Journey to deepest, darkest Africa for thrills, romance and high adventure! Starring Tanya Roberts,Sheena brings to life the legendary queen of the jungle in a spectacular epic shot entirely in Kenya. Orphaned in Zambouli territory, the blonde Sheena (Roberts) is raised by a noble tribe and taught to communicate telepathically with all creatures. She gets a firsthand lesson in love from Vic Casey (Ted Wass), a wisecracking TV journalist. In Africa for a story on a royal football player, Prince Otwani (Trevor Thomas), Vic soon finds himself embroiled in a web of political intrigue. And when the evil prince decides to invade the Zamboulis' land, it is up to Sheena to rescue Vic and save her idyllic kingdom!

3.0 out of 5 stars Three Stars, But A Great Guilty Pleasure July 29, 2005
Format:DVD
Deep in Africa, late at night, a Range Rover bounces over a rough track when suddenly the headlights pick out a face...a man buried up to his neck in sandy soil. A young couple, scientists, are horrified. They get out and walk to the face. The eyes are open and staring. Suddenly a tall native appears and tells them they are intruding on sacred soil. Then other natives appear with torches and begin to dance around the huddled couple and the head. And from the car appears a small, blond child, curious but apparently unafraid. At the climax, the head moves, shoulders appear, the body rises from the soil, free of the terrible sores which had afflicted it. Mysteriously, the man has been healed.

Days later, the couple set out to explore the source of the healing soil which seems to be from a cave in the sacred Guchar Mountain. Unknown to them they are followed by their child. When they are killed in a cave in, the child survives. And then the shaman lifts the child in the air before a gathering of the tribe and proclaims to all that "the prophecy has come to pass. When a day when the sacred mountain cries out, a golden god child shall come from the depths of Guchar and she shall grow in wisdom and be the protector of the Zamboulis and all their creatures...and she shall be called Sheena, queen of the jungle."

Sheena (Tanya Roberts) grows into a strikingly beautiful woman, who sleeps with snakes, plays with elephants, splashes with hippopotami and rides zebras. She has telepathic power and can call not only on mammals and reptiles, but on birds as well, small and large. In fact, those who have seen the shapely Sheena swear that she has the biggest parakeets in Africa.

But enough of that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just Imagine a Female Tarzan. August 21, 2004
By Wuchak
Format:DVD
With slight modifications, Sheena is basically just a female version of Tarzan, my all-time favorite fictional character. Everyone pretty much knows going in that the plot, dialog and acting of a film like this will be of the "B" movie variety, and it is, sort of like Indiana Jones but a bit less compelling. What's magnificent, awe-inspiring and "A" level are the African locations (Kenya), the score and Tanya Roberts.

Seriously, if you're bored with your every-day locale this movie is the perfect antidote. It's virtually a two-hour tour of some of the most gorgeous African scenery you'll ever feast your eyes upon. As for the score, it's pleasant and meditative; reminiscent of "Chariots of Fire." Regarding Tanya Roberts, what can I say? She's stunning.

I never concern myself with ratings when watching films, but I couldn't help but be a little surprised by the PG rating here because Sheena (Roberts) is shown TOTALLY nude on a number of occasions and prances around throughout the flick in a ridiculously skimpy leather bikini; but then it struck me that it's portrayed in an inoffensive way like Eve in Eden before the fall and the consequent awareness of evil. In other words, there's an almost child-like innocence and purity to Sheena even though she's a quite skilled warrior. I commend the film-makers for successfully capturing this quality. For this reason I personally don't feel the movie is inappropriate for kids, despite the nudity.

My rating of B- reflects the happy medium between the Grade C plot, dialog & acting and the Grade A African locations, score and Ms. Roberts.

The film runs 117 minutes.

GRADE: B-

2.0 out of 5 stars Sheena Was Made To Showcase Tanya Roberts July 7, 2005
Format:DVD
Sheena wasn't made to win any Academy awards. Nevertheless, for a "B" film the photography is actually quite good. Granted, Tanya's acting ability at this time in her life needed a lot of work. I'm sure the producers were aware of this going in and didn't care. They knew the attraction would be to watch Sheena doing her thing in her jungle outfit. Tanya was the perfect choice considering the reason for the film. Sheena was made to showcase Tanya Roberts stunning physical attributes and was successful in this regard. She is the reason the movie is still moderately popular after 20 years. So if you like this type of eye-candy film, enjoy! It wasn't meant to be anything else.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great looking DVD December 14, 2003
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Okay, you don't watch this for a magnificient plot nor review it like you would a epic blockbuster. That said, someone at Columbia Pictures must really love this film because the digital transfer is gorgeous, except for the opening credits (which start a quarter hour into the movie) and closing credits: these scenes have a lot of "dirt" on the print. Other than those, it is a flawless transfer. You get anamorphic widescreen on one side and full screen on the other. Subtitles in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese(!), Korean(!), & Thai(!!),(evidently the film is big in the Far East). The music score is beautiful and far beyond what you'd expect for this kind of movie. Yes, there is a cheesy model helicopter crash and the horse is painted like a zebra; however, a great looking DVD for a "guilty pleasure" movie. Check your brain at the door and enjoy it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sheena-- A Female Tarzan! May 18, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Ok, I can say I liked this movie. Tanya Roberts does a a good job in the title role as "Sheena." I can also say, this is not Tanya's best work.
If I had to categorize this flim I'd call it a Romance/Action-Drama. Something this movie has going for it is the eye catching scenery. It's beautiful! The interaction with the animals is amazing!
Though I enjoyed this movie, I feel I should should state, this movie is not for everyone. As I was watching this film the one thing that kept running through my mind was... "Sheena-- A female Tarzan." That is the BEST way I can describe this film.
If you like Tanya Roberts, or enjoy Tarzan movies you will probably like this movie.
