Sword for Truth

"Terrible"

Sword for Truth Review


Perhaps one of the worst examples of Japanese animation ever put to film, Sword for Truth offers little more than haphazard swordplay, fistfights, and lesbian sex, all drawn with such a careless and lazy hand it doesn't excite nor does it titillate. Maybe the only redeeming feature of this film is watching its DVD in English, with English subtitles. Apparently the dubbing crew and the subtitle crew were working with different teams from the original Japanese. Worth a chuckle, but the rest of the movie is worth a nap.
