There are the many unanswered questions teasing (or mocking!?!) the viewer within this classic retold:
1)who/what are those two hysterically laughing mutant dudes? Are they merely a whimsical afterthought to the plot to give the kids some cartoonish mayhem or a Fellini-esque effort to disorient the audience even further in this already baffling world? By the way, what happens to those guys? I think they just disappeared about halfway through the movie. But that's okay, they were really annoying.
2)Why is no one in the movie aware the Sorceress is NOT WEARING CLOTHES? These are some very loutish fellows, but there is an embarrasing lack of leering going on. It's like one of those dreams where you begin to realize something isn't quite right about being naked in public, except in this movie that point is never reached. I mean, by the end, she's even going into battle like that. I'm sure that put the fear into the other team.
3) What is that rat-like reptile? He "speaks" but no one seems concerned that his lips or whatever don't move! On the other hand, he doesn't look like he has much of a brainpan but he's giving advice to one of the head honchos. Maybe that's why they are in such a crappy situation. A failed life is really all about making bad decisions.
4)How does Luke Askew's cheiftan character ALWAYS have exact change?Read more ›
The special effects were kept to a minimum, almost to the point of non-existance, with most of the effort expended on sets and costumes for the lizardmen. The props were (admittedly) rudimentary with only one or two outstanding examples of swords.
The acting was ... patchy, I believe is the best word. It might be that under another director the actors would have delivered a more consistent performance. The fight choreography and stunt work, well let's say you can tell they are trying not to hurt each other, but on the other hand Maria Socas was a definite pleasure to ogle, and her acting about on a par with her cohorts.
All in all, for what it was and what they had to work with, this is definitely a cut above the rest.
My final rating: OK (Wow, OK, Eh, Sigh, Blech, Ach Ptooey).
some of his A-, or B movies, if you will,
is one of my favorite actors. He can play
anything from millionaire buckskit, Jerry
Spence-type lawyers in Out Of The Wilderness
to these type roles. Remember, during this
period, Ahnuld Schwarzenegger was 'tearin'
it up with movies like Conan (Barbarian &
Destroyer) and Red Sonja (really, that one
sucked pretty bad...), so along came the
Roger Corman, American Independent to make
this midievil type Warrior movie in Peru
(where he would film 'Crime Zone (***) in
'88). Swashbuckling Carradine got into a
bar fight (in his autobiography he said
EVERYBODY THERE WANTED TO FIGHT HIM! Too
many Kung Fu (***.5) flashbacks?!). Since
he broke his right (lead) hand, he had to
film this movie fighting left-handed! The
fight scenes were compliated and spliced
into the 1989 A.I. film 'Wizards of the
Lost Kingdom II (***)', with Bobby Jacoby
and Mel Welles. This was a better movie
than the 1985 original, with Bo Svenson,
'Wizards of the Lost Kingdom (**)'. In
'89's W.O.T.L.K.II, Carradine reprises
his 'Dark One'/Kaine' role from this film.
Others notable things in Carradine / Ameri-
can Indy films in this period; In an almost
sequel to his '88 film 'Warlords (***)', in
'91 he did another film with Luke Askew cal-
led 'Dune Warriors (*)', which is pretty bad.
Oh, I would be less than a man if I didn't
mention that lovely spanish actress, Maria
Socas played the entire movie, here, topless.
Needless to say, 'Warrior and the Sorceress'
was a video rental hit. - R.A.S
