The Warrior

87 mins
7.6 / 10 (220)


In ancient India, a warrior commanded to massacre a village for their outstanding taxes has a change of heart upon witnessing the horrors of his actions. He abandons his sword for peace in the Himalayas. But when his vengeful warlord sends enforcers after him, the warrior must face violence again.

MUBI's take

Transposing the mythic tropes of the western to the plains of northern India, Asif Kapadia’s sweeping tale of bloody revenge may be just 87 minutes long, but it’s every bit the epic. Tipping its hat to the films of Akira Kurosawa and Sergio Leone, The Warrior is a stunning work of genre reinvention.
