Audience Reviews for Golden Temple Amazons
Laughable jungle nonsense. Or is it savannah nonsense? Hard to tell the way these warrior women jetset between rainforest and Serengheti locations. Hey Franco, here's a hint: Amazons are supposed to live along the Amazon, not cavort with lion cubs on the African plains. Actually released in 1986, not 2005. Opening shot sets the tone with ten women riding topless in slow-motion before our main event Liana (Joan Virly) takes the stage. She's attractive but has the worst sense of danger for someone who grew up in the wild for 16 years, getting captured by surprise FOUR times! Lots of other laughs too: the zipline that substitutes for vine-swinging, the missionary whose idea of an introduction is to tell Liana her parents were murdered, the bendable arrows, malevolent cave gas, rampant bad acting, and the pathetic "Go away or else!" ending. Things that will get on your nerves include Kuku the incredibly annoying pessimistic chanting shaman, two pieces of unimaginative music alternating as a soundtrack, and long-distance action shots. One reason to choose this over any other similar silly adventure is Lina Romay's impromptu skinny dip followed by an inexplicable nude walkabout, but no-one's complaining. Best line comes from Liana, covered in pelts and furs: "All the animals are my friends." Um, except the ones she's wearing, obviously.
Prett much complete garbage. Somewhere between Sheena and a cannibal film, Golden Temple Amazons can only be enjoyed as a comedic experience. Constantly topless women, bizarre native characters, and a less than lame plot make this a joke fest at best. For starters, the women are supposedly Amazons, yet, from the elephants, giraffes, etc., they appear to be in Africa. Franco has made better cannibal films, and this isn't really a cannibal film to begin with, especially given its complete lack of cannibalistic behavior. For a better Franco cannibal film, watch Cannibals.
Jesus Franco's need to make this long after the cannibal boom beats the hell outta me. Of course, it's certainly amusing and, dare I say, entertaining at some points, but the whole ordeal is too tedious. Oh yes, supposed to be set in the Amazon, yet African animals (and an African tribe) make prominent appearances.
