Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at “Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves” the latest attempt to create a feature film out of the longtime role playing game.

Chris Pine plays Edgin, a former spy turned thief attempting to find the whereabouts of his daughter. When he finds that she has been taken by former comrade turned evil lord of Neverwinter (Hugh Grant, clearly having the time of his life), he gathers his former team of thieves to rescue his daughter.
