The Warrior's Way - DVD Review


Starring Jang Dong Gun, Kate Bosworth, Geoffrey Rush, Danny Huston, Tony Cox and Ti Lung. Directed by Sngmoo Lee.

I don't know what I expected but it wasn't a low-budget mixture of Leone, Fellini, and Chow. It's a movie that breaks down viewers' resistance and says "Come with me on this wild ride." It's one of those worlds where expert shooters are deadly accurate from impossible distances, and if you draw your sword, gravity will temporarily forget you. It's a martial-arts Western hybrid with mustache-twirling villains, a sad clown, and the scrappy young woman out to avenge her pa. Step right up.
