4.0 out of 5 stars SHEENA, 2 Jun 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sheena [DVD] [1984] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
This movie was made in 1984, is 117 mts long and is mostly in full screen presentation. Sheena's parents are taking samples in a cave, when it collapses and they die. Orphaned in Zambouli (SAMBURU) territory, Sheena (TANYA ROBERTS) is raised by noble tribe and taught to talk telepathically with all creatures. Sheena plays with chimpanzee and has elephants and hippo as friends. As she grows older, she plays with zebra, giraffe, eland and topi. The Zambouli are her tribe now.
There is titanium on the Zambouli land and the Royal football player Prince Diwani (TREVOR THOMAS) wants it. T V reporter Vic Casey (TED WASS) was travelling in his small plane and his photographer claims he saw a blonde girl swinging in trees near a water fall below. The Prince's brother, the King, is killed with an arrow and Vic Casey has it on film. Sheena's mentor is in jail and she goes and rescues her. The Prince wants the mentor and Sheena and gets an army to get them.
While following Sheena, Vic Casey and the rest get attacked by the army in the forest. The army attack one of the villages with fire and builetts and destroy it, as a lesson to others. Sheena is then captured along with Vic Casey. The film is shot entirely on location in KENYA with its beautiful scenary and wildlife. Will Sheena defeat the army with the help of the tribe and her animal friends? Will the Prince be punished by the law? Will Vic Casey come back to help?
