In a mythological land, a female tribe is slaughtered by marauding male barbarians leaving the warrior Hundra as the lone survivor. She sets out to find a suitable male to mate with to re-start a new tribe. Soon, she winds up in a walled city run by a group of chauvinistic men.
Hundra has the one original angle of being a feminist slant on the sword and sorcery cycle of films from the mid-80's. The genre had been usually typified by scantily clad barbarian women with little in the way of political correctness. So Hundra stands out a little from the crowd, although Red Sonja from a few years later was coming from a similar place. That said, it isn't above having the heroine ride her horse naked into the ocean for an unorthodox bath! In fairness, it's hardly the most gratuitous nudity and the film overall is noticeably less dependent on erotic moments than most others from this type of flick. Laurene Landon is spirited in the title role. She clearly does a lot of her own stunts and gives a very physical performance.
It's not a great film though sadly. The main problem is that its pace lags in the middle too much. After a great start the action slows down once the heroine arrives at the city. This means that it feels like the running time could have been reduced by ten to fifteen minutes. But, that said, there are good fight scenes that bookend the film. And the production values overall seem pretty good with some decent locations and a stirring Ennio Morricone score to add some additional class. In the final analysis, Hundra is no classic and is weak in its middle section but it does have some good things about it.
