Storyline

The Medieval and Renaissance blade, a profound and beautiful object handcrafted by master artisans of old. An object of great complexity, yet one with a singular use in mind- it is designed to kill. The truth of the sword has been shrouded in antiquity, and the Renaissance martial arts that brought it to being are long forgotten. The ancient practitioners lent us all they knew through their manuscripts. As gunslingers of the Renaissance they were western heroes with swords, and they lived and died by them. Yet today their history remains cloaked under a shadow of legend. Written by Anonymous

Informative and entertaining
29 September 2011 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

"Reclaiming The Sword" isn't much to rave about as a documentary feature, it's not very inspired in terms of editing and presentation, the constant use of stock footage gets annoying pretty quickly, and the music is overbearing.

But as a document - as a piece of research and presentation of facts - it's quite fascinating. If the premise of the film interests you; if you're interested in ancient European history, if you have an interest in martial history, if you've ever been a fan of medieval historic films or even medieval fantasy; if you've ever been a D&D nerd - you'll find quite a lot to enjoy here, lots of interesting information, good and varied interviews, and lots of swordplay of every kind imaginable.
