Brigitte Nielsen is Red Sonja, the female warrior who will never submit to a man unless he can defeat her in combat.  While that might be a daunting task for amateur barbarians, Arnold Schwarzenegger was quoted as saying, "Yah, I could beat dat up."

Wow, can't believe you're just adding this one- it's a(n anti-) classic!  Two random thoughts:

Sandahl Bergman aquitted herself reasonably well in Conan.  Man, she should have quit when she was ahead.

I do in fact remember White Dwarf (we're talking failed Fox show here, right???)  Do I win a cookie??   Cheers

As children, my brother and I loved this movie.  We'd rent it a few times a year and spend the week after watching it pretending to sword fight in the back yard.  Good times...   Smile 

Of course, as an adult I'd probably laugh my head off watching it. 

This review really brings back memories.

Oh my...I paid to see this piece of crap, much to  my chagrin.  When I saw that Buddha-like statue that lookedlike it was taking the world's biggest dump I knew we were in trouble.

And I'm guessing the White Dwarf you refer to is the magazine of all things Games Workshop and Warhammer.  My Undead horde did defend the occasional bridge, but never one made from the bones of a rhino.

Red Sonja is one 80's film I never got around to seeing.
I saw it numerous times sitting on the shelves of several video shops, but for some reason I never got around to renting/watching it.  (even when it was shown on cable)
It just managed to slip through the cracks for me.

One of these days I'm going to have to rent it. 

Thanks for the great review!   Smile  Thumbup

I have played Warhammer, even still have my old Undead Army.  In this case, "White Dwarf" was a weird movie that was a strange cross of science fiction and western film.  It was a planet with half a world in darkness and half in light, people on horses, interstellar travel.  Weird movie; the whole thing really didn't work very well, but it is different.

I remember actually being excited to see this in the theater when it came out.  Of course I was also excited to see Timerider: The Adventure of Lyle Swann when that came out too...

Funny thing, as a tv addicted kid I watched the barbarian movies whenever they came on network broadcasting.

...boy do I remember the "let's fight but try not to hurt each other" sword battles. Cheers

I also recall my shock and awe when I saw Connan The Barbarian on HBO, thus I can't even RECALL this movie without my innocent memory being tainted by thoughts of all the missed opportunities for gratuitous nudity.

Seriously, though. Why hasn't this genre made a mainstream comeback yet?

It's one of those movies that has "failed pilot" written all over it.  Do you remember the other movie/series that aired around the same time that had aliens similar to those in this?  Been ages since I've seen either.

Do you know if WHITE DWARF ever get a video release?

I hope it's bad enough to be good, but I anticipate a pg-13 "so bad it goes past good and back to bad" waste of everyone's time.

Go ahead an check the prestigeous career of the screenwriter.
