First there was Yojimbo, then came Fistful of Dollars, and finally The Warrior and the Sorceress! The damsel in distress, the two warring factions in town, the old man befriending the hero, and the hero playing the two sides against each other for greedy profit; you know the story. However, W&S takes us much further...
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?

The Warrior and the Sorceress managed to adapt the story from Korosawa's YOJIMBO to fair effect, giving this movie's plot far more originality and coherence than most of New Concorde's Sword and Sorcery efforts from the '80's. The villains are more intelligent than most of their ilk, but it is the hero who proves to be the one-eyed man in the Kingdom of the Blind, as he proceeds to prod the badguys to self-destruction. Of course we have the full run of scantily clad ladies cavorting about (this is to be expected), as well as the obligatory epic battle at the end (which is par for the course), but hey this is a B-Movie Sword & Sorcery epic, you need these things in it.
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).

In 1984, David Carradine starred in "The Warrior and the Sorceress." He shouldn't have. In the TV series "Kung Fu" we all had an appreciation for David Carradine. It ended there, for those who have watched this movie. You watch this movie because Maria Socas shows her upper self as the captive sorceress, because Cecilia Narova has two pair, and because Liliana Cameroni skinny dips. Eva Adanaylo shares a little too, and that's as good as this movie is going to get. David Carradine sword fights and generally elbows his way through 3 different armies single-handedly killing a hundred trained warrior swordsmen or so. Luke Askew does a fair job of portraying an idiot tyrant Zeg, and Guillermo Marin is a perfect slob of a weenie tyrant Bal Caz who should have had Jim Henson help him with his lizard pet/familiar. Anthony De Longis is the previously most feared (before David Carradine) swordsman captain of the guard, and the only part of this film women will enjoy. The acting is worse than B-movie here, the special effects barely exist, and the fighting is as believable as when somebody says they owe you a favor, or they'll meet you halfway. The film was made in Argentina and A.K.A. "Kain del planeta oscura." I'm not necessarily looking for a documentary on owls, but this film needed more hooters. Definitely not a family film, and probably isn't going to work well as a "date" film. Surely David Carradine regrets being in this film. Having said that, I'm going to watch it again; not for the action, but because of the scenery.

Argentinian actress Maria Socas carries this film. We've seen the storyline before in "Yojimbo" and "A Fistful of Dollars" but now with a sword-and-sandal Fantasy twist where a sorceress is held as a hostage instead of a main characters' wife. And oh what a hostage she makes! Maria Socas is a beautiful woman and her beauty is on full display in this film. Her costuming is straight out of a Frazetta painting, with all the powerful eroticism retained. The supporting characters are so-so but the actors are obviously doing what they can with them. Carradine seems almost bored (or stoned) and the fight scenes are generally weak. Still, we have Maria Socas unashamed of her feminimity, and that counts for a lot in this genre. This film could have been so much more had there been greater peril to the damsel; such as a torture scene or two where Carradine has to come to her rescue. As it is, even the "horror" of a girl drowning for the evil king's entertainment is only done so-so, and Carradine doesn't lift a finger to save her, or really seem to care one way or another. Not exactly hero material, but then he's supposed to be the self-centered type out for his own riches and not a true do-gooder... until he finds the Sorceress in her jail cell. Alone. Helpless. Looking for her hero. That's when the tide turns.

This particular copy is one of the better ones out there but still suffers from "aging" in terms of clarity and color-fastness. Still, it's not hard to watch and makes for good escapism when you don't want to think too hard.
