Storyline

A barbarian named Kull unexpectedly becomes a king after an old king (whom Kull has just killed in a battle) gives his crown to him. But direct heirs of a killed king, trying to topple Kull and regain the throne, bring an old witch-queen Akivasha back to life. Their plan backfires, however, as Akivasha is going to allow their lords - demons - to rule the kingdom. The only thing that can stop her now is a breath of the god Volka.

Trivia

Akivasha's line, "I am altering our bargain. Pray I don't alter it any further!" is a corruption of Darth Vader's "I am altering the deal. Pray I don't alter it any further!" from Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980). See more »

Goofs

When the King hands the crown to Kull a smoke-pot is visible in the crown to give the appearance of heat. See more »

Quotes

Tu: You see, m'lord, every noble has brought the prize of his house. Fanara, from the House of Balin. As pure as virgin snow.
Kull: [Kull looks closely at her] We've met.
[walks away]
Kull: She's not that pure.
Tu: Shh.

Fun to watch because it doesn't take itself too seriously...
15 October 1999 | by See all my reviews

Unlike the "Conan" movies of the 1980's which were MEANT to be taken seriously at every turn and were UNINTENTIONALLY funny, "Kull" never attempts to be more than what it is: an action film with a healthy dose of humor, nice effects and nicely choreographed action sequences.

This isn't "King Lear" and it isn't meant to be. Just sit back and have some fun.
