Warcraft: The Beginning (Movie Review)

By: Matt Suzara

The Orcs found their world dying and the only way to save their kind is to invade Azeroth, a place where humans, dwarves and other creatures live in peace. As a destructive war waiting to happen, one Orc, Durotan (Toby Kebbell) tries to contact the humans and help the clans unite but their ambitious leader  Gul'dan (Daniel Wu) have some other plans in mind and forces everyone to follow his orders. From two opposing sides, two heroes set to march on and lead the way to save their home and their people.

Warcraft: The Beginning is sparked with glorious CG effects that are quite a treat on the first opening sequence. However, it's tiring and cartoonish in the long run making this film hard to enjoy in the latter parts. It is rich in story, but with a lot of undeveloped characters thrown in the mix, it is really hard to appreciate everything. It comes to a point where-in you wished you have a remote control inside the cinema to fast-forward everything and move-on to the good parts.

It is quite depressing that Director Duncan Jones couldn't capitalize on this project and make it exceptionally rewarding in like what he did to one of my personal favorite film "The Source Code." I admire his passion and dedication in this film, but it can't seem to hold up as became a big disappointment for this summer Blockbuster season.

Overall, Warcraft: The Beginning has a lot to offer on the table but can't seem to hold everything in place. It can't make your trip to the cinema enjoyable as everything seems to fall apart even if you really want to appreciate the effort that is put into it.
