‘Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves’ (2023): A Highly Entertaining Movie of Adventure, Fantasy and Lots of Comedy

Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves is a movie starring Chris Pine and Michelle Rodriguez, as well as the great Hugh Grant with his peculiar (and marked) English accent… in the lands of Tolkien.

Very nice and with a lot more sense of humor than the previous ones. A film that blends comedy and the most inconsequential adventure genre very well.

The kind we all love.

And, above all, it knows how to distinguish itself in treatment and narrative approach from the rest of fantasy productions so hackneyed lately.

Movie review

Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves is easy to love, it knows how to win over the audience with a fantasy story that, told in the most entertaining way possible and full of jokes, knows how to make a niche among the ostentatious mega productions of this type (the Prime Video series, the HBO ones, and a long etcetera).

It has style and the effects, sometimes tremendous and others not so much, are not just a mere artifice. Here, obviously, everything is justified, and the imagination is the true protagonist. In addition, it has fantastic actors and Hugh Grant knows how to play a bad guy with style (and an overdone accent, beware).

That in the end it goes nowhere? It is a highly entertaining adventure film that, without the hype of other productions, takes the serious risk of going (slightly) unnoticed through the box office, but this film has everything to satisfy the young and the old, fans of Harry Potter and R.R. Martin alike, those fans of comedy and those of neorealism as well.

Well, no, those last won’t like it at all. You can’t please everyone.

It’s not the first time Chris Pine is out there jumping around and cracking jokes (he’s “the leading man” of the latest Star Trek movies) and Michelle Rodriguez is fantastic, but the main protagonist is the world created along with the fast-paced action (and sometimes a bit nonsensical, okay) and the relaxed tone of comedy that, we’re sure, will entertain everyone.

Enjoy it, a film that, at least, will make you laugh and have a good time.
