    A slightly better installment than the previous [first] movie. The folks who are going to complain about the special effects are ones who didn't grow up with the Ray Harryhausen movies and are a bit spoiled by modern CGI efforts like The Hobbit trilogy. But compared with the fantasy fare of the 80's this is a solid effort, both in terms of writing, acting and visuals. Yes, the props could look a bit more 'realistic' and the fight choreography is wanting, but if you just want to sit back and watch a D&D adventure play out on screen this is not a bad afternoon's entertainment with a bowl of popcorn.

    Felt like a filler doesn't have the charm of the first one

    The second in a Mythica series. I'm a NetFlix member and stumbled across the Mythica movies and starting watching them in order. The second movie is similar to the first installment. I enjoyed it and would recommend it to those looking for a watchable sword and sorcery movie. I'll watch the rest of the series. I like these "limited budget" movies as they aren't overwhelmed by special effects. I also enjoyed the extra features section on the DVD.

    Low budget but surprisingly adept fantasy. Some cheesy writing and the fact that you're obviously meant to watch several films for the entire plot lets it down a bit.

    Part two of four (as of the time I write this). While not as lively as the first, it still serves as a fun afternoon distraction for fans of the tabletop fantasy genre.

    D&D to the hilt. It's not a well made or well written film but it's definitely a labour of love from some people who have a great fondness and vision for the story they want to tell, and their enthusiasm is contagious. I quite enjoyed it. Oh, and that dragon is hilarious.

    A great idea for what could have been an engaging story, is completely destroyed by terrible acting and awful cinematography, for goodness sake don't spend money on this film.
