Tbf, when I saw the trailer at the cinema it was pretty obvious I'd only be enjoying this film if I was smoking something.
That would certainly help. one feels. The missus enjoyed it too, but again, she has played WoW. Both of use wondered how accessible it would be to people that have not.
I don't do any games - not even Solitaire.
And you are correct it was TOTALLY unaccessible bordering on shit.
Don't get me wrong I enjoy a good action flick or fantasy or Sci Fi (have you seen Beyond yet?) But I must have some form of empathy towards it.
For eg my Empathy towards Preacher is that it is visually stunning, well acted and the location is great, and the script is interesting entertaining and intelligent. The empathy comes from WANTING to find out more (Apart from the kid with no face - I know that already and it is just not noce TV when he is on)
In Beyond Justin Lin does his FAMILY thing from the F&F franchise so that for once we CARE about the crew and get into the characters and jokes.
It's like Tomb Raider, the only empathy there was wanting to see Angie's (now sadly no more) Bewbs so it was wallpaper. Warcraft wasn't even that absorbing.
What's an Orc?
