It is what it is...
This movie is for Dragon Age fans. It's for people who are tired of Kirkwall, who want to see more of the DA universe, and can't wait for Dragon Age III.
If you watch this without any previous knowledge of the games, you'll most likely get bored after a while. The story's kinda dumb and predictable, dialog and voice-acting is over-the-top at times. Graphics are decent but won't win any awards.
But if you played the games and like the DA universe, the standard reviewing pros and cons don't really matter. You'll be like 'wow, that's that kind of monster I used to kill a lot of' and 'I wonder if any of these characters will appear in DAIII'.
So it's true that this movie is pretty mediocre, but still it's nice to see new adventures from Thedas. Bioware has already announced that there won't be any more DA2 content, and DA3 is still a long ways to go, so this movie is perfect to pass the time while we wait.
Also, it's set in Orlais, where DA3 will supposedly be set, so it stands to reason that there will be some overlap, also this is just speculation on my part.
