Movie is based more on RTS Warcraft 1 than on MMORPG World of Warcraft but not really. From what I know about Warcraft lore and what you told us this movie is kinda going it’s own path as far as story goes.

Nah, Chris just misunderstood a few points. Orcs don’t occasionally pop between worlds, this is the one and only time they’re doing it to escape their dying home planet (Draenor). There are plot changes here and there, but the broad strokes remain the same. 🙂

Well this is not first time when he has misunderstood something from plot of movie and I doubt it will be last. So it’s not really surprising to me.

I’ve only played through the 2nd and 3rd games in their entirety, so I hope I’m not too lost on the story since I barely played the first.

I really remember my dad playing this and me wanting to play world of Warcraft. I still stand by that but however I’m totally skipping this and see it being a colossal bomb this weekend and 2016s 2nd major big budget bomb (after gods of Egypt of course).

Did I misunderstood you or you are going to skip Warcraft because it didn’t do successfully financially?
And it actually had a great start in Russia and the best opening weekend in China.

I’m going to see this next month. I think I’ll probably like it since I’ve never played Warcraft so I have nothing to compare it to.

I’ve not seen the movie, but it looked pretty bad from the trailers. The Orcs look relatively right, but they seem to have gone all Tolkein with the humans. That’s sort of missing the point, I think. WarCraft isn’t Tolkein, it’s a ripoff of Warhammer Fantasy that Blizzard attempted to give some kind of depth in the second game. What that means is big shoulder pads, angry characters and over-the-top violence. I didn’t see any big shoulder pads on the human side.

Warcraft 1 didn’t really have that much story,it was later implanted by books and sequels. But I really hate Warhammer fanboys,who always saying about Warcraft being ripoff,anything but first game. They are nothing alike and I am saying this as fan of both franchises. Besides after fucking Age of Sigmar they lost even more simmilarities.

Not even a few seconds in and you already got it wrong. Seriously, a few seconds of research would have told you this is not based on World of Warcraft at all (and I am tired of pretty much every ‘critic’ getting this wrong. In fact I haven’t seen one right yet), but rather, Warcraft: orcs vrs humans. This is like saying Harry Potter: and the philosopher stone is based on the popular book Harry Potter: and the prisoner of Azkaban. It is the same world, but completely different books (games) from different parts of the timeline.

The only other thing you said I feel forced to nitpick, since you have never played the game so wouldn’t know before hand why certain things are the way they are, (aka Mediev (the guardian) acting all crazy. There is a reason for this, but as a non player and representing the non player watchers, you wouldn’t know the lore so I can accept the criticism there and not raise up arms against it over why it is the way it is other than to say that, if they make more movies, it will be explained.), is that the orcs… Read more »

I’m stunned by the constant bad reviews {and yes this is a bad review} of this movie. It seems that even amongst critics like those on this site {Angry Joe, Chris Stuckman, The Battle Blog, Film Brain} this movie is not being given anything like the credit it deserves as easily the best Fantasy Movie not made by Peter Jackson for what 27 years now {since Willow in 1989!}. Video Game Movies have a bad rep but Fantasy Movies as a whole have an even worse rep! It seems that there’s some kind of kneejerk “it’s a fantasy movie so… Read more »
