There really isn’t a better way to describe the upcoming Old West-meets-Far East movie The Warrior’s Way.
The film was written and directed by first time director Sngmoo Lee and stars South Korean action star Dong-gun Jang as a warrior-assassin who is forced to hide in a small town in the American Badlands after refusing a mission from his master, who then dispatches a horde of ninjas to kill him for his disobedience.
Today we have five interesting clips from The Warrior’s Way (previously titled Laundry Warrior) that show just enough action to pique your interest while not giving away the whole movie.
In the first clip, you’ll see the questionable knife throwing “skills” of Lynne (Kate Bosworth), followed by the hero Yang (Dong-gun Jang) getting ambushed by a pack of ninjas at a pond.
The remaining three clips are various edits of the same scene with minor alterations but each is worth watching just to hear Ron (Geoffrey Rush) utter the phrase which is sure to be in everyone’s vernacular this holiday season, “Damn… Ninjas!”
Enjoy them below:
The Sad Flute
These clips have me excited to see The Warrior’s Way, if only for the unique visuals Lee has created using “wire-fu" and CGI effects. There also seems to be a hefty amount of green screen backgrounds used, but to me, that is what makes the film even more visually appealing.
Rogue Pictures is producing and distributing The Warrior’s Way and I’m sure they are hoping for better critical results than their last theatrical endeavor, Skyline. Besides Rush, Bosworth and Jang, The Warrior’s Way also stars Danny Huston (Clash of the Titans), Tony Cox (Bad Santa) and David Austin (Spartacus: Blood and Sand).
The Warrior’s Way brings its high-flying ninja action to screens December 3rd, 2010.
