'No, I refuse to condemn this film or throw it to the dogs of lazy film criticism' - says Robert Monell in his enthusiastic review of this throwaway title Jess Franco produced for Robert de Nesle in 1973 or thereabouts.
'Karzan against bare-breasted women' a.k.a Lustful Amazons is pretty worthless.
Among the things it has going for it are a very young and super-sexy Lina Romay and a couple of decent jokes. Most Franco films are goofy - sometimes intentionally, sometimes by virtue of being ultra low-budget imitations of popular genres. Karzan, too, has plenty of unintentional hilarity, but some of the lines are quite witty - could be they were penned by Jess in an inspired state or maybe it's the author of the Italian dubbing script I have to thank. One can't be too harsh on a project that must have taken around a week to get filmed. Those who can sit through the filler scenes will be rewarded with a climatic nude wrestling match between Karzan and the queen of the Amazons.
