It is commonly believed that Robert E. Howard created the character of Red Sonja in one of his Conan short stories. In reality, he created a character with a similar name (Red Sonya) appeared in "Shadow of the Vulture," a story set in 16th-century Turkey with no Conan connections. This was the namesake of the famous "Red Sonja" who first appeared in a Conan comic book written by Roy Thomas and illustrated by Barry Windsor-Smith. See more »

Hatred of men in a lovely young woman... Such could be your downfall.
I don't hate ALL men, Grandmaster.

you know, i gave this movie an eight. yeah. really. i shouldn't have, but i did, and it's because it's a feel good movie, and better then that "santa clause: the motion picture," thing, even though santa and sonja are both kinda red. sort of. like, whenever you're watching it, you have this stark realization that life isn't so bad, that the vapors vapping your inner peace are really just the nasty shrimp you ate for dinner. i don't recommend shrimp for dinner or any time else. but shrimps are red, like sonja, and "red sonja," unlike shrimp, is worth it if only for some of the sword play and the fallen limbs, heads, rocks, etc. plus there's a bunch of scars and costumes, and costumes that are scars. oh, and arnold lifts a bunch of stuff too.
