Sorry to Spoil Your Warcraft: The Beginning Movie

Wazzup Pilipinas!

"I knew nothing about the computer game but this film version turned out much better than what I was expecting. Amidst all the brutal violent CGI battles between humans and the Orcs, this film extols virtues of nobility, honor, fair play and sacrificing for the common good." - Fred Hawson

Is it true that Warcraft: The Beginning is better than X-Men: Apocalypse, Captain America: Civil War and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice? Nah! Judging by the first reviews, the Warcraft movie is only something you'll enjoy (maybe) if you're a hardcore Warcraft fan already. Is it another great video game adaptation or another grind? We all know the fate of most video game movies. But would it be different this time?

Some were saying there's just too much CGI. It's a fantasy realm filled with mythical creatures, magical spells, and though it has a veneer of grandeur and some intriguing exotically named characters and locations, it became a lifeless watch. "Warcraft will definitely be one of those bookmarks in life. For most people, it's just going to be a movie."

Director Duncan Jones, a self-professed Warcraft fan, has clearly put a lot of love and care in to fleshing out a story, but it’s questionable whether it was ever really merited.

The Wrap calls it "...a fun-starved dud that’s not even unintentionally hilarious."

For those interested in the Warcraft Lore after watching Warcraft: The Beginning movie. Check out this YouTube Videos below featuring the original background stories behind World of Warcraft..

"The peaceful realm of Azeroth stands on the brink of war as its civilization faces a fearsome race of invaders: orc warriors fleeing their dying home to colonize another. As a portal opens to connect the two worlds, one army faces destruction and the other faces extinction. From opposing sides, two heroes are set on a collision course that will decide the fate of their family, their people, and their home."

Directed by Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) and written by Charles Leavitt and Jones, the film starring Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Ben Foster, Dominic Cooper, Toby Kebbell, Ben Schnetzer, Rob Kazinsky and Daniel Wu is a Legendary Pictures, Blizzard Entertainment and Atlas Entertainment production.

The producers are Charles Roven, Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni, Alex Gartner and Stuart Fenegan. Jillian Share, Brent O’Connor, Michael Morhaime and Paul Sams serve as executive producers. Rob Pardo, Chris Metzen, Nick Carpenter and Rebecca Steel Roven co-produce. Warcraft will be released by Universal Pictures.
PS: No, the movie was not truly "the beginning" of the Warcraft Universe - not even close.
