Tarzan and the warrior princess
30 June 2002 | by Jim TrittenSee all my reviews

The basic story is not bad, but this is just not a great movie. The hero follows a stag through the woods on his quest, tames lions, escapes all danger, and wins the female leader of the slaves. Compounding poor production and stiff acting is that the English subtitles are not contrasted against the background, making reading them difficult if not impossible at times. Then too, many shots, including some with subtitles, do not stay on the screen long enough to register. Production does not contrast well with DeMille epics nor Massimo Girotti's acting with that of Johnny Weissmuller, Douglas Fairbanks, Sr., or Errol Flynn. On the plus side, there are some very interesting scenes involving differences in tournament jousting -- much different that what we have seen in English mythology films. Best left in the can.
