Think again and select a different movie...By KittyandSquish (1 review) from Surbiton , 25 Sep 2009
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHide
[Highly rated reviewer]I never thought I would find a fantasy film that makes the rather appalling Dungeon and Dragons film (staring Jeremy Irons) look like an amazing fantasy epic. Yet here we are.
The dialogue is appalling, and the special effects are way below par case to point being the 'Tree People' (they look like Morris Dancers wrapped in Ivy) and the sword fighting scenes are awful.
Really truly avoid... at the end of the film you end up feeling sorry for the actors. The only reason I have given this two stars is that at points its so bad its hilarious again I can only mention the Tree People.

Dragon Chronicles - Fire and IceBy Pebbly (84 reviews) from Driffield , 05 Mar 2010This was obviously done on the cheap as there was only one actress that I knew of, but on saying that it was not bad, not brilliant but a pleasant way to pass an hour or so. Scenery was beautiful even if the acting was a bit wooden at times.
Don't botherBy a customer from Wolverhampton , 15 Feb 2010This is a terrible film. I love cheesy fantasy films but I couldn't finish watching this. Horrible CGI, horrible attempts at English accents, horrible plot. There are no redeeming features to this film.
Don't bother with this one.By a customer from Northampton , 17 Jan 2010A rather dreary film.
If you like watching paint dry then ths is a film for you.
I dozed off several times during the film.
Average D&DBy a customer from Huntingdon , 17 Jan 2010This film reminded me of the many D&D fantasy films I used to watch in the 80s/90s. Don't get me wrong, the effects are brought up to date but it is a middle of the road fantasy film.
There are a few known stars; John Rhys-Davies (Gimli in Lord of the Rings and Prof in Slider series), Arnold Vosloo (from the Mummy and the new GI Joe film) and Amy Acker (from the Angel series where she played 'Fred' and Dollhouse). It is a shame because the film doesn't really warrant the cast. In fact Amy was quite an annoying, whining, I'm a 'girl power' princess character. I wish when films want to make a strong female character they wouldn't have to labour the fact. Just make her character strong!
Closest comparrison to the feel of the film is if the Mummy was 8/10 (imo), then this is a bearable 6/10 (if you're a fantasy fan only!).
I'd rather stick hot needles in my eyesBy FredCampbell (1 review) from Leeds , 13 Jan 2010It's only once a decade that film manages to bring together so many wooden actors, inane dialogue, feeble editing, piss poor directing and a story any 3 year old could have made up.
Daytime TV is more interesting than this movie.
It makes the BBC's dreadful series 'Merlin' look like an Oscar winning masterpiece.
Fortunately my DVD player packed in before the end of the film, if it had gone on any longer I think I would have hanged myself.
