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>

Did You Know?


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 »


Ian Nottingham: Bloodlust is a powerful thing. The desire for revenge. The desire for control. Can you control that desire? Or is it better unleashed? Are you having a hard time controlling the Witchblade, Sara? Your little toy doesn't seem to work against me. Is it because you really don't want it to?

"The Witchblade has it's way of slipping from it's wielders grasp just when it's needed most"
30 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

That's It I'm finding the TV show. This is the first incarnation of Witchblade I had experienced besides references to it in The Darkness comic books... and I'm hooked The plot is about a cop Sarah Pezzini tracking down killer Tommy Gallo for murdering her father and sister, after chasing down someone working for him she acquires The Witchblade, a gauntlet that gives her powers. Well that's the movie without saying spoilers.

I have not read one comic book of Witchblade at all but now being as that I've seen this now I will next time I find one.

So that's pretty much it I think you'll be reading more when I see the show.

EDIT: I can't find it on the internet over a year later so I will continue but you won't see it for another few months
