  • FISCHER's rating of the film Swords of Blood

    Un film plutôt sympathique, aux scènes d'action menées avec brio et saveur, constamment nuancé d'une petite pointe d'humour voire d'ironie. Malgré certaines lourdes invraisemblances romanesques, psychologiques et surtout historiques, cette alerte réalisation pourra provoquer l'adhésion d'un public bon enfant. Pour notre part, on ne retiendra finalement que la dernière scène, insolite et magique... www.cinefiches.com
