Audience Reviews for The Warrior

  • Jun 04, 2013
    After his family is killed by his former lord, a warrior seeks to find inner peace. Essentially an internal, spiritual journey, <i>The Warrior</i> is highlighted by a good, understated performance by Irfan Khan and some picturesque scenes of India's landscape. But the story is old, and though it doesn't submit to the temptation to become a simple revenge story, what arises in place of cliche is not much better because the film is unable to get us far enough into Lafcadia's psyche to become a compelling internal drama. Overall, while there is a lot to like about this film, I don't think it succeeds because its central conflict is too obscure.

    A charming pearl,nowadays,real adventures require a special pilgrimage.The Warrior Within.Khan portrays the spiritual conclusion of an ecumenical hermit.As boring as it sounds,I assure you it's one of the recent "unknown" great films.

    Using the rugged desert landscape of Rajasthan like a character in the film and capturing stunningly beautiful images, The Warrior is a very visual spectacle which tells the story in a very focused and confident way. Irfan Khan is outstanding in the lead and I would enjoy seeing him again in Slumdog Millionaire. With a title like this, you'd expect a grisly, gruesome epic. But no, this is a small, intimate drama about trying to change one's life while trying to reject the strong internal drive for vengeance. <a href="http://s273.photobucket.com/albums/jj203/goji9000/?action=view¤t=TheWarrior.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj203/goji9000/TheWarrior.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

    One beautiful, minimalist, sorrowful tale about the search of peace in a man's troubled soul.
