Joanne Pacula stars as Elizabeth, a warrior who returns home to England from the third crusade. She discovers that her young son has been captured by Greggor a rouge warlord, played by Rutger Hauer. Having recuited three other female fantasy characters she sets about trying to free her son.
It was a mistake to make the background England. The costumes, weaponry, culture, countryside and history are all wrong. Why not set it as somewhere in Europe since there is not a single English accent to be heard?
The script has the feel of something draughted up in an afternoon. The four heriones are clearly not more capable fighters than the mass of wariors that they defeat along the way. Rugter Hauer has put on more than a few pounds, and is showing his age. He adds litte more than his name to this third rate production.
On the plus side the plot does move at fair place and it might just appeal to a tomboy, who likes fantasy roleplaying.
