I love these kind of movies – barbarians, princesses, evil beings from the nether regions, hero conquerors and fantasy landscapes splattered with all sorts of weird creatures.
But this is awful.
No, truly. This is the kind of thing I used to watch loads of as a kid in the 80s and I was probably awestruck by the special effects but now, oh no, not now. Not in a million movies does any of this hold up today. Flash Gordon is better.
The plot is one line – hero rescues princess. The acting is amateur at best, the effects are so dated its a wonder they haven’t come back in fashion (no, they never will) and it’s so drawn out that you wonder if there was any editing done at all or perhaps the director was on holiday when the movie was actually made.
Having said all of that…… Tucker Jenkins is in it, Irish guy from Star Wars reboot and Taken is in it, him from New Tricks and loads of other stuff is in it. I mean a plethora of British actors in very young form. It’s a laugh to see them… but maybe just for five minutes.
Overall, no. One from that era when films with small budgets could not do effects or story.
Watch if on TV?
No, no, no-no, no
