QUICK TAKE:
Fantasy/Action: Humans must contend with humanoid beings invading their world, all while one of the latter questions his ruler's leadership.
PLOT:
In the world known as Draenor there exists a species known as orcs, muscular, green-skinned humanoids sporting large tusks from their lower jaws. Due to the magic used by their leader, Gul'dan (DANIEL WU), Draenor is dying, and thus he wants to invade and take over another planet known as Azeroth. Gul'dan uses magic known as the Fel -- which strips the souls from those his forces have captured -- to open a portal between the worlds and has sent small groups of orcs to capture more prisoners in order to keep the portal open long enough so that all orcs can make it through.

Participating in the latest incursion is Durotan (TOBY KEBBELL), the chieftain of the Frostwolf clan, his pregnant wife Draka (ANNA GALVIN ), and his friend Orgrim Doomhammer (ROBERT KAZINSKY). Anticipating the attack is a group of human soldiers led by Anduin Lothar (TRAVIS FIMMEL). That military ruler heard of raids on human villages by the orcs as well as news from a disgraced young mage named Khadgar (BEN SCHNETZER) that the orcs were using the Fel. Accordingly, they visit the land's sorcerer guardian, Medivh (BEN FOSTER), for more information, and then set out to deal with the intruders.

During an ambush by the orcs, Medivh's magic from afar kills most of the intruders, although Durotan manages to escape. Captured, however, is Garona (PAULA PATTON), a half-human, half-orc who was previously Gul'dan's slave. She agrees to help the humans, and arranges a meeting between the King of Stormwind, Llane Wrynn (DOMINIC COOPER), and Durotan who's realized that Gul'dan's use of the Fel is what's killing their world, and an alliance with the humans is necessary to defeat the orc leader.

From that point on, both sides race to stop Gul'dan and his right-hand orc, Blackhand (CLANCY BROWN), from fully opening the portal, all while they come to realize that someone on the Azeroth side is conspiring with him to enable the invasion.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're fans of the video game on which it's based, they might, while fans of "Lord of the Rings" types of movies might also show some interest.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For extended sequences of intense fantasy violence.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
