The Warrior’s Way (2010/Fox Blu-ray)


Picture: A-     Sound: A-     Extras: C+     Film: A



The world's greatest swordsman after years of training has finally reached the top, but after a falling out with his clan he flees to the Old American West to start over and find a new life.  For a while he lives peacefully, but when outlaws show up and terrorize the town can he keep his blade sheathed?  Soon the danger escalates even more when his own past come chasing after him, it's an all out 3-way battle royal between outlaws, assassins and the townspeople.  The warrior takes up the sword once more and becomes a new legend on The Warrior’s Way.
Quickly becoming the hero in our story, the swordsman finds himself in big trouble with his own clan when he refuses to kill a baby from an enemy clan.  He decides instead to save and runaway with the child.  Together they live and hide with a broken downtown circus group and learn what it means to live life peacefully, but his new found peaceful life is soon shatter when renegade outlaws show up and assassins from his clan start appearing, he teams up with the towns an ex-gun fighter and the towns people to fight and protect the town they live in.  Jang Dong Gun, Geoffrey Rush, Kate Bosworth and Danny Hudson star.
This was an amazing film, oriental martial arts meets western gunsmoke action, the cinematography was like film 300 in a cowboy western and then crossed with martial arts action Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and much more.  In this broken town, a master swordsman hides and runs away from his past swearing never to fight again, but then learns that sometimes you can't runaway from the past, you have to fight or someone else will cry.  The movie is a storm of bullets, blades, gunmen and ninjas, set in a beautiful western vista, it is eye-candy from beginning to end for everyone.  The 1080p 2.35 X 1 AVC @ 32 MBPS digital High Definition picture and DTS-HD 5.1 MA lossless soundmix are really impressive, as good as you could expect for a genre film like this and is better than any DVD version could be, while extras include Digital Copy for PC and PC portable devices, Deleted Scenes and Behind The Scenes Montage.
