Warcraft (Blu-ray release 2016-9-27) flopped in all parts of the world except China, and gained bad reviews.  Quite a number of reviewers claim it’s incomprehensible.  As one who has never played the Warcraft games, I have no trouble understanding it at all.  Actually I think it has a fine story, with multiple characters that have sufficient depth – although some reviewers also view it as lacking focus.  My major problem with the movie is the pacing.  It should tell the background in less time, with a bit simplification, then go on with action quicker.  There should have been more action scenes and in more varieties.
