Martin's sword in Martin the Warrior looks significantly different compared to its version in both Redwall and Mattimeo. In the book series, it is explained that Martin's sword-blade was shattered when he arrived in Mossflower Woods, leaving only the hilt. A new blade was eventually forged from meteoric iron and attached to the old hilt, creating the sword that would be used in Redwall and Mattimeo. See more »

I have three teenage sons who grew up loving the Redwall series. When we started watching this DVD we knew we were in trouble when in the opening credits the 'written by' was one person's name and that name wasn't Brian Jacques. The producers have taken the characters and places from Redwall and completely re-written the story. Butchered as badly as Ron Dahl butchered Ian Flemings's Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang? Well, almost. After a half hour of watching this Redwall from the parallel bizarro universe, my 15 year old pressed the stop button on the remote and that was that. It was too painful for us to endure. If you love the original story, get Brian Jacques's excellent audio book version and leave this video on the store shelf.
