The acting is uniformly compelling.

Unfortunately, the two main protagonists, Lieutenant Li and Lai Xi, are too much the strong, silent type to engage us as heroes, or even characters.

Remarkable for its stimulating, metaphor-rich setting.

Warriors ransacks enough of the dust-swept battle genre (start with Sergio Leone, Akira Kurosawa, and John Ford) to have no rousing or opulent B-movie personality of its own.

For eyes that have overindulged in the stylized razzle-dazzle of Hero, the grit, dust, and occasional cheese of Warriors of Heaven and Earth come as a corrective slap.

The best case for Warriors ... is its cinematic time travels and its peek into the natural wildness of a long-closed countryside.

He Ping brings to his tale characters who are more dimensional than the usual symbolic figures of traditional Chinese period epics.

It's well worth seeing just for the embellishments.

A fitfully rousing but too derivative mishmash of genre tropes.
