Dungeons & Dragons: Wrath of the Dragon God Reviews
Felt more like a D&D session rather than a fully imagined movie.
The appeal of a good game of D&D is that you have to imagine whats happening,and rely on the people around you to enhance the story. so turning it into merely a visual experience doesnt work, its like the entire concept is lost.
Although, there were some really cool dragons in this, which you hhave to appreciate.
I've seen some crap film's in my life but this just takes the piss out of all of them put together, to think people got payed for this poorly acted, badd cgi'd monstrosity of guff
aka 'Dungeons & Dragons 2: the elementle might'

view (optional)...Nothing but a great story for the fantsy relm lovers, bad acting and set kinda slow enough for somthing ...else to be done at the same time (who-ever said that skipping is the only thing that can be done doing two things at once) this takes a firm look at dragon slaying in a grand 3D (re-visited) scope of darkness and villiany, monters maidens and heros. Pretty cool overlooking the rest and just enjoy shouldn`t be missed.
Much much much better then the first film which for the most part everyone wisely pretends never happened. Acting is one par with most made for tv flicks and the effects are merely servicable. However the party acts like a team, they each have their roles to play within the group, you never get a sense that someones a liability rather then an asset (Marlon Wayans I'm looking at you). The villians are much more threating this time out (ie. they're competent). It does have the feel of a pilot episode at times but all in all holds together nicely. Not great and it won't win over any converts but fans of Dungeons & Dragons or the Fantasy Genra (sword and sorcery in particular) should be pleased.
The plot stretches the limits of your belief just a little too much though, doesn't hold much water. And the ending was a little too abrupt, which is why I didn't give it 4 stars.
