What is relatively more surprising in my opinion, is how much I ended up enjoying Warcraft. And that's not to say its a perfect film by any means, but I do consider it to be a mostly successful video game adaptation.
For starters, I enjoyed the acting more than I expected to in this movie. Travis Fimmel's portrayal of Anduin Lothar proved to be one of the more likable performances of the film. Toby Kebbell's outing here as Durotan is equally as exciting to watch, and I even found myself enjoying Ben Foster's role as Medivh.
Going into this movie, I expected a great deal of CGI, but its actually done really well in Warcraft. Whether its seeing an orc snatch the soul out of a helpless human, the blade of a sword being sliced, or blood being spilled, the effects do not disappoint.
Its such a feat to behold visually, its a shame that the story sometimes has too much going on, and tries to have multiple plots going in a limited time frame. So I do hope that the blu ray release sees an extended cut or at the very least has some deleted scenes.
And normally, that would stop me from enjoying a movie; but frankly it didn't. Its not a perfect movie, but Warcraft is certainly an entertaining film; and Duncan Jones has in my opinion, succeeded here with his adaptation of the popular Blizzard Entertainment game.
While the human performers look like confused cosplayers and are mostly woefully miscast, the Orc characters are brought to life with some of the most vivid CGI and mo-cap to date. Everything until the humans step into frame is lusciously realized in a hyper stylized fashion which unfortunately does not mesh with live action all that well. There are great actors to be found scattered through an overall underwhelming cast (Dominic Cooper and Ruth Negga most notably, who have far better chemistry on Preacher) but the arch style of the set and costume design renders them looking goofy and lost. Lesser actors fair better, if only because they look more at home in the campy, unrealistic garb and setting, with silly expositional dialogue reminiscent of a syndicated Saturday afternoon show.
Having said all this, I repeat, I have watched this THREE TIMES and I now own it. To my shame. And delight.
I wasn't. The acting was beyond what I have come to expect from video game movies, and Duncan Jones has proven to be more than "just the son of a famous person" with Moon and this one to me. He has arrived.
I was awed by the great sets, both practical and digital, and the recreation of Azeroth on the big screen, but the story really propelled this thing to another level. By the climax, you're wishing it could go on for hours and hours, and we could visit Northrend, or perhaps Pandaria (NO!!! PLEASE! ), heh..
I don't know what of this is going to be Canon, and I'm not sure if Dalaran was a "floating" city by the events in this movie or not, but none of that kept me from enjoying a very very very good romp through Blizzard's wonderful world.
thank you filmmakers!
If you like Warcraft, it's worth a watch. If not, give it a pass.
