Storyline

NYPD Detective Sara Pezzini's main goal in life was to bring down Tommy Gallo, the hitman who killed her father, her best friend, and eventually her partner. While chasing down one of Gallo's thugs, she acquires the Witchblade, an enchanted armored glove once used by Joan of Arc that deflects bullets, extends into bladed weapons, produces visions, and neatly compacts itself into a bracelet. She uses it to help her take down Gallo with the aid of businessman Kenneth Irons and his enigmatic and lethal compatriot Ian Nottingham. Written by Jeff Cross <blackjac_1998@yahoo.com>

Trivia

The film ends with a comic book-style image of Sara. This is actually a picture of the comic book version of Witchblade, modified to reflect the costume of the TV version (which is considerably more conservative than the skimpy comic version). See more »

Disappointing? Sez Who?!?
28 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The last comic book I picked up was "Classics Illustrated", and seeing "Witchblade" got me into my nearest comic book store to see what I've been missing. Just like a true Repubican, the last reviewer painted me with a VERY WIDE brush...and I'm not impressed! Yancy Butler got a raw deal from TNT due to her rehab stint (see Robert Downey, Jr. for the obviously gender-based bias), and still kicked Jessica Alba's still-not-so-good-looking butt! (see -- if you can stomach it -- "Dark Angel" for proof)! I've just about worn out my TV-recorded VHS tapes, and I'm sure any DVD would have extras that would grab my attention as well as the series itself did!
