75
A deeply pleasurable, old-fashioned blood-'n'-guts adventure film.
70
My biggest complaint: Following two nasty bloodbaths and an invasion of the creatures' lair, the final showdown seems anti-climactic.
63
Has a remote feel. It sometimes impresses but never soars.
50
Warrior has the underwritten, overproduced bluster of "Conan the Barbarian."
50
Dramatically empty Norse warrior adventure.
50
About everything is big in The 13th Warrior except the writing, which is microscopic.
42
Terrible, unnamable enemies turn out to be uncompelling indeed.
38
In tackling 1000 A.D., (McTiernan)'s suddenly an unwieldy, clunky filmmaker.
25
A grand, eye-popping film, a beautifully photographed epic with the depth of a Bugs Bunny Cartoon.
