This is the funniest movie! It's like Army of Darkness, on a shoestring. Unlike the brutal, tasteless original Deathstalker, this crew plays for laughs--mostly at themselves. Don't miss the commentary track!

"Deathstalker II RULES!!!!
It's the best low-budget, comedy, fantasy T&A filled epic EVER.
But enough about the film, we all know that's great, onto the DVD.
The picture quality is fine, although it's best to turn the brightness up on your tv as it's quite dark(this isn't the DVD's fault I have a brighter VHS version but it just seems faded).
This is not cropped so you get to see the full picture, cars and spare tires too.
Audio, addiquate, gotta love that deathstalker II theme.
Extras:The audio commentary is informative and funny, you really think this movie was fun to make, it has a trailer to.
It would have been nice if this had had a multistream option like the T2 disc. So you could choose between the normal version and the Director's Cut. What this would mean is that the disc would skip the clips of DS1 and Barbarian Queen and the extra long fight footage to make it a more concise viewing experience. Although not having this option isn't worth dropping a star as you still get to see everything but have to skip the bits yourself. More out-takes would have been nice, but I guess you'll have to live with the ones in the credits."

"One of the best of the 80's sword and scorcery movies, Deathstalker 2 still rules. It has everything: swordfights, an evil sorceror (is there any other kind?), swashbuckling action, semi-clad beauties and a tongue-in-cheek sense of humor that ties it all together.For DS2 fans who have the VHS version and are wondering if the DVD version is worth buying: Yes! This version includes a feature-length audio commentary by director Jim Wynorski, Toni Naples (Sultana), and John Terlesky (Deathstalker himself) for behind-the-scenes information you didn't even know you wanted to know....S&S B-movie fans in general and Deathstalker 2 fans in particular will want this movie."
Deathstalker too? Yes, and Monique times 2

"This is my favorite of Monique's films (that I've seen) and I believe it is her personal favorite too. Filmed in Argentina which must have caused problems, the stark scenery is made up for by the large number of wisecracks in this sword and sorcery romp. Monique for once gets the chance to prove that she's more than just a sexy body, although there is a bit of that on view to keep her adoring fans happy. You also get two Moniques for the price of one here, which can't be bad. One is a petulant pouting prima donna of a princess (I bet she enjoyed playing that role!)- the other a chirpy perky peasant girl dashing about in skimpy buckskins. (That alone should be at least worth the cost of a rental!) The hero is suitably brawn without too many brains, as heros often are in these things. This could explain why he seems imune to Monique's charms - although in the end - well, if you haven't seen it I'd better let you find out for yourselves! There is a blooper section at the end and a catchy little theme tune which gets a gag during the film. There are plenty of quirky characters to keep fans of this genre engaged along the way."
Deathstalker 2 DVD

"Simply a great DVD. This is personally my favorite movie in the Deathstalker series. It's worth it just for the excellent full-length commentary. The picture and sound transfer are very clear and sharp. There are also some added scenes, lost scenes and extended scenes not in the VHS versions. The movie length now clocks in at around 88 minutes in length."
Sure it's cheesy, but it's deliberate...

"Yeah, this is a sequel with nothing to do with the first one, and yeah, it's no Conan, but it doesn't try to be. Just remember who the writer/director is (the esteemed Jim Wynorski), take your mind off the hook, and go with it!
The premise (soldier of fortune helps a princess in disguise regain the throne)is classic, but it's all told with such a goofy tone that comparison with a more serious film is, well, goofy.
If you have the DVD edition with the director's commentary, you'll see where Wynorski was going when he made the film. The script is full of in-jokes from other movies in the genre, jokes from television, and more than enough one liners to fill a dozen old Bob Hope movies. You also get John LaZar (from Beyond the Valley Of The Dolls) as the evil sorcerer, Monique Gabrielle (of a zillion b-movies) as the damsel in distress, and Toni Naples in black leather as Sultana, who swings a mean sword.
Add to that a gazillion extras (all masked so they can be used over and over in other scenes), lots of wooden swords painted silver, a fight to the death with Queen Kong (featuring Amazon ring girls holding up the round number painted on cardboard). Yep friends and neighbors, this one leaves no cliché unheard. Do I recommend it? Wholeheartedly. Genre fans won't be disappointed.
