I am happy to report that the D&D movie is incredibly loyal to the source material. It genuinely feels like this was a campaign someone DMed and the movie is all the better for it.
You know that really crazy RPG campaign you had? They adapted it into a movie. And yes it is glorious.
I think that accurately summarizes the movie’s vibes. 🤣
- Very faithful to game and lore
- OWLBEARS ARE AWESOME
- Really really funny
- Compelling theme of fatherhood and family throughout
- Great party of characters and solid acting
- So many favorite D&D creatures are showcased
- There are certain fight scenes, fun as they are, that suffer from the “Marvel-CGI” problem. There’s lots of cool effects and spectacle . . . but you don’t really feel like anyone is in danger.
