As if the reviews for “Warcraft” weren’t bad enough, now Screen Junkies is tearing the Duncan Jones’-direct movie apart in its latest Honest Trailer.
Calling it the film that changed the world’s expectations on video game movies “from crappy-looking, low-budget messes to gorgeous-looking high-budget messes,” the clip reassures fans that it takes baby steps to make a great film and that “we’ll get a good one someday.”
The trailer doesn’t hold back on pointing out its multiple flaws which include the confusing storyline, the orcs obsession with teeth, the human’s lack of conveying emotion and the disappointment of dragging Glenn Close into this mess.
The “overly ambitious fantasy film” was a box-office flop in the U.S. but became an overseas sensation, taking in $433 million worldwide, thanks to its dedicated fans – which also helped out Screen Junkies with naming the characters in the video since they had no idea who they were.
Check out the Honest Trailer for “Warcraft” below, dubbed “Dawn of the Planet of the Orcs” by the YouTube page.
