Think Blade meets La Femme Nikita. There are about a trillion influences and clichés pumped into this comic book adaptation: buddy-cop movies, Dungeons and Dragons, Highlander, Cyberpunk, and Mortal Kombat, to name a few. Schizophrenic as it may feel, it’s also surprisingly dramatic.

Witchblade delivers with the gorgeous Yancy Butler. Her solid and charismatic performance slices through glaring techno music and cheesy dialogue. With her performance at the series’ center, it may find a loyal audience.
