Why is it that almost every D&D style movie is bad? Besides the fact that they have no budget, no one that can act and the script is beyond help...can they at least come up with some way for the film not to suck so bad? Dragonfyre turned out to be a complete waste of time.
I knew going in that this was going to be horrible. This was on a whole new level of bad. The effects sucked, save for the one dragon they had. That was not a bad job with the dragon CGI. The rest...oh dear god. The fight sequences were beyond sucky. They really needed to teach these actors how to fight and hold the various weapons.
And the story, portals between realms through a cave? Well, it can work for Asgard and the Marvel Universe. So, it might have worked here. But geez.
Now I know that we should be a bit more appreciative that an effort was made. There is only so much that can be done with a script. And the actors can only do what they are ultimately directed to do. But people do need experience to possibly move on to the next level. So, not seeing anyone move on to the next level here. Well, one of the Orcs might, but the rest. Hell no.
