‘Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves’ kicked off as an adaptation. The world of cinema has always been full of adaptations, from books to plays. Since the early 90’s video game adaptations started being made (with terrible results at first) and soon after Hollywood turned to board games, specifically adapting three movies from Dungeons and Dragons (Each less successful than the last.) For this reason, the announcement of a new film adaptation of the popular board game has its fans shaking with excitement and fear…the latter, thankfully, of unjustified manner.
The movie of Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Thieves tells the story of Edgin (Chris Pine), a bard and thief who, together with his faithful companion Hoplga (Michelle Rodriguez) must assemble a team to recover Kira (Chloe Coleman), Edgin’s daughter who is now in custody de Forge (Hugh Grant), Edgin’s traitorous ex-partner. This all happens with Simon (Justice Smith) and Doric (Sophia Liliks), who join them unconvinced and knowing that Forge isn’t really the greatest evil they have to face.

This band is completely disconnected from the formula that the previous ones followed and this is what leads it to success.; they leave aside the dark, sad and gloomy plot with the dark and pain-scarred protagonists to tell us a rather familiar and comical adventure, rooted in their characters and their experiences, which ends up reflecting the most important thing of the game : The good experiences that players live at the table.
The editing of the band has a very particular levelsince its director made sure that the key moments of a real game are reflected as they are told in the game. For those who play and know the importance of a success or failure in throwing As the story unfolds, it will be easy to identify these moments, while those less experienced will appreciate how the camera plays with space and focuses on specific moments in the tape.
