Based on the famed role-playing game of the same name, the newest action/adventure film from directing duo Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley is a lot of fun while also updating the source material to make this movie an excellent experience. The action scenes are amazing, the story is a lot of fun and features many funny moments, and all of the jokes in this movie hit a home run. The main heroes of Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Justice Smith, Sophia Lillis, and Regé-Jean Page all deliver outstanding performances in this film. Their chemistry with each other is excellent, making them come off as a believable team that must save the world from impending doom. Hugh Grant is entertaining and over the top as the film's main antagonist. The film also comes across as an updated cross between "Lord of the Rings" and "Clash of the Titans," thanks to Goldstein and Daley's direction, action-packed story, and fantastic performances from the entire ensemble cast. "Dungeon & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves" is an excellent and fun adventure film that exceeds expectations and is the first big surprise of 2023.
