Prepare to embark on a truly epic journey with Honor Among Thieves, a film that is sure to stir your emotions and ignite your imagination. With a running time of nearly two and a half hours, this sprawling fantasy-adventure demands your full attention as it immerses you in a richly imagined world filled with magic, mystery, and mayhem. While it may require a bit of effort to spot those references as a fan, the reward is a deeply satisfying and emotional experience that will leave you breathless. Against all odds, the filmmakers have succeeded in bringing the beloved game to life on the big screen, crafting a story that is sure to captivate both its loyal fans and newcomers alike. The film pays loving homage to its passionate tabletop gaming community by ensuring they make use of the existing source material. From its intricate game mechanics to its fantastical creatures and locations, Honor Among Thieves is a labor of love that shines with authenticity, and writers John Francis Daley, Jonathan Goldstein and Michael Gilio managed to bring these all together on the big screen with such skill and artistry that it feels entirely new and captivating.

As I watched Honor Among Thieves, I couldn’t help but feel swept away by the grandeur of the fantasy world it presented. The sprawling maps and familiar territory names hinted at a vast world that has yet to be explored, but what really captured my mind was the ease with which the story unfolded. Despite the intricate lengthy plot, I never once felt overwhelmed or lost. The essential information was always easy to digest, allowing me to fully immerse myself in the story without getting bogged down in unnecessary details.



The world-building is so intricate and expansive that it transports you to a place of sword and magic, thanks to modern special effects. I can especially see the labor of love that went into the stunningly detailed costumes and the imaginative practical effects used on some creatures. The graveyard, the Underdark and the gladiatorial maze scenes are prime examples of how the film skillfully balances dark humor with thrilling action, leaving you on the edge of your seat. And when the “Oh Lawd, he comin!” great Themberchaud make his appearance, you can’t help run the opposite direction too. While some visual effects may not be perfect, the overall experience of the film is so enchanting that you won’t be bothered by any minor imperfections.


Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves boasts a charismatic cast that brings humor, excitement and just the right amount of emotion to the screen. The film’s winding story serves up some of its most memorable scenes, including the captivating performances of Rege-Jean Page as noble Paladin Xenk Yendar (yes, ladies we know you’re watching this movie mostly because of him) and Hugh Grant as backstabbing rogue Forge (love his character in The Gentlemen). Chris Pine sets the film’s tone with his charming portrayal of bard and strategist Edgin. Although the comedy takes center stage, the action sequences featuring Michelle Rodriguez’s barbarian, Sophia Lillis’ druid and Justice Smith’s wizard are thrilling. Overall, the cast seems to be having a blast with the material, making Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves an enjoyable adventure.

So, if you’re looking for something new to watch amongst all the other blockbusters out there, gather your friends, take a chance at rolling the dice, and prepare for an unforgettable ride that will leave you wondering, what’s it like playing the actual Dungeon and Dragons game?
