The latest film to ride Joseph Campbell's The Power of Myth as if it were a nonconsensual pony, A Warrior's Heart tries to fashion a hero's journey out of a Seventeen spread.
Perhaps best received as a workout for the Twilight junior varsity ...
| Original Score: 78/100
A Warrior's Heart is so inept at developing itself as a film that it hands in all of its devices to the soundtrack itself and becomes a music video.
| Original Score: 0/4
In movie terms, "Warrior's Heart" makes curling look like gladiatorial combat.
| Original Score: 1/5
With an emotional depth roughly equivalent to that of his lacrosse stick, the lunk-like Lutz mourns his Marine dad's death...
| Original Score: 1/4
Factory-issue jingoism, yielding no surprises and frightfully few insights.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
The greatest lacrosse movie of the 21st century...
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Everything that happens is certain to happen from the first minutes, and the only hope is that these things might happen quickly or in some new or interesting way. They don't.
A ho-hum drama whose many moving parts feel decidedly recycled.
Nixon and Reagan would have loved this movie.
Respectably crafted but thoroughly predictable.
