Heavenly sword (2)

If there’s one video game that was begging to be a movie, it would probably be something other than Heavenly Sword. It was a decent game when it heralded the arrival of the Playstation 3 console way back in 2007, but it’s a dated mess of bad ideas and gameplay today.

Still, it had one hell of a story to tell. A tale that is now getting the full CGI treatment.

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 prophesy, 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 but 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.

If you haven’t played Heavenly Sword and still happen to be keen to experience the game for yourself, then this could be a quicker alternative. It doesn’t look bad, and the voice-casting is spot-on, but there’s just something missing here from what is shown. Heavenly Sword is out next year, and stars the voices of  Anna Torv as Nariko, Thomas Jane as Loki, and Alfred Molina as King Bohan.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
