    Wow, what a movie! The acting was beyond anything I had seen before and the story was FANTASTIC! Forget the Lord of the Rings trilogy- this is what special effects should look like! On several occasions I had to rub my eyes in disbelief-the dragons looked real! I'm amazed that such a talented actor like Jeremy Irons hasnt managed to slip up yet- Dungeons and Dragons is yet another Wow, what a movie!

I also loved the costumes- they didnt take themselves too seriously and the locations- although very low budget and tacky, blew my mind! If I had to nominate just one film to take the title of 'Film of the Decade' it would be 'Mortal Kombat Anihilation' but 'Dungeons and Dragons' would be a close second!- Awesome. Expand

    All right, it wasn't Star Wars (episode IV) and it certainly wasn't Clash of the Titans, but it was one of the best movies I have ever seen. WHY??? Because I consider everything that goes into a movie, and judge it accordingly. The D&D movie was doomed from the start, and yet they still managed to pull it off. The movie's very existence is a freaking miracle. I was All right, it wasn't Star Wars (episode IV) and it certainly wasn't Clash of the Titans, but it was one of the best movies I have ever seen. WHY??? Because I consider everything that goes into a movie, and judge it accordingly. The D&D movie was doomed from the start, and yet they still managed to pull it off. The movie's very existence is a freaking miracle. I was expecting sock puppets and cardboard weapons, and was pleasantly surprized by not-too-bad CGI and interesting (albeit plastic looking) props. Really now, I would like to see any gamer with very little knowledge of making movies do much better. Although I have heard of an Independant Film called "the Gamers" coming out soon that is supposed to be pretty good. Gamers can be the worst critics ever, really. I am a dungeon master (and published author in over a dozen D&D books) and I have to deal with that kind of gamer all the time... "Third ed is too easy" "Can I have a +19 Sword of destruction" "Waaa!, dragons aren't supposed to eat halflings" .... really now, just lighten up a little and enjoy things. Its a game. And this was a movie, based on that game, directed and produced by a gamer, albeit not the best gamer, but I'd give him 100 exp for effort. It took him ten years, but he got it to the big screen. I liked it. I watched it several times. I own the DVD. I hope for a sequel (yeah, I know, keep dreaming). Oh well, I know this all seems likee sensless rambling, but I wrote it in ...30 seconds right...now. See what I mean? Unless you know the whole story, you may mistake something amazing for something dull. Expand

    At once laboriously expository and defiantly incomprehensible.

    Good intentions, bad writing.

    A cheap "Star Wars" rip-off with swords instead of light sabers.
