Quotes

[the heroes bring the Stormqueen before her subjects]
Zar: Supremacy of one sex over the other is evil, and it's also ridiculous, as we will now show you.
[Zar tears off the Stormqueen's robes, revealing her secret]
Female Villager: [Shocked] It's a... a man!
[the shocked villagers either laugh or gasp]
Sulan: [laughing] After all, behind every great woman, there's a man.
Stormqueen: People of Ishtan, listen to me! You can't blame me for being born a boy. My mother made me do it. So I can be queen too.

Quite bad, but not a complete loss
29 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

1987?! It seems to be from the very early '80s, complete with the most terrible of electronic sound effects.

Anyway, this is a fantasy movie set in a Conan-like world, where the women happen to rule. If you can get past the very dull first 45 minutes (there's very little dialogue; I fast-forwarded through most of it), the movie actually gets almost watchable. Almost. There are (intentionally as well as unintentionally) funny bits and details, but the production values remain quite low. The main reason to see the movie is to ogle the warrior women. Especially the main character, Ara (Kai Baker), and the enemy warlord, Girda (Anne Marie Ricci), are lookers. The Queen, OTOH, is somewhat obnoxious, but has a secret that isn't quite believable (let's just say that it's a gay court...).

In general, you probably shouldn't bother watching this movie. If you're starving for fantasy movies, no matter how bad, you may find it worthwhile. Otherwise you won't.

3 out of 10.
