It's not STAR WARS but ---
27 June 2001 | by (Los Angeles CA) – See all my reviews

Like many potentially great sci-fi flicks THE WARLORD suffers from many problems caused by its starvation budget. Though it was shot for peanuts in 1996 as a t-v pilot on the Paramount back lot -- and looks it-- it nevertheless has a lot to recommend it. It is worth watching if only to see veteran Rod Taylor back in harness and to see yet another brilliant performance by multi-talented teen Elisabeth Harnois. (I can't understand by Hollywood doesn't recognize this youngster's extraordinary talents. She should have been a super star long ago.) The cast does an excellent job with a weak script and Joe Dante's direction is flawless. I found THE WARLORD to be an entertaining two hours,infinitely better than much of the dreck that is passing as excellent cinema in these strange days.
