Jungle queen protects tribe against an overzealous royal football player with assist from animal helpers. The scenery, including Tanya Roberts, is breathtaking. Nominated for five Razzies, including Tanya for Worst Actress.

They should have just kept this in the comics.

A guilty pleasure not nearly as bad a critics would believe, especially when compared with the sword and sandal travesties of the era. In spirit, it does not stray from the ethos of the later Tarzan films of the Forties.

One of the worst movies ever made. The PG nudity may appeal (Roberts is gorgeous) but the plot is laugh out loud bad the acting is worse and the animals are Obviously painted!

The exotic Tanya Roberts and her supporting cast are somehow outshone by a horse made-up as a zebra, an elephant whose mission to topple giant stones, and an army of flamingos.

1933's King Kong Is My Ninth Favorite Film Of All Time.

High on a loose script, and good aesthetic skin show.. Ideally suited for kids, but actually doesn't make for grt movie making..

Look, it's Sheena queen of the jungle, the title alone tells you it's not going to be a sweeping drama of moral relevance or the powerful struggle of one woman's burning need to find a bra that fits in the middle of the African continent. But it's cute, and light hearted and not meant to be taken seriously. It has an eco-friendly message while being so lame you feel you should shoot it to put it out of its misery. Watch for the popcorn factor, rent Gone with the Wind after if you feel redemption is necessary!

Skikkelig dårlig og nesten ikke morsom engang... Bli enda verre av at konseptet kunna vært utnytta bedre IMO

Sheena may have more animal friends than Tarzan. The orphaned white jungle queen gets their help to defend Zambouli land from being exploited by a greedy prince. Often maligned film is not bad and has some of the best scenery you will see.

Back when comic book adaptations were really hokey. Seems like they knew the script was bad so they substituted lots of cheesecake and any excuse to have Roberts bounce on a horse or get wet...

I watched this movie when I was a little girl and loved it

Tanya Roberts plays Sheena (a character based upon a comic book hero.) The film is real flimsy and shaman-like. It runs at a snail pace and by the time the movie ends you're glad but at the same time left wondering what the hell you just watched!

Awful, badly acted film, with plenty of unconvincing stunts, and the dialogue is just as bad, too.
½ September 24, 2011
Cringeworthy lines, bad acting, terribly unsuited score (sounds like they've used the leftover bits from Chariots of Fire). Only worthy of watching if you're interested in seeing Tanya Roberts in the buff.

They painted stripes on a horse and called it a zebra!

Deranged jungle film finds a young girl left abandoned after her parents are apparently killed in a cave collapse. She is adopted by Shaman, a jungle woman who likes a black version of Faye Dunnaway for some reason, and she begins to learn the life of the jungle while being surrounded by relatively calm, exotic animals. Then one day, she grows up, and invaders from the outside world arrive and she tries to protect her civilization.

So many questions are asked after watching this film, which include: why does that zebra look so bizarre and go "naah"? Or why does Sharman not age for twenty years (not even plastic surgery, if there is any in the jungle, could save her from wrinkles)? Or why does no one go out and search for Sheena and her missing parents at the beginning of the film? Or why does the background African images resemble the Great Salt Flats of Utah? Or why does that helicopter being attacked by the flamingoes resemble the scenes from Hitchcock's "The Birds"? Or why does everything explode in a ball of fury? Or what happened to the scripwriters of this film? Or why does this film have a rating of PG (Parental Guidance) when you see explosive Tanya Roberts nudity? So many questions, none of them can answered in this contrived, incoherent empty-headed joke! In her 1984 review, New York Times critic Janet Maslin said "'Sheena' is the perfect summer movie for anyone who's dissatisfied with the season's intentional comedies..." Considering it is 27 years later and there are not many good comedies this summer, it could work!
