Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

An endearing performance by Uriah Shelton as the hero, a hint of romance, and countless fierce battle sequences will please young adventure fans and might also appeal to lovers of fairy tales. Working from a script co-written by action-master Luc Besson and directed with flair by Matthias Hoene, Enter the Warriors Gate has enough humor and character development to make a routine "save the princess" story special. The fish-out-of-water time-travel sequences work well. And while teen bullying isn't an original concept, impressive bicycle chases make that story element sing. The martial arts sequences are not of the ethereal, balletic genre but are hard-hitting and bloodletting and include an array of graphic killings, all well shot. On the down side, a few odd song choices distract from the story at hand, and not all the performances are stellar. This film is best for teens, especially those who like wizards, magic, mentors, and teens coming into their own, along with brutal action.
