Wrath of the Dragon God was a pleasant surprise .. a bit more mature in theme with some excellent screen effects.
These are two great movies to watch with the grand-kids .. and if the kids won't behave, kick them out and enjoy the popcorn yourself.
These poor souls have suffered through some of the worst adaptations in movie history, namely the "Dungeons and Dragons" movie -- nonsensical, horribly produced, and filled with abysmal acting and writing. In fact, it's so bad that the SyFy sequel "Dungeons and Dragons: Wrath of the Dragon God" was a huge step up.
In "Dungeons and Dragons," the evil mage Profion (Jeremy Irons) wants to overthrow the pure-hearted Empress (Thora Birch), and her only chance is to get the Rod of Savrille (it's French?) which controls red dragons. But the secret location of the Rod has fallen into the hands of an apprentice mage, a pair of idiot thieves, a drunken dwarf and a snotty elf.
Honestly, that movie is so bad that it makes you want to impale yourself on a barbecue fork -- it's actually watchable only in a MST3K way. With that in mind, the sequel literally cannot get any worse... and it doesn't.
In "Dungeons and Dragons: Wrath of the Dragon God," the dragon god Falazure is waking in his mountain prison, because a hammy baddie from the first movie has captured a magical orb with his power. Ex-knight Berek (Mark Dymond) assembles the usual crew -- an elf wizard, a thief, a barbarian warrior, and a cleric -- and sets out to capture the orb before the world is destroyed (and his wife turns into a zombie... don't ask).
Anyone who has heard of THE WORST fantasy movies in existence will hear of the original "Dungeons and Dragons," right alongside such gems as Eragon and In the Name of the King - A Dungeon Siege Tale. And honestly, it deserves all the scorn heaped upon it -- exactly ten seconds into this movie, you can see the despairing look in Jeremy Irons' eyes right before he gives up even trying.Read more ›
Okay, the movies weren't as spectacular as one would expect from a major enterprise as Dungeons and Dragons. In fact, these would be classified as "grade-B" movies, because of the writing and the fact that there are no major stars in it at all! However, I found both to be enjoyable flicks to pass the time on a rainy day. I particularly enjoyed everyone's reaction when the swordsman walked up and OPENED the eye of the sleeping dragon, making it clear that it was no rock formation! I've been waiting for certain movies to come out on Blu-ray, and while I probably would never have purchased these movies individually, I did go for it when they offered both at once! Warning: you have to be a fan of the role-playing game to enjoy certain aspects of the movie, such as a gem of true seeing and the staff of lightning bolts! The bonus section SHOULD have included the main characters' character sheets, but alas, the producers never thought of it.
I can watch this film every few months and thoroughly enjoy it! To put that in context, I am a male in his mid-fifties, and other films I enjoy watching every few months are Underworld, The Mummy, Serenity, the Blade movies, Push, Constantine, Van Helsing, Gothika, The Chronicles of Riddick, Resident Evil, Blade Runner, and The 13th Warrior (and Coraline and D.E.B.S., but they're in a different genre from the others). Several of these movies just aren't that great the first time -- Van Helsing in particular comes to mind -- but they really grow on you, and allow you to enjoy "being there" with them. At least, after you finally figure out just where the heck "there" is!

I got this for my step son for his birthday because he loves dungeons and dragons. He said that the first movie isn't very good, but the second movie is much better. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Sarah Allen
I like humor with my fantasies, since the first Star Wars. Adults can enjoy this one with children, despite the violence and bloodshed, simply because it is obviously fantasy. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Della Ferguson Novick
