Hawk the Slayer (1980)

Fantasy. UK. Starring John Terry, Jack Palance & William Morgan Sheppard. Directed by Terry Marcel.

Sonet Video (Sweden). English language. Fullscreen.

This cheap brittish sword and sorcery epic could have used better actors (most actors sleepwalk through their roles and only veteran actor Palance delivers fun over-the-top performance as the evil Voltan) and perhaps a little more exiting sets than a brittish pineforest. Still a reasonably entertaining little film that does the best it can with it's meagre resources - not the turkey it has often been painted as. Fans of the genre might want to check it out. 2/5
