Without Irons' hamming, there wouldn't be much to chew on in this exasperatingly plotted mess.

The disconnects are so strange that with a little more effort, they could have become a style.

A low-rent, half-witted, too-late attempt to capitalize on the popularity of the game.

This film is an all-you-can-eat buffet of bad acting, and Jeremy Irons is going back for seconds, chewing up the scenery with utter shamelessness.

Dungeons & Dragons, a misbegotten exercise in abject incompetence, produces all the magic and fun of a slow root canal.

I doubt anyone will be cosplaying as Snails anytime, soon.

Any dungeon master worth his 20-sided dice could have whipped up a better scenario.

Dungeons and Dragons is the fantasy genre at its worst and will likely disgruntle even the most die-hard role-playing wonks.

Fans of the role-playing game will be distressed as they see their beloved world contorted into a travesty.

The movie reminded me of a trailer for a fantasy adventure, a highlights reel flashing by in pretty colors.

The special effects range from good to kinda silly. The dialogue, unfortunately, is mostly silly.

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.

This tacky-looking, incoherent, badly acted and hopelessly directed disaster is easily the dullest adventure film of 2000.

December 8, 2000
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.

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.

The movie has the cheap software look of something found on the Space channel at 4 a.m.
