"I thought this "movie" was good. However if you can find the 48 TV episode version of this "Adventures of Sword Girl" or "Treasure Venture" it'll be a lot better. I was hoping they'd keep the TV openning theme for this release, but that didn't happen. I was also disappointed when they left out the very end that the TV version had. The story is good. The action was good, but I was hoping for more choices of subtitles and soundtracks."
Good action/Poor dvd

"The case of this movie looked so good so I bought it. Well, when the first scene comes out it looks like someone grabbed a personal camcorder and started filming. What a big dissapointment. The action is great, but poor poor video quality. Rent it before u buy!"
It's obviously a low budget tv miniseries.

"The settings and costumes reveal this as a low budget tv miniseries. The plot is interesting because it's different than most other films of this kind. The acting and fighting scenes are below average."
