Season 1 Review: It takes itself way too seriously, the dialogue is deadly flat, and the characters just aren’t interesting.

Season 1 Review: There's a reason the network returned to its action roots after attempting to pivot away from them a few years ago, and if Cinemax continues to produce shows like Warrior, a show that is, first and foremost, entertaining, then I'm really not going to complain too much.

Season 1 Review: Warrior has its charms and much like a Chinese “Peaky Blinders” or “Gangs of New York,” it’s best when it leans into mankind’s reaction to corruption and injustice.

Season 1 Review: This is the right time and place for Lee’s vision to come to thrilling life, even if he’s not around to star in it. Warrior is a blast.

Season 1 Review: Topmost, Warrior is a good time, satisfying anyone who appreciates intricate fight choreography that emphasizes the physicality of its actors. ... At the same time, the show grants the same level of agency and ferocious, dangerous nature to its women as it does the men.

Season 1 Review: While it isn’t above mandatory Cinemax elements like fights, macho banter, and visits to brothels, it also aspires to make statements about the immigrant experience. And damned if those statements don’t turn out to be more arresting than the genre elements, which are proficiently handled but far from unique.
