(7-Very Good Film)
Entertaining. Vivid. Cool.
Adult animated fantasy in the vein of a lot of other great cheesy ’80s epics like Conan the Barbarian (1982), Excalibur (1981), and The Beastmaster (1982). The story is barebones. Two kingdoms-one of fire and one of ice-duke it out for supremacy; fire kingdom is content to live in harmony but ice wants everything. A stray warrior, a princess from the fire kingdom, and a mysterious man known as Darkwolf battle to stop the evil ice lord from taking over the land. This film has some truly spectacular animated sequences and action scenes.
