Lady Death Review
Synopsis:Based on a comic book series. A woman burned at the stake in 15th century Sweden actually is Satan (Lucifer)'s daughter - and plots revenge against him.
Lady Death (2004) is directed by Andy Orjuela and is the animated motion picture adaptation of the popular comic book series by creator Brian Pulido and artist Steven Hughes. Lady Death is the daughter of Lucifer and later becomes a female warrior wielding a supernatural force. Some sources report this animated film had a budget of $10 million.
Lady Death takes us on a journey as Lady Death’s origin story is shown for those of you who may not be familiar with her origin. Formerly known as Hope, Lady Death vows to kill her father Lucifer and rid us of his existence.
Studio ADV handled the animation and did not do the comic book character justice. The writing for this film is terrible. The introduction in Lady Deaths origin was rushed and instead more focus was given to the dribble dialogue and gore. They spared no limit on the amount of gore they included in this film. The character designs are atrocious with most of the characters looking like horrible bodybuilders, and every character has gray tongues, why? The voice acting falls horribly short of veterans Andy McAvin (Angelic Layer), Christine Auten (Bubblegum Crisis: Tokyo 2040), and Chris Patton (RahXephon). Disappointing that quality was degraded as this could have been a seriously awesome action gore comic book adaptation film.
