On a journey to find the cure for a Tatarigami's curse, Ashitaka finds himself in the middle of a war between the forest gods and Tatara, a mining colony. In this quest he also meets San, the Mononoke Hime.
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

According to Ralph Bakshi's commentary on the DVD, the animators found working for Frank Frazetta to be so daunting that some of them even fainted when Frazetta visited the set. See more »
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 »
But, Father, I want to be with you when you meet Nekron's men.
You will serve your people better here with your studies, my daughter. Give me your love.
You have it always, Father.

Forget "Wizards", this is the best Ralph Bakshi ever has given! Using Frank Frazetta's characters and art, he created this beautiful and stunning epic that has more life and interest than any other movie he has done. Wheras "Wizards" just is confusing and way too cartoonish to be taken seriously, "Fire and Ice" never shows any humor or cartoonish elements. It is simply a straight foward and to-the-point action cartoon. It also is a bit deeper and interesting than most of the other "sword and sorcery" movies in the 80s. Definately recommended!!!!
