How does Gul'dan know of Azeroth? Did Gul'dan know that humans lived there? Again I realise Gul'dan is a bad guy but maybe they could of entered Azeroth and used diplomacy?
I know some of these points would negate the whole point of the movie but I'm just throwing them out there ya know. There were also other small plot devices that just didn't seem too well explained to me.
Fel magic seems to be the bane of the orcs, seeing as its destroying their homeworld, yet they also rely on it quite a lot.
Gul'dan appears to use it all the time, in fact his powers seem to revolve around fel magic. He uses it to harvest souls from captives the Draenei, another species on Draenor in order to power the portal through to Azeroth.
He also uses it to save Durotan's baby when it is stillborn. So it does appear that fel magic can be used for many things, good or bad depending how you look at it.
But again later on in the movie, Medivh the guardian of Tirisfal Ben Foster, a goodie , somehow becomes infected with fel magic and it consumes him, turning him into a powerful demon.
But why a demon? How does this magic work exactly? Are there any limitations? Does the magic have a natural leaning towards good or evil, or does it depend on who uses it?
Leaving fel magic aside, what about the rest, the visuals? Well I have to say I really enjoyed what I saw, much to my amazement.
The orcs do actually look really good in a comicbook kinda way. By that I mean its very lively, bold, stylised, highly detailed and outlandish.
Its all very different to the darker and more serious tone in Tolkien's work. The orcs in this movie have that highly stylised, highly detailed look about them which is both over the top and genuinely fun to look at.
I loved how each orc had his own unique armour, some adorned with trophies; weapons, haircuts, horns, facial features, skin colour, battle or clan standards etc Orc chieftain Blackhand Clancy Brown was a good example with his matching trophies of some creatures skull and spinal column upon each shoulder.
The CGI was really solid for the orcs I felt, they really had a lot of weight to them and they genuinely looked intimidating.
Sure the orcs are slower but the human knights were encased in heavy armour so they would be slow too. Surely the orcs would just sweep through the human ranks no sweat, hell even a horse was no match for a regular orc.
I must also give kudos for the design work on the knights of Stormwind, along with all the other characters magical or otherwise.
I really liked the costume designs, colours, patterns, armour, weapons etc It all looked really great, very colourful and again very comicbook-esque.
I think the only thing that did look completely off in the movie was the character of Garona Halforcen Paula Patton , half-orc half-draenei but spoke English?
This character was not CGI but the actress under heavy makeup, or so you would think. Unfortunately this makeup looked very hokey with the silly fangs sticking out of her mouth; it literally looked like they just sprayed her up with green body paint.
Mind you the all CGI dwarfs looked a tad iffy too, as did the elves with their long thin ears and glowing eyes. But still despite the amount of CGI in this movie I can't believe I'm reporting that most of it was actually pretty fine.
I did quite like the large wolves the orcs rode, again harking back to my Warhammer days here. I'm not gonna lie and say this movie was plain sailing, far from it.
Many of the characters will refer to places, events and characters that will mean nothing. Much of the time you will forget who's called what, or who or what they're talking about unless you're a fanboy of course.
There is a large cast here and their characters all have generally odd names. Some of the cast don't really work, some surprisingly do, but overall the choice to use mostly unknown or little known actors was a very good decision, voice work and live action.
Whether or not the hardcore fanbase was pleased with this I don't really know. Would a newbie to this world be engaged?
I think so yes. I firmly believe this fantasy does tick all the boxes most fans of the genre would expect to see, on a satisfactory level.
Durotan is a likeable Gul'dan is your typically evil pantomime-esque villain with a deep gravely voice also covered in lots of bone trophies and horns.
Garona does the divided loyalties bit with aplomb. You've also got a stoic King and Queen, and of course the main handsome hero and poor mans Aragorn Anduin Lothar, played by Travis Fimmel.
The movie isn't as wide in scope as the Tolkien universe, it does feel a bit confined to a few locations, mainly some interiors and battlegrounds.
You can see a lot in the visually pleasing backgrounds, but that's all you get, pretty backgrounds. You never really feel like this world is explored much.
The action is brutal and fun, but not bloody or gory which was a bit disappointing with all the mega sized orc weapons.
The heavy CGI is excellent in places but somewhat insubstantial in others there is of course a tonne of flashing, glowing magical effects and greenscreen.
And lastly the main problem is the array of human characters that are generally generic and lifeless, in short you don't really care about them.
Yet despite the numerous faults with this huge huge fantasy franchise undertaking, I liked what I saw. Yes as strange as it may seem, I did like and enjoy this movie Probably the combination of the visuals, various details and some lovely bits of stylistic flair from director Duncan Jones.
Wrap all that in a nice warm blanket of nostalgia from my old table top Warhammer gaming days; and I actually find myself liking this bloated CGI stuffed Hollywood blockbuster.
Phil H Super Reviewer. Dec 12, Not having played the game, I'm surprised I liked this movie so much. The acting in "Warcraft" is mediocre at best, but the CGI is out of this world.
There is a coherent story and lots of good action. It's just a lot of stupid fun. Christian C Super Reviewer. Nov 29, To avoid criticism, I will admit right off the bat that I have never played World of Warcraft.
I will simply be judging this as a film fan who has watching an adaptation and judging it based on the quality of the film alone.
That being said, although I could never get myself to applaud this picture, I will say that I found a lot to admire in Warcraft, even if it should have been used in a better film.
Of all the failed attempts at bringing a video game franchise to life, Warcraft displays itself as the one with the most effort. Overall, Warcraft is a pretty bad film, and that is coming from someone who even enjoys dumb action flicks like the adaptation of Need for Speed, but the most frustrating part is that it actually tries to be good.
Here is why Warcraft is a bland waste of potential. To put it simply, Warcraft is a 99 cent version of GameofThrones. Following two main species in a realm consisting of many, Orcs descent upon the planet Azeroth and fail to find a truce with the humans.
Seeing as they will eventually have to go into battle, deeper, more serious threats are on the rise. The Guardian, played by Ben Foster, is simultaneously an interesting, annoying, and laughable character that the plot heavily hinges on.
Playing out as more of a three episode miniseries for HBO, there are three or four core storylines that come into play here, all of which could have used their own film.
In my opinion, there are far too many characters and storylines trying to develop within this two hour run time, that is implodes on itself after the first act.
That being said, there is o much CGI that when the human actors are present, it clashes with the rest of the plain. Yes, this is just about the only way to make this look as realistic as possible, but it was off-putting in my opinion; However, I have to give credit where credit is due.
Warcraft does benefit from impressive visual effects, but they do lose a bit of flare when the action sequences are filmed just like any other generic war film.
The choreography is a bit been-there-done-that and the motion capture has been done many times. Although impressive to look at and presenting a new world to a fresh audience, it really doesn't bring anything new to the table in terms of storytelling.
Everything about Wacraft is tonally drab and every character is far too serious. For a film based on otherworldly creatures from a video game franchise, you'd think that there would be a few instances of comedy in order to liven up the audience, but it falls short in that regard as well.
Yes, there are a few solid character moments between the Orcs, but when the climax occurs, there are so many of them fighting that the stakes are thrown out the window.
Without giving anything away, the opening scene and the final frame of this film are really the only moments of hope throughout this entire film.
Both sides equally state their reasons for battle, making the stakes seem worthless, because you don't really know who to root for. Warcraft makes a valiant effort in bringing the visuals of the video game to life, and they are something that I will definitely remember this film for.
The biggest downfall about this picture is the fact that it falls into the same tropes as most generic war films do.
It uses its first two acts to discuss the world, introduce endless characters, set-up future storylines for a franchise, and then use its final act for mindless action that will be the only selling point for the film in the marketing.
Sadly, the marketing did not even pay off that well, and not very many fans flocked out to see this blockbuster. I did admire some of the elements sprinkled throughout this film, but in an already lacklustre year for big blockbusters, this is sadly among the worst.
Usually the ones who have no friends and want to be noticed Being an original World of Warcraft player I was very excited for the announcement of this movie but when the trailers hit I kind of lost hope.
Foolish I was for thinking that because from the moment the film started in the cinema I was lost for breath it was one of the greatest fantasy movies I have ever watched and a reminder of what makes Warcraft such a special game series for many.
Never mind what online critics say this was a fantastic movie for people old and new fans of the Warcraft universe. ZeitGhoul music is my sanctuary.
Pretty epic this is - everything is strangely working in this film - I am someone who grew up playing Hero Quest and reading fantasy novels, but Warcraft passed me buy - so no all nighters for me Id say this film has pitched the mood of fantasy and action and emotion and painful choices perfectly - and there has to be a equal by the same director Keep the charm if you are making another film producers - that means - the same director surely!
I loved this movie If you like the fantasy genre of movies, it is definitely worth a watch. Also, if you have a 3D television, the 3D effects are excellent.
This film turned out to be the I watched the 3D version of this film at the cinema and on Blu-ray. I don't play games, but do enjoy fantasy.
This film turned out to be the best film I had seen in months. The sound effects and 3D were both awesome, particularly the sound which shook my lounge with the help of my sub woofer.
There was plenty of magic, battle scenes and a good plot with some nice twists and surprises. Special effects were very good, particularly the massive bird that flew them around.
I liked the corruptive influence of the green magic which was done very well. I loved the final battle scene and the challenge of single combat between our hero and one of the chief orcs - outstanding.
I like Dominic Cooper, who was very good, but did not know any of the rest of the cast. They all handled their roles well.
All in all I thoroughly recommend this film to anyone who likes lots of action and a good plot - highly entertaining, I really hope they make the planned trilogy, and not just for China.

Despite Orgrim's objections, Durotan meets with Llane secretly to unite the Frostwolf Clan and the humans against Gul'dan, but the group is ambushed by Blackhand.
Medivh forms a magical barrier to protect the humans' retreat, but Lothar's son is separated from the group and killed by Blackhand.
Medivh is weakened, and Garona and Khadgar take him back to Karazhan to recover. After noticing Medivh's eyes shine green, Khadgar realizes that he has been corrupted by fel magic and that he is the one who helped Gul'dan.
At the orc camp, Blackhand purges the Frostwolf Clan. Orgrim helps Draka to escape, and she sends Go'el down a river in a basket, but is then found and killed.
Durotan challenges Gul'dan to Mak'gora, a duel to the death for leadership of the orcs. During the fight, Gul'dan violates the honorable combat rules by draining the life out of Durotan with his magic, killing him and earning the disapproval of the orcs watching, and he empowers Blackhand with the same magic.
Medivh, now in a half-demonic state, starts to open the portal to Draenor, and Gul'dan begins sacrificing the captured human villagers to allow the rest of the Horde to enter Azeroth.
Llane leads the human army in an assault on the orc camp, while Lothar and Khadgar fight Medivh and destroy the demon that had begun to manifest on the outside.
Medivh is mortally wounded, and uses the last of his strength to close the portal to Draenor and instead open a portal to Stormwind, allowing Llane to evacuate most of the freed prisoners.
Medivh dies and the portal closes, leaving Llane, Garona and a small number of human soldiers to fight the orcs.
Llane secretly orders Garona to kill him, bringing her honor among the orcs and putting her in a position of power to bring peace between the two races.
Garona reluctantly does so and is welcomed into the Horde by Gul'dan. Lothar arrives to retrieve King Llane's body, but is confronted by Blackhand, who challenges Lothar to Mak'gora, with Lothar defeating him.
Against Gul'dan's demands, the orcs, bound by tradition, allow Lothar to depart with Llane's body.
During Llane's funeral, the leaders of the other human nations, along with the high elves and dwarves , proclaim an alliance against the orcs and support Lothar as the leader of the Alliance.
Elsewhere, Orgrim takes one of Durotan's tusks to one day give Go'el, and the basket containing Go'el is found by a human. Terry Notary provides the voice and motion-capture for Grommash Hellscream, the orc chieftain of the Warsong Clan, though the part is listed in the credits as Peon.
Notary also served as stunt coordinator and movement coach for the film, working with cast members Kebbell, Kazinsky, Brown, Wu and Galvin on their portrayals of the orcs, and with Foster on his portrayals of magic.
Glenn Close makes an uncredited appearance as Alodi, an ancient mage locked in an artifact within Dalaran, described as "the Guardian before there was a Guardian".
Chris Metzen , who served as a co-producer and uncredited story writer for the film, and is the Senior Vice-President of Story and Franchise Development at Blizzard Entertainment and the voice of Thrall in the Warcraft franchise , makes an uncredited cameo appearance as a turbaned perfume vendor on the streets of Stormwind Kingdom.
The project was officially announced in May  with Blizzard initially wanting it to be set in the universe of the real-time strategy Warcraft: Orcs and Humans video game from This setting was later dropped because Blizzard decided that it would be too similar to The Lord of the Rings.
Uwe Boll made a bid to direct, but was turned away by Blizzard, who he claims to have said, "We will not sell the movie rights, not to you… especially not to you.
Because it's such a big online game success, maybe a bad movie would destroy that ongoing income, what the company has with it. With Blizzard's approval who had also been looking to change the story , Jones altered the story so that "It's Jones thus summed up the challenge by telling The New York Times , "My film started and ended with cancer.
Principal photography began on January 13, , and lasted for four months, finishing on May 23, It can be done well and it can be done shit.
The best CGI has you forgetting [that] it's CGI, and accepting the visual as whatever it is supposed to be—like props.
No one has an issue with props in film, do they? Warcraft: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is the soundtrack.
Warcraft was set to be released on December 18, , but following the announcement of the coinciding release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens , the release was pushed back to the following year.
Worldwide, it is the highest-grossing film of all time based on a video game breaking Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time ' s record.
Warcraft was released in a total of 65 countries from June to August , and international territories were expected to produce better results than in North America.
It received the widest Chinese release ever, occupying an unprecedented The website's critical consensus reads, " Warcraft has visual thrills to spare, but they — and director Duncan Jones' distinctive gifts — are wasted on a sluggish and derivative adaptation of a bestselling game with little evident cinematic value.
Geoff Berkshire of Variety criticized the film's attempts at adapting a source material with "inherent ridiculousness" with regard to how the original game series was not meant to have a very deep narrative: "[I]t's an unwaveringly earnest film that never owns up to exactly how campy every character, every conflict and every new realm truly is.
Dowd of The A. Conversely, Sheri Linden of The Hollywood Reporter gave a more favourable review, citing the performances and story as highlights.
With the film's storyline leaving Warcraft open to possible sequels, Jones has expressed interest in a sequel to the film, likely to be adapted from Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness , the second video game in the Warcraft franchise.
