Paramount Pictures’ new Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves will hit theaters in just a few weeks. The first reactions to the film have now surfaced online as well.
The adventure film had a difficult production process and has been in the works for several years. Aside from all the legal issues and difficult production, the corona virus put an extra wrench in the works, causing the release to be postponed multiple times.
However, after years of delays Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves then it finally premiered early at last night’s South by Southwest 2023.
Don’t be distracted or swayed by the trailer, because the first reactions are extremely positive, aside from some mild criticism. It looks to be an extremely entertaining blockbuster to usher in spring. Comparisons are even made with Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) by James Gunn.
Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves emulates the energy of Guardians of the Galaxy and The Avengers with a chaotic story.
Daley & Goldstein offer fantastic humor and continuous shots as the cast seems to be having a good time.

DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS: HONOR AMONG THIEVES: Hey folks? This is exceptional. A drum-tight script brought to life by a cast of games. Hilarious without feeling embarrassed by the material. I fell in love early and it never faltered.

DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS: HONOR AMONG THIEVES is a hoot. I was never able to recap the plot on the fly, but it wholeheartedly embraces its weird fantasy/comedy tone. Keep in mind that I’ve never played D&D in my life, but I still had a great time. #SXSW pic.twitter.com/vzc4qwJBUF
