Time Out says

Imported Finnish sexpot Carita plays the peace loving Queen of the Iceni, a Boadicea figure, forced into the war with the Romans that no one except the audience wants. Basically this is a British Western - never a good idea - with the Iceni subbing for the Cherokees, Druids instead of medicine men, and the Romans as the encroaching palefaces. It was shot in Ireland with the Irish army, co-opted as extras, required to kick the bejasus out of the Ancient Brits. They and Donald Houston as a ga-ga Druid are the only ones having much fun. Boadicea's grave is supposed to be under Platform 10 at King's Cross station: commuters may have felt something turning under their feet when this farrago was released.
