destroy them.

...But in the end,

we only helped them,

till the world burned

and the few of us

that were left fled the cities,

found shelter where we could.

...You have to understand

our past

because you will decide

our future.

They're starving now,

and they're more dangerous

than ever.

But we have to go on.

We have to outlast them.

Only one species is getting

out of this alive.

Hey, Quinn!

Come and have a look

at this!

It's a straight drop now

from the water tower.

You just pull the plug,

hits the walls.

Don't care about the specs,

Jerry.

can it take it?

Yeah. Course it can.

Remember, I used to build

blast furnaces for a living.

I know all about fire.

Of course you do.

Sorry, mate.

Nice one.

Eddie's gone psycho.

...Jared?

... Yeah, Quinn?

Keep 'em at it.

No slacking!

You heard him.

No slacking.

Go!

...I shall always walk.
