Fire and Ice
Time Out saysMore cut-ups from Bakshi's animated cut-outs. Here his collaborator is Frank Frazetta, dean of Sword'n'Sorcery illustration - and with predictable results. It's all Chas Atlas heroes slicing one another to bits in order to win ladies with more curves than a bunch of grapes. Complete with sub-Wagnerian score and just a hint of subliminal racism - the disposable 'subhumans' are dusky chaps, the hero an Aryan blond - it may well satisfy a low IQ, pubescent (probably) male Iron Maiden fan, but the rest of us are poorly served.
