Warcraft

Action Adventure Fantasy


 

Through a magical portal, a race of Orcs invade the realm of Azeroth in search of a new home.

Video games are typically a truly immersive experience, but sadly "Warcraft" the movie is not quite the same. The beginning is slow... very slow, grinding through the necessary setup required for all the noobs in the audience. Once we arrive at a point where we can vaguely recall the names of the clan, things become a little more interesting, exploring the admirable traditions of the Orcs, and challenging viewers with various mythologies and plot twists. Visually satisfying, breathtaking close-ups combat the less impressive vistas that deliberately mimic the source material. An honourable campaign.
