A charming thief and a band of unlikely adventurers undertake an epic heist to retrieve a lost relic, but things go dangerously awry when they run afoul of the wrong people in this hilarious and action-packed adventure.
While I wouldn’t say it was perfect, (it was fairly predictable) it was a good movie overall. Decent cast, funny jokes and lots of mayhem. It was worth the watch and I would watch it again.
Looking forward to part 2
It took me two watch-throughs to be sure, but now I’m certain. Justice Smith was the best part of this movie. I loved seeing his character arc. He goes from not believing in himself to seeing he’s powerful and capable just like his arch nemesis. I think this is a great thing to show in a kids movie and he does it without being too obvious. I really hope to see more character development like this in future iterations of this movie. A little positivity goes a long way in times like we’re facing now.
I have a friend who is a D’n’D dungeon master. He told me to stay away from this film. I should’ve listened.
Great for game fans, meh for others
Lots of stuff happens then it is over. Two dimensional charaxters, boring story. For game lovers it is probably great. Otherwise, it is just a bunch of stuff going on with a bunch of misfired bits of intended comedy. Big FX movie but nothing else.
Its such a treat to get a funny adventure fantasy movie these days. Loved it. Great actors, cool bad guys.

Unless your really into D&D it’s not going to be your cup of tea.The fat dragons probably the only funny joke in the whole thing.

O.K. as a kid's movie. Good special-effects.
Great cast but the story was lacking. Rent, don’t buy.
This isn't the kind of D&D that's dark and gloomy, and filled with menace. Not like The Witcher or a lot of other Fantasy movies.
This is more a movie for kids. There are some dark themes, but it's bubbly and lighthearted in a lot of spots, and takes the obvious joke. There's some good graphics going on, and a few surprises.
I thought the actors did a great job, and found the movie entertaining.
Fantastically Awesome! 100% D&D 100% Awesome.

Let’s face it, movies (and entertainment for that matter) is subjective (for the most part). As far as I’m concerned, I loved this film. This is a movie that I will be watching over and over. It was just released and it’s already a go to comfort film. Having read other reviews, this movie doesn’t please everyone, but that also speaks volumes. A plethora of hardcore fans of the game (myself included) rave about this film. D&D aside, the Goonies and Princess Bride bride, and dare I say Big Trouble in Little China, are huge influences into the backbone of the film. The characters and story (for me) grabbed me and didn’t let go. I got sucked into the plot, lured by very like-able characters, on both sides of the Alignment chart. Very important, the characters, I wanted to care about them. The Johns have out done themselves with this. Specially effects do t overshadow the film, they enhance it. They are used to such a degree that both practical and special effects, enhance the scenes that they represent. I was immersed into the action, much like the first Jurassic Park film, and like that film, this movie gets me each time. My point? If this review has peaked your interest of this film (assuming you either haven’t seen it or want to give it another shot), my hope is you’ll find just as much enjoyment as I have. And if not, then you can say you saw a movie with a beginning middle and end. Peace, Love and a pillow.
