Audience Reviews for The Golden Blade

More Hollywood "Arabian" nonsense, this time with Rock (born in Illinois) Hudson and Piper (born in Michigan) Laurie as a son and a daughter respectively of the endless shifting sands of the desert, where the blessings of Allah, the careless hand of Fate, and the fickle temptations of the heart weave their spell of awe and magic! There's horse chases, harem dancing (oolala!), and some borrowing of ye olde Arthurian legend here, and there's some fun too, despite the long ears on this donkey.

Very colorful nonsense is a fun ride but completely ridiculous. One of five films Rock did the year before he broke through to the top flight of stars and left this sort of fodder behind. Piper Laurie is beautiful and her clothes amazing, the fact that she was able to move beyond this kind of cinematic junk food and become an esteemed actress is a testament to her talent.
