When her sister dies at the hands of an evil queen, the fearsome warrior Red Sonja (Brigitte Nielsen) sets out to seek her revenge. Joining forces with the only man who can match her in a fight (Arnold Schwarzenegger), Sonja battles all the monsters and magicians who stand in her way, until she finally comes face-to-face with the queen. However, as the evil one holds a talisman which can destroy the world, the conclusion is far from foregone. Richard Fleischer directs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Flawed but fun to watch 31 Aug 2006
If I am honest I probably would not have bought this film if it had not been so cheap but it is enjoyable if you like swords and sorcery films. Red Sonja is a revenge driven swordswoman seeking out a talisman in the possession of an evil queen so that it does not destroy the world. Along the way she meets the boy ruler of a destroyed kingdom with his bodyguard and a mighty warrior who must see the talisman destroyed. All your basic fantasy fare but the film is enjoyable enough and although there is some rather dire dialogue and acting, but nothing worse than many films released around the same time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brigitte and Arnold cut up 15 May 2005
You need to prepare you self for this movie; move the furniture out of the way and send the cats out of the room. Or they maybe victims of sword play.

Yep you guessed it Arnie (Hercules in New York) is back and he is talking. Toss in Brigitte Nielson and a sprinkle of the evil Sandahl Bergman. And you have an afternoon of fun and revenge.

Seems there is the talisman (some glowy plastic thing) that only women can touch. If it gets too much light it will destroy the world. It is captured by a dark queen with great ambition. Red Sonja, who hates men, must team up with Kalidor (Arnold Schwarzenegger) to make sure the talisman is properly disposed of before it destroys the world. They have many trials and tribulations along the way. Will they succeed?

5.0 out of 5 stars Red Sonja 22 Dec 2010
By Andy
THIS IS A CLASSIC. Based on an ongoing comic, first appeared in Conan comics, this is a stunning tale which also stars Arnold Swartzenegger but not as Conan, he appears here as Prince Kalidor. Also appearing as a villainess, Sandhal Bergman who was Conan's life love Valeria in Conan the Barbarian! Small world.

And Brigitte Nielsen is hot stuff.

If you're new to the idea of Red Sonja and Conan I would highly recommend watching this before the 2011 remake hits the cinemas. That way you can make up your own mind which the better film is.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm not a lesbian, but I love this movie! 23 Dec 2009
This was one of my all time childhood favourite films - was very pleased to find out that they had finally released it on DVD (and not region 1). I know it's supposed to be some sort of lesbian cult thing - I didn't realise this as I was growing up - I suppose the whole warrior heroine thing could be viewed that way? It is well cheesy, but it's a good story with some entertaining characters and just the right amount of sentiment - and anyway, there aren't enough fighting fantasy movies out there. Lord of the Rings it ain't, but it's better than that Dungeons and Dragons cr@p from a few years back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Blu Ray! 21 Sep 2012
By Cal S
What a great Blu Ray, the images and definition are amazing for a movie this old. Better Blu Ray conversion that most new movies today. This film in Blu Ray displays in Full HD perfectly! With the standard movie aspect ratio (so you see it in cinema widescreen, not a square box like you may have seen on TV).

The film itself is a classic with a great story. With Big Arny in it you cant go wrong!

Would recommend this for anyone looking to buy a great classic film and a cheap Blu Ray.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pure Pleasure 22 Jun 2012
I love this movie.
I first saw it as a kid and then was able to get a copy on DVD as part of a Schwarzenegger boxset. Now I've been able to get my hands on this film on Bluray and have to commend this version as the movie looks great.
It's a shame Schwarzenegger was made to be the big star of this film as it's truly Brigitte Nelson who steals the show here.
It has an element of She-Ra to it, so as a fan of the Masters Of The Universe movie growing up, it was a similar style movie so that is most likely what drew me to it initially.
Unfortunately I couldn't give this release a full 5 stars because the bonus features are beyond dreadful. We get some poor 'best of Schwarzenegger' movie clips and then a brief 8 minute-or-so subtitled interview with one of the editors on the Red Sonja film (should be noted this Editor left the movie half way through?!) and he basically talks about the director and the camera-man and briefly about Schwarzenegger and mentioned Nelson and then it ends... No making-of, no trailer, no cast interviews, no director commentary... excuse my language here but the extras are piss-poor and this release deserved much more, otherwise what is the point in putting it out on Bluray?

4.0 out of 5 stars Good girly movie 16 Nov 2007
I surprisingly like this film. It is definately a film for the girls. The heroine is strong & independent & you even get a muscular guy thrown in for us woman to feast our eyes on. It is a light hearted movie to enjoy when you have a girls get-together. The plot is entertaining enough & the scene/set is also acceptable, although quite sub-standard for some who would compare it to todays technology. It does have an 80's feel about it - mullet & all. The acting was a bit stiff, but overall as the film is quite entertaining the whole way through, you can kind of overlook this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid Like The Plague 7 Aug 2014
By Mr. C. Gelderd VINE VOICE
This sadly is billed as another lead for Arnold Schwarzenegger, but he barely appears in it. He’s more of a supporting role, popping up now and then, and probably he’s off screen for over half the movie itself. In an obvious nod to his role as Conan, here changed legally to another name, the few battle scenes we have are bloody and brutal, but they aren’t strong enough to carry the basis of the film. Nielsen suffers at a very limited acting range for her debut, and doesn’t give Sonja enough pathos or gravitas to help us relate or care to her.

It’s clear the acting talent here is good, but they aren’t taking the film seriously, and who can blame them. It’s a clichéd swords and sandal film, and full of wooden dialogue and a revenge plot built on the basis of a rejected lesbian advance by Bergman’s Queen. It’s not exactly strong stuff, and a very weak basis to build a film on.
Stick with Conan if you want to see Schwarzenegger in a role like this that actually works, because sadly this film is a wasted chance to capitalise on his role, and it’s a big clunky mess.

Same as with Conan - luv this type of film. Great for escapism. Focus on the film and nothing else, and it's like you're there. For the price, it's a giveaway. Read more
