Good enough series
Verified purchase
I might have only given this 3 stars but for the numerous 1 star ratings. I noticed people saying this is no LoTR. I wouldn't be surprised if the budget for catering for LoTR exceeded the total budget these people had to work with. So yes, you do tend to get what you paid for. If this comes as a surprise, I recommend maybe you should get out more often.
Others said it lacked plot. Or the plot was full of holes. I can only guess that means those people didn't bother to see that this was a series and watch them in order. The alternative suggests a perception problem rather than an issue with the series. While I would love to believe I am perceptive far beyond normal mortal folk, I am not quite that stuck on myself.

What you have here is just a fair to good attempt at entertainment in the Dungeons&Dragons genre. For anyone thinking this is the worst ever, I strongly suggest you avoid a movie of that name by the way. My understanding is there is a reboot in the making, so be aware I am speaking of the 2000 edition of that movie.
To give a little better perspective, D&D the movie cost around $45mil to make. LoTR first movie cost around $93mil. The first movie in this series had something like $85000 to work with. So was it less than 1/1000th what LoTR was? Not in my opinion. Was it more than 1/500th of D&D the Movie? Positively with a lot of change back. You get what you pay for and sometimes a bit more. This is one of those times you got a bit more.

I had issues here and there like I said. Might just be me but I kept seeing a Snape and Voldemort cross as the bad guy. Not sure they could have come up with a totally unique look, but one that was far from commonplace might have been nice. Maybe the saddest thing about that is that I didn't watch all the HP movies so Snape and Voldie aren't that familiar to me. I had to check the spelling on the one name.
Another thing was the fight scenes. Got what they paid for which wasn't much but in defense of the actors, you could see some improvements things progressed.
And, that is another ouch with the series. Other than Dagen the half elf thief, I saw little character progression even though you could see the script asking for it. Not sure of that was the actors lack of ability to grow the characters or the director.

As a little further insight, this is the same studio that brought us Magellan and Survivor. Others as well that I have heard of but not seen. Check either of those out held against Mythica. All of them are far from amazing,, but Mythica is head and shoulders above the others.
Normally this would be at most a 3 star rating, but it does deserves some love because of the lower ratings from people that...well not sure what their issue was.

First off, the 5-movie series is finished and available. It’s not sequels, its five chapters. Amazon has the order mixed up. The correct order to watch this incredibly entertaining 510 minute (8 ½ hour) movie is:

Mythica: A Quest for Heroes
Mythica: The Darkspore
Mythica: The Necromancer
Mythica: The Iron Crown
Mythica: The Godslayer

The story has flaws, like all movies, but it is well told and suspenseful. The Characters end up being rather complex and grow with the experiences they find themselves thrust into. I thought the acting was fine and found myself rooting for all of them. I binge watched the whole thing one rainy Saturday. It was fun; the day flew by. The story could have been told in less time, but then we would have less movie to get lost in.

I'd rate it PG-13 for violence and mature themes.

Special note: The scenery was spectacular; I guessed New Zealand, but they claim it’s Utah. Who knew Utah has places like that.

Well played.

Maybe not 5 stars of quality, but it was 5 stars of enjoyment. I love D&D, and this captured the feeling of the game. Considering that this series was crowd funded, it was well done. The acting gets better as the series progresses, just like a game does as the players learn more about their characters and how best to team up. I really enjoyed the fact that it was filmed in Utah. I'm familiar with most of the places they filmed, so that endeared me to it even more. It was a great little adventure to come back to time and again. You knew something was going to happen every time Gojun Pye told Marek to "stay here until I get back." It's a good thing she finally listened to him in the end. The zombie girl was a fun side story, and a clever vehicle to soften Dagen and show he's truly caring. The love interests built the characters without hijacking the plot. The production never took itself so seriously that it couldn't have fun. After all, fun is the purpose of the game. Well played.

Incredible Series - LOVED IT!
Verified purchase
What makes this so special is the fact that it was not created by big name film production companies with tons of money. It was crowd funded. It has no big name actors. The very limited budget probably means the actors did a lot of their own stunts.

Sure it has faults. There are some inconsistencies in the storyline and the filming, low budget costuming (actors wearing bluejeans), and actors with buzzcuts that could only be done with a modern razor. I could totally picture Szorlock (the evil necromancer) in his mom's basement playing video games, which made him more comical than frightening. Zombie-girl disappears at some point in one movie, then reappears in another as if nothing happened. I went back multiple times to find the connection, but never did.

Despite these and other shortcomings, I was so engrossed in the story that I noted but dismissed these things. I thoroughly enjoyed every installment and was eager to see the next.

No, it's not LOTR, but it does have plenty going for it. Considering that LOTR had a lot of experience, money and big name actors, it may not be a fair comparison...or maybe it is. After all, there's a lot of trash on big screens made by big name companies. This series stands out as a gem. It might even prove that talent, ingenuity and a good story is really all it takes to make something worth watching. Not piles of cash and overpaid actors.

I very much hope they do make a part 6 and explore other works of fiction.

Low Budget movie, with a big surprise.
Verified purchase
FYI: My Review does contain some spoilers, nothing to big in my opinion but non the less it does give some key moments away. If you are that person, then don't read beyond this line. If you do then it is your fault and I don't want to hear about it.

I can not say this enough, this is a low budget movie, and to compare it to a big budget movie like Lord of the Rings would be rather dumb in my opinion. For low budget movie I found Mythica to be rather good and enjoyable. Honestly I wasn't expecting this at all. It definitely belongs to the D&D genre, and the plot is rather straight forward. I do not believe there was a lot of character development which sucks! The writers could have done a better job of character development, and added characters to the group. The fighting still could have been better as well, but I do understand that they probably couldn't afford that ether. I was always expecting Merick to become this badass mage/necromancer but it always seems that she could not get there. For instance look at the cover for this movie with the iron crown on her head. I was like omg, she is really going to bring it this time! In some instances she did, and others it was like watching a toddler trying to walk for the first time. Then there was some movie scenes that made you believe that was going to happen but never fully delivered it later on. The ending was okay, but could have been amazing even for this low budget film. I mean if the would have delivered on the Iron Crown with Meric then OMG, this would rival even some high budget films! The Hammer, and the Iron Crown was made to be this really huge deal, and super powerful! I felt like it was weak in comparison to what it was made out to be.

Okay okay, I hounded on the negatives and even gave some positives, but these movies excel in other ways the big budget films flop at. The continuity of the film is actually amazing! I mean it picks up right where it left off, and it made it enjoyable. If magic actually existed then this film would actually be very plausible, or say realistic! Meric's past didn't just vanish, in fact it followed her until her group fixed that issue. There was no political agenda in this movie that I can tell of, and that is a huge plus! To many movies try to push their ideology onto the viewers, and makes the movie less enjoyable. Where this movie series, it was all about the story, and what the characters went through. I do think there should have been a character swap between the bartender and the god of thor (not really thor but mocks him well enough) because the dwarf would have been better suited for that part in my opinion. The guy who played the hammer god was just way to big in height for that role. Still, it was pretty good.

All in all, good movie to kill time with. There are plenty of positives about this movie, and I wasn't begging god to give me life back for the time I wasted on this movie. Heck I wasn't even like Please God make it stop!!! It was just an enjoyable movie to watch, I may even rewatch the series again in a few years. FYI, I can't stand to rewatch movies over and over again.

Its good
Verified purchase
It's not cheaply made, and it's not overdone with CGI. The story and acting can be a bit cheesy, but I also argue that is the charm of this series. Whomever at Amazon got the sequencing wrong (Date wise). When I thought I was watching the next movie in consecutive order per date, it was actually the next movie. So big time spoiler. Most genuine characters were Dagen and Thane, but all the characters have likability.

... for a low budget fantasy SciFi series it as pretty damn good
Verified purchase
The movie was funded by a Kickstarter campaign and for a low budget fantasy SciFi series it as pretty damn good. No it's not a blockbuster and it isn't LOTR as many here choose to compare it to, but it is a solid movie with a great plot, good effects and decent acting. Have no idea why people even bring up LOTR, there has been fantasy movies just like this before lotr and will be more after so not everything should be compared to LOTR. Took me a while to watch all the movies in the series but well worth it. Truly enjoyed it and fell in love with the characters.

Fantastic Dungeons and Dragon Series.
Verified purchase
Did I enjoy the Mythica Series? Let just say that I watched all five movies twice in a row. Why you ask? Well, for starters I have seen the main protagonist in other movies and well as many of the supporting actors. Plus, up until this year, I was an avid PC video gamer who played the Dungeons and Dragons franchise---among other video games. Now I just watch movies.

I watch movies for their entertainment value. I don't watch them to criticise them. However, I will comment on how much I enjoyed the film of films. That said, If a film doesn't hold my interest in the first ten minutes, I am gone. Mythica is one of those series where I would consider purchasing all five movies, unlike the Star Wars series: And, I love Star Wars. Then again, I love Melanie Stone and Nicola Posner and Kevin Sorbo.
