4/10. The Warcraft Movie: "I feel thin, sort of stretched, like butter scraped over too much bread."

The film attempts to accomplish too much while succeeding at too little, resulting in an unfocused, loosely-cohesive story with uneven narrative pacing, sloppy exposition, too many subplots, and subpar character development. The film, in general, could have benefited heavily from establishing a narrower narrative focus in terms of the plot and characters. Although there are many moments of Warcraft fan service, there is little time or effort made in conveying Warcraft's unique charm or flavor, which results in the feeling of generic fantasy flare, particularly on the human side of things. Would the film have benefited from being longer? Maybe. But I'm not reviewing a potential product, but the unimpressive product that I saw in theaters, and it felt like a mess.
