I agree. Their problem was that they hired a director that was a fan of D&D, but just not very good. They also put it in a setting that had no fan base, and made it more or less full of silly kid's stuff - pre-Lord of the Rings, that's pretty much how all of medieval fantasy was treated.
But yeah, it could have been tons better. Give it to someone like Guillermo del Toro.
