Storyline

Leo Vincey receives a map from his late father, leading him to the legendary city of Kor in search of an explanation for his mysterious ancestry. He is accompanied by his girlfriend Roxanne. He discovers that he is the only descendant of an Egyptian priest who had been executed for the crime of falling in love with the Egyptian Princess. The ruling queen Ayesha, or rather She, is the same Egyptian Princess of centuries ago, her beauty and youth look being preserved by magic. She becomes convinced that Leo is the reincarnation of her former lover, and wants to kill him. Leo and Roxanne will have to fight against surprise attacks on them, but survival in that foreign land with strange customs, is difficult. Leo is terribly attracted to She's beauty, but at the same time he fears for her obscure spirit, and finally he must take a decision - to run away from her, or to love her and die. Written by Artemis-9

Trivia

In all the other film versions of H. Rider Haggard's "She", Leo Vincey's guardian has been called 'Horace Holly'. In this one, the nameplate on his door says 'Ludovico H. Holly'. In the books, Haggard calls him L. Horace Holly, so both variations are plausible. See more »

Re-heated banquet leftovers
28 February 2006 | by wellsangelSee all my reviews

The greatest shame in this film is that it is taken from outstanding source material, and doesn't even come close to living up to its breeding. This is mostly because Hollywood audiences can't be counted on to be English Lit and History buffs, nor to have a working knowledge of Greek, Latin and Arabic. What remains is a weak, improbable adventure tale that relies on over-exposition, swagger and sex, those great movie mainstays. Filming is somewhat reminiscent of campy 1970's schlock sci-fi.

"She", "Ayesha" and the prequel "Allan (Quartermain) and She" are, in fact, the stuff of which Indiana Jones was a pale and Americanized Everyman version. Haggard's novels are worth an epic cinematographic gesture, a la Peter Jackson, but this, the ninth attempt, isn't it.

Three flaming mummies out of ten for persistence, though, and some fun scenes.
