      Elvis D Esta secuela de Dungeons & Dragons se deriva de la película anterior tratando de mostrar otro enfoque. La película cuenta con un tono más oscuro y maduro. Bruce Payne regreso de nuevo esta vez como villano principal, dando a entender que aunque esta es una nueva historia, forma parte del universo de la película anterior. Lo correcto fue poner a Payne como el antagonista principal, lo cual fue una mejora para su personaje. Se podría ser que en aspecto visual llega a ser una película decente, pero al ser un proyecto de bajo presupuesto, tiene sus limitaciones. La historia es buena, pero tiene un ritmo algo lento. La película anterior tenía un cierto encanto por su pinta de película retro, pero el nuevo enfoque que se quiso dar aquí fue como para tratar de alejarse bastante de la primera película por la mala aceptación que tuvo. Los efectos digitales usados no son mejores o peores que los de la primera película. Son lo que uno esperaría de una película hecha para la televisión o el formato casero. No es una secuela muy buena que logre superar a su predecesora, pero en ciertos aspectos parece compensar un poco lo que algunos esperaban de una película de Dungeons & Dragons. Mi calificación final para esta película es un 7/10. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/07/23 Full Review Some Guy F At least the first one had Jeremy Irons overacting on purpose and giving a wink to the camera now and then. This movie doesn't even have that, making it slightly worse than the 2000 movie. That corny Vox Machina show is starting to look better by comparison to the other D&D media. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/25/23 Full Review Audience Member im pretty ashamed that this came out in my year. it is not good at all like the 2000 movie they try to make it seem like that this is a sequal but it's obviously not this movie is absolute shit had horrible characters, acting i hope this movie burns in cinema hell it's a waste of time dont watch it Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review robert b There's something charming that we almost got a Syfy Dungeons & Dragons TV show out of this. It doesn't keep it from being a teeth-grindingly bad movie. Worse they took Ismir, the original setting the writer/director used to run his old college D&D games in, and stuff in a whole bunch of oddly specific references to Greyhawk, an entirely different D&D world. Now I'd love to see a Dungeons & Dragons movie set in Greyhawk someday--but cramming a bunch of random Greyhawk lore into the setting from the first movie is nothing but confusing and frustrating. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Dungeons and Dragons: The Elemental Might, also known as Dungeons and Dragons: Wrath of the Dragon God, is merely a sh*tload of waiting for the first part of the film. It manages to fall short of the entertainment value of its predecessor, even though that means it was falling short of the excessively criticised Dungeons and Dragons film. The high point of the first hour is the fact that there is excessive dramatization of a guy being slightly annoyed that he is trapped under a fallen tree. There aren?t any dungeons or dragons for the 51 minutes, rendering the title misleading. And by the time the ice dragon graces the screen with its surprisingly decent visual effects, I no longer cared. There was way too much talking without the interesting characters or good dialogue to give it any form of interest. It doesn?t feel like it was put together with any good intentions, even the intentions of making money. Dungeons and Dragons: The Elemental Might lacks the spirit of its predecessor, but has the same cheap look and lack of quality. Courtney Solomon did a better job as the director of Dungeons and Dragons than Gerry Lively did of Dungeons and Dragons: The Elemental Might, because at least Courtney Solomon had something vaguely interesting to work with, while Dungeons and Dragons: The Elemental Might has little dragons, less dungeons and no might. Dungeons and Dragons: The Elemental Might is absolutely abysmal. The main problem is that Dungeons and Dragons: The Elemental Might is excessively short on action. You're likely to find more action by reading this review of Dungeons and Dragons: The Elemental Might than you are by watching it. It's too short I on action, dragons and Bruce Payne. Bruce Payne still has the spirit in him, but his role and screentime is way too small. It's easy for him to steal the show, but there isn't much of a show for him to steal so it isn't much of an achievement. He's the most genial presence though. So Dungeons and Dragons: The Elemental Might is a terrible sequel to an unimpressive movie and squanders $10 million that Jim Jarmusch could have put to better use any day.

      John J. Puccio Movie Metropolis It resembles something made for the SyFy Channel.
