#MovieReview: "Warcraft"


So the most successful MMORPG has finally gotten it's own movie: Warcraft.

But it's technically not based on World of Warcraft, but on the RTS which spawned it all: Warcraft.

Now I only played Warcraft 2 for about two weeks (really addictive game), and never played WoW, but I knew those games included a rich back story and was willing to give any movie a chance.

Starring Ben Foster, Ben Schnetzer, Dominic Cooper (from Preacher!), Paula Patton, and Travis Fimmel (from Vikings!), can they spawn a movie franchise?




Yes they can!

For some reason this movie didn't make a lot of money (relatively) in the USA, but more than made up for that internationally, so we should see at least one sequel.

The story wasn't cookie-cutter fantasy, and seemed to have a lot of homages to the game.

WATCH IT, and marvel at how scary strong orcs are!!

QBF Rating: 3.5/5

PS: MMORPG - "Massively multiplayer online role-playing game"

PPS: RTS - "Real-time strategy"

The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
When love and hate are both absent everything becomes clear and undisguised.
Make the smallest distinction however and heaven and earth are set infinitely apart.
