(at around 45 mins) When Anduin Lothar and other soldiers are spying on orcs from the forest, one soldier is leaning on a sword knocked in the ground. When standing up and pulling the sword from the ground, it shakes, making it clear that the sword is a prop made of softer material, rather than of strong metal. See more »
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.

First of all let me say that I never played Warcraft but I played other blizzard Games like Starcraft, Diablo and Overwatch. I enjoyed a lot this movie and want more, much more. I have to say that the movie is actually very good (not great, but very good). The CGI is awesome, they should as example to the next Hulk. The movie could be better? Yes, but honestly, this is probably the best adaptation of a video game. I had no problem to follow the story, the plot is simple (could be better). The names are very complicated to remember (lol). The orcs are the core of the movie, they are much more interesting them the humans in my opinion. I believe the director was so focused in have the CGI right that maybe he forgot the human actors. I don't understand why the "professional" critics were so harsh with this movie.
