Enjoyable, despite heavily summarized story based on an MMO
The look of the movie was pretty good. Agree with other reviews here, the protagonist's face while alright, had some very ugly animation moments, but nothing too bad.
As someone who's played the online game, I thought the adaptation was alright. Although naturally, taking the story that spans an MMO where story quests drag on at length with gameplay, and condensing it into a movie, definitely makes for a very summarized Narrative, with little of the flavor items other characters bring, such as detailed description of Gerrant and such. I know the character well, because I've played the game. Others might find his big climax moment entirely out of left field.
It was fun seeing certain ques from the game, such as character abilities and moves utilized, as well as the standard makeup of the basic classes, (although the game itself doesn't exactly stray from traditional RPG classes such as elven archer, sorceress and cleric) so all in all, for a game based off an MMO, not bad, it was pretty enjoyable, and it handles it's story well. I'm curious to see what the sequel can bring and how it can build upon characters like Lambert, who, assuming it takes place some time after this one, would be a more experienced swordsman.
