The central premise, that dragons are unleashed on the world after workers on the London Underground penetrate an ancient cave, is laid out efficiently so that the plot can move on to important stuff like soldiers jumping out of helicopters and catching winged beasties in nets. The bulk of the film is set in the year , where Quinn leads a band of survivors through a Mad Max -style burned-out, English countryside. In saunters Van Zan McConaughey , the more-than-a-little unbalanced leader of a band of soldiers called the Kentucky Irregulars, with a dragon tooth necklace and some ideas on how to defeat the airborne menaces.

Jump to navigation. Acting is not an easy job. You have to train hard, look good, deny your food cravings, and pretty much look ravishing all the time. However, sometimes roles demand that you banish vanity altogether and completely change the way you look and dress. Case in point: Matthew McConaughey.

Matthew McConaughey to Christian Bale: Actors undergo drastic transformations for roles
I prefer Matthew McConaughey more now The Wolf of Wall street cameo was masterpeice, yet to see Dallas Buyers Club as he is a brilliant yet underated actor , he should do more solo movies I like both, but Bale wins in my books. Also he's ridiculously handsome and it was hilarious when he lost his shit on the set of Terminator Salvation. They're both different kind of actors so it's hard to compare the two. If you look at their careers overall Bale is the more consistent one HOWEVER this mcconassaince that is happening is one of the greatest hollywood comebacks ever and the fact that Matthew is going to be the lead in the next Nolan and Van Sant film means that it isn't over. I haven't seen any of Matt's normally I'd refer to actors by their last names, but I don't feel like getting the spelling right recent movies, but I've always kind of liked him. The responses here surprise me though, because I was under the impression that he was generally just considered a pretty-boy.
