Critique of The 13th Warrior MovieThe movie The 13th Warrior is a barbaric movie. The chosen one (Antonio Banderres) leads the men of his village to a nearby village that is in need of help. The village is being terrorized by what the people think are "monsters". Cannibals that eat on the dead.The 13th warrior is chosen because he comes forth and is willing to proudly serve his village. They (the men) soon come to find that the so-called "monsters" are not really monsters but men and they can be defeated. But in order to do this they must ...view middle of the document...

I felt the warriors could have been more into the killing of the men. Other than that the movie was quite interesting.The costume and makeup were great on the dead bodies, and especially on the "monsters". The face paint on them was very creative. And the fur that hid their faces added mystery to the movie. The makeup and costumes on the warriors could have been so much better. They went through a whole battle, but their shirt or pants weren't torn to shreds. Instead of looking like they all had been in a battle, it looked like they had just rolled around in dirt. I think the warriors could have looked more beaten up in a sense.The stage combat was entirely too short. The people barely broke a sweat fighting with each other. They would bang their weapons once or twice and then one of them fell. That was it. The combat could have been a little more louder, and dramatic. What I mean by dramatic is the actual violent swinging of the weapons. Grunts, and moans of guys being hit and things as such. Also more blood and slashing.I recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in barbaric type movies, anything involving history. Someone who loves to see a lot of blood and gore. Stabbings, beheadings, and slashings. And especially anyone who is a Antonio Banderres fan.
