Movie Info

A Masai war chief dies trying to kill the lion Vitchua, which the tribe believes is the incarnation of a god that must be killed to end the seasonal drought. Eight untested teenage warriors are sent on a quest to hunt down Vitchua. Led by young Lomotoon (Parkasio Ole Muntet) and older warrior Papai (Paul Nteri Sekenan), the bickering youths are joined by Lomotoon's impoverished friend, Merono (Ngotiek Ole Mako). Along their quest, they endure difficult conditions and hostile tribes.

  • The beauty and excitement of Masai: The Rain Warriors comes partly from our sense that we're intimately entering a whole, rich new world whose people and customs were previously foreign to us.

    February 1, 2007 | Rating: 3/4
  • The earnest minimalism of Masai makes it an unusual moviegoing experience.

  • Set in the highlands of Kenya, a timeless place untouched by modernity, Masai: The Rain Warriors, is the debut fictional film of Pascal Plisson, a devoted nature documentarian.

  • A story of initiation, friendship, teamwork and sacrifice set on the vast ochre savannah of Kenya, Masai: The Rain Warriors builds slowly -- very slowly -- to a powerful and touching finale.

    October 19, 2006
  • Good-hearted but dull and a slave to its director's outsider-looking-in bias.

  • I quite enjoyed this "Lord of the Rings" style Masai adventure tale. It's in spoken Masai, subtitled in English. Authentic and warm.

  • A mythic quest ought to be more than pretty. It ought to stir ancient memories.

Audience Reviews for Masai: The Rain Warriors

  • Apr 06, 2008
    Cheesy pseudo-documentary about the Masai. It's a fictional story operating under the pretense of being informative, and neither seem to work. Engaging only on the most basic levels. I'm a total nerd for reviewing things I saw in a non-film class, but so be it.
