As far as mock busters go, this one at least has something.
A notoriously Indonesian carbon copy of the 1984 James Cameron sci-fi masterpiece clumsily gels together scenes from the latter film with a mythical tale of the "Queen of the South Sea" in a bloody stew of excessive violence, gorgeous women and bad dubbing.
Without giving away important plot points, as if there was any workable plot whatsoever. The Queen possesses a nerdy, bimbo anthropological student (Barbara Anne Constable), which somehow turns her into a leather-clad, drop-dead killing machine that would make Rose McGowan's Cherry Darling look like a plain-Jane desk secretary.
The supporting players in the film consist of a yuppie cop (Christopher J. Hart) who has to protect a pop singer (Claudia Angelique Rademaker) for unknown reasons except for a necklace that the title character is after.
Constable (looking a lot like Valeria Golino) fits into her dominatrix role rather nicely with some trace of human emotion more than Kristana Loken's laughable T-X. But I've got to give the filmmakers credit for attempting to redo a well-known Schwarzenegger film in a third-world country with all of the determination and limited resources available at the time.
Overall, if you are a trash purist, go with this film. If you are a die-hard Terminator fan, skip this one. Two stars for the film, and two stars for the actress playing the title role: the one and only Barbara Anne Constable.
