Golden Temple Amazons Reviews
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.
Dubbing is terrible, acting is worse, and all the ladies are essentially naked for the whole movie (with a slo-mo topless horse back riding intro of course).
The film is set in the Amazon, but in one scene you can see a car drive by in what clearly looks like a freeway. Shot in a city park perhaps? I would usually look up the answer to that.... but the movie does not really deserve that much attention.
Best image: the one-eyed amazon warden snarling and weilding a golden axe as one of her submissives uses a large wrench in a makeshift castration. Boo ya!
