Tawny Kitaen stumbles upon a secret kingdom of female warriors who wear leather thong bikinis.  She even winds up wearing such an outfit herself, which ensures this film a spot on the list of mandatory male fantasies (right under jello wrestling coeds).

I've seen this on VHS in cut form.

I've been meaning to check out the fairly recently released uncut DVD of it.

Tawny Kitaen, while a nut ball now, was probably one of the top male fantasties in the 80's, if not in the top spot.

Well, you haven't missed all that much. Very disappointing movie. And to think that Just Jaeckin made this ten years after Emannuelle!

I bought the DVD version when it finally came out, I had fond memories of watching the VHS version in the 1980s.  For some reason, I never realized just how bad the characters talk and emote (I hesitate in even calling it "acting").

Still, topless Tawny Kitaen.  yummmmmmm  Twirling Twirling

Raj, I have the same experience. Just goes to show what you can go through if the hormonal drive is strong enough.

Well, if you saw it on late-night television, as I did, you would have seen two women, who were naked from the waist down, catfighting. That is not a scene to be missed.

And those goldfish, they sound like Texas goldfish, as the world's largest goldfish, was caught here in Texas.

And the movie, it was based on a comic strip.

I actually like this movie, it's like a soft core version of Romancing the Stone or any of those other 80's adventure films, all of which where riding on Raider's shirt tails.

It's stupid, poorly made, corny dialog and bad acting ... and 20 years later we're still watching it and talking about it ... it wasn't that bad.

I'd give it at least, the very least 3 slimes.

Yes, it was all that, but the visuals were stunning.

Is it just me, or is his name strangely appropriate for a maker of movies that titillated adolescent boys?

That chariot chase left my jaw agape. May be one of the damnedest things I've ever seen.

Ya know, I always felt like there was something missing from the chariot race scene in "Ben Hur", but I could never quite put my finger on it.. thanks to this movie, I think I've finally figured it out!  TeddyR  Superb, just superb!

Hi there, first time reviewer long time reader (jeez)

This film has to be the most bizarre film I have ever  seen. Even more so than the Story of Riki.

Loads and loads Lilian's on display (which is great) but the acting is terrible.
Having said that I still thought it was a great piece of cinema. Probably the most important movie to come out of America during the 80's (and that includes ALL of Arnold's great films)

Fav scenes include:
The crocodile roaring and says ow
Load of Lilian's on show
The 'love making' scene in the bamboo cage
The bit in the jungle where Willard get's Gwendoline proper hot and sh!t only to tell her to stand up straight

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
