If you've seen as many 80s sword and sorcery movies as I have, you might recognise these common links:
- There will be a scene where a woman takes off her top.
- There will be a scene where women are swimming naked in a river and are being watched by drooling pervs.
- There will be a scene with sex in it.
- It is made in Argentina.
Oh, right, the movie. So anyway the amazons need to quite obviously find a magic sword since it's the only thing that can stand up to Kalungo's evil magic. Two amazon babes are sent on the quest, and it's hilariously wonderful. It's great fun to watch people use prop weapons they've never handled before. Especially when they haven't been given much supplementary training. You're basically given a bunch of calendar models who drill practice their spear maneuvers with 'What if I really hurt someone?' hesitance. A real winner's attitude on the mock-battlefield. Sword duels can sometimes look half-decent, but largely possess a 'What am I doing?' grace that lends the whole production metric ass-loads of charm.
So: A fantastic watch with friends. Can't get enough of this stuff.
