After suffering at the hands of Queen Gedren (Sandahl Bergman), warrior Red Sonja (Brigitte Nielsen) seeks vengeance. When the queen seizes a talisman that yields immense power, Sonja sets out to thwart her. On her journey, Sonja is aided by the mysterious Kalidor (Arnold Schwarzenegger), and meets the 12-year-old Prince Tarn (Eddie Reyes, Jr.) and his bodyguard, Falkon (Paul Smith). After many trials, the quartet arrives in the Land of Perpetual Night where they confront Queen Gedren in her stronghold.
I thought Red Sonja was a decent movie. I remember watching this movie, when I was a kid and it brought back some good memories, after watching it again. If you enjoy movies such as Conan The Barbarian, or basically any movie with sword fighting, then you will enjoy this one, as well. There are a lot of action scenes, in this movie, too.
As for the actors, I have nothing bad to say about how they played their character roles. I thought everyone did a great job, in this movie. There were a few funny segments with Arnold Schwarzenegger, as well, but they were meant to be serious. As for Brigitte Nielsen, I thought she fit the role of Red Sonja and played her character very well.
If you haven’t seen this movie, it’s definitely worth the watch, at least once.
