Storyline

Heavenly Sword is a dramatic tale of revenge that sees Nariko (Anna Torv), a fiery red-haired heroine, embark on a quest for vengeance against the invading King Bohan (Alfred Molina) and his army. Once considered the failure of a legendary prophecy, Nariko must wield a sword that was ultimately meant for another. This ancient Heavenly Sword, once belonging to a powerful deity, can never be wielded by a mortal without it slowly and inevitably killing them. For Nariko, it is a race against time to avenge her clan before her life is irreparably overtaken by the omnipotent Heavenly Sword. Written by Anonymous

Not worth watching!
5 March 2016 | by cieranmkellySee all my reviews

This movie was a waste of my time and I only watched just over 30 minutes of the film before I couldn't watch anymore. I'd never played the original game until 2016 and when I completed it I found out that there was a movie after looking up the game on IMDb funny enough. When I saw the cast of this movie I thought that it would be great (even though I only knew a few of the actors) but after the 30 minutes that I watched I would call it bait just to get you to watch it. The film has no energy what so ever, the characters (especially Nariko) sound like they're bored and tired and it doesn't fit with their body language. The animation was okay, I'll give them that, but I noticed in one scene that Nariko's top which originally covers the left side of her chest was on the right side of her chest and when it changed scenes, her top was back to normal. The animators basically reflected the scene and couldn't be bothered to fix the animation (A.K.A Laziness). This was only the first 30 minutes of this film and it disgusted me, I'm just really happy that it wasn't the original creators of the game that made this movie, I would have been upset if that was the case. I'm sure that if the original creators and all of the original cast of the game made this movie, it would be a thousand if not a million times better.
