There's plenty of special effects in this one! It's a mighty mixture of CGI and... much more CGI, and some real people too. The tale is pure fantasy, like Lord of the Rings but with more war, telling of the battle between orcs and humans, of a grand gate, and guardian, and king and warrior, and children, and loved ones, and family, and loyalty and dishonor and all of that. It's a mighty tale, and it looks like... it may have a sequel! I am looking forward to it.
This is also a movie you'll supposedly get more from if you've played the games, where details are delved upon and backstory complete, but even if you haven't - it wasn't bad.
