An epic fantasy movie as it should be...
I must say I'm sorry if anything I'll write may be a spoiler to those that haven't yet seen the movie.
Being a WoW gamer/fan myself I was expecting this movie since Blizzard announced the making of it back in 2009, if I remember well. So being patient for that long, I had mixed feeling when I sat at the theater's sit... Too much for a gamer to expect, too much for a fan to wait!!! Will it be a come-to-life imagination? Will it be just a give-us-more-money blockbuster from Blizzard's side?
The movie begun... For those of us that have played a bit of WoW or even back in the ages Warcraft the strategy games, the music was stunning!!! Oh my, am I playing now at the comfort of my room or is it a movie? Just epic!
There are too many CGI I must say, but who cares? They are just perfect! I had a bad feeling about CGI before watching the movie, but by god they must be some of the best CGI I've ever saw in a movie!
I must say now that or us fans of Warcraft, the plot, the characters and of course the ending wasn't a mystery. We knew what we were about to see. We knew what to expect. But this, this is what made the movies plot a real challenge I suppose for the makers. Excellent direction, really smooth going of the movies plot. Yes, there were some changes from what we gamers knew, as the death of Durotan. But isn't a fight to the death better than an ambush? I say yes. Not that many things were changed from the main lore of warcraft for those still thinking "My god the twisted the storyline". Slight changes brought a better result at the end and didn't change the story in general. Don't forget that this is a theatrical version anyway.
For those that haven't any relation to Warcraft or WoW the movie is just a must-see epic fantasy movie. Yes there should have been like ten or twenty more minutes to get you guys around but there isn't something you are missing. How many of us had read J. R. R. Martin's Lord of the rings before we saw the movie? Too many I guess, but it didn't make us see a movie that we couldn't follow the plot. I'm saying that because too many fellow writers will say "We missed this or that" "I could follow the plot cause I'm not a WoW player" or more.
The actors. A great selection of persons. They really made us anxious some times, worried some other times. Excellent performances that would make even the most skeptic of us say it was a good movie. Some of the actors' performance such as Travis Fimmel, Sir Lothar, were to be expected as flawless for those of us who have seen him in Vikings the series. But the real revelation were the actors that were incarnating CGI characters. The details, the expression even the voice were outstanding!
Its surely is one of the best, if not the best, movies of 2016. A must see for everyone gamer or not, fan of Warcraft or not!
So as a summary: The music was epic, the direction was one of the best we have seen, the actors were doing more of a good job, the CGI were of the best quality, the plot was perfect. A must see!!!
I gave it only 8 out of ten stars, because a 9 out of ten should be the sequel and a 10 out of 10 the Lich king's storyline.
Come on Blizzard make us wait for the next movie to come (but not soooo long this time)!!!!
