There’s always a place for good acting, clever dialogue, and a sense of humor, even if the narrative teeters between incidental and irrelevant.

The disappointment of what this movie could have been dogs it as it navigates safe, predictable roads to a preordained conclusion.

The lack of dynamism and depth in the characters hamstrings this production.

As a commercial for the game, "Warcraft" works and maybe that’s the yardstick of success against which this film should be measured.

Tina Fey is the biggest asset but even she’s not sufficient to make it worth more than a marginal recommendation.

Without jettisoning the tropes and clichés of the disaster film genre ,"The Wave" provides a little more intelligence and drama.
