Customer Reviews

Overall, an very good Ninja action movie with a good story line.
Bo Tep
Plot normally isn't something to watch a kungfu movie for, but this was just bad.
Stanley
The artistic style of the film makes it a beautiful film as well.

Much better than what you would expect from the poor Rotten Tomatoes reviews. For an action film this movie delivers. Highly stylized but without getting too 'Scott Pilgrim' and lots of action but without getting gratuitous like Hobo with a Shotgun. The story is a pretty basic revenge/rediscovery story but the familiarity makes it easy to absorb the films stylistic elements. The performances were decent and Kate Bosworth brought a lot of energy to her role. If you like Clint Eastwoood westerns and enjoy Akira Kurosawa films like The Seven Samurai but with some steam punk and 'Crouching Tiger' elements you'll enjoy this movie.

First of all, I am not sure why Geofrrey Rush is given top billing other than he is better known than most of the actors. The stars here are Dong-gun Jang and Kate Bosworth. If you have no imagination and can't follow a story line that is not on the straight and narrow, you won't like this movie. This is not just a story about the world's strongest fighter. It is a love story between a man and a child he rescues and the woman he rescues, and the town who all show him the love he has never known. It doesn't hurt that Dong-gun Jang is so absolutely beautiful as is Bosworth. I rarely give a film 5 stars. At my age, I have seen about every story line there is. This is a brilliant movie. And there is a touch of whimsy here, as well. The cinematography is outstanding.

This movie is a cross between wire foo and western, so it already had an interesting fusion of styles IMO. The movie itself is really quite visually stunning. The darkness and death is represented with greys and black for the most part, while the things signifying beauty and life were lush and colorful. In fact, this is what made the movie special for me. The set pieces were almost shocking in their detail and attention to how it interacts with the story. There is some definite eastern philosophy going on here. The acting was....okay. Nothing too terribly awesome, but it worked well within the fold of the story. The fighting was really cool i thought. However, i find myself going back to the sets and the amazing images when i think upon this flick. It was a truly beautiful movie depicting blood and gore. Quite the dichotomy. I think this would have benefited from an indie release rather than trying for a big market audience straight away like it did. It's a film that needed to build momentum. Anyway, i wont discuss the actual story here, but i think you should give it a viewing with an open mind and then think about how the movie made you feel afterwards. Some people wont appreciate it, but i think if you go in expecting the fighting to simply be a nuance of a larger story about the soul and the journey through life, you will enjoy it as much as i did.

Enjoy!

I really enjoyed this movie, as it had me feeling a whole range of emotions. The artistic style was amazing, striking a great balance between exaggerated, but not distracting. I loved watching the main character grow, from someone who kills for the sake of killing, to someone who kills to protect that which is most precious to him. The circus characters at first were annoying, but as things progressed, I started to really like their contributions, and was genuinely sad when things didn't go their way. A bit gratuitous with the violence, but much better than something like Kill Bill. All in all, I greatly enjoyed this movie.

there should be more movies like this! this movie had a great story, plot was good, acting was good, and the humor was well placed, not like other action movies where humor is just thrown in at last minute! the warrior's way was very well scripted and very well acted, it deserved every star I gave it! in closing I will say that this is one of those movies that you enjoy watching again and again!

The samurai movies (chambara) has been refered to sometimes as the Japanese westerns. For example, "The Seven Samurai" (originally "The Magnificient Seven") became the western "The Magnificent Seven" and "Yojimbo" became (uncredited) "A Fist full of Dollars". This film is one of the several mixes of the west and east. "The Warriors Way" is a rather interesting surreal fantasy combination of the eastern and western.

Throw away any preconceived notions on what an Asian or Western should be because this movie mixes it all up in a great way. Have fun watching and make up your own mind instead of depending on what all the reviews say. The ending is pretty badass too.

This movie was way better than I thought it would be. I liked the artistic cinematography. The circus performers, makeup and costumes had sort of a futuristic kind of flare. Now this isn't going to win an Academy Award for best script, but I found it very entertaining. If there was a sequel, I'd watch it.
