5.0 out of 5 stars excellent documentry series May 25, 2005
Format:DVD
Unfortunately a number of people have placed bad reviews for a completely unrelated movie on this listing. I gave it five stars to compensate for this, but honestly I would not have anything negative to say anyway (except perhaps that I wish the episodes where longer and that they made more of them). All the episodes are masterfully crafted and engrossing. The use of a singluar narrative following one character while overviewing their entire warrior culture was a great idea. It personolizes otherwise abstract historical occasions and gives you a feeling for what it would have really been like. A few episodes do stick out, such as "The Spartans" because it's simply such a great and inspiring story, and "The Ninja" (just because ninjas are so bloody cool). I hate to be a boring cliche, but this series is indeed both educational and entertaining. You won't be disappointed.

DO NOT pay attention to the reviews from Katphish and Justin Devereux. They are very confused. This is NOT a documentary on real ancient warriors. The listing here clearly lists the actors involved and has an R rating. Look at the box cover, the actors are right there!

This very, very poor attempt at a movie stars a very overweight Daniel Baldwin. All of the actors here are not very good. There is a retarded character played by a VERY normal looking female who does a terrible job trying to play a retarded person. The actors just don't seem to really care or put that much into it. The movie comes across as being filmed in about a week's time. Very low budget and very amateaur.

Ancient Warriors is about Special Forces Captain Aldo Paccione who reunites his former world team Delta Force to defeat a vengeful band of mercenaries who are developing deadly biochemical weapons. This "reuniting" is a complete joke as Daniel Baldwin goes around picking up former members like something straight from The Blues Brothers when Dan Akroyd and John Belushi get the "band back together". It's completely ridiculous. In fact, this movie gets more and more ridiculous every minute until it finally ends with the most trite, inane everyone getting together and laughing ending you've ever seen.

This has got to be the worst movie that I have ever seen. I kept thinking that there is no worse movie than this one. There is no way. And... there's not even any ancient warriors in this movie. There's one little scene at the end where some very poorly dressed people in warrior costumes are superimposed on the screen. So don't believe the dvd box cover. That is NOT what is in the actual movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars * PLEASE READ * February 14, 2005
Format:VHS Tape
[...]

Ancient Warriors was a documentary series that aired on TLC/Discovery a few years ago. It contained great information on warriors such as the janissaries, the assyrians, the roman legionaires, and more. This set appears to include the episodes for the following: The Huns, The Spartans, The Ninja, The Celts, The Sioux, The Sammurai, The Vikings, and The Zulu. That's 8 episodes in all. This isnt the whole series though as it noticabley is missing: The romans, The Assyrians, The monks of shoa lin, the goths, the janissaries, The Macedonians/Alexanders army, the knights templar, and several more that I cannot think of.

The series was very well shot and featured great information and dramatic naration. There was a lot of depth in a short time span I believe 30 min per episode. It really was fantastic for anyone interested in history, military history, or the people covered by the series. I LOVED it. There is a box set similar to this one available on VHS from the discovery channel store but it varies in the episodes contained. I own that one, and it contains: The huns, The Shao Lin Monks, The Sammurai, The Goths, The Vikings, The Janissaries, The romans, The Spartans and the Macedonians. So while they share some episodes they both seem to offer ones the other doesnt have. I wish they'd release the WHOLE series as a DVD set!!

In short this is a rare and hard to find series that is FANTASTIC for anyone arm chair historians of all sorts. Teachers should note that they work well especially well in a classroom environment because they will likely catch the interest of students and are short yet very informative and accurate.

2.0 out of 5 stars Awful, simply awful. January 18, 2004
Format:DVD
The DVD box makes you think this is a movie about Delta Force against ressurected ghost warriors. In reality its about a bunch of overweight, out of shape ex-commandos running around with machine guns killing the same half a dozen stunt men over and over. The 'Ancient Warriors' of the title appear in the last 30 seconds of the movie. All they do is fade in, look mean and fade out again. Don't even waste money renting this one.
