Dungeons & Dragons: Gentle Fantasy Nonsense Also Suitable for Non-Geeks | Film reviews
reviewrole playing Dungeons & Dragons Where players bring a world dominated by witches and trolls to life in their heads, wrongly declared dead dozens of times. Launched in the 70s, it came back again for several years and is now the starting point for a mass audience movie. It seems like a purely commercial affair, but the movie sometimes comes close to the fun of the original Pirates of the Caribbean From 2003.
In the movie, the world that fans of the game conjure up in their minds is literally shown. But fortunately, there is no shortage of crazy imagination during the search for smooth thief Edgin (Chris Pine), his tough companion Holga (Michelle Rodriguez), mean magician Simon and priest Doric (Sofia Lillis), who has changed into many animal forms. . There is a lot at stake, but the main thing is to get an amulet that can bring someone back to life and free Edgin’s daughter from an old traveling companion. It’s the kind of plot that only works with a bunch of winks.
This former traveling companion and con artist, Forge, is played by Hugh Grant, who has appeared in the most ridiculous villain roles in recent years (including the masterpiece). Paddington 2) who appears to be mocking his image as an idiot Brit. Perfect choice for Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, Who fortunately knows very well what it should be: comforting bullshit.
The fun also comes from Chris Pine (from Star Trek And Wonder Woman) who plays the main character as a type of Han Solo (from star Wars) who accidentally ended up in an alternate universe. More fun BridgertonRegé-Jean Page stars as a vain who takes his heroic role seriously, much to the annoyance of his fellow adventurers. Let him soon be the new James Bond.
The original game is associated with the nerd culture. The movie transcends this status with ease. It’s been a long time since an expensive Hollywood product filled with special effects exuded so much fun.
Directed by: John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein. Starring: Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Reggie Jean Page and Hugh Grant
