Don't overthink this movie. Its a mediocre film, with just enough production value to make you go--at least they tried. Beyond that-the TPM (TTs per minute!) is pretty spot-on. Honestly feminists should enjoy this movie as the women take the lead and save the day. Can't argue against that ladies. Lana Clarkson leads this cast of Playboy-looking models, and none of them disappoint. This was the kind of movie you rented on VHS tape back in the day when you knew your parents were gonna be out of town. Story has been told a thousand times, so you don't have to wonder whats going to happen...just enjoy the scenery.

Enjoyable sleaze
Verified purchase
I first thought it was the typical 1970's sword/sandal/bare breasts movie, but see it was done much later. It still is a mindless romp with a threadbare plot that has been done countless times before. That said, it was fun to watch, and a bit more nudity than I expected, but nothing explicit, as I did expect. Some attractive actors so visually it was fun to watch. A forgettable movie, but not a waste of time to watch.

Silly and fun, but no Romans
Verified purchase
It's a silly, fun 80's T&A movie. Lots of fun with the late Lana Clarkson and the adorable Dawn Dunlap. You don't watch a movie like this for great acting, great scripts or intricate plots, but the description is just wrong. This doesn't take place in Rome, it's some pipsqueak kingdom that a Roman Legion could have taken before lunch, with plenty of time for a wine break.

In Argentina during 1985, Aires Cinematografica Argentina and Rodeo Products released a 71 minute romp of T & A called "Barbarian Queen" with Lana Clarkson, Katt Shea, Dawn Dunlap, Susana Traverso, Andrea Barbieri, Andrea Scriven, Matilde Mur, and Lucy Tiller. I imagine a few women would enjoy Frank Zagarino in this film, also. But predominantly, it isn't the sword fighting, it isn't the sets, and it isn't the thespian skills that kept me watching. The language for the film is English, but that isn't important for this genre. The story is a raid on a village where survivors are made into slaves, and ultimately back at the castle those slaves and other slaves unite in overthrowing the warlord. There's raping and pillaging, and some hut burning too. Lana Clarkson has appeared in many TV hits of the 1970's and 1980's, as well as her fair share of movies. I like her best in this R-rated film for obvious reasons, as the "Barbarian Queen." Some of the gore and some of the exploitation has been edited, but there's enough here to be worth having.

Pretty racy stuff

Pretty racy stuff, but the production values were higher than one usually sees for this kind of topless babes in animal skins kind of movie. Big hair too!

"Bondage Scene" NOT COMPLETE!
Verified purchase
I just got my copy of the DVD R-Rated version and yes the best parts of the bondage scene are missing. Why those edit happy bozos would remove the lower body scenes showing the actresses powerful legs around her captor and leave the breasts showing is beyond me. Since this scene is most appealing in the way the Original version first displayed it in 85, to take it out in my opinion degrades the movie entirely. I was completely dissapointed in this version of the movie. If anyone saw the unrated 1985 Vhs version you would know what I mean. Lana was the movie. Why remove it????? I have [not a] clue!!! Unsatisfied customer.
