Quotes

Yor: Where'd you get that medallion?
[Roa looks at Yor's medallion]
Yor: What does it mean?
Roa: They say I came here together with those men, there, caught in the ice. Why I am alive and they are dead I don't know, and why the ice has formed in this parched desert is a mystery without an answer, but the little water that comes from it is vital to these people and they worship me, as a divine goddess.

Desert Zombies...apemen...cavegirls!
4 May 2000 | by roninjoker-2See all my reviews

Now here is a movie that gets a horrible rap, for reasons I can't fathom. Sure it's cheap, but at least it moves quickly. Yor is a strapping caveman type who runs from adventure to adventure, battling cool dinosaur puppets, desert zombie hordes, sex hungry ape men and more. Reb Brown certainly has the acting range of a baked potato, but Yor isn't exactly deep material.

Corinne Cleri is very stunning in her little cavegirl outfit, and when John Steiner comes in to explain it all, you can't help laughing.

Look for the funniest trapeze stunt you'll ever see a G.I. Joe perform!
