The Sword of Doom Fmovies review

The Sword of Doom is for me one of the biggest surprises of the year 1966. I don't watch many movie online from Action genre, but this one was amazing. I can easily recommend. It has a beautiful storyline. It is really hard not to smile while watching The Sword of Doom. I love how music just is the pure soul of that movie. The Sword of Doom gives the viewer unusual emotions. They are unpleasant, they drill a hole in the stomach and in the mind. And this is the beauty of this film. A nomination for an Oscar is not enough. Sure there are classic movies which everyone like, and they are great. But The Sword of Doom is just non stop awesome from start to finish.... Show more
