I can neither love or hate Warcraft.

Warcraft is yet another movie where a niche fandom earns a $150M budget and a good director in the form of Duncan Jones. But yet none of the high tech special effects and fantasy spectacle can hide that this is indeed a video game movie. It's not as bad as say a film made by Uwe Boll or Paul W. S. Anderson at least. There are admirable aspects of the production, particularly the meticulous detail in designing each character, costume, and prop. It looks gorgeous. The orcs themselves are a sight to behold.
But the script is a mess. It cannot decide whether it is a serious epic or an offbeat adventure. It rushes from one CGI fueled setpiece to the next without pausing for character development or even proper character introduction. It feels too much like a sequel to a film that already exi...

Fan Service To Gamers, Boring for the Rest of Us

'Warcraft' is the latest video game adaptation to film. Haven't had one of these in a while that wasn't a 'Resident Evil' sequel. Well, there's a reason for that. 'Warcraft', the game, is an immersive ever-expanding world full of so much dense history and mythology. It's realm is ripe for the fantasy epic treatment on the big screen. The only major problem in adapting is the overwhelming amount of word-building that would be involved. That's the biggest downfall of the film. The writers have managed to condense all of the sprawling elements into a single narrative, which in itself is impressive. However, the end result is an exposition heavy sit with absolute zero investment for the characters. I couldn't tell you a thing about them besides their race and a vague outline of their...
