In 2000, TNT produced a TV movie as a pilot for a Witchblade TV series. They got rid of the ridiculous costume from the comics, but sadly, they also got rid of anything else interesting, resulting in a bog-standard genre movie filmed on the cheap in Canada. The great superhero movie rewatch slogs through Witchblade.
[Director] Ralph Hemecker evinces no sense of pacing, which we get at the very start where we get a simply endless sequence of Pezzini riding her motorcycle through the streets of Toronto, interspersed with second-unit shots of New York City to attempt and fail to make us think we’re there, as well as simply endless shots of statuary. Seriously, I’ve never seen a movie more obsessed with statues, mostly ones of vaguely religious imagery.
