The average episode of Xena or Hercules offers a more compelling and imaginative photoplay.
The special effects ... are nothing special, which is as close as this painfully derivative clunker is ever going to get to a ringing endorsement.
The movie has the cheap software look of something found on the Space channel at 4 a.m.
This movie may be the clumsiest, most inept cinematic exploitation of an item with kid appeal that we have yet seen.
| Original Score: 1/4
Without Irons' hamming, there wouldn't be much to chew on in this exasperatingly plotted mess.
Sinks in a sea of cheesy effects, cheap clichés, dispiriting narrative and the one thing an action fantasy can't afford: boredom.
It's not so much like stepping into the pages of The Hobbit as being thrust into the random action of a video game.
Alas, much of the dialogue is the silliest sort of fantasy mush, and a good deal of the picture appears to have been shot while the lighting guys were out to lunch.
A splashy, silly movie that inexplicably stars Jeremy Irons but will delight 10-year-old boys across the realm.
The Wayans role is a total cringe -- a cowardly and stupid nonstop talker who is easily manipulated by and wholly devoted to his mentally superior buddy.
If you don't like the movie, it's solely because you're not a fan of this type of escapism. It couldn't possibly be because the movie stinks. Well, this one does.
A mildly entertaining but tepid extravaganza more suited to television than the big screen.
This tacky-looking, incoherent, badly acted and hopelessly directed disaster is easily the dullest adventure film of 2000.
All the dungeon masters, warriors and illusionists out there who have devoted countless late-night hours to D&D have a right to feel disrespected, if not insulted.
The disconnects are so strange that with a little more effort, they could have become a style.
Consists of a barrage of poorly staged fight scenes and dialogue that not even Arnold Schwarzeneggar in Conan the Barbarian could bring himself to utter.
| Original Score: 0.5/5
An ambitious spectacle that should enthrall preteens and remind their parents of the innovative daring of the Star Wars movies.
The sad truth is, I can say nothing to recommend this film.
Maybe I should let a role of the dice determine whether I use a cudgel or a broadsword to put this puppy out of its misery?
Gamer geeks, I speak your language! And I warn you: Flee!
It's difficult to imagine either a casual player or a devotee (let alone someone unfamiliar with the game) finding much to enjoy in this horribly slapdash affair.
The story often thrills with its message about the sinister homogeneity of evil and how good can prevail only if diverse types join together to do what's right.
The special effects range from good to kinda silly. The dialogue, unfortunately, is mostly silly.
