4. The Underwhelming Humour
Honour Among Thieves has clearly been designed as a broad-minded blockbuster intended to bring D&D to the mainstream masses, though where the film's plentiful comedy is concerned, writer-directors Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley perhaps end up playing things a bit too safe.
There's a lot of mild amusement to be found in the movie's humour, but a disappointing lack of truly gut-busting, laugh-out-loud moments.
Ultimately it feels rather reminiscent of a middle-to-lower-tier MCU film in that regard, picking the safest, most obvious avenue for a joke almost every single time.
This perhaps shouldn't be terribly surprising given that Goldstein and Daley were writers on Spider-Man: Homecoming, but given the uproarious potential of a movie featuring colourful characters in such an outlandish fantasy scenario, the humour ends up feeling a bit blunt-edged and unimaginative.
Not unpleasant by any means, but just too generic to make much of a lasting impression - bar a few inspired gags.
