I have friends who’ve played the table-top, role-playing fantasy game Dungeons and Dragons (D&D), but I haven’t played ever. My friends tell me I’m missing out, but none of them will explain and teach me how to play, and all I know is that players can create their own characters and adventures. Whether Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves keeps true to the spirit of the game, I can’t say. However, as a film, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein’s execution pays off in a major way. Written by Daley, Goldstein and Michael Gilio, the movie that just opened SXSW has an all-star cast including Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Hugh Grant, Regé-Jean Page, Justice Smith, Sophia Lillis and Daisy Head.
Things begin in a world where monsters, creatures and humans live and work together. Edgin “The Bard” (Pine), a single father who has been separated from his daughter Kira (Chloe Coleman) for two years, and his best friend Holga “The Barbarian” (Rodriguez) are cell mates in a medieval supermax prison due to a botched heist gone wrong. The two eventually escape, with the plan for Edgin to be reunited with his daughter and one of his old partners, Forge (Grant), who has been his child’s guardian since he’s been imprisoned.
