Four Warriors (2015/Lionsgate DVD)

Picture: B- Sound: B- Extras: D Film: C-

Four Warriors (2015) is a low budget attempt at fantasy that feels derivative of every other Fantasy film ever made. With laughably bad dialogue and subpar acting, the film feels more like a History Channel special more than feature film. That aside, the production value isn't terrible with some pretty nice costumes and shots that were thought through.

Directed by Phil Hawkins, this attempt at fantasy is missing the edge it needs to be memorable. Maybe Phil should watch Game of Thrones and take some notes. Four battle-weary Crusaders take on a mission to track down the evil predator who has abducted all the men and children from a devastated village.

Presented in standard definition with an anamorphic widescreen aspect ratio of 2.35:1 and a lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 track, the film looks and sounds fine for the DVD format but could benefit to a high def upgrade. A digital copy is also included, but the only extra is a theatrical trailer.

All in all, this fantasy entry can be skipped. At this point, to stand out in this genre, you need a more original story or a more detailed world with more original characters that aren't afraid to dip into R-rated territory.
