Honest Trailers On Warcraft: The 'World's Most Expensive Unskippable Cutscene'

It was inevitable, really. The Warcraft movie was always going to be deconstructed by Honest Trailers and with plenty of material to gorge itself on and a keen understanding of the audience, it's one of the better instalments in the HT series.

Personally, I didn't think Warcraft was a terrible movie, but it wasn't a good one either. I completely agree with the Honest Trailers' assessment — the orcs were great, the humans less so and anyone unfamiliar with the game and its lore would definitely feel a little lost as the film doesn't really give you the chance to get your bearings.

But we don't watch HT videos for their in-depth criticism and philosophical musings. As expected, the commentary is joke-packed, including this corker:

"...begin your quest through the world's most expensive unskippable cutscene."

Yep, that's quite the burn.

If you're just interested in the Warcraft stuff, you can stop watching after the 3:53-minute mark — beyond this point it's all unrelated promos.
