Dragonlance: Dragons of Autumn Twilight (review)

Based on a novel that’s based on a role-playing game that’s ripped off from The Lord of the Rings, this is about as watered-down as a sword-and-sorcery adventure can get. Have you heard the one about the wizard, the priestess, and the half-elven warrior who walk into a tavern? Well, it’s better than this sorry tale, which sees those poorly animated heroes fighting to save the pseudo-medieval world of Krynn from an evil goddess. Expect many bad jokes and frequent offing of orcs and other creatures that might be vile if they were better drawn. Don’t expect anything like a satisfying entertainment experience. Featuring the voices of Kiefer Sutherland and Lucy Lawless, who are probably grateful that you kinda can’t tell it’s them, and a couple of cobbled together bonuses about animation tests.
