Synopsis
During the Roman Empire, the wicked and crass Crassius (Patrick Bergin) rules his small province with an iron hand and a sharp sword. The only resistance in his domain is a tribe of women skilled in the martial arts -- Amazons -- who regularly whip Crassius' gladiators in defense of their freedom. One Amazon in particular -- the outrageously beautiful former slave dancer Serena (Nichole Hiltz) -- is bent on revenge, seeing how Crassius was responsible for the brutal death of her mother, the destruction of her childhood village, her enslavement, and the death of her boyfriend Lucius (Richard Norton). It all comes down to a no-holds-barred clash of Amazons and gladiators in a packed arena, with Serena and Crassius headlining the bout. ~ Buzz McClain, All Movie Guide

This movie got two things right:
1. Each actor or actresses screen time is directly proportional to their ability.
2. The props and sets are downright fantastic.

I simply can't understand how a dime-novel story and local play-house acting (apologies to local play-houses everywhere) got paired up with such excellent sets and props. Other than a couple of obviously plastic peices of flair, the costumes are good enough for Braveheart. And the sets (though of small scale) seem very authentic. It's as if some B (C?) movie producer had a stroke of genius and hired a bunch of dedicated SCA-ers to handle the costumes and sets.
