Red Sonja

Film, Fantasy

Time Out says

Dim Conan style comic strip adventure about some prehistoric bint from Hyborea (Nielsen) wandering around seeking revenge on the evil Princess whatsername (Bergman), who's nicked some powerful talisman and is bent on destroying the world as rotten set designers know it. Big Arnie flexes his muscles but not his thespian talents, Nielsen (Stallone's friend) delivers her lines at two words a minute, and poor Ronald Lacey is forced to reprise his Raiders of the Lost Ark Nazi villain bit in exceedingly silly costumes and hats. Worst of all, there's a charmless brat prince for Sonja to take under her wing. Pap, and Fleischer - who at least brought a touch of humour to Conan the Destroyer - should know better.
