A Stone Age World (that never was), where dinosaurs & cavemen walk the earth freely: After Yor (Reb Brown) has saved Ka-Laa (Corinne Clery) & her mentor Pak (Alan Collins) from a giant reptile, he is invited to come & live with their tribe ... but the tribe is annihilated only minutes later by Ukan's rivalling tribe, & only Yor, Ka-Laa & Pak survive ... but oh bugger, Ka-Laa is soon abducted by Ukan's men into their cave, where she uis to become his concubine. Good thing though that the deadly bird of the night flies by whom Yor shoots down from the skies & uses him as paraglider to lower himself into Ukan's cave, to free Ka-Laa & releasing a flood onto Ukan's cave ...

Yor, who is searching for his origins, goes to the desert where he has heard of a woman who is blond (like him) & wears the same medaillon as he does. He finds her to be lovely Roa (Ayshe Gul), the goddess of a desert tribe who worship a spaceship crew (?) frozen in ice (in the desert ?) that gives the tribe just enough water to survive ... For some reason, Yor starts a fight with the men of Roa's tribe, kills most of them & takes her with him. She thanks him by promptly falling in love with him - & he with her.

This all is of course much to the dismay of Ka-Laa, who has since fallen in love with Yor as well, & soon the 2 women fight - & would have contined until death, presumably, wouldn't Ukan have showed up again, wanting to kidnap both of the girls ... ultimately of course Yor can defeat, even kill Ukan, but unfortunately Roa dies in the process as well.

Yor, Ka-Laa & Pak continue their voyage until they reach the sea, & hook up with another tribe that seems to be at war with some spaceships ... & soon enough the tribe's village is evaporated by means of laser ...

Yor is given a boat by the suriving villagers to go to a mysterious island where the spaceships are said to come from & where the his own origins may lie.

Once on the island, Yor is soon taken prisoner by its ruler, the mad scientist & conqueror Overlord (John Steiner), who runs a highly sophisticated lab complete with nuclear reactor here, & his android guards (which look conspicuously like Darth Vader from those Star Wars flicks, himself a shameless copy of Doctor Who's Ice Warriors, only painted black), while Pak & Ka-Laa throw in with the island's rebels.

yor soon learns about his origins, that he was the son of some rebel spacemen, & that his world (this world ?) was actually a once advanced civilisation bombed back to the Stone Age by man's own madness. Soon Overlord captures Ka-Laa too, & for some reason plans to brainwash & clone both her & Yor, but this is when the rebels, who have (in absence) chosen Yor as their leader, attack, free them both, turn off the androids & attach a neat little timebomb to the local reactor. Then everybody, the rebels, Yor, Ka-Laa & pak, make their escape in a spaceship, only Overlord goes up in a bang.

 

Of course this one is stupid, silly as hell, & neither acting nor costumes or special effects are really up to it, & it's obviously a cheap cash-in on both Conan the Barbarian & the Star Wars-movies ...

... and yet it's such a charming piece of trash, full of  wonderfully cheesy costumes like fake leather bikinis & fur-boots, with a simplistic yet over-the-top storyline & a loveable carelaessness in blending genres (especially the stone age-, the barbarian- & the sci-fi-genre) reminiscent of old serials. Another thing that might remind of the old serials is the film's episodic structure, but that is rather because it was originally conceived as a tv-miniseries (but to all my knowledge never shown that way).

So I admit, it's not a great film in the traditional sense, but it's great fun when watched with a couple of beers & a bunch of friends (who should preferably also have a couple of beers each).
