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>

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 »

Great adaptation of the comic.
17 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The guy who posted the first comments must have been unaware that the Witchblade Pilot was in the can before the premier of the Matrix. He should have read the comics which were written YEARS before the Matrix before he made his ludicrous comments.

This series was an action packed foray through history and lore as we watch Sara learn to use the powers of the Witchblade in her police work.

Yancy Butler does a great job in portraying the reluctant detective that finds herself bound to the mystical Witchblade... a weapon that can be wielded only by a woman of the artifact's choosing. She can see the past, future and the dead. These abilities to see reality from beyond the scope of normal perception can aide her if she can clear her mind of confusion long enough for her to utilize them.
