The premise for the movie is interesting - orcs versus inhabitants of Azeroth. Some want to save their home. Some are trying to find a new home to avoid extinction. That is motivation enough. Add to that the massive fan base of the video game. Add to that the massive budget. What could go wrong? Right? Wrong. Warcraft is a movie not bereft of stunning visuals. But, if only its director Duncan Jones, infused a little more life into a dull boring stretched-out series that had not much wit and not many memorable, cherishable dialogues. It is almost a disappointment considering Jones gave us the stunningly innovative and thrilling Source Code. But, this movie shows him almost like a man who has forgotten his ropes. Yes, orcs and men fighting and heroes being made and unmade with lovely layers, great textures and 3D is fun. But it is fun only if we, the audience can care or relate for the characters. What if we aren't really the video game fans? What if we never played the game? Was the movie only made for those who absolutely loved the video game? What about those who do not have a context to the story or the characters? The movie was made as if such people were absolutely unwelcome at the party. That is a bad decision for a $160 million movie!
