Corrected entry: In the scene where Alex is flying away from the castle on the way to London for the first time, you can see a train moving along the bottom the mountain.
Corrected entry: When the tanks are first entering Quinn's compound, at one point, you can see that on one of the tanks the treads aren't moving, but the tank is.
Corrected entry: At the start of the movie Quinn (as a child) is seen walking quite freely on a major building site. No hard hat and the freedom of a tube-line extension? Me thinks not.
Corrected entry: The dragons used didn't appear as a more traditional Dragon. Its appearance more resembled a Wyvern. Traditionally, dragons appeared with four legs and a set of wings, but these dragons only had two legs, much like a Wyvern (think a dragon w/ two legs and doesn't breathe fire).
Corrected entry: It's proven correct that the Dragons reproduce like fish, the female lays the eggs, and the male comes along later and fertilizes them after they are outside the mother's body. However, when Quinn pulls the egg out of the dead Dragon, we clearly see an outline of a baby Dragon inside the amber-colored egg. The egg was not fertilized as it was still inside the mother, so how did the embryo start growing?
Corrected entry: Quinn's men have fireproof suits, but the only time they use them they take them off just as the dragon reappears. The later expeditions ignore the suits completely, and they don't even attempt to use them when their castle is on fire.
Corrected entry: The Americans claim to have been on their own, but the plane they used would require in-flight refueling to make it across the Atlantic Ocean.
Corrected entry: Where do the Americans get the fuel to run their trucks, tanks, helicopter, etc.? I did not see any fuel trucks in their convoy.
Corrected entry: Van Zan says that Twilight is the magical hour, the dragons cannot focus or see clearly at that time of day. When Van Zan is fighting the bull dragon and jumps from the tower, how was the dragon able to judge timing and distance in order to catch and eat Van Zan?
Corrected entry: When the male dragon destroys the castle he breathes fire down into the basement. The blast kills Quinn's friend and closes the metal door. Quinns hits the door with his hands as he tries to open it but recoils because the fire apparently heated the door. Since the sprinkler installation is working and even the door is wet the water should evaporate but there is no steam at all. So the door cannot be that hot, can it? (01:15:25)
Corrected entry: In the scene when Quinn rescues the runaway group in the veggie patch, there were guys in fireproof suits operating the hoses on the roofs of the 2 trucks. Then a guy in normal clothes took over one of the hoses. Wouldn't it have been smarter and safer to let the guy in the fireproof suit operate the hose? It was a tremendously stupid thing to do, considering he got cooked moments later.
Corrected entry: Not only is there the question of how the surviving humans have obtained fuel for their vehicles, but where is the electricity coming from that powers the lights and radio receivers that the humans use. Yes, it could be generators, but you never hear any generators running anywhere in their camp and those things are pretty loud.
Corrected entry: One scene states that the original dragon was awoken in 2008. The rest of the film takes place in 2020, a gap of twelve years. However, in the scene just before the helicopter arrives at the castle, a character states that no-one has flown in 20 years. Has flying gone out of fashion by 2008?
Corrected entry: When the male dragon attacks the castle, Quinn and his group takes shelter in the cellar. When they emerge, the entire castle is burnt to the ground - except for a pile of logs at the top of the cellar stairs.
Corrected entry: Where were they getting the plastic for their theater costumes and the fabric for their clothing? Where were they making ammo for their guns? Where was the pasture for the horses? And why waste food keeping horses alive? The amount of logistical holes in this movie is incredible.
Corrected entry: It was stated that there is one male dragon, which reproduces with all the females. It's strange how there were millions of offspring, and not a single one of them turned out to be a male dragon.
Corrected entry: When you open up the "Making of the Dragons" feature on the DVD, it says the movie takes place in 2084 when it in fact takes place in 2020.
Corrected entry: It seems strange to me that they still had working fire extinguishers, especially since they have to be repressurized about every five years.
Corrected entry: After the 20 year leap into the future, Quinn is talking to the engineer (so I assume). Sometime later, the engineer is killed; yet why is he visible during the scene where the Americans are recruiting for the attack on London? He's on the far right.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Van Zan's troops get attacked by the male dragon in London, they are just standing clustered together, doing little but getting killed. No heavy machine gun nor the tank cannon is fired at the dragon, who takes its time to burn the soldiers. And even if they were caught by surprise, at least the tank crew should not be killed. Especially if Van Zan can survive lying under it.
Corrected entry: Supposedly the dragons have burned the whole land to ash, and indeed throughout the movie we never see a single tree. But Van Zan finds plenty of huge logs for a funeral pyre after some of his men died.
Corrected entry: The first dragon awakes and we are treated with newspaper clippings of their reign of terror and then we jump ahead to 2020 where we see Van Zan taking out dragons with pretty average weapons, so how did the world's combined military forces lose to these things?
Corrected entry: When the dragon slayers arrive in London they are very concerned about moving quietly so the dragons don't spot them. Why then didn't the dragons spot the helicopter they arrived in?
Corrected entry: The dragons eat ash (weird, but they do say that). Supposedly the dragons are starving, yet nearly every scene in the film is covered with ash from horizon to horizon.
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie, there was only one dragon (which was male). Where did the female dragons come from by the end of the movie, when there was only one male dragon to start with?
Corrected entry: In the end, the male dragon was killed and very soon after that, the world went to peace and people started rebuilding the world. However, where did that thousands of female dragons go? They can't possibly just disappear if they have lived for billions of years already.
Corrected entry: If the C4-Bolts can kill a dragon, then a nuke would be able to as well. Just before the convoy is destroyed by the male dragon, one of the soldiers says "This must have been done by the nukes", referring to the destruction around them. If there were nukes launched nearby, they would easily have reached the area where the male's lair was. No matter how big that male is, a nuke would have killed it.
