Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves (2023) Movie Review – A fantasy worth watching

A fantasy worth watching

Sorcerers, portals, quests, and, of course, dungeons and dragons—this movie has all of the perfect ingredients for an epic adventure – and boy does it deliver.

In Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, Edgin’s family is torn apart by his decision to be part of an honorable secret society. He tries to fix it through thievery but ends up in jail, separated from his daughter for two years. His journey to reunite his family has him and his companions pillaging sacred burial grounds, visiting the Underdark, fighting sorcerers, and more.

The movie’s filmmakers have done an excellent job with this movie. With the exception of some embellished father-daughter drama, Honor Among Thieves really does feel like a Dungeons & Dragons game come to life. It completely fulfills that fantasy trip experience that everyone craves every now and then.

Honor Among Thieves is undeniably well cast too, with heavy hitters like Hugh Grant and Justice Smith over to Daisy Head (who play Genya in Shadow and Bone) as well as Michelle Rodriguez. Each actor does a stellar job of embodying their character, and each is well-developed, with personalities that are instantly established each time a new character is introduced.

Chris Pine makes the perfect Edgin too, combining both mischief and wit, while also remaining an honorable character.

This is one of those rare adventure movies that you can watch now and again and not get tired of. The sense of adventure that comes with quest-seeking, along with the humor, also gives it a little bit of a Princess Bride feel. You can’t help but smile or chuckle at certain moments. It also has surprisingly little crude language too, making it a great candidate for families to watch together.

Overall, Honor Among Thieves is a thoroughly enjoyable adventure fantasy film suitable for most ages, with some memorable laugh-out-loud moments. If they try to make a sequel (as great as that may be), it might be hard for it to live up to its predecessor. Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves really is that good.
