‘Warcraft’: What Did You Think?

Duncan JonesWarcraft is not an easy sell. I walked out of the film feeling more conflicted than I have in a long time after seeing a movie. On the one hand, it’s kind of a bloated mess that’s loaded down with character exposition and feels like far too much story crammed into a two-hour time frame. On the other hand, Jones’ ambition is incredibly admirable, and no other film in recent memory has tried this hard to create unabashed high fantasy. It’s a film I recommend, but it’s not one that I’m sure people will like (I even hesitate to say it’s a “good movie”; it’s certainly not a bad one).

But now we want to hear what you thought? Could you get on board with Jones’ high fantasy antics? How did the story work for you? If this is the start of a franchise, are you on board for Warcraft 2? Sound off in the comments section.


In case you haven’t seen it, here’s the trailer.

And here’s the official synopsis:

From Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures comes Warcraft, an epic adventure of world-colliding conflict based on Blizzard Entertainment’s global phenomenon.

 

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.

 

So begins a spectacular saga of power and sacrifice in which war has many faces, and everyone fights for something.

 

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.
