3.0 out of 5 stars low budget fantasy flick that has charm., 19 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Barbarian Queen [1985] [DVD] (DVD)
This was part of the 1980's sword and sorcery craze. The movies ran from the ecellent "conan' and 'legend' , which were A list movies to great b movies like 'beastmaster'> there were alot of movies with various budgets back then and this was on the VERY low budget scale. This isn't a b movie it's a c movie. Ok , or perhaps a expliotation movie which are always pretty much c movies. On a c movie scale this is awkward but still entertaining. They did the best with what they had and that's the whole story here. The 80's meets ancient Rome! However movies are made for the people of the time of the movies RELEASE, that's the audience that they were aiming at and not the people who would be watching dvd's or whatever 26+++ years later. Few back then would have cared about the hairstyles, and other factors. Lana Clarkson who always put out the best performance regardless of the films budget or hokeyness; and many a list actors should learn from her on that regard, carries the movie here. She must battle her way to freedom against the odds. Ok,this is a c movie , so if you like c movies you'll probably like this one. A movie snobs should avioid this one probably. BUt I love a good c movie and this is one of those that are fun and not classic even for a c movie. THe film looks pretty good on this dvd too, some of these movies look like they were beaten with sticks. This movies print looks fine here. On a sad note Lana Clarkson was murdered by Phil Spector , the great music producer, who shot her because he was crazy. His son(I met him years ago) told me that he would carry guns to the dinner table and drugs had made him paranoid. Why he shot her is not known, but they did find him guilty of the crime. It was a sad end to a b movie queen.
