Red Sonja [based on stories by Robert E. Howard] returns to those olden days when women were women and the menfolk stood around with funny hats on until called forth to be whacked at.

Except, of course, for Arnold Schwarzenegger, whose Kalidor creation has just enough muscles to make him useful to the ladies, but not enough brains to make him a bother, except that he talks too much.

To her credit in the title role, Brigitte Nielsen never listens to a word he has to say, perhaps because he has an unfortunate tendency to address her as ‘Sony-uh.’ Nielsen wants to revenge her sister and find the magic talisman all on her own with no help from Kalidor, though she does think it’s kind of cute when he wades into 80 guys and wastes them in an effort to impress her.
