Is there anybody who likes this one? If you find some good thing about it, tell me please.

Just look how cool the cover looks...
But what's inside... (This last pic is also a link to one review of Zardoz.)

Oh, the acting was almost fine but that huge head flying around... That was one of the worst effects that I've seen.

Well - to be honest, back in the 80s, when I first saw it, I liked the Eden-Style gardens with the underdressed ladies...

And I adore Connery and his haircut, of course

Re: Zardoz

I think Zardoz has some great ideas but bad production values. But then again it was made a long time ago. So I guess I can forgive that.

Besides the story wich I realy thought was interesting I think that the ending is absolutely briliant.

If you like interesting phylosophical pondering on eternal life and the question if human race can handle that burden , and you are able to put a side bad costumes and sets, then I would definately recomend it.

7.5/10.0

Worth the watch.

Still memorable after all these years. Can't say that about a bunch of SF movies.

The giant flying head.

This was the best scene in the entire movie. A giant flying head full of guns being tossed out to a waiting bunch of horseback riding maniacs to use for killing ordinary people. Thank God the government hasn't watched this one. I think they should all be forced to spend eternity in the Emeral City.

Hehehe... I tend to catagorize this one as VERY British Scifi (And there aint nuthing wrong with that!) and for it's time, I thought it was rather well done. It just had some REALLY out there tangents and stuff. Admittidly a couple of strong Gin & Tonics make the movie go down MUCH easier to be sure.

I kinda like the idea of that far in the future, with the help of a parasytical artificial intelligence (The Tabernacle... and apparently it didn't start out that way but grew from the influence of all the minds it interacted with) a group of Self Important Thinkers grew into a large group of JADED people who had no concept of love but sure as hell knew about laying around and contemplating the eternal secret of navel lint

I have always had a soft-spot for post-apocalyptic scifi to be sure, so of course I watched this film! (own it and not ashamed... feel like I'm at a 12 Step Meeting "Hi... I'm Richard... and I liked Zardoz... and the crowd replies... "Hi Richard!" LOL! JUST KIDDING ALL - ya knows I loves ya!) Arthur Frain I think was the hinkiest character of all since he brought Zed in to be the Vortex's downfall and Shake Things Up. Or am I way of base?

the Ending

The movie's ending is great since it shows that the a new cycle has begun with the introduction of a future combatant.

Charlotte Rampling! I'll sit through any film that has her in it!

If you like her too...check out "Under the sand" and "Swimming Pool" both fine films.

Zardoz has always been a guilty pleasure for me, so bad it's good. Not as much fun as Barbarella, tho, but on the same scale of "what where they thinking?. . ."

I like it. I have it on DVD and it is the cheapest DVD I've ever purchased. I wonder why it doesn't have a forum here.

Oh Jesus Christ on a saltine! I just saw this and other than the giant head that vomits guns, this thing has no redeeming value. That old git Connery must have had a serious coke habit back then. That costume though- little orange shorts and suspenders-cum-bandoleers... *shudder*

He was trying to get acting jobs after coming off of James Bond. IIRC, this was his first one he got offered.
