    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.
    The evil…

    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…

    Bad dialogue, bad acting and a paper thin plot? Check! But entertaining regardless? Double Check!

    I was never bored with this thing and it pretty much is non-stop action the entire ride, and hardcore violence as well: I am stunned this got a PG-13 rating, when you see people being sliced open and heads chopped off.

    Don't be fooled by the poster, as Arnold is not even in this movie that much. I mean he moves the story forward in…

    Spectacularly silly sword and sorcery saga with a female lead (Brigitte Nielsen), from the director of Conan The Destroyer based on the pulp writings of Robert E Howard.
    I noticed Arnold Schwarzenegger on the cover for this and When he first appeared i though he was Conan but for some strange reason he plays a different character who just happens to look identical to Conan, in the Conan Universe. It has a terrible script and some awful acting, this is Brigitte Neilsen's first movie and boy does this show

    I can only assume Bridget Nielson was cast in Red Sonja to capitalise on the popularity of Conan the Barbarian. A female Conan could make the same money by appealing to the female market. That was the theory anyway. And also because her tenuous grasp of English matched that of her co-star Ahnolt. Red Sonja is Supergirl to Conan’s Superman. Matched with similarly weak villains and poor performances. The only difference is that in Red Sonja you also have Conan…

    It's as if a twelve year old boy was tasked with writing a movie that would end sexism the world over.

    Twelve year old boys are retarded. In an entertaining way.

    Sonja, played by Ivan Drago's twin/wife, must avenge the death of her parents by destroying a big glowing testicle, with the help of her new-found friends, THE most annoying kid ever, and his heavy set man servant, the bone wielding Falcon. I was half expecting Maverick and Ice man…
