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. 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.
