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.

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.

Audience Reviews for A Warrior's Heart

"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."

★1/2 (out of four) A perfect example of how good intentions don't go very far. You need a decent script and capable actors to back it up. "A Warrior's Heart" lacks any sense of real human drama by using cardboard caricatures. Kellan Lutz lumbers his way through the part of Conor Sullivan an annoyingly cocky lacrosse player who is the star player on his California high school team. His military officer father moves the family to Virginia where Conor must show the new lacrosse team what he's got. His ego gets the better of him, however, when he clashes with the coach and the teammates, all while falling in love with the coach's daughter. But he must comes to terms with the predicatble tragedy all before the first west coast and east coast lacrosse championship game. Oh yeah, the game happens to be with the team from his old high school in California! It's all been done before, rarely this dismal. The production has all the subtlty of a Lifetime Channel Movie of the Week. [img]http://content9.flixster.com/rtmovie/84/31/84315_gal.jpg[/img]

It is a great movie, I really enjoyed it. Fun for all, sports for the guys and romance for the girls. Kellan and Ashley are both strong actors, Kellan has a way of making you feel what he is feeling. I highly recommend it, a must see!
