This movie gets better with age. If you've got a sense of humor and don't need Industrial Light and Magic special effects, the combination of actors (all playing off the winsome Brigette Nielson) makes this a fun movie to see again...or for the first time. It's probably also the movie that got Arnold in hot water during the "recall."

Reminds me of the good-old Drive-In movie days.Reviewed byjack flynnVote: 6/10
Let's just settle this before I start - this is a bad bad movie! You will behard pressed to find such awful acting anywhere as Miss Nielsen, 'veteran'director Richard Fleischer stumbles blindly through a non-existant plot, andyou will feel absolutely no sympathy for either the good guys or the bad -in other words you just won't care!
I would love to have hated this film - as a self-proclaimed 'movie-buff'this is the kind of film I should not even go near. But I'm loathed toadmit...I enjoyed it! The two stars, amongst their awful acting, areactually quite engaging in a comedic way (intentional or not!). I began torelish the dialogue scenes just to see if a line could have been deliveredwith any more wood! The intentional comedy comes from a young prince (ErnieReyes Jr) and his bodyguard (Paul Smith). Although I wished the prince tofind the end of a sword as quickly as possible from his first scene, theinterplay between these two characters was amusing, with some one-linersthat could not have been more out of place in this film! The villainousqueen (played by Sandahl Bergman) is unfortunately bland and forgettable.But one real treat for me was another completely out-of-place commodity - agreat rousing score from maestro Ennio Morricone!
This was Schwarzenegger's return to his CONAN genre after hitting it bigwith THE TERMINATOR. It isn't too surprising that this was the last 'swordsand sorcery' movie he did - but I promise you won't hate it! You'll wantto!....but you won't!
This is a wonderfully moral sword and sorcery epic. Arnold Schwarzenegger portrays a heroic man of high character unlike the amoral Conan. His portrayal of Kalidor is understated and that makes it WORK. Brigitte Nielsen while a raw talent, still manages to put this film over. She is what one expects a Red Sonja to be: a simple, brave, barbarian woman with a sense of loyalty and oath upholding that is so alien to our modern world. Sandahl Bergman as the nefarious Queen Gedren is marvelous. She has a plum role playing a villainous megalomaniac and she enjoys every minute of it. Paul Smith and his sidekick Ernie Reyes Jr. almost steal the show, quite charming. Again there is a humanity in Smith's character, this loyalty and taking seriously of an oath that rings true for the imagined world of this sword and sorcery entry. Tutte Lemkow's portrayal of a wizard is one of the minor roles that is very well done. Of all the sword and sandal movies I have seen over the years I have a special place for this 1985 film. It is a feel good movie, romantic, exciting, beautiful scenery and costumes and an excellent ARNOLD film.
