I have never actually played W.O.W. and enjoyed this fully. If you have played the game there are places that actually exist and easter eggs from the game. With incredible CGI (to the point that you can see the pores on the orcs), a reasonable plot, and a pretty good cast including Travis Fimmel (Vikings, The Beast), Paula Patton (MI: Ghost Protocol, Baggage Claim), and Dominic Cooper (Preacher, Captain America: The First Avenger). It asks the question of are the orcs actually bad. If we were in that situation, what would we do. I would also like to mention the absolutely fantastic music provided by Ramin Djawadi (Pacific Rim, Game of Thrones) that set the theme of the movie.
When the Orcs have exhausted the resources on their home world, they attempt to attack and colonise the human world. When the other species in the human world (such as elves) refuse to help and the humans’ wizard becomes ill, the humans are outnumbered and outgunned.
In one of the scenes you can visibly see Paula Patton’s teeth almost come out of her mouth.
If the dwarves are helping by making weapons, why don’t they help in the all out war?
If, as said at the beginning, ‘Orcs and humans have been at war for many years’ (or something along those lines) why do the humans not know what an orc is?
if you know the explanation to these, please leave it in the comments.
Artistic Impression: 🌟🌟🌟⭐️
The Orcish dialect is an actual language created for the games.
Colin Farrell (The Lobster, True Detective) was approached for the role of King Llane and he even met with the director and read the script. Ultimately he was not cast and Dominic Cooper then took the role.
Paula Patton is not portraying her character Garona in motion capture despite playing Garona being half Orc.
This is Duncan Jones’ longest film at 2 hours and 3 minutes.
At USD 8.5 million, the movie holds the record for the largest weekday-midnight opening in China.
