  Decent watch but too short.

I felt that the acting and cinematography were excellent in this film but the story seemed kind of rushed. I can see why they would want to condense it into this running time but they should have gone the other way and made it a 3 plus hr epic.

  Very Poor

Not what I expected there were two many small parts and the story was a little difficult to follow probably, as explained in the extra features, they often only finished the script on the day of the shooot.

  A MASTERPIECE

ok, so it had great effects, battle scenes and an interesting story with a good twist.............but there wasnt enough depth to the characters as there were so many main ones. i love these type of films but for some reason it just didnt pull together for me. ide advise watching mongol instead, sorry

I agree with all the above, this film has depth, if your looking for a martial arts films like one armed boxer or drunken master plays tiddley winks! Then this not for you, the film is well acted, well Directed. I was surprised at Jet Li's preformance and also slightly moved at the end. The battle scenes are amazing, but the story as a whole distracts from them and leaves you with one major lesson never trust politicians

This war epic is something to behold - it's a brutal film about fraternity and love, an odd combo that works as an effective action/drama. It's hardly original, but manages to always hold your interest. It's never overly stylised, but carries a slick representation and it's clear this was made with a passion for the subject matter. Fans of epics, martial-arts and strong acting should check this out. It often falls into familiar territory, but if anything, it's only emulating the best of its genre and that's by no means a bad thing.

  ' BRILLIANT spectacle'

| | See all rbmusicman's reviews (896)

In years gone by films like this would probably been dubed, which if you've seen any of these you'll know how ridiculous these movies used to be, i thank our lucky stars that films are in general made with authentic dialog.
This film 'the warlords' is both colourfull and dynamic, with really good battle scenes and a really good story-line.
'Jet li' plays a 'warlord' who by battle victories strives to unite a nation, at the height of his success however his friendships come under pressure.
This is a great action movie that is easy to follow by way of stunning visuals, the sub-titles become secondary to your enjoyment factor..............may get the 'blu-ray' version at some point in the future...............worth both watching and buying.

  Phenomanal!!

Wow! Jet li always manage's to astound me. I really enjoy the chinease/asian movie's, it give's it a sense of class. A beutifully choreographed movie such as other's of this type. The story, scenery and actor's are amazing, i really enjoyed the battle scene's too. An all out outstandingly beautiful movie from start to finnish.
