Like many fans of the D&D game, I looked forward to the D&D movie with eager anticipation. Would it be based on Forgotten Realms? Dragonlance? Spelljammer maybe? But no, the movie was set in an original world, apparently unrelated to the published settings the gamers are most familar with. "That's not so bad" I thought, "A lot of original campaigns are very imaginative and compelling." Unfortunately, this movie was neither.
The low points of this movie have been repeated again and again by other reviewers, but I echo them as valid. The characterization was abominable. Birch's empress was screechy and pouty, hardly giving the impression of a strong ruler with revolutionary ideas. Irons' villian was embarrassingly hammy. The dwarf is so poorly characterized he doesn't even seem to have a name, he is simply known as "the dwarf." The worst perfomance, however, was handed in by Wayans. His cowardly, incompetent "comic relef" harkened back to the African-American stereotypes featured in movies from the 30's and 40's. All he needed to say was "yassa" or "feets don't fail me now." to complete the picture.
The worst thing about this movie, however, was how the writers gave a token nod to the game without capturing any of its depth or details. Fans of the game are supposed to recognize the beholder in one scene which is employed as a watchdog (and an incompetent one at that). An audience member who would recognize a beholder, however, would also realize how ridiculous it is for one to occupy that role! Likewise the dragons are basically an effect on the screen. We are given no hint that dragons posses personalities, intelligence or any sense of granduer. The movie basically treats them as flying war machines.

OK, first things first true believers - The Curmudgeon is NOT a D&D fan. I've nothing against it or anything (I don't think it's nerdy or whatever), it's just never been my bag. But I was VERY excited when I saw this movie was being released. Why?

Simple - the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon, which was by far the coolest cartoon of the 1980's. It smoked He-Man, Thundercats and any other contender and became one of THE best experiences of childhood. So while a movie based on the board game would have been cool, I was secretly hoping for a movie based on the cartoon. Come on - Hank and his flaming bow and arrow? Sarcastic Eric and his shield (you'd think the Dungeon Master would have thrown a SWORD in there too?), Bobby the Barbarian.. and let's not forget the uber bad-ass - Vengar himself. Let's face it folks - done right, it would have been AWESOME.

But we didn't get that - we got, well.. who knows? The plot is so incoherent and amateurish it could have been based on a game of Hungry, Hungry Hippo's. And whilst great acting is never the prime goal in these sorts of movies, special mention MUST go to the utter lack of any conviction the actors here have in their performances, coming across as just stepping out of a Snow White pantomime.

And then there's Jeremy Irons. Bit of a superb actor is our Jeremy, and I'm sure he thought at first he had signed up to a classy fantasy movie, thinking perhaps of Sir Alec Guiness in Star Wars. Then he read the script and saw the talentless monkeys he was working with and went full out into giving the worst performance of his entire career, not so much saying his lines as yelling them and spitting at the camera in an attempt to hide his embarrassment. Easily the best thing of the movie.

After a dark and ominous opening narration, we see a great mage's chamber, almost completely taken up by the standard Giant Twirling Machine (a la "Dark Crystal"). Cut to a wild-eyed Profion (Irons), who paces toward the camera and STARES. But wait! he's just staring at the machinery behind us. Lightning sparks, and the wheels spins faster: a wand is being charged. Profion extatically darts to the machine, plucks the scepter, and proclaims: "Yes! At last!"
"Release him!" Profion commands. A henchman gasps; he's never to be seen again. Henchmen spin flywheels. A grate is raised, revealing an irate dragon. The beast spits fire, causing henchmen to scatter. Cut to one tripping and falling. Cut to another catching fire. Profion points his wand and rasps: "You are mine now! Come to me!" His blue-lipped right-hand man looks on admiringly. Then the spell is broken and the dragon gets mad. Profion crushes the beast with a portcullis and covers his face in frustration. There's always another day.
Thus begins a movie that does a disservice to the already-marred name of fantasy cinema, a genre with a "Conan" for every "Willow." "Dungeons & Dragons" is a relentlessly idiotic action-comedy that is best compared to Power Rangers: there's a lot of special effects and colorful scenery, but it's little more than computer-game grapics and some plastic armor on the orcs. To add insult, the movie has nothing to do with the game.
Alright, I take that back: there are a few things. There's a tiny, meaningless cameo of a beholder; and a hold spell is mentioned (though it's performed with rope); even the kingdom of Izmer looks like something an amateur DM threw together.
