I'm not skeptical simply for the sake of being skeptical, as you are, and with good reason I might add, there are no good videogame movies, Prince of Persia is as close as you can get, and even then it's a shallow muddle of poorly sewn together action.I'm skeptical because everything I've read, quoted directly below, says big dumb made up anti-lore action movie told from the perspective of only the Alliance, who will be entirely "good guys"(in reality they are morally nuanced) that stomp everyone.“It’s actually not like the great adventure. It’s not so much a quest movie. It’s more of a war movie. Well, okay, it’s absolutely a war movie. Cultures grinding up to a horrible moment where it just all spills over and gets out of control. Less of an adventure party quest-type situation. More of an armies building to an inevitable conclusion type situation.”So war, war, war, war, and I'm guessing the Alliance wins and is just for doing so, sigh.“While my heart lies with the Horde and Thrall’s an interesting character, from a movie making standpoint, a blockbuster movie its a little rough to try and tell it from the perspective of this green looking dude.” This one made me feel crestfallen, in total honesty, because it verifies everything I worried about, a big dumb action flick with some made up new Mary Sue leading the cast.I love Warcraft, but the lyrics of Blues Traveler's "Run-Around" sum up my emotions quite well"Like a nervous magician waiting in the wingsOf a bad play where the heroes are rightAnd nobody thinks or expects too much"
