4.0 out of 5 stars "Oh Crocodile Queen, your people salute you." October 2, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Devil's Sword (1984) aka Golok setan came out at a time when the Indonesian film industry was thriving (it subsequently crashed in the 1990s), cashing in on various genres popular at the time including the fantasy genre, which came about primarily due to the popularization of the game Dungeons & Dragons in the late 1970s. Directed by Ratno Timoer (Revenge of the Ninja), the film stars popular Indonesian actor Barry Prima (Primitif, Special Silencers), who's probably best known for his character Jaka Sembung from the `Warrior' films. Also appearing is Gudi Sintara, Advent Bangun (The Warrior and the Blind Swordsman), Enny Christina, and Kandar Sinyo, most of who seem to have had a very limited career in film, appearing only in this feature.

As the film begins we see a wizened old man sitting on the ground, his meditations interrupted by a meteorite crashing to Earth. From the meteorite the old man fashions a mystical weapon (it's very glittery) so powerful, he ends up stashing it away for fear it might fall into the wrong hands. Anyway, seems there's evil power about in the form of a being known as the Invincible Crocodile Queen (Sintara), who resides in an underground lair (complete with crocodile motif) and takes sacrifices from a local village in the form of young men to satiate her lusty needs (which seem to be unquenchable). As of late the village has been slacking, so the queen calls upon a powerful warrior minion named Banyu Jaga (Bangun), who appears from exploding rocks, to disrupt a marriage ceremony for the village chieftain's daughter (Christina) by kidnapping the groom, which he does. Eventually this leads to another warrior getting involved, one named Mandala (Prima) as Mandala and Banyu Jaga both studied under the same master.

3.0 out of 5 stars Swords, Sandals, Crocodile Men, And Flying Woks February 20, 2007
"The Devil's Sword" is a tough movie to get your mind around: it's an Indonesian fantasy film inspired by Dungeons and Dragons featuring some of the worst production values ever. The film opens with a crazy old guy making a magical sword, and abruptly changes course to show us an underwater village in Indonesia where they are welcoming the "invisible queen" back from the briny depths. Through the spectacle of special effects (involving a towel dangling on a string by the looks of it) the queen becomes visible: she is revealed to be the "crocodile queen," and has decorated her abode accordingly. Please note the tasteful bed in the giant golden jaws of a crocodile, and the large gold crocodile statue ornamenting her personal fire pit. Around this time in the film the credits decide to show up, and continue to do so intermittently for about the next fifteen minutes. The music (by Gatot Soedarto) is an annoying 1980's electronic variety and plagues the film for the duration; likewise, please note that E. Muksin Hamzah edited the film. Perhaps someone could take away his scissors now; this is one of the choppiest, most ineptly presented films ever.

The premise of the film is that the queen has an insatiable desire for young men, so she sends for her evil minion and uber-warrior, Banyu Jaga (Advent Bangun) to capture a young groom from a wedding. Banyu Jaga interrupts the wedding to kidnap the groom, but, starting a trend, fighting breaks out. There is magic and sorcery to go along with a lot of leaping around, kung fu, and knifeplay.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wild fantasy adventure! June 11, 2006
Crocodile queens, Crocodile men, guillotine hats, one eyed monsters... This movie is truly out there. A non stop feat of fantastic visuals and over the top kung fu action. It stars the great Barry Prima too. One of the best fantasies out there and this gorgeous transfer from Mondo Macabro is truly eyepopping. Be sure to check out the Prima interview... very very strange!

Highly recommended

4.0 out of 5 stars FILM PHREAK SPEAKS! June 4, 2013
When Mondo Macabro declares that it trucks in "the wild side of world cinema," they're not exaggerating. That's more than marketing. Here's a release to prove it (you can add it to the list that includes "Queen of Black Magic" and "Mystics in Bali"). Capitalizing on the thankfully short-lived 80s sword and sorcery boom whose best film, arguably, is the still not very good "Conan the Barbarian", Indonesia turned out one of its takes on the genre in 1983. I'm happy to report that THE DEVIL'S SWORD is more entertaining by far than the American stuff hitting the screens at the time. Might not have been as "serious" a film but it's a lot more entertaining. THE DEVIL'S SWORD has as much to do with martial arts cinema as the fantasy genre, though the latter is far from ignored. There are tons of crazy fight scenes with improbably feats, decapitations and amputations, jumping around, sword-swinging - there's even a warrior crone who gets cut in half and decapitated and still manages to keep things together. But the villain of the piece is the Crocodile Queen whose cave domain is underwater apparently (though it suffers from none of the effects you'd expect being underwater and all), complete with a bed that, rather than being four poster, instead is nestled in the giant stone maw of a croc's mouth. There's also a croc statue slash killing mechanism over near the fire pool. This doesn't even begin to describe the wacky that wanders amok throughout the movie. THE DEVIL'S SWORD keeps sailing right along at a nice clip - no worries on pacing here - and throws weirdness after weirdness at you. Read more ›
