Regardless of how you feel about the game itself, World of Warcraft’s strength as a movie making tool is undeniable, having elevated the medium to heights never imagined in the days of The Marathon Vidmaster Challenge. Our own love for WoW machinima is already well documented. After nearly two years in production, the second episode of the Illegal Danish series is finally available, and while it is only twenty minutes long, it was certainly worth the wait.
Like the rest of Myndflame’s excellent library of WoW machinima, Illegal Danish 2: Escape from Orgrimmar is funny, slickly edited, and features a wealth of impressive special effects. It’s hard to say what’s more impressive: the movie’s hilarious dialogue or the gorgeous visuals. Any movie that leaves us too tongue tied to say anything snarky is worthwhile fare indeed.
