Storyline

In this animated tale, a tiny village is destroyed by a surging glacier, which serves as the deadly domain for the evil Ice Lord, Nekron. The only survivor is a young warrior, Larn, who vows to avenge this act of destruction. The evil continues, however, as Nekron's palace of ice heads straight towards Fire Keep, the great fortress ruled by the good King Jarol. When Jarol's beautiful daughter, Teegra, is abducted by Nekron's sub-human ape-like creatures, Larn begins a daring search for her. What results is a tense battle between good and evil, surrounded by the mystical elements of the ancient past. Written by Rone Barton Lokarr <sandbox2@ix.netcom.com>

Trivia

The two credited writers for this film, Roy Thomas and Gerry Conway, were well-known comic book writers, and both had served as editor-in-chief at Marvel comics in the 1970s. Thomas took over the position from Stan Lee in 1972, and Conway held it briefly in 1976. See more »

Goofs

Deathwolf rescues Larn from Nekron's iceberg, then both head to Fire Keep. They proceed to convince Jarol to lend him the DragonHawks so they can return to the glacier to rescue Teegra and kill Nekron. Why didn't they simply infiltrate the glacier while they were still there? After all, Larn got close enough to fire an arrow at Nekron. Deathwolf could have killed him there instead of wasting time heading back to Fire Keep. See more »

Neglected gem
10 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

I own Ralph Bakshis forgotten masterpiece Fire & Ice on an old OOP rental videotape.

Well for one thing, this is better than any other Conan-esque film you'll ever see. Sure, it's cheesy, but who cares? It stood the test of time, and the only way it started to look cheesy is in comparisons to modern fantasy epics like LOTR:FOTR (though I love that film.)

The plot goes like this: After a battle between Fire & Ice, a kings daughter is kidnapped by Jarols (Ice) subhuman creatures, while a sole survivor of a victimized village rescues her.

Yeah it doesn't sound as a original as Nurse Betty, but that's not the point. It is really to bring to life an interesting idea of a world of two enemies: Fire & Ice. And it succeeds.

As for the action scenes: superb. They are well handled, have terrific suspence, and have plenty of loud noises. Just check out the climatic battle, now THAT'S an ending!

The acting and dialogue: competent. Really. They aren't gonna be nominated for an Oscar, but they are OK and don't get on your nerves.

The animation is quite good. Shot on 3D and rotoscoped (I THINK), it looks pretty good. A lot of the backgrounds look really detailed and well drawn, and although the character designs feel a little 1-dimentional, they are OK.

Overall, this is a fine neglected little gem and will entertain you more than any of the superfical "entertainment". 10/10
