Dungeons & Dragons: Thief’s Honor Finally, fans of the beloved role-playing game admirable adaptationAnd don’t worry, newbies, you’ll be laughing and cheering along with the eager cosplay crowd. I catch fantasy adventure. The filmmakers have wisely avoided the failures that plague the genre and undermine previous efforts. My only minor issue is the long execution time. Scenes of the character’s extensive travels may have been truncated.
In the Forgotten Realms, bard Edgin Darvis (Chris Pine) and his ferocious potato-loving accomplice, barbarian Holga Kilgore (Michelle Rodriguez), sit in an icy cell. They have a parole hearing after two years of cold imprisonment. Chipper Ed tells Holga that she will be released. She is skeptical of her talkative partner’s exuberant confidence.
Ed stands before the parole board with deep regret. He wasn’t always a thief or a scoundrel. Ed used his musical talents as a cover. He was a proud member of Harper’s, an organization of spies serving the public interest. Ed eavesdropped on the criminals and reported their actions. He was happily married with a beautiful daughter.
Ed finds a respected board member missing. Despite his persistence in waiting, he is called upon to continue his reflection. Being good does not support a family. His mysterious eyes saw all treasures and loot. Ed pays a heavy price for his first theft. Alone, he was lucky enough to meet Holga. Then came Simon Omar (Justice Smith), a not-so-competent magician, and Forge Fitzwilliam (Hugh Grant), a well-spoken con man. They were an unstoppable team until they were joined by the dastardly Sophina (Daisy Head) and her dark magic. He and Holga foolishly succumbed to her ambitions. Lessons learned and payment of dues. It’s time to get back to our precious Kira (Chloe Coleman).
Dungeons & Dragons: Thief’s Honor Establish important relationships early. Ed’s confession in prison sets the stage for a reunion that doesn’t go as planned. A lot has changed while he and Holga have been apart. The team must forget its past failures in order to meet its epic challenges. This requires an incredible journey across stunning landscapes. It’s where you’ll meet new friends and formidable foes as you go on perilous quests.
Always a trusted commodity, Pine steers the ship with humility and charm. Rodriguez kicks you behind and breaks his leg. But she is neither savage nor mean. Holga has an innate sweetness and a nurturing personality that is vital to the development of the plot. They both do their best to inspire Simon. His struggle with low self-esteem threatens their risky bet. Grant got hit with publicity recently, but don’t let that ruin your experience, he almost steals the film.
Bravo to direct duo Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley (vacation, game night) to assemble such an interesting lead. If you don’t like the characters, the story won’t progress. There’s a tangible camaraderie that builds attachment, thrilling action, and pleasant surprises. You’ll cheer on the winning ensemble as they do everything from battling round dragons to comically reviving dead armies.
