1.0 out of 5 stars Huge Fail Feb. 8 2012
By Core - Published on Amazon.com
This movie, its whole.. feeling or vibe, that it gives off, is this gritty, dirty.. grimy feeling. That's the atmosphere.

The fight scenes, are pretty cool. I mean, if you want to see wave upon wave of people get shot down, stabbed, arms cut off? Yeah this is the movie.

Also the guy you see on the front, not the main character. Some dude with sunglasses and a golden gun is the main character. .. Which we find absolutely nothing out about them.

The movie is missing good character development, and story development, that's what really killed it for me. The most crucial part.I don't lightly give out 1 star ratings, but this movie earned it in my view.

You read the plot synopsis, and then you watch the movie, and at first bit, its going that way. And then.. it just loses it. *sighs* I was fooled. I kept thinking it was going to turn around. And by the end of the movie, well it was too late.
2.0 out of 5 stars WTF? March 1 2012

Seriously I can't even understand this. There is such a thing as trying too hard to be artistic. What else can I say?
4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting concept. Oct. 26 2011
By F. Sod - Published on Amazon.com
An inventive new twist on the recently overused regular people turning into superhero idea. As with most non American movies the plot is not spelled out for you as if you were a stupid child, you are actually expected to think a bit. It is at it's heart an action movie however so if you don't want to think too hard about it, it's not a big deal with this movie. The effects are nice an nothing looks cheap. The Set's are well done and the camera work is good and even beautiful in some spots. We get to know a few of the characters pretty well but the film suffers a bit from lack of character development for the supporting players. The interesting concept and able execution of it make up for any shortcomings in the non action part of the movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gritty, spectacular Asian superhero/horror slugfest Aug. 6 2009
By DJ Joe Sixpack - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
"Demon Warriors"
(Magnolia/Magnet Films, 2009)
------------------------------------------
Note: mildly spoiler-ish review below
------------------------------------------

If, perhaps, you are a comicbook fan who thought that the TV series "Heroes" became deathly dull, slow, timid and repetitive, or that the "X-Men" films are a bit sluggish and top-heavy, or that in general movies about superheroes would have more action, better ideas and less exposition, then check this flick out.

Originally released in 2007 under the title "Opapatika," it's part of the recent wave of giddly, low-budget, high-concept action films coming out of Thailand, with a similar vibe to the earlier Honk Kong kung-fu/crime films of the 1990s. In this case, there's an interesting mix of concepts, blending super-powers with a weird variation on familiar themes of the undead: the opapatika are a unique breed of super-ghouls, humans who take their own lives (under certain circumstances which aren't made very clear) and are reborn as super-beings, each with their own unique power, and their own haunting past. Each opapatika faces a psychic backlash when they use their powers, including one seemingly central character who loses his senses -- sight, hearing, taste, etc. -- one by one as the action goes on. Many of the powers are familiar to comicbook readers: a speedster who kills his enemies faster than they can see, a berserker who loves to kill, a hitman who can instantly determine each opponent's weakest spots (and who has a great duel with an unkillable immortal foe), etc.

The logic of the plot and the arc of the script are often unclear (in part due to the translation, and also because that's just how these quickie Asian films are most of the time...) It takes a long time to sort out the loyalties and motivations of most of the characters, but it hardly matters, because this film is mainly devoted to ACTION, and the fights are pretty graphic and gruesome. And fun. Looking to English-language comics for comparisons, this film clearly comes out of the "realistic" superhero tradition set by books such as Rick Veitch's "Marvel Man," Frank Miller's "Dark Night," and, especially, Ed Brubaker's "Sleeper." These guys have gnarly powers, and when they use them, they don't [...] around: there's a lot of damage inflicted. This flick may be low-budget, but it's exciting in a way that most of the American super-hero films are not-- it actually shows a lot of action, and infuses that action with visceral, immediate emotion. The director also tries to include a meditative, artful side -- some of the cinematography is very pretty and although the "quiet" moments are silly and pretentious, they also work to balance the film. This is definitely worth checking out. (Joe Sixpack, Slipcue film reviews)
