WoW Moviewatch: The Prologue: Rebirth

Work Warning: The creator of this video warns you that it isn't for the faint of heart. I guess that's true but it's also not for the faint of hearing.

Do you like very intense voices? Very intense voices. If you like growled dialogue and incredibly intense narrative that sounds like someone let Nietzsche loose with a Metallica album, then The Prologue: Rebirth was made for you.

Largely made up of in-game footage, The Prologue: Rebirth deserves a nod for its steadfast dedication to WoW realism. But this is a story of angst and rage. And lots of clenched-jaw dialogue. I appreciate the intent but the spit-laden dialogue ends up sound like a parody. I'm pretty sure that wasn't the point but I seriously had to stop and wonder if there's a joke here I'm not getting.

Slowly merging into the Death Knight echo, though? Fantastic technique.
