Warcraft is based on the game series of the same name by Blizzard Entertainment. It is largely influenced by the original RTS game Warcraft: Orcs & Humans rather than the hugely popular MMORPG World of Warcraft, though it takes elements from future games. I have not played any of them. Not a single one. So let this be a statement from someone who has absolutely zero investment in this series and is judging this solely as a movie: why is this getting critically mauled like it is?
