3.0 out of 5 stars NEAT FILM, SHOULD BE BETTER PICTURE QUALITY THOUGH!, 4 July 2008
By 
This review is from: The Sword And The Sorcerer [DVD] (DVD)
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!
