Overview

The imaginary world of the world's most popular fantasy role-playing game comes to life in this special-effects laden adventure. In the Empire of Izmer, magic is the key to power in both the supernatural and political realms. The Mages are a sect who know the secrets of magic and use it to hold sway over the masses. The youthful Empress Savina (Thora Birch) wants to use her powers to bring justice and prosperity to all, but Profion (Jeremy Irons) is an evil Mage who wants to use his knowledge of magic to overthrow Savina and establish his own despotic rule. Through deceitful means, Profion wins away the special scepter that allows him to control the nation's Golden Dragons; Savina's only hope to recover the scepter and the rule of Izmer is to obtain the Rod of Savrille, a talisman that will give her powers over the Red Dragons, even more powerful than their golden counterparts. As Savina sets out to gain control of the Red Dragons, she gains a number of unlikely allies, including a pair of thieves, Snails (Marlon Wayans) and Ridely (Justin Wayans); a powerful dwarf, Elwood (Lee Arenberg); and Norda (Kristen Wilson), an elf with a gift for finding lost objects. Dungeons & Dragons also features Zoe McLellan, Bruce Payne, and Richard O'Brien, the latter of whom is best known as the writer and co-star of the perennial cult item The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Gregory Baird
There aren't many dungeons, but there are plenty of dragons in this fantasy-adventure extravaganza. Based on the phenomenal role-playing game, Dungeons & Dragons is set in a magical world of elves, trolls, and the like, with the story following a pair of thieves Justin Whalin and Marlon Wayans caught in the middle of a power struggle between an enchanting empress Thora Birch and a malevolent magician Jeremy Irons. The characterizations are clean and simple: Birch is the quintessence of sincere idealism; Whalin is handsome and brave; Wayans provides requisite sidekick humor; and Irons is just plain evil. But characters take a backseat to spectacular sword fights and some nifty special effects, including magic spells and swarms of flying, fire-breathing dragons that, when earthbound, stomp around with the same earth-shaking authority as the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park. It's a two-hour dose of pure fantasy. The New Line DVD includes deleted scenes, a making-of documentary, and a featurette on the history of adventure gaming.

    Amazing dragons, storyline, and special effects...

    An excellent movie. It has ton of awesome special effects and an awesome storline and amazing dragons. However, you mostly see most of the dragons toward the end of the movie during the big battle when they are flying all over the place. This movie will probally intrest those who like the game or if your like me and never played the game before you will still enjoy it if your in to fantasy and all that sort of stuff. This movie is highly recommended. 5-stars!

    A VERY ENTERTAINING FILM

    Pathetic Movie

    Critics say this movie has a cheap look and is badly directed. Despite the presence of talented actors, the performances are really bad, and additionally, some people are offended at Marlon Wayans' character, calling it a racist throwback to black stereotypes. With the release of Lord Of The Rings, we (D&D Fans) were FINALLY able to come out of the closet. It is a glowing moment for us after years of ridicule from co-workers... family.... peers.... etc from the age of 12. The Dungeon & Dragon's movie released in 2000 only ADDED to that pain! After watching LOTR with people unfamiliar with Wizards of The Coast products, I was able to broach the topic and get some of my friends interested in playing the D&D game. The ONLY amusement this movie has given us as fans is it's RIDICULE factor.... and even that pales after a minute or so. I'm baffled that there is talk of a sequel. Please read the 200+ reviews on 'another' site that lists reviews of this movie before wasting your money on this DVD. I suppose for those in the age range of 13yrs or younger will give this movie more than 1 star. Instead get Hawk the Slayer. It's low budget but at least it was an 'honest' attempt at making a good B movie unlike this one.

    Wonderful story of Good v. Evil!

    I love fantasy stories, and this is no exception. They're's action, adventure, and no shortage of humor and a dash of romance between Marina and Ridely. The end is wonderfully creative, but sadness does seep in. If I could have gave this movie 10 stars, I would have.

    A Lot of Fire Everywhere

    It all starts with 2 boys, Ridley and Snails, breaking into the magic school. There they meet Marina, a librarian. Together, the trio must embark on the adventure of a lifetime...
