Although the opening scene takes place in the "North" of this country and Troxartas's castle is in the "South," where Deathstalker had to travel by boat, Marinda, who is from the South and had never left her home prior to meeting Deathstalker, is somehow able to find her way north, locate the people from the opening scene, and bring them back south to the battle in about 15 minutes.

Sure, go ahead; make fun of this movie. Rip it for the occasionally questionable editing, the typically (as far as second rate fantasy movies go) overly-ambitious plot, or the eyebrow raising subtext. Do all of that, and you're still left with a gem, if unpolished, of a sword and sorcery film. For starters, this movie exhibits an enthusiasm, more so than others of its kind, and forgiving a couple marginal performances, the actors and actresses fall right in line with this theme. Is it a classic, up there with Conan the Barbarian, or the Lord of the Rings Trilogy? Of course not. But if you enjoy action, strong female characters, and fantastic stories, then by all means, take the time to watch this little-known pearl, whether it be the original, or the MST version.
This is good stuff!! Long live Deathstalker!!
