Robbed of his birthright, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy - whether he likes it or not.

There has been a war between orcs and humans for as long as can be remembered. But there was once a time, when we did not even know who our enemy was. Or what that evil green magic, the fel, had done to us. But in the beginning, how could we have known? What choice did we have? Our world was dying. And I had to find my clan a new home.

I came to the movie as a Warcraft player (I played Warcraft III and World of Warcraft). I know some of the lore and this made me understand what's going on. But from my objective side as a moviegoers I find this movie will be hard to grasp by mainstream audience because the lack of character building and fast pace of the story with lack of background.
Pros: - The long awaited movie of the much beloved Warcraft finally came out - Battle scenes are pretty epic and hard - Feels like a superhero movie with medieval settings - CGI quality is great
Cons: - Needs more screen time for storytelling - Lack of character building and depth - People without Warcraft lore will find the story is too fast and lack of backstory
