Directed by: Duncan Jones
Starring: Travis Fimmel, Ben Foster, Toby Kebbell, Dominic Cooper, Paula Patton
The pitch: On the distant world of Draenor, a race of dentally challenged warriors known as Orcs have not practiced good environmental ways and their world is dying. So, as with any race of bloodthirsty warriors in some sort of a predicament, the Orcs decide to move to the lush world of Azeroth.
The formula: Start with the creatures of “Lord of the Rings.” Take on parts of “Dungeons & Dragons.” Finish with a touch of “Vikings.”
Go see it: If you spend sleepless nights playing the video game.
Don’t go see it: If you have any good taste in movies.
Another miss: “Warcraft” continues the tradition of failed attempts to turn a video game into a movie. This is one of the biggest misses so far.
