      Alan Jones Starburst Hawk is a one line idea fleshed out in the extreme... it isn't this pantomime humor that finally sinks the film, it's the acting. Jul 26, 2022 Full Review Eddie Harrison …Hawk The Slayer might be a rip-off, but it’s a fun, idiosyncratic film that’s gaining momentum as a cult item…one of the cheesiest films ever made… Rated: 3/5 Mar 24, 2021 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Aug 4, 2005 Full Review Frank Swietek One Guy's Opinion Rated: 0/5 Jun 22, 2004 Full Review Widgett Walls Oh, baby. It is so bad, it circumnavigates the scale and comes back to good again. Rated: 3/5 Feb 16, 2003 Full Review Read all reviews

      StephenPaul C The greatest 01 hour: and 34 minutes ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love magical, flying swords!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/11/23 Full Review Ten F Such a fun time watching this, I stood up and clapped at the end. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/20/22 Full Review Lord S Okay, this movie is a seminal classic and has to be seen to be appreciated. It influenced so many "swords and sorcery" films of its time, that it's virtually required watching for any fan of the genre. Yes; it does have a very disco-ey/synth-heavy soundtrack in places, but its certainly family-friendly (lack of blood/gore) and is heavier on story, borrowing a bit from classic "hired gunfighter" tropes like "Seven Samurai" or "Magnificent Seven." If you were born in the 70s and grew up in the '80s, you should OWN this film! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/03/22 Full Review Audience Member The greatest movie ever made Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member A great old sword and sorcery romp With a good story and a fun scenes and dastardly villain Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member A classic medieval fantasy, with an amazing sound-track. The mind-sword is a great weapon too. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
