Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves – Movie Review

Ah, Dungeons & Dragons. The name alone is enough to transport you back to the good old days of Napster and dial-up internet. But, we’re not here to reminisce about the past. No, sir. We’ve got a new D&D movie to talk about, and it’s called Honor Among Thieves.

Now, I have to admit that I wasn’t particularly excited about this movie. I mean, the last D&D movie was a complete dumpster fire. And, let’s be real, it’s unfair to compare this movie to the last one just because they share the same name. But, you know how it is. Once you’ve been burned, you’re cautious about getting too close to the fire again.

But, to my surprise, this movie was a fu*king enjoyable time. Excuse my language, but it’s necessary. I mean, who knew that a fantasy comedy based on a role-playing game could be so much fun?

First of all, you have Chris Pine leading this film, and let me tell you, it’s perfect casting. Chris Pine is naturally charmingly funny, and it doesn’t feel like he’s trying too hard. You know how some people say funny things, and then there are people who say things funny? Well, Chris Pine falls into the latter category. He’s just being himself, and it works.

The rest of the cast is great too. You’ve got a mage, a barbarian, and even a paladin that makes a brief appearance. But, the real star of the show is the banter between the characters. It’s the kind of banter that you’d hear if you were sitting around a table playing D&D with your friends.

And, let me tell you, it’s refreshing to see a D&D movie where the lead good guy isn’t a warrior or a paladin. Nope, it’s Chris Pine’s bard. I mean, who doesn’t love a good bard?

The movie follows Chris Pine and his band of misfits as they try to save his daughter. It’s a fun twist on the classic “Save The Princess” trope, and it works. The group knows that they’re not the best hope to save the day, but they’re going to do their best anyway.

The movie’s vibe is spot-on, and it feels like you’re watching a group of friends play D&D. It’s a banter comedy, if you will, and it works. But, I can see how it might not be for everyone. Some people might watch it and think, “what the hell is this?” But, if you’re a D&D fan, then you’ll love it.

All in all, I highly recommend Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves. It’s a fun, lighthearted movie that doesn’t take itself too seriously. And, let’s be real, we could all use a little more fun and lightheartedness in our lives. So, grab some popcorn, get your friends together (or not, it’s a pandemic after all), and enjoy the movie. You won’t regret it.
