Barbarian Queen 2: The Empress Strikes Back (1992)

Rating: *
Review Date: 1/1/00
Cast: Lana Clarkson

With so many unanswered questions left at the end of the original "Barbarian Queen" (1985), we could only hope for a sequel. Yeah, right. This film is downright awful, offering little more than an excuse for Lana Clarkson to get naked on the rack again. Twice. Amethea's (Lana Clarkson) father, the king, has died in battle and Amethea's nasty brother claims the throne. But Amethea will not tolerate his rule and eventually escapes the castle to join a bunch of downtrodden peasants and lead them into battle against the naughty king. Boring and stupid, with only one cute barbarian girl to look at (and why are the cute ones always the clumsy ones?). One memorable quote from Amethea is "one night with me would destroy you." Hell, it almost destroyed me. Better pass this one up.
