"Peaceful Warrior"

Monday's Media Review

The critics didn’t much care for this movie . . . and we loved it! And I suppose that pretty much sums it up.

It is admittedly a bit polarizing. Many will miss the messages altogether, some will find them trite and/or overly simplified; however, for most there will be at least a few memorable flashes. “There are no ordinary moments” comes to mind as a point well made.

If you are among the millions who enjoyed the book by the same name, you will find a lot to like in the movie. Even those who missed the book altogether will find Nick Nolte’s performance as Socrates sufficient reason to spend an evening with the Peaceful Warrior.

Keep in mind that Peaceful Warrior is not intended as a complete cinematic guide to enlightenment. Simply approach this movie with an open mind and enjoy.

We give this one 4 Stars!
Length: 121 Minutes

I loved the book and throughly enjoyed the movie. I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one
