Excerpt: Red Sonja, the offshoot of the Conan films which in particular this film was intended to be. The Sonja character lives in the same universe as Conan and Arnold essentially signed on to do a few cameo's as Conan but his role got extended to make him more or less the co-lead but the studio didn't have...
Excerpt: I'm a fan of Conan the Barbarian and Conan the Destroyer and i thought that Red Sonja was as good as i remembered it watching it on VHS back in the 90's but of course i was quite dissapointed.
Excerpt: Movie: I bought this film in three pack with Red Heat and Total Recall for a good price. Compare to the Conan, its disaster. Actors (not counting Arnold and Brigitte) are bad, story is supid. Most of the movie is boring interrupted with action scene with sword massacre - one positive fact.
Summary: This is Saturday afternoon fodder, and it is great fun. Brigitte Nielsen plays Red Sonja a little as though she is reading her lines off hidden cue cards, in fact the entire cast appears to have received the script on the day they began shooting, but this is still great comic book stuff all the...
Summary: It's been ages since I've seen this film, and it holds about as much interest for me as when I first saw it. It's entertaining on a certain level, and holds some interest. Some minor notes before progressing with my comments; Kalidor in reality is Conan's alternate name.
Summary: Personally this is one of my all time favorite movies since I was very young. That being said I had not seen this movie in over a decade before seeing it on the shelf at the grocery store where I purchased it.
Summary: OK, I know I'm going to either get a lot of hate for this and a lot of confused emails, but Red Sonja to me is an ultimate guilty pleasure. My sister and I used to watch this movie all the time when we were kids, we both wanted to so badly fight with Red Sonja and be apart of the group.
Summary: This is a wonderfully moral sword and sorcery epic. Arnold Schwarzenegger portrays a heroic man of high character unlike the amoral Conan. His portrayal of Kalidor is understated and that makes it WORK. Brigitte Nielsen while a raw talent, still manages to put this film over.
Summary: Quote of the movie: "so it is true, only women may touch it" What was good: The Soundtrack was really good thanks to genus, Ennio Morricone. Red Sonja looked really good in that little cloth piece she wore throughout the movie. There is more red hair in this film than a shedding Irish Setter.
