Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves review: “turns the board game into a big-screen treat”

Film-makers Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley (Game Night) have taken on a truly  forbidding Hollywood quest – to transform the world’s most beloved tabletop role-playing game into a big-screen epic, thus freeing it from years in development hell. 

Once a cult hobby, Dungeons & Dragons has enjoyed a massive Stranger Things-fuelled resurgence recently. Happily, this high-stakes roll of the 20-sided dice has magicked up a lavish, light-hearted, roaming, romping action comedy – one that banishes memories of the dire 2000 adaptation. Co-writing with Michael Gilio, Goldstein and Daley propel Chris Pine’s wisecracking bard Edgin and his band of medieval misfits into a daring, monster-mashing heist.
