The plot is a bit silly and some of the acting does get a bit wooden but overall the cast puts on a good show. Despite being a bit silly at times the plot stays just serious enough to keep the viewer's attenion in between the over the top action sequences.
The climax of the movie in particlar has to be one of the more entertaining action scenes I've seen in a long time.
If you are looking for a deep romantic film or a gripping drama you may want to skip "The Warrior's Way" But if you're looking for a fun light hearted action flick with over the top action and a very "graphic novel" style of art and special effects I would definately recommend checking out "The Warrior's Way".
After the movie establishes some characters and ties up some plot points, the town is attacked by a band of outlaws. Our warrior who has given up his life of killing, once again must kill. Oh yea, about this time his clan shows up as we end up in a three way fight.
We have seen these movies a dozen times before. This one boasts some colorful characters that could have been better developed. The CG background with the magnificent colors was great. The acting and script was about what we expect for ninja westerns. No sex or nudity. There is killing and blood, a few dismembered body parts, not much in the way of gore. A good flick for those who enjoyed Kill Bill.
Anyways... It was a great movie... lots of fun. But I will say that it is simply a sit down and enjoy movie with some popcorn and a snack.
I only have a few complaints though, two in fact.First, the effects in general were really good, but... what I had a problem with was some of the proportions... for instance. When the drunken man was up in the farris wheel sniping the bad guys... when you get an angle from the top looking down... it gives you the perspective that the farris wheel is really high (because many of the large tents and objects on the ground seem really small and far away from the top of the farris wheel) - this bugs me because in other scenes, you are given the perspective that the farris wheel is no more than a 200 feet tall. This really bugged me!!!
The second thing was, if you go back and watch the trailer for the movie, you will notice that there are a few short clips where the hero is in this room with dark wooden floors, it looks like he's slicing his sword through the flooring or something, and another clip in the same setting two ninjas pop out of the ground. These parts were not in the movie. It looked like some more cool fight scenes that should have been left in the movie but taken out for some reason... I don't like it when they put something in the commercial you really want to see, but don't actually put it in the theactrical release. I hope that someday there will be and uncut release (most unlikely... which is saddening) or that there are some deleted scenes and extras on the DVD that contain this missing action scene.
"The Warrior's Way" takes place partly in the world of Asian assassians & then switches to a stylized version of an old west town. The main character is an Asian assassian-turned good guy looking for a quiet life in this old west town he comes across. He meets several interesting people, including a collection of sideshow freaks, the town drunk, and of course, a spunky young woman that it the main character's love interest. Soon after the main character comes in to town, he sees that violence will follow him whereever he goes...
Yes, I admit that the plot of the movie is not very complex...(Killer swordmaster runs away from his clan to find a deeper/more meaningful life. Swordmaster must protect his new home from bad guys! Cue fight scenes!) However! Despite the plot being a bit thin,the characters in the movie are all very likeable, (Especially the character played by Geoffrey Rush!) and I think that the likeability of the characters makes up for the weaker storyline.
Bottom line=A movie that is pure action and entertainment!
