On a technical level, Warcraft isn’t terrible but in today’s and age and the advancement in the visual effects realm, it’s should be a given especially with a big budget tentpole. Outside of the VFX, and as someone unfamiliar with the source material, I found the film to be dull and filled with thinly written characters.
The Finest Hours is not a great movie but perfectly adequate that tells a compelling story that is utterly amazing. The performances by Chris Pine and Casey Affleck aren’t anything awe-inspiring yet decent enough to carry their respective roles and storylines. While it could’ve been better, this is a movie at least worth a rental.
The Mechanic is just your typical Jason Statham action film, whether or not that’s a compliment is entirely up to you but he has a brand not unlike Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger from the ‘80s and ‘90s transformed for the 21st century. As for what the Blu-ray offers, the video and audio both deliver the goods but it falls far short in the special features department.
