The 13th Warrior Reviews

Page 1 of 5
January 1, 2000
With a budget said to be more than $100 million, it displays a lot of cash on the screen, but little thought.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
June 17, 2008
Michael Crichton's story is underdeveloped and narrow in range, resulting in a tale more curious for its odd confluence of elements than for their edifying deployment.

"The 13th Warrior" is a brazen attempt to brand Antonio Banderas as an A-lister with a C-grade script. Failure attends.

With the possible exception of the action sequences and the very occasionally imaginative set design, it's awful.
July 14, 2007
Mr. Crichton may have found the perfect venue for his particular brand of character underdevelopment.

The 13th Warrior is simply without thrills and excitement.

At its best, this achieves the beauty and grandeur of a Kurosawa epic -- at its worst, however, it feels like a Python remake of The Vikings.

This stinker barks. It has been fermenting for a couple of years as the creative minds behind it continued to cut, recut then cut again, trying to make steak out of ground beef.

The cheese flows fast and furious from the screen.

January 1, 2000
Stilted dialogue, ridiculous storyline and spurting arteries combine for a very ugly filmgoing experience.
| Original Score: 4/10

A sensação que fica, ao final da projeção, é a de que vimos um filme vazio - e sobre o personagem errado. E o que é pior: no qual nada acontece.
| Original Score: 3/5

Director John McTiernan did this long before The Hunt for Red October and he would be wise to leave it off his resume.
January 1, 2000
The 13th Warrior seems like a made-for-TV warrior movie without enough money to get really epic.

Loaded with potential, it's puzzlingly overblown and distant, as if its huge budget were an albatross around its neck.

The 13th Warrior indulges in enough grubby histrionics and costume-adventure clichés to give you fifth-grade flashbacks.

. Seeing "The 13th Warrior" is like wishing for light at the end of a long dark tunnel, when we both know nothing is really there.

The film feels as if it had a bad run through the editing room.
January 1, 2000
Michael Crichton is quite a character; his films could use a little.

January 1, 2000
The 13th Warrior reeks so badly of melodrama and poor acting that it carries a worst scent than a canine's least appetizing residue.
January 1, 2000
Stupefyingly horrendous.
