Special effects-laden fantasy action film starring Dong-gun Jang, Kate Bosworth, Geoffrey Rush and Danny Huston. Skilled swordsman and assassin Yang (Jang) goes undercover in in the American badlands after failing in his last assignment. There he makes the acquaintance of a band of carnival workers, including feisty knife thrower Lynne (Bosworth), and town drunk Ron (Rush), both of whom harbour powerful secrets. When Lynne is threatened by a gang led by The Colonel (Danny Huston), Yang must blow his cover and face up to his past as he draws on his expert warrior skills to protect her.

By TMUK VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
"The Warrior" Raised as an assasin and wishing 1 day to be the number 1 swordsman kills the last of a rival clan but cannot bring himself to kill the last surving member, a baby girl. Failing in his duty he becomes number 1 on his own clans death list so decides to leave his life behind. Taking with him the clothes on his back and the infant child he sets sail to the wild west town of Lode to find an old friend. The town is populated by circus folks who are more than a little down on there luck and have chosen to "stay a while" in this shell of a town. Taking on his old friends deserted Laundry shop he settles down to a new life where he meets a pretty young lady with a dark past. One way or another the past always seems to catch you up and pretty soon renegade outlaws and ninja style assasins are gunning and slicing for blood...

The Warriors way is a 1hr and 40 minute East meets Western film. It is very comic book stylised enhanced by digistised green screen back drops and slow motion action sequences that in the latter parts of the film are pretty full on. The film takes a while to get up to speed filling in background and trying to build some tension with background on the Warrior the young lady (Kate Bosworth). Before eventually getting into a rip roaring action filled showdown.

The Blu-ray film quality is excellent though at times its stylised filming makes it look a little peculiar, but in truth I found it in keeping with the film, although I did feel during 1 scene in particular there was an over use of slow motion which didn't hit the mark for me. The sound quality is HD-DTS a sounded great through a cinema system though I couldn't find any other langauge versions or subtitles apart from the SDH subtitles.

3.0 out of 5 stars Charmingly bonkers 29 Feb 2012
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
A charmingly bonkers, highly stylised genre mash-up of Asian heroic swordplay movie, Western and circus flick blended together in New Zealand with a Korean star by the people who gave you Outlander, The Warrior's Way was an almost heroically suicidal way to lose $42m, but as long as you're not one of the investors or the many critics who gave it a kicking on it brief theatrical release, there's a lot to enjoy here. Jang Dong-gun is the impassive member of the Sad Flutes assassin clan who kills The Greatest Swordsman in the World (Ever) to become the new Greatest Swordsman in the World (Ever) only to blot his copybook by failing to kill the last child of a rival clan. Instead he runs away with the babe-in-arms to a no-horse ghost town in the Wild West where he sets up a laundry shop with a little prompting from Tony Cox's nutcracking circus dwarf and Kate Bosworth's frontiers gal. Naturally no sooner has he discovered the joys of making things clean and making things grow than Danny Huston's Phantom of the Opera-masked mad Colonel and his army of Hell Riders reappear to wreak havoc on the town once again. Will our hero come to their aid and unseal his sword, letting the voices of his victims reveal his identity to the vengeful clan? What do you think...?

If Cowboys and Aliens proved a hard sell to the public, Cowboys, Carnies and Ninjas proved an impossible one: even the poster art for this one was clueless and just threw in the towel. Even more than the premise, the film's tone is pretty off the wall - you'll need a sense of whimsy for this one to work for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Totally Weird Man, But I Liked it. 14 May 2011
By Bob Salter TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This really, really isn't the sort of film I should like. Not many other people did looking at the reviews on 'Rotten Tomatoes'. Thirty eight per cent is not good! But there is no accounting for taste, and I actually enjoyed this very unusual film. It is a bizarre mix of martial arts, western, surreal cinema and graphic novel in the DC comics vein. It is perhaps best compared to the work of Zack Snyder, with similar amounts of blood letting. But this is a quite bewitching form of blood letting that becomes a sort of hypnotically beautifully mutated cousin of the old Sam Peckinpah westerns. Nowhere near as good as those great films I will add! Snyder's "300" contained similar scenes that are visually stunning to look at. I recall the colourful Persian cavalry riding into action, and their troops being hurled back over a precipice. You may well wonder where on earth I am coming from if you hate all this stuff, and it is not easy to explain it myself.

The East meets West film has been tried before. Most who are old enough will remember the TV series "Kung Fu". There was also the interesting western "Red Sun" where Charles Bronson teamed up with Samurai warrior Toshiro Mifune. In this film Korean actor Jang Dong Gun, a good name for a western character, is the displaced warrior. A master swordsman who has singlehandedly eradicated an opposing clan, he makes the cardinal sin of sparing one small baby. He is now forced to flee to America from his own clan who are not best pleased with him. Forgiveness is not a top priority for this bunch of bloodthirsty ninjas. They too decide to do some sightseeing in America.

A strangely 'Sin City/Comic Book' type of film. It is certainly off the beaten track of a western. Scenes of people jumping to heights that are impossible, tends to make this a... Read more
