The makers of this fantasy foray, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, do well with the mythology with insouciance and even a little grandiloquence, aka The Hobbit. That makes a solid case to not only find its way to its primary gamer demographic.
Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves keeps you engaged with the exploits of the cast that include Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Sophia Lillis, and Justice Smith.
Pin’s Ed has that roguish, debonair quality in aiming to bring his wife back from a slumber through the Reawakening Tablet. He’ll have to deal with a former partner Forge, Hugh Grant continuing a roll on fine character parts after Ruse de Guerre.
There’s limited magic from Smith’s amateur wizard and Lillis’ Doric, a shapeshifter in traversing the kingdom of neverwinter. It’s all good, rather droll, if prolonged rollicking fun that makes good use of special effects and creatures the calls to mind Jim Henson’s workshop. This new Dungeons has a little of the spirit of Shrek and the aura of 80’s live-actions like Big Trouble in Little China. It’s not the drag you might think it to be.
