Plot Outline:

The once-peaceful realm of Azeroth faces an unprecedented invasion. A portal has opened and orc warriors fleeing their dying civilization look to make Azeroth their new home - and they will not stop until they have wiped out the existing population. Two heroes on opposite sides of this war will face off - a battle that will decide the fate of both their races and their home. -- Chris Kavan

Looks spectacular but tries to cram way too much in too short of time and most of the characters don't make that much of an impact. A typical case of all show no substance, though maybe if I had been invested in the Warcraft mythos, I may have gotten more out of it.

“Warcraft.” F**k it. It is what it is. F**king orcs, man. Ben Foster. F**k it. At least you can’t blame me for wanting to watch this then any Uwe Boll or Paul W.S. Anderson movie. This is at least a better adaption of a video game movie.

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...

Einstiegspunkte

2004 startete das Online Rollenspiel Warcraft und immer noch sitzen bis zu fünf Millionen Spieler davor. Duncan Jones bekam nun nach seinen zwei ambitionierten Science Fiction Projekten das Projekt Warcraft anvertraut. Während der letzten drei Jahre inszenierte er den ersten filmischen Ausflug in die Welt Azeroth. Die Geschichte basiert auf dem ersten Teil der Warcraft Reihe "Orcs And Humans" (damals handelte es sich noch um ein Echtzeit-Strategiespiel). Das Werk wirkt nun betont bunt. Die Orks sind im Spiel beliebte Charaktere und verfügen über eine differenzierte Kultur, die von den Spielern noch weiter vertieft werden kann. Orks, in Warcraft sind sie nicht die finsteren Fieslinge. Duncan Jones legt grossen Wert darauf, dass in seinem Film nicht der forcierte Wechsel in den Ma...

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...
