Ok, first and foremost, I will begin this review by saying that I am not, and never have been a Warcraft player of any sort; meaning, I have not touched the online game, board game, card game or any Warcraft product since its inception. So, going into Duncan Jones’ third directorial feature film Warcraft, I was a complete outsider amongst an army of loyal and very aware Warcraft users. Unlike most built-in audiences, each and every person who was in attendance of the early screening, possessed none of the typical geeky, fan-boy characteristics I have come to expect from franchises such as Star Wars, Harry Potter and the Lord of the Rings film franchises. So, how did I feel finally being an outsider and what exactly did the audience I attended the screening looked like?
“It’s about what men say, it’s about what women think” yet, it has nothing new to say about the modern day man that we haven’t already seen nor does it give any new insight on the mentality of contemporary, independent women. Instead, About Last Night becomes a long and stretched out account, chronicling the relationships of two couples that goes well beyond the night, the morning, and a year into each others lives. Don’t be fooled, About Last Night is a confused and misguided Valentine’s Day centric romantic comedy with a few good laughs and some very absurd final act redemption.
