Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves Parents Guide

Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves Age Rating Parents Guide
Let’s take a look at what parents need to know about the age rating of the movie before letting their younger children watch Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves.
Language: Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves contains some strong language, with light profanity used throughout. Stronger words include sh*t, son of a b*tch, d*mmit, b*st*rd, hell, and prick.
Mature Content: Other than the bad language mentioned above, the other big indicators of adult themes include persistent violence. Some of the violent scenes include hand-to-hand combat, weapons and swords used, dangerous situations that put characters lives in peril, some beheadings, and battles with dark creatures and dragons. Many of the creatures injure, eat, and kill characters, and plenty of dark magic is used. There is a scene that includes raising corpses from the dead, and another that will remind some viewers of films like The Maze Runner and The Hunger Games.
Age Rating of Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves: Paramount Pictures Dungeon & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves has a PG-13 rating for intense violence and language, and the parents’ advisory recommends it for an adult audience, younger adults, and teens 13 and older. The suggestion of parental guidance or an adult guardian is highly suggested for younger kids (or older kids) under 13 years of age for this PG-13-rated film. The minimum age recommendation is 13 years old; it is not suitable for young children. Young viewers are not recommended to view this film.
Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves is a total blast that is clever, well written, and absolutely hilarious. To be totally honest, I was not expecting the movie to be this funny, and it is rare to watch an action flick such as this and see every single joke land and land well. The dialogue between characters, the situation comedy, and the one-liner quips are perfectly timed and do not wear out their welcome, like one would expect to find in many of these types of films.
Dungeon & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves includes an incredible and talented cast that all brought something to the film with their strong performances. Chris Pine and Michelle Rodriguez play sort of the odd couple, Edgin and Holga, who have been in prison together for the last two years for theft. Pine and Rodriguez have great chemistry together and play off each other well, with Pine being the charismatic sweet-talker and Rodriguez being the quieter one who brings the brawn. While Edgin and Holga are the center of the story, they are very much part of a team along with Sophia Lillis and Justice Smith. Lillis plays Doric, a Tiefling (who can shapeshift into an animal) who is not fond of humans but is strong and confident in her own skin, whatever that happens to be at the time. Juxtaposed to Simon, played by Justice Smith, is a sorcerer who lacks self-confidence and magic skills. I would be amiss not to also mention the heartthrob Regé-Jean Page, who plays Xenk the Paladin, who has an ease and calmness about his character that exudes a goodness that is contagious. Add in the evil Hugh Grant as Forge and his partner in crime, Daisy Head (Sofina), who is as menacing as she is bald in the film, and you have a perfect cast recipe for success.
Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves not only tells a fantastic story, but it is visually stunning, from the beautiful landscapes to the CGI effects and the creatures created using puppets. Viewers will not want to take their eyes off the screen, and the film transports viewers into the fantasy world with a welcoming hand. There is nothing bad I can say about this film, and with the unsuccessful attempts in the past to make a “good” movie that is based on the D&D game, this new film has finally rolled a natural 20. Lifelong fans of the game have been waiting forever for this moment, and here is hoping for its success so that sequels will spawn accordingly.
