This movie is more boring than painful, but it is bad just the same. I bought it after reading the divergence of opinions here and found it to be mostly boring and mostly bad, with occasional points of light. Well, two points of light anyway. The first point of light: David Carradine plays a character named 'Kain', which is an obvious in-joke from his "Kung Fu" days when he played a character named 'Kane'. I don't know why this amused me so much, but I found that pretty funny for some reason. The second (and larger) point of light is Luke Askew as 'Zeg' in what is clearly the best performance in the movie. Askew is actually a very good actor, although he appeared in this and three other movies with David Carradine (including "Kung Fu: The Legend Continues") and even once on "Knight Rider"! He is, of course, better known for his excellent characterizations in "Cool Hand Luke" and "Easy Rider". Here he is a beacon of light. His performance isn't one of the best in his career, but it certainly beats the other performances seen here.
Frankly, I am a fan of all genres of B-grade films, but the mystical films are not one of my favorite subsets of cheese. This one basically pits Kain, the 'Dark One', against everyone. He is a mercenary for hire to the highest bidder (although the trailer says it is the ultimate fight between good and evil): Carradine spends most of the film switching allegiances based on pecuniary considerations. It is tough to keep up with which side he's on at times, but in the end, inspired by the sorceress he sides with the peasant revolt and helps kill off the pig-faced slavers. Thematically, the film centers on the value of water as a natural resource and Kain's bank account.

The sword and sorcery genre that emerged in the early 1980s produced some good movies and even more bad ones. "Conan the Barbarian," Arnold Schwarzenegger's big break, serves as one of the better examples. In fact, his movie kicked off the Hollywood quest to run every successful new idea into the ground. And so they did, producing and distributing average fare like Albert Pyun's "The Sword and the Sorcerer" and the atrocious "The Warrior and the Sorceress." Starring the inestimable David Carradine--still recovering from his stint on "Kung Fu" in the 1970s--"The Warrior and the Sorceress" is schlock filmmaking at its cheesy worst. Carradine, whose weird public life is well documented, is one of those actors I have difficulty accepting fully. He does excellent work from time to time, but from the mid 1970s well into the 1980s (and perhaps, some would argue, into the present) he starred in loads of low budget films like Larry Cohen's "Q," "Deathsport," and "Death Race 2000." Undoubtedly, many of these films delight on some level yet they are hardly monuments to epic filmmaking. "The Warrior and the Sorceress" falls well below this category, a movie even fans of the sword and sorcery genre should forget.
"The Warrior and the Sorceress" resembles Albert Pyun's "Omega Doom," which in turn is a rip off of Akira Kurosawa's 1961 film "Yojimbo." It is amazing there are still filmmakers who will copy this film (Omega Doom was made in the late 1990s), but such is life. Why come up with a new idea when an old one will still draw in the dupes? I actually saw a few things to like in Pyun's effort. I saw little to enjoy in "The Warrior and the Sorceress.

The Warrior and the Sorceress managed to adapt the story from Korosawa's YOJIMBO to fair effect, giving this movie's plot far more originality and coherence than most of New Concorde's Sword and Sorcery efforts from the '80's. The villains are more intelligent than most of their ilk, but it is the hero who proves to be the one-eyed man in the Kingdom of the Blind, as he proceeds to prod the badguys to self-destruction. Of course we have the full run of scantily clad ladies cavorting about (this is to be expected), as well as the obligatory epic battle at the end (which is par for the course), but hey this is a B-Movie Sword & Sorcery epic, you need these things in it.
The special effects were kept to a minimum, almost to the point of non-existance, with most of the effort expended on sets and costumes for the lizardmen. The props were (admittedly) rudimentary with only one or two outstanding examples of swords.
The acting was ... patchy, I believe is the best word. It might be that under another director the actors would have delivered a more consistent performance. The fight choreography and stunt work, well let's say you can tell they are trying not to hurt each other, but on the other hand Maria Socas was a definite pleasure to ogle, and her acting about on a par with her cohorts.
All in all, for what it was and what they had to work with, this is definitely a cut above the rest.
My final rating: OK (Wow, OK, Eh, Sigh, Blech, Ach Ptooey).

This has to be one of the very, very worst movies I have ever had the misfortune to own, let alone watch. Granted, there are plenty of topless young ladies running around (and Ms. Socas is certainly bewitching enough as she romps around in the almost-altogether), but despite the allure of pointless nudity, what we have here is a no-holds barred gobblerfest.
While it is true that "Fistfull of Dollars" was a remake of the Kurosawa classic "Yojimbo", "Dollars" was a legitemate film in its own right. "Warrior and the Sorceress" is just a knockoff copy of both films, set for some reason on another planet.
David Carradine plays Kain, a "dark warrior" who is a stand-in for Clint Eastwood with a sword. The name Kain, of course, is the same name as perhaps Carradine's most famous character, from the classic "Kung Fu" television series. Obviously, the producers were trying to capitalize on Carradine's fame as much as possible, just as the producers of another copycat movie "Double Double-Oh-Seven" gave "star" Neil Connery (younger brother of the more famous actor), the character name of... Connery!
Other than being healthily in her prime (as you can tell when she's topless), Socas is forgettable. Carradine is obviously mugging his way through the horrible dialogue (probably hoping the movie would never be seen outside of its native Argentina).
Probably the only other somewhat recognizable actor is Anthony De Longis, who plays a Captain of the Guard. De Longis coreographed the fights in this and many other (more legit) films, and if you recognize the voice, you might just put it together with one of his best-known parts; the Kazon leader Cullah on "Star Trek: Voyager".
