Kevin's Review of The Warrior's Way
The Warrior's Way(2010)
My original review of this film was harsher and I was thinking of giving this a 2 out of ten. However I thought it over and couldn't. This film was a bad film but there are some reasons I can't give it a lower score.
The plot to this film in the beginning was quite confusing. I don't mean confusing that you shrug it over but so confusing that the film was almost unbearable to watch the first hour. If it tried to explain it better then maybe it would of been more enjoyable.
Another major flaw with this film is the lack of character development. I couldn't care for any of the characters enough for me to cheer them on. The main character rarely spoke and was 2 dimensional. Lacking almost any personality and the problem is that the film needed to have it. There was too many characters. The woman actress's (I forgot her name)character wasn't explained enough so until the second half we see two character's falling in love but we can't give a rat's ass about it.
The film drags on a bit during the middle to the end. Although I will admit I was somewhat fascinated on what the outcome would be. The second half was somewhat fun but wasn't compelling and was more of a meh moment, also the climax wasn't that special.
So we have a film that is horribly cliched and predictable. Many of the characters are stereotypes and weren't given enough depth, and messy plot.
However although the film has major flaws it does some things right. The film has very beautifully shot cinematography. The settings were beautiful and mysterious and had a blend of surrealism in it. The film has without a doubt the best cinematography of the year. The film's soundtrack is great and is pleasing to hear. The special effects were visually stunning. It sad because the film could of been so much better if it tried to have a stronger plot that had memorable characters because I see the potential in what could of been one of the funnest films and possibly one of the best films of the year. Sadly this isn't so. Oh well until next time I guess.
