Synopsis


Warcraft
Humans and orcs clash in this feature-film adaptation of the popular fantasy video-game series. After realizing that their home is becoming uninhabitable, a race of orcs travel to the land of Azeroth. There, they encounter the realm's human denizens, who fight back against the invaders. In time, an orc warrior (Toby Kebbell) forges an alliance with a group of humans in order to overthrow his race's corrupt leader (Daniel Wu) and bring peace to the land. Directed by Duncan Jones (Moon), the film co-stars Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol), Ben Foster (3:10 to Yuma), Dominic Cooper (The Devil's Double), Ruth Negga (World War Z), and Travis Fimmel (Vikings). ~ Tom Ciampoli, Rovi

    Great For Fans, Bad For Everyone Else

    If you know your Warcraft lore, you'll find some likable moments in this movie. As average as it was, I still felt compelled to watch it a 2nd time as soon as I left the theatre...but I still didn't like it. It has so many things wrong with it. The pacing is all over the place. In the first 15 minutes of the film there is a sequence of 2-3 minutes in which it cuts into 3-4 different locations. So if you aren't knowledgable of Warcraft, you really don't get a chance to grasp what these places are and why they are important, a common theme throughout the movie. There is a lot of fan service, with little easter eggs and references to the games scattered thoughtfully throughout, but unfortunately that comes with the cost of some cringe inducing 'For Azeroth's escaping from the actors mouths from time to time. The acting isn't particularly good, and the makeup and costume quality, which ranges from ick to passable, but never good, doesn't help them much. When Blizzard turned down Ewe Boll to direct a Warcraft movie, I was happy. I thought "Yay, Blizzard won't let their franchise be mishandled. When the movie finally comes out, it will be good." I was wrong. It would have been worse under Ewe Boll's eyes, but Duncan Jones (the same guy who directed Moon, amazingly) managed to make a movie that is basically an Ewe Boll film if it were made by a twin of Ewe Boll's who had a thumb full more of talent than his brother. In short, if you're a fan...there is something here. You have to trudge through it to find the gem, but there is something. If you are not a fan of Warcraft, avoid this horrible movie, it isn't worth the trouble.

    I have never played the game before, but this movie was so good, that it actually made me want to start playing it. Lol. I can't speak for anyone else, but I know what I like, and I know I LOVED this movie. When it comes to a movie that has a good story, REALISTIC looking creatures, and good magical special effects, then those types of movies appeal to me. And this movie had it all. ...There was one thing that I saw that could stand to have been improved on, and thats the landscape, because the landscape adds to the realism of the movie. The mid and foreground of the set the actors were on was flawless, but the background looked as if it was a greeen screen in a small room. It would have been better if they had used a bigger set or a more opened one, for the larger battles, but thats just me. I watch a lot of movies, and I pay attention the realism of it all. ...But all-in-all, I loved the movie. ...Would I recommend it?? Absolutely!!!! ...I can't wait for the next part.

    Despite what the critics say and some of the non-critic professionals say, this is an amazing movie. I am not a gamer, and I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. This movie made me become a WarCraft fan. The cast of characters, the acting, the CGI, the story line, everything I so enjoyed. No spoiler alert no fairy tale ending, but can we please have a part 2 picking up where this one ended, I am ready to go see this. I am not sure why people who are not into a particular genre, become critics of it in general, for they would never appreciate it, so why criticize because that is all they do. Anyway, my view point is sit back relax and enjoy this well done cinematic viewing of this movie. I actually went back and saw it twice. If you did not see it due to listening to the critics, that's your bad. But don't listen to me I generally don't listen to critics at all and go see things for myself, and I'm rarely disappointed. I'm a movie buff and pretty old school, where we went to the movies to be entertained, not judgemental.

    I didn't get to see you all this morning in the theater but was glad when I bought it I enjoyed it Misle and watched it many times to catch things that I missed the first time. And discovered Easter eggs very much from catching other peoples reviews on YouTube and other online things. I think the CJ and this is quite good it works The lines are good characters are good so I think this will make a great trilogy or maybe more. But I want you to be the judge of, I still think you will like it and for being a computer game turned into a movie this one is not bad I didn't even made it is good. The storyline is good the action is good the actors are good so I think normal that deserves the five star I gave it. Please review this and tell me what you think of it, I was like reading other peoples comments on what they think of the movie reviews so right yours in so I can read it thank you. Bill

    Okay, I came into this movie not knowing much about the background. I really never played the game Warcraft, so for me I was hoping for a good fantasy epic style movie and with the Blu-ray/DVD/Digital edition on sale - I said why not - cheaper than going to the theater anyways! I was pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable this movie was. Unlike other attempts at CGI characters, the ones in Warcraft work very well. The special effects are very good - a little too CGI at moments, but nothing that distracts or detracts from the movie. I won't give away any spoilers - but unlike typically Hollywood endings - characters win and lose - both good and bad. There is a much bigger story going on and I can't wait for the sequels to continue it. If you go in with no preconceptions - I think you will really enjoy this movie. Its not perfect, but then again most movies aren't!

    This movie was ordered with two other movies and came in a day early from the USPS. It was handy to get it that promptly. We watched the movie and really enjoyed that old fight good over evil. It did have a very interesting surprise with the evil being the Guardian over the kingdom. The evil Guardian made is possible for the Orks to get to earth by setting up a portal by which they could come through to invade earth. It was a great story with lots of surprises that I don't want to mention here so that I don't ruin the movie for someone else. I already gave away one of the biggest surprises in the movie but remember could the King and his army overcome this obstacle and how did the Guardian end up this way? You'll all have to do like me and watch the movie to find out!

    Never played the game...

    I never played WoW, the game - I barely got to play the original Warcraft RTS games. Growing up, there was no way we could afford a computer to run WoW, so I just never pushed the issue. I know a few people who were saying "the movie doesn't follow the game," but because I never played the game, I had nothing to compare it to; therefore, I absolutely loved this movie. I was a little less than thrilled that Gorona just looked like she was painted green and given shoddy tusks for her movie costume, but maybe it was intended that way? I'm unsure. I loved the story line and CG though. Cannot wait for them to make a Starcraft movie...

    The most striking thing about the film is the meticulous attention to detail that Jones shows. It enables him to provide very sly moments of fan-service without detracting too much from the narrative. If you've played World of Warcraft, you'll be sure to catch a glimpse of something you recognize from your in-game adventures; but equally, Jones makes sure the story isn't too contrived so as to keep the general public engaged in the story. Aside from the lore detail, the CGI is simply breathtaking. This is the first noteworthy film where the magic looks and feels believable. Not only that but the specifics of the CGI Orcs made them even more eye-catching than the faithful recreations of Azeroth's fabled landscape.
