review by
Mike Haberfelner

When Liana (Analia Ivars) was still a child, her father (Jean-René Gossart), missionary in Africa, discovered the secret city of the amazons, and under it a vast goldmine. But the amazons are rather keen on keeping the secret city a secret and their gold theirs, so they shoot the missionary and his wife. Liana is forced to grow up on her own, with the (obligatory) jungle animals.

Years later, Liana is a woman now and living the jungle life, wearing nothing but a loincloth and a threesome of foxtails around her neck to cover (or more often not cover) her breasts, when father John (Oliver Mathot) stops by to tell her a few things about the murder of her parents ... and Liana of course knows nothing better to do than to swear revenge. Soon she sets out to find the secret city, accompanied by bumbling shaman KouKou (Stanley Kapoul), and soon they are also joined by a trio of explorers, Harvey (Emilio Linder), Bella (Alicia Príncipe) and their guide Bob (Antonio Mayans), who soon becomes Liana's love interest.

They soon enough find the secret entrance to the secret city alright, but fail to notice this entrance is protected by narcotic gasses until it is pretty much too late, and they are taken prisoner by the amazons. Their leader Uruck (William Berger) cares little for his prisoners and soon enough sentences them to torture and death ... except for Liana whom he has laid his eyes on and now wants to make her his favourite concubine ... much to the dismay of Rena (Francoise Blanchard), his current favourite concubine ... and just to be a fair enough ruler, he sets up a fight between Rena and Liana "until the first blood is spillt", to decide over whom to bed next. But to break Liana's spirit, he locks her away with her friends, whom Rena has brutally tortured. The next day though, Liana's spirit seems far from broken and she wrestles down Reena ... and as a reward is raped by Uruck.

But being all horny, Uruck seems to have forgotten to disarm Liana ... so after the act she pulls the knife she brought and stabs him. Trying to escape though, Liana is stopped short by an arrow shot by Rena, who has taken over from Uruck at the drop of a hat, and with him gone, she lets loose her sadistic side - and it ain't pretty ...

 

Now I won't mince words, Golden Temple Amazons isn't a very good film - in fact, it's fair to say it's a bloody bad movie, a grossly underbudgeted jungle girl picture with a few too many excuses to show naked breasts, very tacky "jungle" outfits, cheapish props and sets, and while the location shots (alledgedly done in a safari park in Spain) at least look kind of authentic and do feature actual jungle animals, fences around the area can be seen a few times too often in the background, as well as cars passing on a motorway a mere stonethrow away. And add to that acting that's not always on the convincing side and you've got ... a pretty entertaining movie, actually, at least if you're at all into low budget 1980s genre fare. Thing is, bad as the film might be on an objective level, it does play a fun riff on the genre, incorporating many a genre cliché into its story (many of which might not stand the test of political correctness in this day and age), the film's attempts at titilation are pretty charming, and one can't help but assume that filmmakers Alain Payet and schlock veteran Jess Franco haven't taken their stuff too seriously at all.

In all, you might have to be a trash movie enthusiast like me to properly enjoy this movie, but then you'll be richly rewarded ...
