TDLR: Movie feels like it was written by a bunch of 12 years olds for school project.

Story: 20 minutes into the movie and i still have zero clue what is this thing even about. Ok, we have some humans fighting against each other and there are not only humans but other races also like elves, orcs, goblins. The only thing I know after 20 minutes is that they fight about something. Don't know what yet because movie didn't bother to tell you what it's gonna be about.

3DCG is not overal not bad. But the camera movement ruined the experience. They should recognize that making 360 degree or zoom in zoom out movement continuously didn’t make the scene better at all. They make color and line art like 2D animation then more fixed camera is more suitable. Even a 3D animation movie doesn’t use camera movement like that.

I don’t watch original movie yet but I think the plot is quite simple, not so much hype, and the end is really lame. ...

The movie is quite short - as such certain character developments need to be a bit fast-forwarded, which - repeating myself once again, isn't really bad I ...
