I remember when this movie got a regular run on either HBO or Showtime during the classic days of '80s cable movies. Even back then, I was appalled at the sad acting by every single actor in this silly movie. I hate to sound like a douche, but the broken-English accents of both Bridgette Nielsen and Arnold Schwarzenegger, while endearing as to their acting limits in other movies, really is a detriment in this movie. Most especially Bridgette Nielsen, who sounds like she just stepped off the plane from Denmark and got into the wrong line mistaking "Red Sonja Auditions" for "US Citizenship and Immigration Services".

I agree with the review that some of the set pieces are surprisingly well done for an '80s barbarian movie. The costumes aren't too bad either, and I found the metal water beast to be rather impressive-looking for an '80s machine prop. Jaws didn't even look as cool as this thing did!

It's too bad that Sandahl Bergman's movie career basically took a dump on her after this film, though she did have an entertaining minor role in Stewardess School (1986). In the end, we must blame the scriptwriter for this bad movie, as it had the potential to be better than it was, but was hampered by some very wooden dialogue. The comic book adaptation wasn't much better, but something tells me that the movie would have been better off with just copying the comic book dialogue word-for-word.

    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.
