Consensus: Perfectly, thoroughly divisive, The Warrior's Way will either be delightful or unbearable, depending on your tolerance for surreal, shamelessly over the top collisions of eastern and western clichés.

While the movie seems designed to be a breakout for Jang, it's Lee whose work actually makes an impression. You guess he'll be back - hopefully, playing it straight next time.

The Warrior's Way never achieves awesomeness, mostly because it never fully embraces its elementary-school playground aesthetic.

Perhaps this was a video game or a straight action flick this would have been a better movie.

The film's details suggest potential for a lively, bizarre, action-comedy cult classic. It just never comes together the way it needs to.

To damn his agreeable campfest with faint praise, The Warrior's Way is easily the best circus-themed, martial-arts-heavy action-comedy oater of the year.

Weak acting, unfocused directing and an overall very phoney feeling make for a film that is seriously misguided.

The ingredients here congeal into a gooey mess that is not without amusing moments.

Set in a fantastical ghost town with a resident circus troupe and filmed on studio sets, it looks like a Sergio Leone epic as staged by Fellini, or by Lars von Trier.

"The Warrior's Way" is a horribly ill-conceived idea that tries to blend Eastern and Western cinema, but all it ends up doing is creating a disaster that's filled to the brim with enough clichés to make your head spin.

Well made, great visuals and action scenes but all in all an average movie, let down by it's less than great direction.

This was a pretty decent film....good special effects, and good action. A little bit Kung Fu Hustle-ish...just not quite so silly. I really enjoyed Geoffrey… More
