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

Upon teleporting into Damodar's lair, Ormaline materializes with her arm inside of a stone pillar. At first she is shown with her arm entering the pillar between her elbow and wrist. Later, before she casts the second teleport spell, it is now between her elbow and shoulder. See more »

Quotes

Galtar: Any word of Berek on one of your travels?
Valerious: Do not put your faith in him, your Majesty. Any hope of saving Izmer will come from the King's Guard, and the strength of our steel.

Fun if you are a D&D fan, probably not so fun if you aren't.
9 October 2005 | by (St. Louis) – See all my reviews

The first D&D movie was largely hated by D&D players, partly because it wasn't a good movie, but also because it was not very much like D&D the game.

Perhaps because of the cool reception of the first, this was changed dramatically in the sequel. It now really is like the game, sure to provide lots of geek moments where viewers try to guess which spell is being cast or what magic item is being used. The characters also tend to act like D&D characters, and they actually explore a dungeon.

Unfortunately, as a movie, it has some shortcomings. For one, much of the acting is uninspired. Not bad, but about a wooden as a dummy of Keanu Reeves. The first movie also suffered from this problem, but in this movie, it's probably because most of the actors are new, this generally being their first film. Exception being Tim Stern, the guy playing the Rogue, who brought some life to his character.

The characterization and dialog isn't great, either. Less character development than in some commercials, even though this is a fairly long movie. But I chalk that up also to the inexperience of the screen writers (though also is relatively common in D&D games, so perhaps is a feature, not a bug).

When it comes to special effects, they are about on par with Sci-Fi channel offerings. Slightly better. Lord of the Rings it ain't. But not terrible, either.

Still, just judging it as a fantasy movie, it's much better than most other low budget ones. Worth watching. And for D&D players, it's a lot of fun.
