Conclusion: I really liked this film. A mix of samurai and western filmed 300 style. There were a few slow moments, but there were some visually impressive action scenes that far made up for them. Not too violent, sure there is blood, but no major gore/bad language or sex. All the cast did a great job without hamming it up too much. highly recommended.
Conclusion: the worlds greatest swordsman has to kill all enemys to survive, attachment is not an option for him. however will not killing his foe's child a mistake ? he leaves his country with the child ending up at a run down town in the wild west. he's put away his sword whilst trying to build a life for himself and the child, even finding friendship, however the town has it's own problem....a gang that will return again to ravage.
Conclusion: This strange blend of Western, Action and Martial Arts genres is a cinematic oddity, which works reasonably well. The film is visually brilliant with a high quality aesthetic to both the action and effects. With the only problems coming from the one-sidedness of The Warrior's sword fights, still there is plenty of fun to be had, even if cliches are often thrown out.
Conclusion: Don't be put off by the lame trailer - it does not show what a great gem of film this is. They should sack the marketing dept. This film is well worth watching...if you are a fan of samuari/martial arts film, this should be an 'instant' buy. The mix with the Wild West is a great idea and Kate Bosworth is fab. Action scenes are well done -even with the CGI touches..
Conclusion: Truly dreadful. You can actually see Geoffery Rush/Danny Houston counting their payout for appearing in this - also, very little in the way of martial arts, and certainly no idea's or set peices that you haven't seen before.
