StevenF Review of Enter the Warrior’s Gate

Enter the Warrior’s Gate is a French/Chinese production which was released in the US on May 5, 2017. The story is about a teen boy Jack Bronson (Uriah Shelton) who is a gamer. One night, a Chinese warrior from one of his games appears in Jack’s room and asks him to protect a princess (Ni Ni). When the princess is kidnapped by the bad guys, Jack is magically transported to ancient China to rescue her. He is helped by a wizard and the warrior (Mark Chao).

The acting and directing were good. There were plenty of action scenes and some funny lines. Since the film takes place in a fantasy world, it is not unbelievable that one, or in some scenes two, people would be able to combat hundreds of bad guys. Uriah Shelton, in real life, is a junior tae kwon do expert and his moves reflected this. I was not thrilled with the beginning of the film, but once I understood that it was a video game, I understood why it was put in.

The story line is a bit weak at times, but I am sure that it will appeal to younger audiences, especially boys. There is only one kissing scene and it is near the end of the movie. I give this 3 stars out of 5.

    Tender, Endearing, action adventure. Although this may be for rated PG—-13 I believe that adults can enjoy it as well. After all, nothing like this can be in your dreams, reality bites sometimes, and that is what this film is about. Not all of us can be martial art warriors in China (Qin) but we can do what needs to be done. I rate this 4.5 out of 5 stars
