THE WARRIOR’S WAY (Theatrical Release South Korea 2010)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 2.6|5.0 Starsìì

The Warrior’s Way starts with an Asian professional swordsman fighting and killing other professional swordsmen, finding a female baby in a chest, taking her to an American Western town/circus, and finding that the town/circus has an interesting and gory past. The movie’s flavor seems to play along the lines of the television series, Wild, Wild, West. This is not the best film for Dong-gun Jang, Kate Bosworth, Geoffrey Rush, Danny Houston, and Tony Cox. In final analysis, this film is: a few fight scenes that are worth watching with several unnecessary sexual references thrown in to enhance its deserved R-rating (blood and gore).

Storyline

Asian warrior Yang (Dong-gun Jang) disobeys a direct order to kill a female infant and flees with the infant to America.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Sngmoo Lee for directing efforts. Thank you to Executive Producers Eui Hong, Kathy Morgan, and Timothy White for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Lynne (Kate Bosworth), Ronald (Geoffrey Rush), Colonel (Danny Huston), Eight Ball (Tony Cox), Saddest Flute (Lung Ti), Baby April (Analin Rudd), Baptiste (Markus Hamilton), Craig (Rod Lousich), and Geyser (Matt Gillanders).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. Director Sngmoo Lee tries to pull a ‘best’ effort, but seems hampered by the poorly written script.
