Ok, Aurion and Hofrax are tied up anew, sat atop a pair of horses, and sent back to the castle as a warning to Ankaris to stop the oppression. Man, I will say that they do give you a lot of eye-candy in this film.
I mean the Kingdom of Ankaris. They just show up in the town square as casual as ever. Hofrax demands that the rebels drop their weapons and surrender. Vargas in Fast Times at Ridgemont High 1982. Some flames shoot out from the base of the pedestal so we can just assume that he is aflame.
Ankaris finally gets fed up and orders Athalia to be publicly executed the next day. Aurion swallows his pride, smiles and agrees to the plan. This is really taking too long. Floating above a dais in the center of the room is the much vaunted Scepter of Power, or whatever the hell they call it. Anyway, this time the film crew covered the dirt road in a thin layer of hay in order to hide the tire tracks in the soil, so that was a nice touch. A ridiculous battle breaks out complete with crappy sword fights, rubber arrows, terribly timed punches, and everything that could possibly go wrong in a sword-fight sequence.
I hate hate hate hate this crap! After a couple of shoves, a full-out fist-fight breaks out between Athalia and Erigena. Ankaris is a wimp and loves to chew the scenery whenever he gets the chance. Well, the whole stupid thing is simply a trap to lure Athalia into the castle so she can be captured…so she can be tortured and show her breasts some more…so she can escape…so she can win in the end. If this film were being made today, the amazons would be covered much more thoroughly and Ms. Do you hate these names yet? Anyway, the rebels flee the castle but due to the lame script, Athalia is finally overcome and taken prisoner again. I really love catching screw-ups like that. After that touching scene, the two love birds return to the village square to see that the villagers have humiliated Hofrax by stripping him down to his underwear.
Don't watch this for an example of great cinema, watch it for young lovelies on display. This dude is so inept, you really have to wonder how in the hell he reached such a powerful position in the castle pecking order. These arrows then bend when the victims fall to the ground. When the people believe in someone enough to trust their lives to them. Oh gee, Hofrax is captured as well.
In a climatic battle at the end of the film, Athalia leads her band of rag-tag rebels into battle against the numbskull Hofrax and his Legion of Idiot Guards. Lana Clarkson is more than up to the task of providing the bouncing boobies frequently throughout the movie. Her first role was as Mrs. Self flagellation is alive and well around these here parts.

Moving right along, the trap is sprung as Hofrax enters the chamber with a couple of guards. Moving right along, we go back to the rebel camp. So, if I may ask. Apparently nuns in this region dress up in light-blue bed-sheets with pointy hoods…sort of like powder-puff blue Clan members.
I also noticed that the floor of the throne room is tan linoleum. And the point of this scene was…? Set during the days of the Roman Empire. There's plenty of violence and nudity in this second Barbarian Queen fiesta. Oh dear oh dear oh dear. A simple village is raided by Roman troops, and most of the people are whisked off to be slaves or killed.
Anyhoo, Hofrax imprisons Athalia in a dungeon and straps her to a rack. To top it all off, Athalia steals a horse and rides out the front gate… right past 2 more guards who just stand and watch! Anyway, the rebel rescue squad manages to sneak into the dungeon and release Athalia. If it sounds like I miss those days, I do. And who does their hair?
