Product description

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.

This is one of my old favourites and I was really glad to see it available on DVD, as I only recently got rid of my video version. I went for the slightly more expensive version of the DVD and I'm glad I did. It's a very good clear version of this now pretty old film. Top quality.

Imagine if you will 'Conan' mixed with Indiana Jones then add a pinch of classic 'The Vikings'. Sounds a bit crazy - which is essentially what we have with 'The Sword And The Sorcerer!' The movie was originally released in 1982 to coincide with the release of Conan, and the two movies have a similar basic premise, but unlike Conan this movie doesn't take itself quite as seriously. The result is some fun, if slightly over long, swash buckling action. Lee Horsley (complete with over-blown 80's hair and make-up) hams it up to the max as the lead, seeking vengeance on a villainous king played with guster by Richard Lynch. Brit Simon MacCorkindale provides some worthy support, while Kathleen Beller fulfils the eye candy role more than adequately. Also worth a mention is Richard Molls memorable nasty Xusia (the Sorcerer of the title) who doesn't get anywhere near enough screen time. The dialogue and performances often fall short, and this movie is forever teetering on the 'so bad it's good' precipice, at times heading for self destruct only to redeem itself at the last minute. The score is a decent attempt at taking John William's Indiana Jones theme and adapting it to the middle-ages, yet sometimes seems a little over indulgent. Ultimately though it deserves its cult status - check out Talon and Cromwell continually springing additional weapons to carry on the grudge match in the finale! The DVD itself is a German import with an additional English stereo track, which varies in quality, where-as the picture appears to have been transferred direct from a VHS. It's not unwatchable but I'd recommend paying the extra for the out of print Anchor Bay release or cross your fingers there's a re-release, which may not be too far away if the rumours of the long awaited sequel to come soon prove true.

This is one awesome 80s movie, probably one of the best ever made, miles better than the likes of Conan etc, this is an epic fantasy tale of might and magic and sorcery with a great action packed plot thats nicely paced and has great effects visual and mostly practical, the cast is good and the music score is great too, Albert Pyun (cyborg, nemesis) did a fantastic job at directing it, the movie cost around 4million to make back in the 80s and every penny was spent into making this one of the greatest and most visually awesome films of that decade a must see for any sci-fi fantasy fan.

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!

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.
