Product Description

Talon (Lee Horsley) is a master swordsman hired by the beautiful Princess Alana (Kathleen Beller) to save her brother Mikah (Simon MacCorkindale) from the clutches of the evil Cromwell (Richard Lynch). Setting out with his special three-bladed sword, Talon makes ready to fight anyone who stands in his way and get the job done quickly, so that he might return home and enjoy the night of love that Alana has promised him. But Cromwell is a truly diabolical villain and is prepared to use all manner of sorcery to impede the vigorous young chap's progress.

Good Sword & Sorcery action film, set in Dark Age/Medieval times (as opposed to Conan/Lord Of The Rings pre-history) with an overt fantasy edge.
It's successful in overcoming it's budgetary limitations, with plenty of action, decent sets/costumes etc and inventive visual FX. There's quite a high gore content here with grisly plague victims, heads cleaved in half, and hearts magically torn out! A very good villain too with the demonic, Sorcerer of the title (Great Make Up FX). The fight choreography is reasonable too with an impressive final sword fight ( incl. a three bladed mystical sword that can actually propel the blades, in missile fashion!)
The film has more of an Indiana Jones feel, than the intensity of Conan The Barbarian or Excalibur. It actually reminds me of Paul Verhoeven's Flesh And Blood, but with the Fantasy elements in full effect.
Oh, and there's a fair share of T & A for the lads!
The real dissapointment though is the picture quality - It looks a bit grainy, as if the film was copied direct from VHS onto DVD, instead of properly remastered. :(
It is still worth buying despite this, as still (just) better than VHS and it's a good film!

3.0 out of 5 stars 80's style sword and slashery! 26 Feb 2013
By Mr. S. Storey TOP 500 REVIEWER
Brandishing the mullet of an eighties pop star, our square jawed hero chews up the scenery with his strong Texan drawl. If the bad guys aren't scared by his enormous moustache he also has a three bladed sword to see them off! Two of the blades even fly. Yes, Lee Horsley is Talon; he's a pirate, a warrior, a legend; but more than that, he's the son of a murdered king, come back from years of exile to reclaim his birthright etc etc.

This brilliant fantasy swashbuckler had a budget of around ten pounds which could just about handle the creative leanings of its director Albert Pyun. There's a bucket load of action on offer which takes place amidst the misty swamps, ale houses and castles of a B-Movie universe. Most of the cast have a fair punt at the roles they've been given but Richard Lynch excels as the evil King Cromwell who seems to believe every word he's been given to say. You must understand that this romp is no Conan, but it is lots of fun.

3.0 out of 5 stars A BIG SLICE OF 1980'S FANTASY CHEESE! 5 Nov 2012
In a mystical world long ago, greedy and warlike King Cromwell (RICHARD LYNCH) decides to try once again, after several unsuccessful attempts, to conquer the land of his bitter enemy King Richard (CHRISTOPHER CARY). To ensure victory in this new campaign, Cromwell travels to the mysterious fog shrouded Tomb Island and invokes the long dead Demonic sorcerer, Xusia (RICHARD MOLL).

The invasion is soon complete and Richard slain, although his young son Talon (JAMES JARNIGAN) manages to escape the devastated kingdom along with Richards magical, three bladed sword.

Many years pass and Cromwell spends much of his time putting down revolts to his strict rule with the aid of trusted henchman Machelli (GEORGE MAHARIS), unaware that a revolution is being hatched by the idealistic Mikah (SIMON MACCORKINDALE) and his beautiful sister Alana (KATHLEEN BELLER).

Suddenly from distant shores, Talon (now played by LEE HORSLEY) returns to his homeland on a mission of revenge to kill Cromwell and restore the kingdom to its former glory. Now a mercenary and adventurer, the muscular hero is soon enlisted by Alana to help rescue Mikah, who has been betrayed and captured by Cromwell, and in so doing sets of a chain of events which will change their world forever.

A low budget affair directed by ALBERT PYUN that at times does well with limited resources, THE SWORD AND THE SORCERER is an enjoyable film but certainly not the best of the genre. Occasionally the special effects are horrendous and the sets wobble, but the ideas are good and with a larger budget the film could have been superb.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just read the title 13 Nov 2007
THE SWORD AND THE SORCERER came out the year after the brilliant CONAN THE BARBARIAN, and is defintly one of the best sword and sorcery flicks to have followed in Conan's wake. It tells the story of the young Prince Talon, who's parents are murdered by the evil king Cromwell (an excellent Richard Lynch) who is supported by the wizard Xusia. The film follows Talon into manhood and his quest for vengence. The film has plenty of action(its more blood thirsty than Conan) and features some great make ups and special effects. Lee Horsley is no Marc Singer or Schwarzenegger, but that is one of the film's only let downs. The character's names was my main problem, why is the bad guy's name Cromwell? I think it sounds too recent. Like Conan I think this is a film for looking at rather than listening. If you want pure entertainment this one is for you!
