I'm just not a fan, and there is nothing in it for non-fans. At all. So, oh dear God did I hate this movie. One day, there will be a video game adaptation than unites lovers of the original genre and movie lovers. This is not that day.
The fact that director Duncan Jones has hammered any kind of story out of one of the most popular videogames of all time is impressive, but Warcraft goes one better and manages to be pretty damn entertaining.
It aims to reignite the same mythological sub-genre of fantasy movies that was popular in the eighties, but possesses a self-seriousness that ensures it will never be a cult classic like Conan or Krull.
There aren't as many grace notes here as there could be, but Warcraft rumbles along, keeping us trying to guess how various alliances will form or fall apart, and how a number of combat sequences will play out.
The film looks spectacular, the characters are marvellously cheesy and, instead of the subversive wink to the audience that we might expect from a title like this, Jones is never condescending to his demographic.
