Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The average episode of Xena or Hercules offers a more compelling and imaginative photoplay."
‑ Scott Foundas, Variety
"This movie may be the clumsiest, most inept cinematic exploitation of an item with kid appeal that we have yet seen."
‑ Susan Stark, Detroit News
"We still like it better than Attack of the Clones . . ."
‑ James O'Ehley, Sci-Fi Movie Page
"TV-trained performers yelling at each other, second-rate computer-generated graphics failing to conjure up an enchanted world and Marlon Wayans doing what can only be called a heartfelt tribute to Butterfly McQueen..."
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"Decepcionante por donde quiera que se le vea"
‑ Jorge Avila Andrade, Moviola
"The special effects ... are nothing special, which is as close as this painfully derivative clunker is ever going to get to a ringing endorsement."
‑ Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter
"I doubt anyone will be cosplaying as Snails anytime, soon."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Most of the special effects have that vapory digital look that has become very ho-hum by now."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"Dungeons & Dragons, a misbegotten exercise in abject incompetence, produces all the magic and fun of a slow root canal."
‑ Rob Vaux, Flipside Movie Emporium
"Most of the movie is underlit and dank, which serves to minimize the distinct cartoonishness of the many computer-generated digital effects."
‑ James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
"The movie has the cheap software look of something found on the Space channel at 4 a.m."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"The movie reminded me of a trailer for a fantasy adventure, a highlights reel flashing by in pretty colors."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Any dungeon master worth his 20-sided dice could have whipped up a better scenario."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
"Spends too much time being a game of Dungeons and Dragons instead of telling a story."
‑ Andrew Manning, Radio Free Entertainment
"Dungeons and Dragons? More like dragging dung."
‑ Kamal 'The Diva' Larsuel, 3BlackChicks Review
