Major disappointment
Let's see. The Witchblade is huge undulating tendrils in the comic. Here it's a wimpy little dagger thing that looks like it's made of plastic. Oooh it's so scary, NOT. And frankly, I don't think Yancy Butler is very pretty, nice figure though. She doesn't really look like Sara. She sort of tries to act like Sara. The guy who plays Ian Nottingham talks just like Ian Nottingham would, it's too bad he's this little guy with brown hair who looks nothing like the huge assassin with long black hair. That might be excusable, but where's the katana? His clothes are all wrong too. The plot goes nowhere fast and the action scenes have no tension whatsoever. This movie is like leftovers from a forgotten Steven Seagal flick. They had a small budget and man, does it show. As an action mystery show Witchblade is cliche and predictable (totally unlike the comic), as a comic book adaptation it's a joke. What makes Witchblade, the comic book, cool, is that weird things happen to seemingly normal people and you never know quite what to expect. Due to budgetary constraints, all that was eviscerated from this version and there isn't much left. In place of eerie paranormal investigations and mortal combat, we get a predictable who-dun-it. Well I think you get the point. It was better than Generation X, but lord, it wasn't good.
