THE ABSTRACT: Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves not only delivers, but also surprises. (REVIEW)

Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves delivers a thrilling and heartfelt adventure, packed with humor and excitement. The film, inspired by the famous tabletop game, skillfully avoids the pitfalls of its 2000 predecessor, offering a lighthearted journey reminiscent of 1980s fantasy classics Willow and Dragonslayer. Directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, the movie boasts a seamless narrative thanks to their collaboration with screenwriter Michael Gilio and story contributor Chris McKay.

Starring Chris Pine and Michelle Rodriguez as Edgin and Holga, the story follows the duo as they break free from prison and embark on a magical heist. Edgin seeks redemption in the eyes of his estranged daughter Kira, played by Chloe Coleman. The ensemble cast also features Hugh Grant, Justice Smith, Sophia Lillis, Daisy Head, and Regé-Jean Page, who all bring depth to their characters and contribute to the film’s humor.

The storyline revolves around the protagonists’ quest for magical objects, while also showcasing their individual talents and growth. The cinematography by Barry Peterson and the visual effects team create a captivating world, with memorable scenes such as Doric’s shape-shifting escape from a castle and a gravity-defying portal sequence.

Pine and Rodriguez’s chemistry shines, blending Edgin’s cunning plans with Holga’s combat skills. Their characters’ inner struggles add depth to their on-screen personas, as they navigate past regrets and rediscover their purpose. The film’s comedic moments are well-timed, with standouts including a graveyard expedition and a dragon battle, and its emotional beats hit just as effectively.

Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves is an enchanting and engaging experience, with a rich storyline and captivating characters that keep the audience invested from beginning to end.
