Give this film a miss, there are better ways and better films to invest your time in.
December 26, 2016
Members of the devoted Fanboy community might know the backstory to every tiny Warcraft reference but this really is a put-your-feet-up-and-enjoy fantasy adventure.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
December 4, 2016
The whole thing simply couldn't be any more lifeless, generic, and beige.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
September 26, 2016
With its stretched narrative, thinly-written characters, and sub-par CGI, Warcraft is an adaptation that's not likely to please long-standing fans of the games or those merely looking for an entertaining fantasy adventure.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
September 8, 2016
An in-one-eye-and-out-the-other spectacle of elaborate and painstaking digital effects in a fantasy medieval milieu: Call it 'Video Game of Thrones.'
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

If there's one reliable measure of an action movie's script quality, it's the ratio of meetings to run time -- the higher, the duller -- and Warcraft is chock full of tense discussions around maps.

Warcraft goes heavy on the world-building with great production design and a serious focus on action scenes, but ends too ambiguously to make any real impact.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
July 19, 2016
Although the film desperately tries to inject some emotion and gravitas to the proceedings, the CGI-heavy treatment and underdeveloped characters result in a curiously cold end result.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
July 14, 2016
The film as a whole is a real mess. Not that it matters. The Chinese market is going to ensure that we are treated to Warcraft stories for years to come.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
July 11, 2016
It's an overly serious, slavish-to-game-canon, Lord Of The Rings-lite fantasy that looks glossy but fails to engage emotionally.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
July 11, 2016
It's frustrating that a director as talented as Duncan Jones comes up short with his first turn at a big budget movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
July 11, 2016
Rushed, confusing and aimed only at fans of the game. Not even the special effects can save this one. A shame, really. [Full review in Spanish]

Great special effects can't save a boring film with a script that needed much more work. [Full review in Spanish]
July 10, 2016
It took me a long time to get my head around these characters and the way in which they weave their magic.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
July 5, 2016
Violent, boring, badly told video game-based fantasy.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
July 1, 2016
A bloated, boring 123-minute mess of globby computer effects and soulless battles... "Warcraft" makes you fear for the future of movies.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
July 1, 2016
A big letdown, especially with the previous work from this director. [Full review in Spanish]
July 1, 2016
Warcraft is not the disaster many critics have announced, but it definitely is a wasted opportunity. [Full review in Spanish]
July 1, 2016
The visuals are solid but the story meanders and the lackluster characters make this adaptation feel like a drag.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.0/4
June 30, 2016
On a narrative level, there's too much exposition, making the two hour running time apparent. On a performance level, the cast is mediocre. [Full review in Spanish]
