Red Sonja – January 11, 2018

Runtime: 89 minutes
Director: Richard Fleischer
Starring: Brigette Nielsen, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sandahl Bergman
MPAA Rating: PG-13
Final Score: 7.5/10

“Danger is my trade,” powerfully built Kalidor proclaims. Based on all his sword-clanging efforts to recover a glowing orb whose magic imperils the world, it’s plain his trade is in demand and thriving.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, who muscled his way into screen action lore as Conan the Barbarian and Conan the Destroyer, returns to the sword-and-sorcery realm as Kalidor in Red Sonja, based on stories by Conan creator Robert E. Howard. Brigette Nielsen is flame-haired heroine Sonja, leading a glorious quest in a mystical land where fortress walls have faces, dinosaur bones form a bridge, a lethal mechanical serpent writhes, swarming minions follow a vile queen… and where heroes lay claim to legend.
