Movie Critics
Hollywood Reporter
"Beneath the richly textured layers of motion capture, animation and 3D modeling lie the basics: conflict, survival, family, loyalty."
Sheri Linden (24 May 2016, )
Los Angeles Times
"[With] immersive IMAX 3-D backdrops, striking ambiguities and irresistible moments of straight-faced lunacy. The line between hack work and labor of love may be perilously thin, but you can sense the difference in the way Jones earnestly, wholeheartedly embraces the magic that powers this realm..."
Justin Chang (9 Jun 2016, )
Total Film
3 stars out of 5 -- "Tasked with brokering a peace between event-sized thrills, gaming lore and high fantasy, Jones embraces Warcraft’s world with laudable commitment..."
Kevin Harley (24 May 2016, )

Customer Reviews

Blizzard Fan

Reviewed by on

If you are a fan of the Blizzard franchise and WoW, then this is an extremely decent buy.
Movie is not to bad, the visual effects are AMAZING.

The price you pay and what you get out of it, is really worth while, especially if also play some of the Blizzard titles.

Blizzard once again show their appreciation for customers and reward their loyalty.

A good representation of the lore in the games

Reviewed by on

This movie works as a good representation of the lore presented throughout the games. I doubt, however, that those who are not familiar with the Warcraft franchise will enjoy it to its fullest extent.
