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

Flawed production but definitely worth a watch
15 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

It might not seem like it at first, but the documentary does have a structure and does present a good amount of useful information. I didn't really like the documentary much 10 minutes into it, but by 50 minutes into it, I was stuck to the TV.

This documentary was kind of unusual. It seems to have very high production value, as in, expensive. They interviewed a number of actors, celebrities and other important people. The music was nearly all big name bands. There was stock footage used from big name movies. The animations were very high quality. Someone knew how to do top notch animations.

But, everything was kind of haphazardly put together. There wasn't really a sense of 'chapters' or ... whatever. There was no sense of what direction the documentary was going to go in. The music was very annoying. It's odd to have Dandy Warhols blaring over the voice of some scholar that's talking about swords. The whole documentary is like a big long trailer. In fact, that is the best explanation you will get of this film. Go watch the trailer for this film... then imagine that the trailer is over an hour long... that's exactly what it's like.

Despite its flaws, it is definitely worth a watch. Look past the problems this documentary has and watch it for the reason you watch documentaries... to learn.
