Trivia

Richard Moll only played the sorcerer in the opening scene, because he had a bad reaction to the contact lenses and was sent to the hospital. Xusia's other scenes at the end of the movie were done by a stand-in and later dubbed by Moll. See more »

At last ... Worthwhile mindless entertainment!
18 October 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What's not to like? A great balance among all the elements of what makes film fun. Lee Horsley resembles Errol Flynn, and Robert Tessier fills the screen and steals every scene, as always. Richard Lynch curls his lip a lot, the sneering Jay Robinson is on board, and the special effects don't interfere with the plot, as in today's SFX-o-ramas. Plenty of gorgeous gals in great costumes, and without great costumes. Shakespearean skullduggery abounds everywhere, buckles get swashed, and people walked out of the theatre saying "I thought they didn't know how to make them like that anymore." (Hey, wait a minute ... we're STILL saying that!) Highly recommended!
