Customer Reviews

The storyline was good, but not all together based on the comicbook story line, but good none the less.
Amanda Warnock
I don't know what more to say about this because I don't want to give too much away, because it doesn't make a lot of sense anyway and people will just get confused.

I am not very fussy with animation as I am a big fan of the genre but I highly doubt this will remain in my collection.

Well, I can honestly say that this is the first time that I experienced a film that had literally no meat or potatoes in it. The entire film felt like it was just the salad with no main course. The story line was fallible and laughable, the characters were one-dimensional, the realism was out the window, and the animation was done by four-year olds. Does that cover it? I have never been more embarrassed for a concept in my entire life. I have never read the comics or seen the other programs with this character, but from the looks of the other reviews I am not off base with my observation.

To begin, the story moved too quickly. For someone new to this character and situations, I needed more built into creating the reasons instead of finding the solution. I have seen other Anime (if you could call this one an Anime) that do great things with their characters because they take the time to develop them. There was nothing set aside for Lady Death. In a few short scenes, we see her train with Cremator and instantly become this aggressive she-beast of Hell. This was hard for me to swallow, considering moments before she was introduced as this weak and feeble woman controlled by her father. Suddenly, she is immersed with hatred and can do battle with an existence that has been around for millions of years. This was absurd. The presentation of Lady Death was poor, to say the least. I felt as if she was nothing more than an animated character instead of a desperate woman with revenge on the mind. For me, it just didn't work. She was nothing more than eye-candy for prepubescent boys wanting to ogle the mass quantities of skin that she suddenly grew on her chest when training with Cremator. Oh, I felt sick just watching her. The same goes for the character of Cremator.

I have to admit that I hadn't read the comic book version of "Lady Death". I rented this out of sheer curiosity when I saw it on the website of my online dvd rental service. The premise of the film sounded intriguing. A young girl Hope is the daughter of a mercenary named Matthias who isn't what he appears to be. When villagers make accusations against Matthias for a fiery incident at his castle, Hope is punished for her father's crimes by the townsfolk and is burned at the stake. When Hope is reunited with her father in the underworld, she finds out his real identity as Lucifer. She quickly rejects her father's offer to rule the underworld and conquer the world together. Her rejection automatically sends her to Lucifer's former comrade Cremator. Under Cremator's tutelage, Hope slowly transforms into Lady Death both physically and emotionally. Lady Death is determined to bring down her father once and for all.

I personally liked this movie. It isn't perfect. I have seen better animation from other anime films. The animation just seemed dated and didn't lack the vibrant colors or the amazing visuals that films like "Ghost in the Shell" or any of Hayao Miyazaki films possesses. The dialogue was terribly cheesy and unintentionally hilarious. I bet a chimpanzee could have written better dialogue than the humans that came up with this script. Despite the unimpressive animation, thin plot, and unintentionally funny dialogue, I still found this film rather entertaining. I guess I can chalk it up as a guilty pleasure for this reviewer.

I just wanted to add to everyone else, and say that this movie sucked if your a fan of the comic or just someone who like more adult animation please skip this movie. The animation is terrible, and the voice acting is craptastic. When the devil is speaking you cant even hear what he is saying. The audio on his voice is way lower then the rest of the cast. The frame rate on the animation is so pore that sometimes the characters look like they are moving in slow motion. I am a fan of the comic and I can say that this movie diserves a 1 out of 5.

Lady Death is a great movie!I am one of the biggest Lady Death fans with having comics,litho's,statues,and a full picture tattoo of her from head to heel on my back and even with all the so-called negative reviews I still love this movie.The anime style actually works really well for this picture.Hope is wrongly accussed by the town of devil worship after her father escapes into hell leaving her behind.She is then burned at the stake only to be saved by a prayer her father taught her.Hope realizes her father is Satan after he saves her and Hope is delivered to hell.Satan has his own evil plan in the works the whole time.Hope receives help from an unlikely ally and is transformed into Lady Death during her training.Lady Death must now stop Satan in a battle for hell.The movie does stay true to the comic and the origins of Lady Death for one hell of a thrill ride from start to finish.This is an awesome movie that any true Lady Death fan will love.If you want to nitpick about every detail then you won't enjoy it,but if you take Lady Death for what she is,a sexy as hell, ass-kickin,demon slaying vixen that will set your heart racing,then you will appreciate this picture.There is plenty of blood,and gore with sweet battle scenes that are very cool with the anime style.Bottom line take the good with the bad and enjoy Lady Death kicking some ass!!! Lady Death Rocks!!!
