Verdict on Dungeons & Dragons: Honour Among Thieves
Dungeons & Dragons: Honour Among Thieves is a fantasy action adventure movie based on the popular board game. It follows an unlikely group of thieves as they look to put together an elaborate plan to stop an evil presence.
The movie is quite rightfully being compared to Guardians of the Galaxy and Lord of the Rings. It has a tone that brings natural laughs and tries to break down the typical stereotypes. There is a lot of character building with the use of flashbacks which plays into the game itself. This includes one of the massive moments playing out how you could see the board game work.
On the other side of things, everything seems pretty easy to see what is going to happen. It is enjoyable to watch and the cast work very well together. Chris Pine and Michelle Rodriguez get plenty of banter. While Justice Smith bring the insecurity around his character.
Final Thoughts – Dungeons & Dragons: Honour Among Thieves is a fun time for the whole family.
