Warriors of the Rainbow: Seediq Bale Reviews

Don Groves

Bruising, brutal tale of rebellion in early 20th Century Taiwan suffers from overkill.

The Taiwanese epic doesn't shy away from anything even though the message is pretty hopeless. But all of the film's depth seems to have been stripped away.

The film includes some stunning visuals, including a few terrific jungle battle scenes.

Given China's ongoing interest in the island and its unknowable future, this historical backstory behind current events is welcome indeed.

At times, Warriors sacrifices dramatic nuance for scale, but even its most rousing passages are tempered by a sense of loss.

You can see why Woo, the noted Hong Kong action director, would want to produce it: It fits right in with his "heroic bloodshed" cinematic legacy.

An ambitious, blood-soaked retelling of an uprising by Taiwanese natives against Japanese occupiers.

Film Journal International

Taiwanese natives battle occupying Japanese forces in a doomed uprising. Exciting if exhausting account of a real-life incident.

At two and a half hours, Warriors Of The Rainbow has the shape of something weightier than the simplified good-vs.-evil movie it actually is.

Slant Magazine

There's something to be said about a two-and-a-half-hour war epic that manages to make each of its countless decapitation scenes feel earned, even called for, in the moment.

As the war drags on, "Warriors of the Rainbow" outstays its welcome. I've never seen more severed heads in a film and cared less.

At 2 1/2 hours, "Warriors" is a bruising, relentless experience, one more tiring than inspiring.

The film's alternating talky torpor and frantic mayhem makes Warriors feel like it's operating in either fast-forward or slow motion...
