    This is pretty much Conan pt III. Red Sonja is definitely a guilty pleasure for me considering I got mad love for the 80s fantasy genre, but it's probably not something I would recommend to anyone who doesn't share my love for such films.

    Red Sonja (Brigitte Nielsen) and Kalidor (Arnold Schwarzeneggar) lead a ragtag outfit of infiltrators to stop the evil Queen Gedrin (Sandahl Bergman) from taking control of a talisman of immense power, and to avenge the murder of Sonja's family.

    If you're just looking for some good sword-slinging action reminiscent of Conan, you won't be disappointed in this. We know what Arnold and Bergman are capable of from Conan the Barbarian, but the real surprise is Brigitte Nielsen who looks surprisingly…

    Lots of bad acting by Bridgette Nielsen and Arnold Schwarzenegger and the very annoying little Prince Tarn make this a tough movie to watch. The sets are interesting and the costumes are well done but the story is slight and the action scenes are nearly action less. This feels like a cheap "Conan" movie series rip-off and that's because it is.

    This Dutch-American sword and sorcery action film is by Richard Fleischer and stars newcomer Brigitte Nielsen alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sandahl Bergman and Ronald Lacey. This can also be seen as one of the first comic book movie adaptations, decades before ‘The Avengers’ brought Marvel to the big time, as Red Sonja was a character in the Marvel comics.

    Red Sonja (Nielsen) is granted mystical strength to take revenge against evil Queen Gedren (Bergman) who murders Sonja’s family after she rejects…

    I know I should say this is a terrible film but I won't. Actually I enjoyed it pretty much. Of course, the plot is boring as hell and almost every scene is totally predictable but still this is one of very few fantasy movies with a strong woman warrior as a main character. This alone makes this an important movie in its genre. Also Schwarzenegger and Nielsen have a pretty good dynamic on screen and the sword fighting is not…

    Tillräckligt mycket svärdsvingande för att det inte ska bli tråkigt, men fru Nielsen är otroligt träig... Och den där förbannade småprinsen...

    La pel·lícula en sí és regular, però la idea que hi ha darrera de Red Sonja és tant perversa com fantàstica. La contraposició femenina de Conan no és una dona guerrera sinó una feminista que emprèn la lluita, bàsicament, contra tota mostra de virilitat. El subtext està escrit en Majúscules i els matisos, com ha de ser, borrats totalment del guió. És curiós veure un Arnold totalment domesticat, conformat amb un flirteig a base d'hòsties; veure l'acte sexual representat per…

    I've heard myths and legends about the hilarity of this movie... they were all true!
    An evil queen steals some green ball from another queen and Red Sonja has to destroy the ball in a few days otherwise it will destroy the world. It's up to you to make sense of that.
    Star of this film is undeniably Brigitte Nielsen's red mullet wig, I just couldn't take my eyes of it. It's the ginger mother of all mullets.

    Considerably B but remains one of the better fantasy adventure films of the 80s (and there's a lot of them). It's nice to see Brigitte Nielson before her Vh1 reality TV days. And man was she a looker! I could look at her all day! Her, Arnold of course and some well choreographed sword fighting are reasons to watch Red Sonja. Plus there's a solid minimal score at work here (I liked it best when there was no music) and…

    RED SONJA is one of those films that really should have been better than what was presented to its audience considering the source material that could have been used. I understand certain names couldn't be used due to studio interference, but it's no excuse to churn out a film that's so silly and ridiculous when everyone is playing it up so seriously. And that's partly why RED SONJA fails - it tries to be as epic as CONAN OF BARBARIAN…
