Thrilling and spectacular Spanish movie full of imagination and fantasy
16 January 2011 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

HEART OF THE WARRIOR is a tense, mysterious and suspenseful Spaniard movie appointed to juvenile public and role playing aficionados. Sword-and-sorcery epic with silly adventures , spectacular images and fantastic scenes with witchcraft and necromancy .This is a tale of fantasy , magic , imagination, blood and wizardly set in a mythical primitive world and modern age. This is an amusing adventure inspired on Robert E Howard's pulp tales with interesting and thrilling screenplay by the same director Javier Monzon. It stars Fernando Ramallo who dreams every night in the alternate world of being the mythic and valiant warrior Beldar (Joel Joan), a Hyborian Age hero in loincloth fighting heinous forces of evil , he is usually accompanied by the gorgeous Sonja (Neus Asensi). They undergo on a perilous trip to find a treasure confronting magicians (Santiago Segura) , spectres and dangerous adventures. Fernando Ramallo becomes involved in a conspiracy to kill the President (Adria Collado) of a political party , whom he is convinced results to be a sect leader and leading a vibrant ending.

This exciting film packs noisy action, fantasy, comedy, adventure, witchery , rip-roaring fights and some nudism in charge of the sexy Neus Asensi. Dumb images , intentionally hilarious and lots of amusement and entertainment . Made on a fairly big scale with spectacular production design and glimmer photography . Quite budget for a Spanish movie and lavishly produced by Eduardo Campoy and Gerardo Herrero. This entertaining picture contains suspense, frenetic action, twits plots, tension , necromancy, and moving action scenes such as the underground scenes . The film is full of freaks and Psychotronic characters ; it is quite entertaining because being a laborious and intriguing suspense tale with lots of humor and tongue-in-cheek . Good special effects by DDT , subsequently won Academy Award for ¨Pan's Labyrinth¨. Colorful cinematography by Carlos Gusi (Torrente, Box 507) who photographs splendidly Madrid outdoors and interiors. Impressive musical score composed and conducted by Roque Baños (Fragiles, Machinist,Sexy beast,800 bullets) as vibrant as the Basil Poledouris's original score Conan .The motion picture is well directed by Daniel Monzon, a former cinema critic. Previously he directed comedy ¨Biggest robbery never told¨, being his Hit smash ¨ Celda 211¨ starred by Luis Tosar who appears as very secondary in ¨Heart of the Warrior¨. Rating : Good, better than average. The film will appeal to twisted stories buffs . In other words, it seem likely Conan enthusiasts and juvenile viewers will be delighted because thrills, action and adventures are brilliantly presented and edited to offer the maximum impact.
