Here’s a trailer for the Heavenly Sword movie


It makes me want to gouge my eyes out with little, tiny teaspoons. When we first heard news of this CG movie (which is heading straight to DVD and Blu-ray for reasons that will be made crystal clear after you watch the trailer) there was no indication as to what direction it’d be taking. We know that now: it’s the same story that the game tells with the same characters. Unfortunately, it has none of the game’s gravitas, voice actors and music.

Heavenly Sword the game told a rather mature story with some serious tones woven throughout the narrative. Judging by this trailer, all of that has been removed and replaced with a tone that is squarely aimed at boys in early high school. Let’s make the scantily clad lady chop up bad guys to the sound “hardcore” rock ‘n roll and snippy one-liners.

If you’re a fan of the game (and there aren’t many of us) then you might want to look away. If you’re looking for a reason as to why direct to DVD movies have such a stigma, then hit that jump and prepare to witness a textbook example.

This makes me so, so sad.

    “If you’re a fan of the game (and there aren’t many of us) ” You, dear sir, don’t know many people then. Everyone I recommended to play the game fell in love with it. Sure, it has some dated graphics and is a bit difficult at times, but it is still a must play game.

    As for the movie, the trailer isn’t as good as it could have been. It looks like they have used to old models and textures, and that is a bit of a downer. If they can improve it, and bring back most of the main story from the game, then this will be awesome For now, it is good.

      No offense, but I’ve never played the game so I can objectively state that this trailer looks like $#!@

        It looks like that because they have reused the old models from the game. The game was one of the first games that came out on the PS3, so it all will look a bit old. There is some hope to it if they will decide to upgrade all the models and textures.

        I have seen worse 3D movies appear like Assassin’s Creed Embers. Never watch that short film, it sucks…
