      Matthew D It's better than the first movie with far less misogyny than the novels. That doesn't mean it's good, mind you, but it is a step in the right direction. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 07/20/21 Full Review Audience Member You watched the original Gor film, right? We'll this time our hero returns from earth back to the planet Gor, where swords and sorcery dominate. Our hero must stop the the tyrannical Jack Palance (poor Jack who has to wear ridiculous costumes and spots terrible dialogue). The only positive of the film is the score by Pino Donaggio. I do suppose this film is one that you ironically enjoy because it really is so bad that it's good. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Cheaply made, with a lot of funny goofy moments. The plot is barely followable and the dialog s a mess. The props and effects are hilariously poor looking, not to mention a odd amount of wardrobe malfunctions. It's hard to sit through without the MST3K team. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member As seen on "Mystery Science Theater 3000." That is all. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Despite being a sequel of sorts and based on a book, Outlaw (AKA Outlaw of Gor, AKA Gor II) is a pretty cliched swords and sandals affair. By cliched I mean in story. It's the same old 'hero comes to town, saves everybody, the King dies, he's framed for it, and he proves himself by defeating the villain at the end' story, and it's been done countless times. Now I won't knock the movie completely for that reason, but instead because the acting and dialogue are pretty terrible. The story is more or less straightforward. This film came out the same year that Masters of the Universe did, and it's unbelievable the amount of similarities between the two. Thankfully the crew at Mystery Science Theater 3000 made a really good episode using this one. I wouldn't say that I'd recommend it, but it's decent in the "so good it's bad" way. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Why why why?! If it wasn't for mst3k I would slit my wrists during these movies.
