Alas the Dungeons and Dragons movie I was hoping for will never be made by the fuzzy cute wokester movie company. Great if you are eight years old Not worth a dice roll if your not.
I didn’t expect much from this, and alls the better, because this movie is awesome & not something you rarely see nowadays: a family friendly adventure film. No obnoxious messaging, no gratuitous violence & language, just clever writing and some astonishing action scenes. Honor Among Thieves is a love letter to 80’s fantasy, with some Army Of Darkness and Marvel sprinkled on top. Superb cast, some brilliant FX shots & sight gags, and Michelle Rodriguez giving 120%. This movie probably won’t make a billion dollars in box office, but it deserves to. And if you did play DnD or watched the 80’s cartoon, there’s a few easter eggs in there for you too! The best popcorn movie of the year.
Sure, the Director (effectively DM) made a few rule changes for artistic style, every DM does it. My Table, My Rules is the DM battle cry against rules lawyers in a game. I think that says enough. The director did an amazing job and even if you're not a tabletop fan this is a great action movie in a fantasy setting.
This fourth film in the DUNGEONS & DRAGONS franchise is good fun and arguably the best yet. Oh, and Hugh Grant steals the movie!!!
Superb adventure with always something new coming up for the adventurers. Hasbro has great games transferring to movies like Battleship. Actors are A#1! As an 81 y/o, I love good movies. I will buy this one when it comes out on 4K.
We went to see the Dungeons & Dragons movie and it was great!!! I love Michelle Rodriguez playing off Chris Pine!! The humour was good and we really enjoyed the scenes of Michelle being the tough guy. My son plays this game and he said it was pretty spot on. We went on April 8th to the movie theatre. The only thing is we had a couple of very young boys in the theatre and I wasn't sure how their parents felt about the swearing a couple of times. But.... they will probably hear that kind of stuff around the school yard anyways!! All in all a fantastic movie for the whole family!!!!
It's just plain fun with lots of laugh, great action scenes, and Michelle Rodriguez kicks ass. I have recommended it to all of my friends for sheer entertainment value. Good for any age!
Very entertaining. Great character portrayals, good story
I had super low expectations going in but it was reasonably funny, had enough action scenes, and more entertaining than most of the garbage comic book movies spit out by Hollywood. It was not very serious in character tone and that actually worked. I do not know anything about D and D as a game so I cannot comment on the "transition" elements but its an easy 2 hours of entertainment.
Not compelling enough for adults... dialogue was boring, CGI was OK but full of the typical scenes with 2 magicians fighting, one bad, one good but cowardly, no real puzzles to solve, no chests with treasure, powers, food, or health so it missed one of D & D's main gaming strategies, actors were good and well cast, movie was colorful, it would be good for young people.
We thought it was good. We have never played Dungeons and Dragons but it had some good actors in it, so my husband and I (seniors) thought we would see it and we enjoyed it.
Doesn't matter whether you played Dungeons and Dragons, it was great! Characters well-developed, hilarious, great battle scenes, and a powerful moral at the end. PLEASE MAKE MORE LIKE THIS!
Even though we don't know much about the game, we loved the movie!, Very entertaining and enjoyable!
Whether you like Dungeons and Dragons (the game), or not, this movie will entertain you. It has all the right stuff to be great; acting, a good story, plots and sub-plots, characterization, great special effects. It is clearly a big budget film. I would say that it was equally as entertaining as any of the Guardians of the Galaxy movies.
Grew up on D&D and this was the fun and light tone Version. But good. If someone wants a dark and gritty D&D movie they'll have to wait for something down the road. This is for fans of Vox Machina and The 80s cartoon. Very MCU and TSR board game inspired
BEST MOVIE EVER MADE!
Made me and the family laugh lots.
I am excited to see the movie!
I got to see the movie as at a premier screening and it was very good. It has great characters, a solid story, and a lot of fun easter eggs if you are a D&D fan. I highly recommend you give it a try.
The trailer looks better then expected. Can't wait to see the movie. I'm hoping it's just as good as the vox anime series
Of course I haven't seen the movie yet because it's not released, but I've seen the trailer and I'm not impressed. I feel that if the trailer is any indication of the trailer, I don't think I'll watch the movie. I had played the game several times and am a fan of the game, but there has been soooo many DnD movies. I don't that this movie will be any different than the others. I hope on release day that I'm proven wrong, but no sorry.
why in the hell is Justice Smith always acting like a scared little girl in every single movie he gets cast in, like I want to like him but I swear he only goes for the roles in which the character he plays in movies are always portrayed as a damn p**sy that talks way too god damn much to the point he would do better in a role that the character had their mouth superglued shut. I am really really putting in a lot of faith for this movie to ACTUALLY be good with him being one of the characters.
