All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1) | Rotten (2)

  • By the Sword is about fencing, a sport not often covered in the movies, and it handles it in an interesting way - although the surrounding plot is a little too neat and obvious to really carry the material.

    Plenty of swordplay fails to sharpen this standard tale of revenge set in the professional world of sword fighting.
