It's an odd, puzzling film.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

For a story that is supposed to be about gymnastics and Eastern philosophy, The Peaceful Warrior is as riddled with homo-eroticism as Robert Smigel's 'Ambiguously Gay Duo' cartoons on Saturday Night Live.

With all this inspiration going on, why is the movie so dismal?

Full of cheap fortune-cookie wisdom and noodly inspirational advice.

Parts of this are visually stunning, but for the most part, it's the standard new age pap.

The kind of metaphysical nonsense that gives New Age a bad name.

A movie about spiritual awakening that plays like a spliced-together string of New Age fortune cookie messages.

Maybe there are worthy films buried in collections of spiritual homilies, but Peaceful Warrior is not one of them.

Works overtime to inspire audiences, but relies way too much on pop-mysticism and half-baked artifice to make its point stick.

The message is good, even if the delivery is repetitive, ham-handed and...equal parts disturbing and amusing.

Warrior is a good-looking film that feels more like an allegory about the power of positive thinking than a drama.

claims to be 'inspired by true events'; the movie does not, however, specify the planet on which these events allegedly took place. ... a perfect companion piece to last year's dim-witted 'Stick It'...

A rousing drama about an egocentric and restless young gymnast's spiritual transformation.

Peaceful Warrior is an inspirational story of the making of a true athlete. It's a bit hokey but you get by that whenever [Nick] Nolte is on the screen.

...surprisingly inventive...

In a Hollywood of leading boy-men, Nolte's commanding performance is a throwback to a time when movie virility wasn't an anomaly.
