Movie Review – The Warriors Gate

The post Movie Review – The Warriors Gate appeared first on The Scribbling Geek.

The Warriors Gate attempts to be a Karate Kid & Forbidden Kingdom in-between. What it is, in the end, is two hours of unbearable lame humour.

Oh gosh. This is bad. Unbelievably bad.

Let’s see. It isn’t the story. I’ve played games or watched anime with flimsier stories. It isn’t the terrible dubbing or lacklustre kung-fu fights too. I’m not that much of a stick-in-the-mud about technical perfection. I don’t expect every movie to win an Oscar for technical excellence.

It’s the fact that The Warriors Gate is entirely dependent on outdated 80s racial stereotypes. Note that I said racial, for the movie does it with both Chinese and Western actors uniformly. Understandably, a movie with this sort of East and West crossover might have to rely on such stereotypes for humour. But for goodness’ sake, at least try to get the comedic timing right. Every joke in this movie either felt late, lame, or waaaaayyyyyyy too drawn out.

To quote the (Singlish spewing) youngster who sat behind me in the cinema. “Nabei. Still got people make this kind of movie meh?”

That The Warriors Gate is a Chinese-French production makes everything borders on tragedy too.
