In the world of science fiction and fantasy, there are tales of epic quests, legendary heroes, and mystical creatures. Wizards of the Lost Kingdom, a classic 1985 film directed by Hector Olivera, brings these elements to life with an engaging story and a cast of talented actors. The tale is set in a mystical and magical world, where good and evil have been battling for centuries. The peaceful land has been destroyed by the cruel and vicious sorcerer, Blackwolf (the wonderfully maniacal Bo Svenson). The sorcerer has enslaved the people, destroyed everything, and wants to rule the world with his dark powers.

But there is hope. Good magic still exists in this world, and has chosen one young boy to be its champion. Simon (the charming Vidal Peterson) is a young man who has grown up in a small village, not knowing of his destiny. But he is destined to become a great wizard, and he must save the world from the evil sorcerer.

Simon sets out on an adventure in search of a magical amulet that will give him the power to defeat Blackwolf. On the way, he meets Kor (a witty and likable Thom Christopher), a warrior from another kingdom, who agrees to help him. Along the way, they encounter all sorts of dangers and difficulties, including ogres, goblins, and Blackwolf's army of minions.

Despite these challenges, Simon and Kor forge ahead, determined to save the world. They face many obstacles, but their courage and ingenuity help them overcome each challenge. They also receive help from unexpected sources, including a friendly dragon and a group of rebels who are fighting against Blackwolf's tyranny.

Through all of these trials, Simon learns to use his magic powers to the best of his abilities, with the guidance of his mentor, the benevolent wizard Whitebeard (the wise, if somewhat eccentric, Robert Tessier). Kor teaches Simon how to fight with swords, which will come in handy when they reach Blackwolf's lair.

The final battle between Simon and Blackwolf is a thrilling, action-packed sequence that will have viewers on the edge of their seats. The two wizards engage in a fierce showdown, unleashing their most powerful spells, and the fate of the world hangs in the balance.

Throughout the film, there are many memorable and exciting moments. For example, when Simon and Kor first come across the dragon, they are understandably hesitant. But the dragon, who has a sense of humor, quips that he is "not very hungry today" and agrees to help them.

Another standout scene takes place in a forest, where Simon and Kor are set upon by a group of ogres. In a clever twist, they use the ogres' love of music to their advantage, tricking them into dancing and singing until they fall asleep.

The performances in Wizards of the Lost Kingdom are uniformly strong. Vidal Peterson has an earnestness and likability that make Simon easy to root for. Thom Christopher brings humor and a devil-may-care attitude to the role of Kor, who is always up for a fight. Bo Svenson is suitably menacing as Blackwolf, with a maniacal laugh that will send shivers down your spine.

The special effects in the film are impressive for a low-budget production. The makeup and costumes for the various creatures are well-designed and believable. The use of stop-motion animation for the dragon is particularly well-done, and there are some striking visual effects during the final battle.

Overall, Wizards of the Lost Kingdom is an entertaining and enjoyable film that will appeal to fans of science fiction and fantasy. It has a classic hero's journey storyline, exciting action scenes, and a memorable cast of characters. It may not have the biggest budget or the most cutting-edge special effects, but it has heart, and that counts for a lot.

Wizards of the Lost Kingdom is a 1985 adventure movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 18 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 2.9.
