‘Peaceful Warrior’ manages to be both corny and hackneyed, and yet still remain fairly enjoyable. It focuses on the journey of one American gymnastics hopeful, Dan Millman, who finds an unlikely mentor in the guise of a gas station attendant he nicknames Socrates, played by Nick Nolte. It’s the familiar Karate Kid esque tale, but this time with a slightly supernatural taint to it, and with some nice bits of philosophy thrown in there too. A low budget, imperfect film, but one that has its heart in the right place, made a little more compelling by being based on a true story, although I believe very large liberties have been taken with the truth of actual events…
