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.
The greatest lacrosse movie of the 21st century...
Respectably crafted but thoroughly predictable.
With an emotional depth roughly equivalent to that of his lacrosse stick, the lunk-like Lutz mourns his Marine dad's death...
A ho-hum drama whose many moving parts feel decidedly recycled.
Factory-issue jingoism, yielding no surprises and frightfully few insights.
Cheesy lacrosse-as-metaphor film has some mature themes.
Perhaps best received as a workout for the Twilight junior varsity ...
Nixon and Reagan would have loved this movie.
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.
In movie terms, "Warrior's Heart" makes curling look like gladiatorial combat.
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.
"The story is about a boy who is angry at the world and is aggressive on the field. Although he seems to have the talent for the game, his temper gets the best of him which makes him a liability on the field. So when his dad comes home from the war, he moves his family to his old home town and has his son attend the same school he did so he can play on the same lacrosse team as he did. But soon after arriving his father is killed in action. This makes Conor act out more and eventually leads him to being arrested for destroying school property. Then enters Sgt. Major Duke Wayne. He takes Conor up to some kind of camp to have him work through his issues and discover why there is no "I" "TEAM".
A sad sappy movie with not enough heart. Not to mention some shitty acting. The plus side of seeing this movie is that I learned something new about the game lacrosse. I would go into great detail of what that was, but I forgot, lol. So maybe I didn't learn anything from seeing this afterall. Oh well. See it if wanna."
A little cheesy, but heart warming enough to be good, though. Decent cast. Decent story for a relaxing afternoon movie.
