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>

Trivia

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 »

There are better films to be watched.
27 August 2000 | by Infiniti-5See all my reviews

Although the movie had premise, I believe it ultimately failed as a great film because of the limitations of a TV movie. Good points include the visuals that paint a vivid, believable setting; the original camera angles, and the flow of the plot. However, the acting left a bit to be desired, and the action is truly laughable, without flash or style. The script is littered with corny one-liners and poor dialogue that sounds like it was written by an elementary school student. When it seems like a mystery is about to be unraveled, you realize that you had already seen it coming a trailer away. In fact, that nearly sums up the entire movie. Nearly any 60 seconds of the movie could easily be turned into a trailer. And once all of the rapid camera cuts and cheesy action/plot/dialogue is done with, the ending simply disappoints. While starting out with promise, everything past the first forty-five minutes seem incredibly rushed, and fails to leave any good images behind. If you've seen the trailer, just keep watching it and you won't end up disliking the movie as much as I now do.
