I always was kind of curious how people who actually know the story felt about it. For me, I loved it. It was just enough story and a lot of neat fight scenes. I have no idea about any of the lore but the Orcs looked pretty cool and it kept my attention.
I've read probably 10+ of the books, including Rise of the Horde and The Last Guardian - which the movie was 'based' on.
It took the core stories from those books and kind of mashed them together to make them fit in 2 hours and make it action/exciting/movie style.
People sometimes forget to have fun and not take things to heart. It is a neat movie, with great CGI and is a nice link to our gaming entertainment and lore. The books are fantastic though, I just read through Tides of Darkness again, and I am part way through reading Beyond the Dark Portal. I am definitely
not a lore expert, but the books are just great fun - and add more feeling of depth to the game, especially Vanilla WoW, as so many books are before the events of WoW. Great casual/easy read - do it!
Edit: words. And it seems I have read more than I remembered. They are fun.
