The peaceful realm of Azeroth stands on the brink of war as its civilization faces a fearsome race of invaders: orc warriors fleeing their dying home to colonize another. As a portal opens to connect the two worlds, one army faces destruction and the other faces extinction. From opposing sides, two heroes are set on a collision course that will decide the fate of their family, their people, and their home.
Watching “Warcraft” is like watching a video game come to life. However, along with the action and the ability to showcase amazing creatures, the film has a downside, in which some scenes look too much like the CGI images they are. For example, a few of the various characters ride strange creatures that sure look nothing like horses. Durotan (Toby Kebbell), is an orc chieftain with large hands and a pregnant mate, Draka (Anna Galvin). Of course, with a title like “Warcraft,” war is expected to be a big part of the movie, and it certainly is. Despite some good moments, such as a son attempting to be a warrior who would make his father proud and the sacrifice of a powerful character, the constant violence of the battle scenes prevent us from awarding this movie our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal.
