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

Valerious: Berek, you will always be my captain and I will never forget what you have taught me. Especially this last lesson.
Berek: And what lesson is that?
Valerious: To recognize...
[holds up the feather from Berek's helmet, showing he could have cut his head off, but didn't]
Valerious: When it is time to sheathe your sword... for good.

Skip the first ten minutes, otherwise good
8 October 2005 | by richard-bowersSee all my reviews

The first few minutes were the visual equivalent of a bad novel's prologue. Rathern than introducing the problem through the story, the bad guy tells you about himself and his plans, although not in enough specifics for it to make sense. Fortunately, the heroes don't watch the prologue, and they're reasonably good at explaining the plot to the viewers as the movie goes on.

The movie did a good job of using D&D terminology (arcane vs. divine magic, etc.) and had the feel of a typical D&D adventure. It was paced fairly well, and the acting was appropriate for an original Sci-Fi channel movie. The special effects were very well done, but some of them weren't too understandable unless you were a D&D player.

If you aren't a D&D fan, there's probably not much here for you. If you are, then it's worth watching, as long as you can avoid speculating on what color certain beasts are or complaining that certain things aren't the way they are in the manuals. Just assume their DM has house rules, OK?
