Warriors of Heaven and Earth (Tian di ying xiong) Reviews

December 1, 2004
The acting is uniformly compelling.
October 1, 2004

Warriors ransacks enough of the dust-swept battle genre (start with Sergio Leone, Akira Kurosawa, and John Ford) to have no rousing or opulent B-movie personality of its own.

For eyes that have overindulged in the stylized razzle-dazzle of Hero, the grit, dust, and occasional cheese of Warriors of Heaven and Earth come as a corrective slap.

It's well worth seeing just for the embellishments.

A handsome although dramatically muddled Noodle Western.
