From what I can tell, The Warrior’s Way is not based on a video game, but it sure looks like it: Operatic violence, lushly surreal panoramas, vivid Wild West characters who resemble children’s action figures. Oh yeah, it also features cowboys vs. ninjas. (The Indians, it appears, are wisely going to sit this rumble out.) Oddly enough, the appearance of Geoffrey Rush seemed more foreign to me than the ninja hordes.
What do you make of this clash of movie-making styles and cultures? Did Rush seem oddly placed to you, too?
