This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The Warlords isn't a bad movie. Is a great one? Does it stack up to Jet Li's other epics like Hero and Fearless? Sadly, no. The main downfall to this movie is overly political and confusing final act. People start dying, you wonder why and it is all over in a blur.

What this movie does well though, is the scenes of warfare. These superbly shot and fun to watch.

I cautiously recommend the Warlords.

Not in the over-used sense of the word, but in the true and honest meaning. It has everything you would look for in a movie of this genre, with awe inspiring fight scenes and Jet Li doing his thing as always, but it isn't just another The Last Samurai in china. There is much deeper and though provoking plot that never has you saying "knew that was coming". The score, while sometimes ripped straight from Zimmer's Samurai score, fits in perfectly. The only negative comment I could make was some choppy transitions from act to act, but as long as you are not watching this while multi-tasking, the left out details allow you to speculate, and think about where the plot is going and how you are reacting to it, not unlike a good novel.
