The Emanuelle franchise was obviously very popular in Italy during the seventies and eighties; and as a result of that, just about every film that Laura Gemser has been involved in since bears the Emanuelle name, even if the films actually have nothing to do with earlier entries in the series. Emanuelle: Queen of the Desert is yet another example of an annoying Emanuelle cash-in, although to be fair; this film actually isn't all that bad. The plot is rather simple and focuses on a bunch of red blooded soldiers that rape a girl before having her thrown out of the window. They then go on the run in the desert; before running into Gemser's 'Tigress' character who takes revenge on them all. So we've basically just a rape and revenge set in the desert with Laura Gemser starring. The plot is rather well done and the characters are interesting enough to hold the audience's attention for at least a little while. Laura Gemser gets top billing but isn't really the star of the film; despite stealing it once she does arrive. She gets naked a couple of times and her revenge on the soldiers is fun enough. Naturally, the film doesn't give the audience anything to come away with; but it's a decent hour and a half of sex, violence and Laura Gemser and better than most of the other fake Emanuelle films.
