Lorenzo The Great
12 April 2010 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The Swordsman finds Lorenzo Lamas cast as a LAPD detective who is having some incredibly realistic dreams involving him in an ancient setting participating in a duel. When he gets assigned to a robbery/homicide where the sword of Alexander The Great is stolen those dreams take on an even greater clarity.

When he's not a cop, Lamas has fencing as a hobby and an illegal fencing club with duels to the death holds the key to both Lorenzo's dreams and the robbery.

What that is you'll have to watch the film for should you want to. Let's say that chief villain Michael Kitchen has a really long time grudge against Lamas.

I agree with the viewer that this film is a really bad ripoff of The Highlander. It's all kind of dumb, but Lorenzo does have his fans and you'll get many opportunities to see him in stages of undress. That's a good enough reason as any to see this film.
