Format:Blu-ray
Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai gets a Hong Kong facelift in the 1989 film Seven Warriors. Like its inspiration, Seven Warriors is about seven rugged warriors who band together to protect and defend a helpless village from plundering bandits during the 1930's China's Warlord Era.
Adam Cheng stars as respected Chinese military commander who puts aside his binge drinking to put together a motley crew of warriors. The band of soldiers consists of various types: the handsome, capable second-in-command (Max Mok); a by-the-book soldier (Jacky Cheung); a kick-ass marksman/kung-fu artist (Lam Kwok-Bun); the jolly, money-grubbing old-timer (Wu Ma); the large, lovable lout (Shing Fui-On); and the pseudo-intellectual country boy (Tony Leung Chiu-Wai), whose innocence and righteousness are the audience's twin anchors. Their opponent: ex-comrade-in-arms Lo Lieh, who is obviously a bad guy because he has a massive mole with hair sticking out of it.

For sixty minutes, Seven Warriors features minor action, routine character development, and obligatory plot setup. Then, there's forty minutes of tense standoffs, heroic bloodshed, masculine righteousness, a mounting body count, and other assorted stuff which you might remember from Seven Samurai. Except this movie is in color, and it's not as good as Seven Samurai. The film also lacks cachet: these guys are not iconic figures like Japanese samurai are. Instead, they're just ex-soldiers with more cartoonish personalities. Overall, the acting is nothing to write home about, but the actors bring requisite charisma and likability to their roles. Tony Leung Chiu-Wai is convincingly innocent and lovably righteous, and Max Mok, Adam Cheng and even Lam Kwok-Bun are cooly charismatic.

4.0 out of 5 stars A real bargain for action fans. May 11, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I generally agree with the review posted by Asugar2 and would like to add that this blu-ray, at $9.96, is quite a bargain. For it's age this movie looks great, the subs are very good as well and it packs more action into it's last 20 minutes then THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN (Itself a remake of SEVEN SAMURAI) did in it's 2 plus hours. I had hoped for a little more Kung Fu, although there is still a goodly amount on tap, but in lieu of hand to foot action you get a slew of bullets and dynamite chewing up the screen. Also, this movie reminded me of another Hong Kong actioneer with Sammo (as star AND director) called EASTERN CONDORS which borrows liberally from MISSING IN ACTION and THE DEERHUNTER but still a great "Men on a mission"movie. Check it out if you get the chance.

4.0 out of 5 stars It Takes A Village June 3, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Great stories exploring the class of cultures generally mean the same thing to people of different nations, creeds, and faiths. There’s something uniquely identifiable that we – as a basic human species – can see and appreciate in these tales, and no passage of time will ever dilute the strength of the moral about what happens when people face ruthless oppression. Also – as history is ripe with examples – these narratives tend to pass down with each subsequent generation; while the use of the moral may get altered by our children and our grandchildren, the central conceit – that at some time you will have to rise up and throw off your own chains – remains as powerful then as it is today and, no doubt, will be centuries down the line.

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and/or characters. If you’re the type of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I’d encourage you to skip down to the last three paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you’re accepting of a few modest hints at ‘things to come,’ then read on …)

From the product packaging: “The Warlord Era: where desperate soldiers have become thieves and bandits, leaving towns – and lives – in ruins. The villagers of Guangxi rise up, hiring seven warriors to take up arms against the marauders and save their home.”

If you’ve seen Akira Kurosawa’s SEVEN SAMURAI, then you’re already familiar with this story. Also, if you’ve seen THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN, then you’re equally familiar with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars 7 samurais June 25, 2014
By gunnery
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Similar American version of the Magnificent Seven and the Japanese version of the 7 Samurais. As I say in all of my comments, I like movies with many actions, no romance.
