Synopsis:
There are some fleeting moments in Warcraft (2016) that demonstrate that it could have been not only the film to finally break the video game-to-film adaptation curse, but that it could have stood shoulder to shoulder with the best of fantasy movies. Sadly, these moments are lost in a script with poor dialog, a meaningless second act, and characters that have inconsistent motivations.
Intention:
The purpose of making this edit is to minimize the damage done primarily in the second act of the movie. This includes, but is not limited to, eliminating the Garona/Lothar romance, the Alodi subplot, and bad line reads from the beginning to the end. With any luck, this will satisfy fans as a worthy substitute for the original for which they don't feel like they have to apologize.

What a cut! Beezo did a great job making this movie flow so much better. I am thankful for the removal of the love story between Lothar and Garona.

I thought the original movie was just okay, but I do remember getting bored. Pacing is far better in this edit, and it cuts a lot of the poor humor. I enjoy this edit far more than the original but it still doesn't turn an average movie into a great one. Beezo did make it way better though. Definitely recommend.

Tighter, better focused, and with the silly elements gone. Great editing.

A leaner, vastly improved edit on a perfectly fine but lacking film. Much better-paced and definitely more coherent this time around, resulting in a much more satisfying experience. I enjoyed this immensely.

this edit was a vast improvement on the original movie,BEEZO has been able to trim out the awkwark scenes and un-neccesary humour making it now more of a action driven movie .the scenes explaining the lore and the magic have been shortened and are now sharp and to the point.now you dont have to be a video gamer to enjoy this movie now the whole family can.picture quality is superb.

a highly enjoyable watch,highly recommended.
