Absolute Masterpiece

This is one of the best movies ever made. Jeremy Irons' iconic performance, the amazing effects, the genuinely hilarious comedy... I can't believe this movie is so underrated. I'm kidding this movie sucks but OH MAN is it funny.

Dont bother with this one

Has anyone seen the cartoon of D&D from the 1980's? well forget that. That was actually 10x better than this piece of dreck! I only watched the first half hour of this movie and then couldnt get up fast enough to take the Tape out of my VCR. Thank God that i recorded it off of HBO and didnt rent the movie. I would have wanted my money back. The characters are lame, the dialogue is even worse. DId a 10 yr old write this script? NO a 10yr old would have written a better one! Stay away from this piece of garbage. I was expecting a cool Sci-fi movie, instead i just wasted my time.

    Vintage fantasy epic is great, despite a too-graphic death.
