      Cristina B Beautiful and spare, a heartbreaking tale strongly mixed lurid violence. I thought the script was well done but there were a few loopholes. Acting and scenery is superb. The ending felt a bit too open. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/01/23 Full Review isla s This is quite a well made film, about an Indian soldier with a crisis of conscience. It features surprisingly little in the way of dialogue and action, although what there is, is quite impactful, if you know what I mean. There are some nice landscape shots of the locations and I thought Irrfan Khan gave a particularly good performance as the titular character. This is a thoughtful film, not perhaps one of the most memorable per se but a good example of this sort of film, I feel, though I was a bit frustrated that it ended quickly and I'm not entirely sure quite what to make of what happened...I suppose its one of those films where the viewer is left to decide for themselves, which may frustrate some people, like me. It's a good film in some respects but certainly not great. If it sounds particularly interesting then it's probably worth looking at, though, yes. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Liam D Breathtaking and epic this is a ruthless drama that won the BAFTA for best British film and should have been nominated for a Oscar for best foreign language film but the academy didn't because of some stupid thing who cares this a great movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/17/20 Full Review Audience Member (Quick review) The Warrior is a 2001 crime drama directed by Asif Kapadia. The film stars Irfan Khan as Lafcadia and Puru Chibber as Katiba. A very gripping and intense film that had me intrigued from start to finish. The cast was strong, the characters were engaging, the story was interesting, the cinematography was visually beautiful, and the ending was heartfelt. Overall I give it a 7/10 - very strong film, would recommend Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Beautiful cinematography, great acting and decent directing make for a well crafted story about warrior haunted by his past. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member A beautiful and affecting meditation on what it takes to bring about peace Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Tom Ambrose Empire Magazine Sumptuous and profound, this is a stunning debut. Rated: 4/5 Dec 30, 2006 Full Review Terry Lawson Detroit Free Press It is hardly the most original story, but Kapadia, the British-born son of Indian immigrants, infuses it so much with stately resonance and spiritual reverence, that it never seems remotely shopworn, much less laborious. Rated: 3/4 Aug 5, 2005 Full Review Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle Long before the end, it takes on the quality of a wise fable and reveals itself as an enriching experience. Rated: 3/4 Jul 29, 2005 Full Review Felix Vasquez Jr. Cinema Crazed A meaningful, and well paced tale of a killer seeking redemption in a world that's felt his touch of death. Apr 29, 2009 Full Review Cole Smithey ColeSmithey.com "The Warrior" is a timeless and lyrical movie set against the stunning beauty of the Himalayan Mountains. Rated: A- Apr 16, 2009 Full Review Lewis Beale Film Journal International Its deadly pacing and almost word-free screenplay make it seem like a very long slog indeed.
