 I first saw this movie back in the VHS days under the longer and sillier title of THE PERILS OF GWENDOLINE IN THE LAND OF THE YIK YAK.  That version must have been highly edited though since I don't recall the massive amount of boobs and ass or blood-filled killings on display which are here in the Severin DVD.  Basically this movie answers the question of what would INDIANA JONES have been like if it was directed by the guy that made EMMANUELLE and was filled with naked amazons, naked Tawny Kitaen, cannibals, bloody violence and stupid 80's cliched dialogue.  It is based on a comic so I guess that's a good excuse for the dumb lines and it also gives the film a bit of a BARBARELLA vibe(mostly because our heroine is so stupid) but unfortunately it doesn't have half the style or artistry of that classic(the Amazon palace set is pretty neat though).
 I have mixed feelings about this one since on the one hand it's about as dumb as most things in the 80's but if it was made someplace like Hong Kong or Italy I would probably give it extra credit just for it's embracing of nudity and blood.  Not a complete waste of time but probably more enjoyable if you don't let the stupid bits bother you so much.
