It's hard to tell one growling, sabre-toothed orc apart from another.

Much trust was placed on Legendary Pictures and the talents courted for "Warcraft" to break the film-to-game curse, but this match has ended with a loss.

Warcraft can't help but be a major disappointment, the game all but over as far as this particular fantasy franchise is alas concerned.

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.

This is basically a two-hour battle between humans and orcs, one that owes The Lord of the Rings franchise and the television series Game of Thrones.

A lot of sentimental hogwash about fathers and sons heading off to war.

All sorts of people are calling themselves nerds nowadays, but [Warcraft] supplies an easy test. If you can sit through this bombastic epic fantasy -- and can give a coherent plot synopsis afterwards -- then you surely deserve the title.

Having sat through this baffling movie's grueling two hours, I can't in good conscience even recommend it to Warcraft devotees. There's nothing here for anyone --neither man nor orc.

Warcraft isn't decent. It isn't awful, either, though that would honestly be preferable.

Crowded and scattershot.

Large scale battles and magical pyrotechnics are nice supplements but the absence of well-formed characters and a meaningful narrative render such pretty things moot.

Warcraft is a language you don't speak, a code you can't crack, a party you weren't invited to.

Don't believe the bad buzz: Jones has embraced that "unfilmable" game, and made a ferocious and fun journey through the worlds of Warcraft.

I kinda liked it.

There are plenty of flaws - an overabundance of storylines chief among them, followed by the occasional slip into silly action and/or overdone effects - but what fun to discover some virtues to set against them.

This is a film that requires an instruction manual going in-or perhaps years of training alongside solemn mages-simply to possess the superhuman endurance needed to enjoy it.
June 10, 2016
The characters are one-dimensional, but this is fantasy fiction not domestic drama.
June 10, 2016
Sometimes video games are best left as video games.
June 9, 2016
The story strives for a complexity that gets undermined again and again by cliche-riddled dialogue, pacing problems and performances that sometimes feel like they came out of a high school adaptation of The Lord of the Rings.

Just because you can come up with names such as Azeroth, Durotan, Orgrim, and Grommash Hellscream doesn't mean you're J.R.R. Tolkien, people.
