Review

Our Score
Brigitte Nielsen (the ex-Mrs Sylvester Stallone) stars here in the biggest role of her career to date as Red Sonja - a leather-bikini-clad warrior who aims to avenge the death of her family by confronting wicked queen Sandahl Bergman. But it is Arnold Schwarzenegger who is the real star here, showing off his bulging biceps and trying to retain his dignity in a loincloth as the grunting hero who helps her. Based on a story by Robert E Howard (who also wrote the Conan tales), this is a sword-and-sorcery adventure for those who like their action fast and furious, their dialogue ropey and their acting filled with more ham than a butcher's shop.

Summary

A female warrior resolves to stop an evil queen unleashing the destructive power of a magical orb that controls the elements, and make the malevolent monarch pay for murdering her family. Fantasy adventure, starring Brigitte Nielsen, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sandahl Bergman, Ronald Lacey and Pat Roach. Including FYI Daily.
