Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: Factory-issue jingoism, yielding no surprises and frightfully few insights.

- Andy Webster, New York Times, Thursday, December 1, 2011

Rotten: The latest film to ride Joseph Campbell's The Power of Myth as if it were a nonconsensual pony, A Warrior's Heart tries to fashion a hero's journey out of a Seventeen spread.

- Eric Hynes, Village Voice, Tuesday, November 29, 2011

Rotten: A ho-hum drama whose many moving parts feel decidedly recycled.

- Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, Thursday, December 1, 2011

A little cheesy, but heart warming enough to be good, though. Decent cast. Decent story for a relaxing afternoon movie.

"The story is about a boy who is angry at the world and is aggressive on the field. Although he seems to have the talent for the game, his temper gets the best of him which makes him a liability on the field. So when his dad comes home from the war, he moves his family to his old home town and has his son attend the same school he did so he can play on the same lacrosse team as he did. But soon after arriving his father is killed in action. This makes Conor act out more and eventually leads him to being arrested for destroying school property. Then enters Sgt. Major Duke Wayne. He takes Conor up to some kind of camp to have him work through his issues and discover why there is no "I" "TEAM". A sad sappy movie with not enough heart. Not to mention some shitty acting. The plus side of seeing this movie is that I learned something new about the game lacrosse. I would go into great detail of what that was, but I forgot, lol. So maybe I didn't learn anything from seeing this afterall. Oh well. See it if wanna."
