Warcraft: The beginning, a movie review

A movie review: By Lee Sonogan

(2016) 2h3mins/Action,Adventure,Fantasy


This movie is about an Orc horde that invades the planet Azeroth using a magic portal, a few human heroes and dissenting Orcs must attempt to stop the true evil behind this war. Starring the lead role in vikings, Travis Fimmel stars in this movie too. This movie is visually good and each actor does a good job in it. You don’t have to of played the game to understand this story.

Duncan Jones said that the original script was very one-sided in terms of the two factions, the Horde and the Alliance. After signing on to direct, he made major edits to the story, as well as the script, so both factions could tell their side of the story. The film went through 20 months of post production. Thomas Tull the CEO of Legendary Pictures and producer of the film said that the things Duncan Jones and the special effects team are doing are truly on the cutting edge.

Life-size weapons and suits of armour were built for the orcs despite the orcs being played by actors via motion capture. This was mainly for photographic references and so that they could use them as props on the set.

Overall, this money is like the Lord of the rings, but different. I would even say that this first movie and as good as The fellowship of the ring. All the action scenes in it are as good as any fantasy/action movie. At USD 8.5 million, the movie holds the record for the largest weekday-midnight opening in China.  I recommend this movie to anyone who is feeling like a good fantasy, action movie. Plus I am very excited to see the next one when they make it.
