Red Sonja

Old school fantasy with deliciously cheesey acting from Brigitte Nielson and Arnie, coupled with a reasonably well conceived story and some great fight sequences all come together to form a mildly diverting action-fantasy film. Still as perplexing as ever that Arnie got top billing for a glorified cameo role, but still...good fun. Let down only by - even by back then's standards - ropey special effects and spotty production design.

I wonder what you'd make of Conan the Barbarian then; you can almost see the scenery move and quite why 'the voice of Darth Vader' was in it is still a mystery after all these years.
