Profound Would Be An Understatement!, 19 October 2006
Author: benjamin_lappin from England

Quintessentially brilliant. Broken Saints is a profoundly thought provoking work of art, a rarity in recent times, yet this more than compensates for the lack of intellectually challenging, mind moulding and deep philosophical moments in the medium world of film. Utterly encapsulating.

Merging styles from varying art forms, notably Japanese anime and fusing it with a free-flowing comic book/graphic novel style it is utterly unique. Not all may appreciate its subtle movements and intense patient build up, in fact some may find it devastatingly annoying, but then, these are the people that would be missing out. Yet it's format is the least of things that make this series so undeniably fascinating.

The plot and storyline drive this series, for in a ten hour plus epic, whereby there isn't an overly active presence on the screen, the narrative is paramount, and it certainly is. Building slowly over the first handful of episodes (disc 1 for those with the DVD set) we are introduced to our Saints, as slowly their plight is introduced to us. I think most people developed a natural affinity with Raimi, straight off the bat, yet as each characters story develops we ingratiate ourselves with them in ways that at first seemed implausible, and this is the brilliance of the series. It challenges us in ways we never thought possible. It tackles misconceptions, stereotypes and ignorant views, it liberates your mind in a manner of The Matrixs first installment to the nth degree, and I always enjoy and wait with anticipation to see what quotational gem appears at the beginning and end of each episode, really driving home its philosophical impact and connotations.

There's so much to go into with this series, but be patient with it. Once it gets going it truly is impossible to stop selecting "next episode", you must put your judgemental attitude to one side not only when it comes to content, but to style as well. For those that do, it's just what you've been waiting for. I would wish to say "I hope you enjoy it", but that would be detrimental to a series which is impossible not to get sucked into. Watch with the Lights Out, Your Jaw Locked And Prepare To Know The Truth.
