This review is from: The Beastmaster [DVD]  Don Coscarelli, Marc Singer, Tanya Roberts, Rip Torn, John Amos, Joshua Milrad (DVD)
I have been waiting for this DVD release for ages and it finally arrived. I have loved this film ever since I first saw it on TV once. I wanted to introduce my boyfriend to it.
He was a bit skeptical though, as our main character does run around in a loin cloth with muscles to rival Conan. Yet the story itself remains pure magic.
An unborn child, chosen for sacrifice who is saved by a traveler whom becomes his "father". In later years he discovers he has the ability to control animals. When his village is destroyed he is the only one to survive by the graces of his dog. He turns to revenge, gathering new companions (animals) along the way. His bond with his animal companions is what really is great for me. His two thieving ferrets are definitely the comic tone in the movie. He joins up with a rebellious group and helps to save their king. This king refuses to listen and accept the aid of the Beastmaster to overthrow an evil sorcerer. There is a lot of action, magic, friendship, and even the loneliness of being an outsider. Something anyone can enjoy!
