A teenage gamer was magically sent back to ancient China and was hired to protect its princess from an invading clan.
A bit funny, but trying too hard only to give us a mindless entertainment. With the presence of a very good actor Dave Bautista and an action-packed trailer, it’s very unfortunate to get what seems to be a spoiled food out of a sought after delicacy.
The cast has a lot of potentials however they were all murdered by poor scripting, and exaggerated acting by some actors.
The plot is somehow interesting, to see some kind of a gamer turned to be the actual hero himself, but only turned out to be a cheesy fantasy action film that only exists if there’s a beautiful woman to be saved.
Another downside of the film were its special effects, where it seems to forget that it’s already 2000’s and we are in the era where visual effects are one of the most significant factors when it comes to fantasy films.
Anyway, despite these disadvantages, the movie delivered decent action sequences (martial arts and sword fights) and a cool bike chase scene.
In the end, The Warriors Gate is a nice family movie that provides child friendly entertainment but is indeed a forgettable one.
