YMMV / Red Sonja

The books:

The comics:

  • Foe Yay: With Dark Annisia in the Gail Simone series. Not so much subtext as text, since Annisia was undeniably in love with Sonja at one time and may still be.

The film:

  • Special Effects Failure:
    • The skeleton bridge over the lava is quite obviously a matte painting.
    • In the opening scene with Gedren's army attacking the nuns, we see the same nun being thrown into the pit twice.
    • The sea monster looks so bad that they actually tried to cover it with a line that it's a machine, despite this being a ridiculous case of Schizo Tech.
  • Unfortunate Implications: The Encyclopedia of Fantasy accused the movie of being morally dubious as far as the portrayal of homosexuality is concerned. Gedren is portrayed as a lesbian whose rivalry with Sonja is based partly on the fact that Sonja once rejected her sexual advances.
