An attractive attempt to do something different with the swords and sorcery genre with some memorable moments, but some of the production value looks like a Monty Python movie and it's permeated by 80s cheese.

This is a great B-movie and well worth watching for all lovers of fantasy and adventure movies. Also, I generally recommend watching anything with Rutger Hauer in it as you'll probably have some fun.

Anyone who loves fantasy and romance will love this film. Broderick is so funny and endearing. Hauer is a dark, tough leading man. Pfeiffer is wonderful as the beautiful, mysterious Ladyhawke. Lots of fighting and good versus evil that will keep the men interested as well as the ladies.
