3.0 out of 5 stars So bad, as they say ... Oct. 22 2008
By C.B.
Format:DVD
I'm a sucker for these trashy, old-school Sword and Sorcery epics, and if you are, Hundra won't disappoint. I didn't catch Hundra "back in the day", as with Conan, Deathstalker, etc., I just had a hankering for an '80s barbarian opus, and this is what I wound up with. Nearly everything about this movie is, on a technical level, terrible (dear god, the sound effects), but through it all, it has a certain spirit that kept me smiling throughout.

Immediately after watching it, I sat through it again, this time with the commentary, which is easily as funny as the film itself.

In a sense, there's no point writing a review for movies of this type - you already know if you like 'em not. So, if cheap battle sequences, exploitative nudity, and a cast of horrific over-and-underacting Z-list actors are your thing, then there's plenty to amuse you here ... plus maybe just a little added spunkiness.

I kind of wish they still made this stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars HOT HUNDRA! Aug. 8 2003
By Fred Szebin - Published on Amazon.com
This feminist version of Conan the Barbarian from the 80s got lost in the shuffle when the director, who had a distribution agreement with Universal, went behind the studio's back to see if he could get a better deal. He should have just taken Big U's deal so people could get to see this cool movie. Laurene Landon is hot as the title character out to avenge the pillaging of her tribe. Does her own stunts and swordplay. Landon is a terribly overlooked action actress. Maybe this dvd release of one of her best films will give audiences a chance to see her shine. What we need now is a dvd release of her follow-up, the serial tribute Yellowhair and the Fortress of Gold. Here's to a Laurene Landon revival!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Honeybee "Hundra" with Quite a Sting +++ Aug. 20 2009
By Kevin Kiersky - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I chose this movie DVD, along with another one starring Laurene Landon ["Yellow Hair"], when in quite an odd mood -- "wanting to see something like Conan/Red Sonya" -- but feeling that those were too well known to me -- familiarity having bred my contempt. I had seen some large unknown portion of the Conan/Red Sonya movie-series in a small cinema [during a mini-marathon of the Conan/Red Sonya shows]. I was there, while with "buzzed" friends having a good time [until then], at a Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Gaming Convention. We all walked-out, after some long while, in amused but heavy disgust, to another mini-marathon cinema room.

I had read somewhere online [some martial arts blog] about Laurene Landon being interesting -- very lovely, strong and athletic -- insisting on doing her own stunts and martial arts -- hand-to-hand, sword-to-sword or bow-and-arrows. I have a "soft-spot" for a "hard-case" like Laurene Landon. Well, to my happy surprise, Laurene Landon indeed is lovely, strong and athletic via her cool action stunts with skillful grace. Why, she is as "bad" [or for real] as Jackie Chan -- dancing around on cliffs and roofs -- and jumping out into space, into water, onto horses, or just onto dangerous ground. She seems to like whips, ropes, kicks, punches, head-butts and throws as much as Jackie Chan too. And, she obviously has as much happy fun during her dialog and action. This all goes for both "Hundra" and "Yellow Hair" -- and some other work of Laurene Landon.

As for "Hundra" in particular -- it really is like very-well-done Conan/Red Sonya sword-and-sorcery. Which is not too surprising -- as "Red Sonya" is stated by both producers to be an attempt to upstage "Hundra". "Hundra" was made just after "Conan" using similar settings and much of the same production material [clothes, items and props]. I feel that "Hundra" is uniquely fine-and-fun -- indeed upstaging other movies in its genre -- including "Red Sonya". Why "Hundra" [her and the whole show] even stays very interesting, colorful and fun -- with great grand scenery and music -- while a "new-balance" of diversity, equality, and especially feminism, is "worked-on" and "worked-out". So gals and guys can easily enjoy this Sword-and-Sorcery. Mean Macho Men-aces BEWARE -- "Hundra" gonna collect yo' hair -- and have FUN too +++

4.0 out of 5 stars Deserves to be better known Jan. 28 2009
By E E Knight - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
In a decade filled with forgettable sword and sorcery epics, Hundra ranks near the top, in my opinion. There's convincing action, especially from the beautiful and athletic Laurene Landon, decent widescreen cinematography, a serviceable score, and a story paced mostly at the gallop. It's appropriately bloody and there's an element of cheeze, yes, especially around the John Norman-inspired Bull Cult, but it's one of the few S&S epics to hold not only my own but my wife's interest. Even the dog "Beast" has a story arc. I'm taking one star away because the battle scene at the end, though satisfying, didn't quite live up to the spectacle and creativity of the raid at the beginning, but I understand from the commentary they were shooting in sequence and ran low on money.

Give this one a try. If you're open minded and like swordplay and Errol Flynn-style derring-do, I think you'll be pleased.

2.0 out of 5 stars Thunda in the Tundra with Hundra July 28 2007
By Mike Boas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Hundra has great locations and production value (leftovers from the previous year's Conan the Barbarian), plus a score by Ennio Morricone. The story, the acting, and (most unfortunately) the action are less than stellar. It's essentially a women's lib Barbarian epic. Hundra is a woman without a people -- her Amazonian tribe gets wiped out in a scene swiped from Conan -- so she goes on a quest to find a man. That's right, she'll repopulate her people one female baby at a time. Along the way, she learns that most men are pigs, but occasionally they can be sensitive and good-hearted... how sweet. After picking up make-up tips from a slave/priestess, she returns the favor by passing on some fight moves. Really, though, Hundra's fight scenes lack punch. There's no technique to the brawling, and this lack of precision ultimately hurts the film. The new Subversive Cinema DVD has a documentary, "Hunting Hundra," a commentary, a new comic book (!), and a bonus soundtrack disc. The operatic music is Morricone's repurposing of works by Verde, and it suits the swordplay genre perfectly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hundra, the ancestor of "Red Sonia" July 16 2007
By Uspud2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This film, with a slaugther of warrior women at the beginning and an other (smallest) at the end, can be comparate to the scenario of 1985 "red Sonia" with Birgit Nielssen in place of Laureen Landon. An other comparative point: the awfully hyper noisy music in "under-ride of the Walkyries" manner by Ennio Morricone !!!
