    That scene where the foil breaks and kills the opponent is based on a true event, search for it if you want but you won’t like the results.

    A great review as always sir! Glad I stumbled upon you, keep it up.

      Wow, I had a feeling something like this was possible. A shame.

      Thanks! Glad you are enjoying the show. :)

    “Alex fights Jack all while Elena stands there looking concerned.”

    Cliche #87: the leading lady best helps out her hero–the man she loves most–by just standing aside and letting him get his ass kicked. Big Fish is an perfect example of this.

    JDB’s Man In Black reminds me too much of Lord Tempo somehow.

      Bingo. Although at one point she tries but just ends up making the whole thing more difficult for Alex since he has to worry about him and her instead of just him.

    Oh my, watching this review is like Soul Calibur come to life. I was excepting Jack to don some Nightmare armor and talk about souls…

      That would have been awesome!

    So is there ever a scene where our hero, who likens himself to a pirate, gets to fight the ninja? Because that would be awesome!

    • Cecil_Trachenburg

      Unfortunately no. A shame, it could have been an early (possible first) recording of a pirate vs ninja duel!

        The Deadliest Warrior before its time!
