Storyline

Sheena's white parents are killed while on Safari. She is raised by the mystical witch woman of an African tribe. When her foster mother is framed for the murder of a political leader, Sheena and a newsman, Vic Casey are forced to flee while pursued by the mercenaries hired by the real killer, who hopes to assume power. Sheena's ability to talk to the animals and knowledge of jungle lore give them a chance against the high tech weapons of the mercenaries. Written by John Vogel <jlvogel@comcast.net>

Trivia

This movie had a long development history spanning a decade. Apparently, the success of Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes (1984) was instrumental in its production being green-lighted. See more »

Goofs

After the elephant crashes through the wall of the jail, the guards try to leave the room. Monkeys trying to trip the guards with a gun, drop the gun before the guards can trip on it, but the guards still fall. It happens about 36 minutes into the movie. See more »

Quotes

Sheena: I am not a foolish young girl. The Shaman taught me that brave tales do not always have happy endings. I know what guns can do. I know that you and I may not live to see another sunset.
Vic Casey: Mmmmm!
Sheena: You are an enemy!
Vic Casey: I'm what?
Sheena: The Shaman taught me- an enemy is someone who takes without asking!
Vic Casey: I'll ask then. May I?
Sheena: Yes! You will be welcome in Zukuru! The head man's locust bean cakes- they will be your locust bean cakes! His fermented buffalo milk will be your fermented buffalo milk!

A guilty pleasure if ever there was one!
28 January 2004 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

People really like to dump on this movie! Sure, it's dumb.... but it's NOT boring! And to the guys who say that Tanya Roberts looks more like a Valley Girl gone Troppo than a Jungle Queen (because a jungle girl would have hairy armpits)......LIGHTEN UP! This is Hollywood, remember? The Dream Factory! Escapism! Who wants Sheena to look like a bush pig?? Not me! As silly as it is, this movie is no worse than the Saturday afternoon matinees of long ago and it certainly is fun to watch, even though the dialog and a couple of the situations are a little cringe-worthy. The scenery (and the cinematography) is awesome and the animals are wonderful. The whole thing moves at a nice pace and yes, Miss Roberts DOES take her clothes off.... and that can't be a bad thing! Oh yeah, look for the string holding up the helicopter just before it crashes....marvelous!! This dvd deserves pride of place on your shelf right next to ANACONDA and GODZILLA. 7 out of 10.
