Inconsistent Fun
2 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

The Sword And The Claw is a Turkish movie in which I really didn't want to see because of my antipathy for Islamism. But what the hell. Couldn't hurt to try. I didn't really get what was going on mainly because of its conception and how it relates to its historical aspects, if any at all but wow was this movie silly..... in a fun way. It is like a kung fu movie but with Turkish cultural values (I think). The movies story is basic non sensical revenge seeking garbage. The characterization was good with neat costumes and stuff. But the action is where the movie shines. There are some pretty clever action sequences along with some blood splashing mayhem and even some dismemberment and surprisingly the dismemberment didn't involve a woman, gay or Jew. Imagine my shock. But the action can get tedious at times and does get a bit far fetched and stupid but eh. Oh, and the women don't wear burkas in this. I'm amazed they are ever shown at all. Gasp.
