Succeeds in cutting out a distinct visual flourish amid a bland cinematic landscape.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4.0
December 7, 2010
[The] action sequences are clear and snappy, with the ante forever being upped for the unbelievably explosive climax.

To damn his agreeable campfest with faint praise, The Warrior's Way is easily the best circus-themed, martial-arts-heavy action-comedy oater of the year.

My three-word synopsis is my three-word review...cowboys and ninjas.

"That was completely retarded, and I would absolutely watch it again." Indeed.

If you can't figure out why a clown shooting a ninja is forty kinds of awesome, it's not going to waste time explaining it to you.

December 3, 2010
Set in a fantastical ghost town with a resident circus troupe and filmed on studio sets, it looks like a Sergio Leone epic as staged by Fellini, or by Lars von Trier.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 3, 2010
The Warrior's Way is a visually inspired multi-genre amalgamation, a borderline-surreal folly that suggests a martial-arts action-adventure co-directed by Sergio Leone and Federico Fellini.
December 3, 2010
Lee revels in the poetry of carnage -- movie carnage -- and despite 360 splatter shots and bouquets of severed heads somehow makes it all seem more kiss-kiss, bang-bang than damaged, or damaging.

December 3, 2010
Aided by a wonderfully ersatz spaghetti western score, Lee's cranked-to-11 curio is a shameless, sharply written (secondary villain Danny Huston gets an exit line for the ages), thankfully unironic chunk of fun.

If Sergio Leone ever made an Asian-western video game, this would be it. And I say that with a certain sense of joy.

Weak acting, unfocused directing and an overall very phoney feeling make for a film that is seriously misguided.

"The Warrior's Way" is a horribly ill-conceived idea that tries to blend Eastern and Western cinema, but all it ends up doing is creating a disaster that's filled to the brim with enough clichés to make your head spin.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

As a bit of cheesy Asian cinema, it works, but it didn't quite translate into a western without looking a bit like a Jonah Hex sequel.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

It's stupid in a way you won't really hate, provided you're already in the mood for a terrible rehash of cliches from a hundred other martial arts movies and Westerns.

There is a tragic craft to how one manages to make a film about 'the greatest swordsman who has ever lived' as boring as The Warrior's Way.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
January 22, 2011
Simple video game-style action sequences with bad dialogue.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
December 26, 2010
A visually rich but lumbering, narratively confused genre hybrid, The Warrior's Way feels like a wildly missed opportunity for East-meets-West action mayhem.

'The Warrior's Way' is one hot mess of a movie. It has the best cinematography of the year, hands down. It has ninjas, clowns and cowboys doing battle.
