Novels rocked, the movie not so much. Out of date inconsistent animation mixed with cgi. Story was changed in some ways from the novel, parts cut, outright changes in how things happened and just butchered IMO. I do know it is hard to compress a novel into the time frame but they did a real bad job here. Poor DVD menu. I could make a better dvd menu than these jokers. Justice was just not done for this film. Maybe they spent all the money on the name brand actors for the voice work.
I was really looking forward to this movie since I loved the books as a kid. The movie, however, is definitely second rate. The animation, a blend of traditional and CGI, looks sloppy, and the dialogue sounds terrible. I was hoping for more.
When I first heard of this movie I was estatic,but now that I've finally got a chance to watch it, I'm not. The story was a fairly good adaptation, I was expeting alot of changes and omitions to get the length, but some of the big changes irked me, but overall not bad. Script gets 3 1/2 stars. Mostly, though, the animation appalled me. To begin with, there was no need to do the dragons/draconians in CG while leaving the rest of the movie in an old style, traditional cell shaded format, making a drastic difference in detail and motion between the heros and the dragons. Secondly, the blending between the two was horribly done barely lined up in some parts, and rather reminded me of public TV kid's shows where real people 'enter the cartoon world'. Save your money, buy it only if you must but I recomend you rent it first
Dragonlance series are great reads. This movie just plain, well, it is not what I had hoped for, even for an animated movie. Seems to me, the producers could have made a complete series out of this. I don't expect the excellence like Lord of the Rings, but, the story got destroyed, the animation was horrible "thought this was old time Japanese animation". They could have done a much, much better job. The problem is, if they DO come out with sequels, it will be hard for me to want to buy them based on the purely and utterly disappointment I feel from this release!
This movie does go by the book for the most part. The combination of the computer animation and the regular animation is something to behold. It does leave a few things out/doesn't expand on certain things like the book does, but it does wnat to make one go out and buy the book in oder to know the full story.
