Dungeons & Dragons (2000) (part 10 of 10)
Before Profion can finish off the hero somehow, Marina leaps in! With a staff in hand, she knocks the Rod out of his hand. Yay, Marina! The other party members have teleported in too, so they can all take part in a big epic final fight!
Or not. Profion knocks Marina down, zaps the dwarf with some kind of magic electric stunning thing, and zaps Norda with a different looking kind of magic electric stunning thing. It was too much to hope that they’d be allowed even a moment of competence, wasn’t it?
But in the confusion, Ridley manages to grab the Rod. He taunts Profion, saying “Why don’t you pick on somebody your own size?”
Where are these lines coming from? Did the screenwriters roll percentile dice and check a big chart for results? Even the worst James Bond puns have some connection with the on-screen action.
Profion, naturally, doubts that Ridley can use the Rod of Sevillanas, but Ridley glowers harder and raises the Rod higher. Somewhere in the CGI battle scene a red dragon pauses. I guess distracting dragons is kind of like controlling them.
