      walter m In 1999, a platoon of Spanish soldiers is stationed in Kosovo, after the war is apparently over. Instead of patrolling the streets or doing something else military, they are left with refurbishing a church. While there, Private Vidal(Eloy Azorin) breaks the non-intervention rule by trying to save the life of a man he saw kidnapped but to no avail as he gets his butt kicked not only by the killers but also his fellow soldiers for trying to get them killed. For a change of pace, Lieutenant Alonso(Eduardo Noriega) feels it would be good for his men go to a nearby village to restore the electricity. So, of course, something goes wrong... "Warriors" is a gritty movie about the futility of war and how one single mistake can ruin everybody's day. The movie gets off to a weak start before gradually improving. However, the simple story is loaded down with details that are irrelevant to the main plot.(Sadly, we are only supposed to care about the NATO soldiers. Everybody else is extraneous.) And a confusing ending does not help. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member the charm of becoming a soldier...and even worst, go with NATO or UN undercover. The movie might have some reality mistakes on who was the "good" and the "bad" side, but still, reflects the mixture that these war was/is. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Rough but true, ugly but magnificent, innocent but guilty... surprisingly good film. The only mistake is the accent of the french...the rest is pure war madness. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member i believed and expected more... the film turns out almost forgetable Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Review will be written when/if re-watched (Probability: Zero). First viewing: 29.01.2003 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Film de guerre sympa, mais décisions pas très judicieuses tout le long du film qui le rendent finalement peu crédible.
