Product Description

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.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brigitte and Arnold cut up 15 May 2005
By bernie VINE VOICE
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 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 Brigitte or Janet Agren? 21 Sep 2012
By A. W. Wilson TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A spur of the moment purchase of an old much watched favourite, and I am glad I did. This cheap (VFM) Optimum Release doesn't disapoint. An excellent Scope print with great colour and sound, which show off the beautiful landscapes to perfection. It's 84 mins long so can't, and doesn't, get bogged down with boring dialogue - which is perhaps just as well as neither Arnie nor Brigitte shine in the talking stakes - but that doesn't spoil a fun film with loads of well choreographed action and in particular I was impressed with the quite vicious swordfight between Sonya and Queen Gedrun (the wonderful Sandahl Bergman). It's an honest adventure with little or no pretentions to be anything other than entertainment. At this price you can't really go wrong. Let me leave you with a question - Does anyone else out there think maybe Janet Agren (Sonya's sister) might just have been a better Sonya? A fiercer stronger face, and definitely physically able and Brigitte's equal?? Maybe not...
