Movie Reviews

See it for the mud-wrestling and dungeon scenes
05/18/1999
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Fans of the first "Barbarian Queen" film will enjoy this film, too, for the same reasons they liked the first film: Lana Clarkson half-naked on a rack being tortured by an evil guy. In the first film it was a small man wearing thick glasses torturing her with a small needle. In this film its her evil brother torturing her by lowering her onto a bed of spikes (she's not actually lowered, just taunted a bit).None of the characters from the first film are in the second film, and even Lana's character has a new name, so its not really a part of the first film's series but just some marketing trickery by the movie's salesmen. But it has Lana Clarkson in it and that's the real reason you'll want to watch this film.Lana plays the queen of a kingdom, but is overthrown by her evil brother and forced to flee into the woods where she defeats the leader of a band of women warriors (pretty good cat-fight mud wrestling scene in which Lana end up topless but victorious). She leads the band in an attack against the evil brother's castle, but she is defeated and thrown in the dungeon. Bound to an upright rack, the brother recites some evil dialogue, rips off her top, and recites some more evil dialogue. Then a girl enters the scene and states that she will enjoy torturing people when she becomes queen. Lana launches a retort and is then lowered over a bed of spikes by the evil brother. Now, this part of the scene is pretty hokey, because the girl and the brother are leaning into the scene to see Lana's face, and you can tell that Lana is just leaning into the scene as well and isn't really suspended from the table. Oh well.Anyway, the evil pair go off to dinner and Lana makes her escape (how she got out of the cuffs without falling into the spikes isn't explained) and tries to take a magic sceptre, the source of power in the kingdom. She's recaptured and thrown in the dungeon again, where the evil brother recites some more evil dialogue but doesn't really do anything. Still, I have to give credit to Lana for getting back up on the table again.Moving ahead in the plot, a good knight rescues Lana and together with the band of women warriors they successfully defeat the evil brother and free the kingdom.Best reason to get this film: Lana Clarkson's dungeon scenes, but feel free to fast-forward through the rest of the movie.If I were a movie producer, I'd see if I could get Lana to do a third "Barbarian Queen" film (if she's still got the body for it). The plot would be something like this: Lana is queen of the kingdom and has a sister (played by Elizabeth Kaitan (aka Elizabeth Cayton)of "Slave Girls From Beyond Infinity"). An evil queen, (played by Brinke Stevens, also of "Slave Girls From Beyond Infinity" and "Cyberzone") kidnaps the sister and throws her in the dungeon where she is tortured for information about the magic sceptre. Lana negotiates a deal for the release of the sister by surrendering herself to the evil queen. Lana is then thrown in the dungeon and tortured until the sister launches an attack on the castle and frees Lana. The evil queen is then thrown in the dungeon herself, so that the fourth movie (since my third movie idea is so successful they'd want to make a fourth) could be about the evil queen escaping and regaining her lost kingdom. Anyone with movie connections, feel free to take this idea and make it into a film. I'd be the first one in line at the video store!"
Lana Clarkson's dungeon scenes better than whole movie

(3 out of 5 stars)

"This is marketed as the sequel to "Barbarian Queen", which wasn't much of a movie to begin with other than Lana Clarkson (who plays the title character) being strapped to a rack and tortured with a needle by a little man who wears thick glasses (this whole scene is done much better than any other scene in the "BQ" movie). Oddly, none of the characters from the first film are in the second film, and even Lana Clarkson's character has a new name. I believe this second film was supposed to be a whole different series, but the financers figured they could cash in on the "Barbarian Queen" moniker and draw in more fans. Oh well.In short, Lana is overthrown as queen by her evil brother and is forced to flee into the woods, where she defeats the leader of a band of women warriors and becomes their leader (complete with cat-fighting mud-wrestling scene that ends with Lana topless but victorious). The women then attack the castle to free the people of the land, but they are defeated and Lana is thrown in the dungeon where the evil brother tries to get her to reveal the secrets of the magic sceptre (the source of power in the kingdom). This scene is as good as the dungeon scene in the first "Barbarian Queen" film, with Lana topless on a rack as her brother lowers her onto a bed of spikes. Seemed a bit ornate to me - why not just jab her with a single spike over and over until she talks? - and the end of the dungeon sequence is a bit hokey (you can tell that Lana is just leaning into the shot and is not really suspended from the table). But Lana does a pretty good job with what she's given.Anyway, when the evil brother goes off to dinner, Lana effects her escape from the dungeon and tries to steal the sceptre, where she's then captured again. Sentenced to death by torture, she's thrown back in the dungeon. This scene isn't as long as the first dungeon scene and the evil brother doesn't do anything but recite some evil verbage, but it's still nice to see Lana on the rack again.Ok, fast forward a bit here. A good knight decides to rescue Lana, and together with the band of women warriors they defeat the evil brother and save the land. Hooray.As you may have guessed, this is a film that doesn't require much intelligence, and you can follow enough of the plot by keeping your finger on the Fast-Forward button until you get to Lana's action scenes, which is the reason you'll want to watch this film in the first place.I also recommend you add to your library "Slave Girls From Beyond Infinity" which is better than the title would imply."
Great Movie

"Although this movie had nothing at all to do with Barbarian Queen 1 & Had horrible props { the swords were cheap plastic toys}I thought this movie was great!!! Bad props that's all that lacked. It would have been better If Rick Hill made an appearance in the movie But all in all awesome movie Even Joe Bob Briggs, gave it 4 stars AND SO Do I.....Better than the first in many ways,
a Must Buy"
I liked it.

"I give this movie not 5 stars but 5 tits for good rape scenes and I love the nudity and violence. All direct to video movies should be like this."
