Ousted teen prince, now mature warrior and general, Talon (Horsley), returns to his homeland intending to take back the kingdom that was stolen from him in the film's prologue. He rescues spirited heroine, Alana (Beller), but then has to fight powerful enemies Cromwell (Lynch) and demon sorcerer Xusia (Moll). The B-list of supporting players includes MacCorkindale (from the final Quatermass TV serial), George Maharis, Robert Tessier, Nina Van Pallandt (who appeared in several Robert Altman films), and Joe Regalbuto.
There's a gruelling escape from crucifixion performed by heroic Talon, that's rare even for this sort of by-his-bootstraps adventure, and the final grand battle between freed prisoners and castle guards during the villain's wedding banquet is appealingly crazy - despite failing to be quite as exciting as it should have been.
DVD extras: nothing much. Just two Dolby sound options, two trailers and a TV spot.
