Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"If you're getting the impression that Dynamite Warrior is insanely plotted for deliberate hilarity, you're right."
‑ Jeff Shannon, Seattle Times
"Dynamite Warrior is a genre confection with more than a passing resemblance to Hong Kong martial arts movies of the 1980s."
‑ Rachel Saltz, New York Times
"If we watch movies to see things we've never seen before, then dagnabbit, Dynamite Warrior delivers in spades."
‑ David Cornelius, eFilmCritic.com
"It's crazed to be sure, but it's a lot more fun reading about these insanities than watching them unfurl in endless slo-mo flourishes."
‑ Aaron Hillis, Premiere Magazine
"Dynamite Warrior is to Thai action flicks what Will Smith's Wild Wild West is to summer blockbusters."
‑ Edward Douglas, ComingSoon.net
"You have to applaud the attempts to enliven the genre, but Dynamite Warrior doesn't have the visual flair or humor to make this a midnight movie worth losing sleep over."
‑ John Monaghan, Detroit Free Press
"... amid the slo-mo furniture smashing and cheese-wizardry is a movie in touch with its inner lunatic."
‑ John Anderson, Newsday
"This thoroughly enjoyable Thai supernatural western martial arts film is completely nuts."
‑ Andy Klein, Los Angeles CityBeat
"Puts the fun back into Kung Fu. And Zen some."
‑ Kam Williams, EURWeb
"Takes a bite out of Ong-Bak: The Thai Warrior and Kung Fu Hustle and spits out a superfluous mess of schlocky supernaturalism, uninspired East-meets-West adventure, insipid backstory, and random feats of dexterous human might."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
"Light years ahead of Ong-Bak. It features well-choreographed kung fu and high production values."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"Director Chalerm Wongpim's skull-buster makes up in wild-eyed insanity (and excessive, arbitrary slow motion) what it lacks in acting, pacing, and coherence."
‑ Jim Ridley, Village Voice
"Anytime there's a motion picture that includes a plot point where the hero must equip himself with a menstrual-blood-tipped turn-of-the-century rocket to vanquish magic, consider me in. All in."
‑ Brian Orndorf, eFilmCritic.com
"More silly than existentially anarchic, and its exotic quirkiness wears thin quickly."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"I know we've all thought to ourselves at some point that kung-fu movies could use a bunch of dynamite firecrackers"
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
