TWO WORLDS. ONE HOME.
As the world of Draenor is dying, orc warriors travel through a gateway to the human world where they immediately clash with humans. Director Duncan Jones is an admirer of the original video game series and novels, and his treatment is bound to satisfy fans. However, those unfamiliar with the story are likely to view this visually awesome fantasy epic in 3D, with its orcs, battles and magic-fueled intrigues, as a much less exciting variation on Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones. OK for its type, but cast and characters are uninvolving.
