Storyline

Based on the phenomenally successful role-playing game, Dungeons & Dragons 2 takes you deeper into the dark and fantastical world of this fantasy epic. When the evil sorcerer Damodar braves a perilous whirlwind vortex to steal the elemental black orb he declares a sinister plan of vengeance against the kingdom of Ismir. Berek, a decorated warrior, and Melora, an amateur sorceress join four heroes representing Intelligence, Wisdom, Honor and Strength to battle against Damodar's growing army of gruesome creatures, flying harpies and an ice dragon to reach a vault room holding the orb. Together, they build their own army to retrieve the orb using elemental forces to defeat Damodar before he summons the sleeping black dragon whose omnipotent evil powers could lay waste to the entire kingdom.

Trivia

The film has several explicit references to the AD&D game. A map during the opening credits contains the name "Yeenoghu", a demon lord from the game, and another demon lord from the game, "Jubilex", is mentioned by the characters several times. Also, several references contain the names of AD&D adventure modules (published scenarios). Berek mentions that Dorian helped him in the Ghost Tower of Inverness, a reference to module of the same name (C2). Nim asks Lux what happened to her brother at the "Barrier Peaks", a reference to the module "Expedition to the Barrier Peaks" (S3). Lux makes reference to the Shrine of the Kuo-Toa, a reference to the module of the same name (D2). See more »

Goofs

In the scene with the darkmantles falling from the ceiling, Berek's sword accidentally digs into the wall by the exit and leaves a mark when it digs in past the paint to the plaster underneath. Moments later in another shot, the mark is gone. See more »

Quotes

Nim: I don't like the look of this.
Lux: We all have to die some time.
Nim: Yes. But I'd prefer not right now.

Really not bad! Way better than the original
9 October 2005 | by (NC, USA) – See all my reviews

I am grading on a curve, but this movie was surprisingly good and faithful to the D&D theme. The actors are all unknowns and acquit themselves well, especially Clemency Burton-Hill.

This movie is superior in almost every way to the original--the acting is better (none of the overacting of Malcolm McDowell) and the dialogue is decent (cheesy, but not to a ridiculous degree like the original).

The best part is how faithful the movie is to D&D concepts like limited spell casting and a Lich controlling Wraiths. And for a $15 million dollar movie (according to IMDb), the producers did a great job of building lavish sets and costumes which give the appropriate mood and texture to the movie (again, in contrast to the fake and cheap sets of the original).

The weakest part of the movie were some of the computer effects. Understandable given the budget, but a bit of a distraction, especially since the climax uses a lot of it.

Giving this an 8 out of 10 since I'm grading on a scale (this movie was much superior to most direct-to-video or SciFi "original" movies).
