WarCraft : The Beginning

Hey guys , finally another movie review .WarCraft –   a fantasy film directed by Duncan Jones. It is based on the video game series and novels set in the world of Azeroth.

so here’s what It’s all about ❤

 

The Orcs home/world  Draenor is being torn apart by an unknown force that’s known as Fel magic. A Powerful Orc named Gul’dan unifies all clans and forms the Horde (it’s kind of like a major political party or group) . They create a portal that leads them into the world of Azeroth.

So basically the Orcs use Fel magic and it literally drains the life of their captives the Draenei ( They are uncorrupted Eredar who are a species of supremely talented magic-wielders who arose on the planet Argus countless millennia ago). So once their life is drained they use this to keep the portal open – how tight is that tho 😦 .

After , Gul’dan takes his warriors and commands they capture prisoners so they can drain their lives and keep the portal open to let the rest of the Horde in ..

Now Durotan who is the chieftain of the Frostwolf Clan has doubts, however he and his friend Orgrim Doomhammer join the warriors. His pregnant mate ( his wife basically) goes into labour while going through the portal .. why do babies have to come like that I mean come on she’s travelling :’) ..

 

The baby is motionless when born so Gul’dan drains the life of a nearby deer and uses the Fel magic to revive the baby now called Go’el. The baby is super cute btw ❤

The Orc raid continueS .The military commander of the human forces Anduin Lothar (My Fav Travis Fimmel aka Ragnar from Vikings ) is in the Stormwind Kingdom. As he’s examining the bodies of the men that were killed he finds a trespassing mage named Khadgar (Ben Schnetzer) , who explains that he was investigating the dead bodies because they contained traces of Fel magic.

 

Khadgar persuades the king, Llane Wrynn (Dominic Cooper) to find and speak to Medivh, the Guardian of Tirisfal.

 

In the Karazhan library, a ghostly shadow leads Khadgar to a mysterious book, which he takes – well kind of nicks really

 

Anduin, Khadgar and Medivh join a scouting team following traces of Fel magic, but are ambushed by orcs. Medivh uses a spell to kill the Orcs, leaving the Horde’s warchief, Blackhand to flee along with Durotan and Orgrim.

Khadgar restrains a half-orc slave, Garona (Paula Patton – who looks immensely gorgeous even when green my days ) and the soldiers take her prisoner.

Garona and Anduin are kind of crushing on one another 😛

King Llane frees Garona in exchange for loyalty towards him and his kingdom and she leads the humans to spy on the orc camp, where they learn of Gul’dan’s plan to bring the Horde to Azeroth.

Meanwhile, Durotan realises that the Fel magic is responsible for the destruction of Draenor, and if they do not defeat Gul’dan , Azeroth will suffer the same fate. Despite Orgrim’s objections, Durotan invites Llane to a secret meeting so that the Frostwolf Clan and the humans can unite to defeat Gul’dan.

He’s a Babe!

While studying the book he took from Karazhan, Khadgar learns that Gul’dan could not have opened the portal on his own; he had help from someone on Azeroth. He is confronted by Medivh, who burns Khadgar’s research when Khadgar offers to help him with his work. Fishy Fishy

The Frostwolf Clan meets with the humans to negotiate an alliance, but the group is ambushed by Blackhand.

 

As the humans retreat, Medivh forms a magical barrier to protect them, but Anduin’s son Callan is separated from the rest of the group and killed by Blackhand.

This bit was tragic 😥

Medivh is severely weakened, and Garona and Khadgar take him back to Karazhan to recover. After noticing Medivh’s eyes shining green Khadgar realises that Medivh is infected with Fel magic.

 

Khadgar returns to his former home, Dalaran, to seek help from the Kirin Tor, the authority of human and high elven mages. The Kirin Tor facilitate a meeting with Alodi, revealed to be the shadow who led Khadgar to the book; she confirms that Medivh has indeed been corrupted by Fel magic and possessed by an unknown demon.

At the orc camp, Blackhand purges the Frostwolf Clan. Orgrim helps Draka to escape, and she sends Go’el down a river in a basket, but is then found and killed by another horrid Orc.

Durotan challenges Gul’dan to Mak’gora, a traditional orcish duel to the death for leadership of a clan .

During the fight, Gul’dan violates the honourable combat rules by draining the life out of Durotan with his magic killing him this disgusts the orcs watching and he empowers Blackhand with the same magic.

Medivh, now in a half-demonic state, starts to open the portal to Draenor and Gul’dan sacrifices the captured human villagers to allow the rest of the Horde to enter Azeroth.

Llane leads the human army in an assault on the orc camp, while Anduin and Khadgar fight Medivh and destroy the demon that had begun to manifest on the outside. Medivh is left mortally wounded, and uses the last of his strength to close the portal to Draenor and instead open a portal to Stormwind, allowing Llane to evacuate most of the freed prisoners. When Medivh eventually dies, the portal closes, leaving Llane, Garona and a small number of human soldiers to fight the orcs.

 

Llane secretly orders Garona to kill him which would bring her honour among the orcs and putting her in a position of power to bring peace between the two races. Garona reluctantly does so – I mean if that was me dam  would have stuck the knife under his armpit…  She’s then welcomed into the Horde by Gul’dan.  Anduin arrives to retrieve King Llane’s body and discovers Garona’s knife in the body, realising that it was she who had killed their king. Blackhand challenges Anduin to Mak’gora, and Anduin quickly disposes of him. Against Gul’dan’s demands the orcs, bound by tradition, allow Anduin to depart with Llane’s body. At Llane’s funeral in Stormwind, the leaders of the other human nations, along with the high elves and dwarves, proclaim an alliance against the orcs and rally behind Anduin as the leader of the Alliance forces. Elsewhere, Orgrim takes one of Durotan’s tusks to one day give to Go’el, and the basket containing Go’el is found by a human.

 

Oh my days I cannot wait for the next movie it was epic – Loved it and Travis Fimmel was wow ❤
