With the sword of mind, given to him by his dying father, Hawk (John Terry) sets out on a quest for vengeance against the one who killed his father, his own brother the villainous and evil Voltan (Jack Palance). Recruiting a small band to to aid him, Hawk sets outs to thwart his brothers evil plans.

And what a great movie it was! A repeating machine crossbow! This had to be one of my favourite films when I was a kid and I’m pretty sure that I managed to somehow incorporate that crossbow into Dungeons and Dragons at some point. In fact, if I’m not mistaken the Darkshards from Games Workshop’s Warhammer have something similar.

If you haven’t seen it then its definitely worth checking out, especially if you are into the 80’s fantasy films, its a classic and has an awesome soundtrack to boot!
