We’d seen this movie years ago and it again caught our attention. My husband wasn’t planning to pay for it, but accidentally clicked on it. It didn’t give him an option to confirm the purchase, it just automatically linked in to our account. Seeing that we’d paid for it anyway, we decided to watch it on the weekend but, to our disappointment, we then found out that we had to start watching it within 24hrs of purchase.
So, for a movie we accidentally purchased and should have been able to keep and watch several times (if we wanted to) we didn’t even get to see it once!!! Not happy with the Amazon Prime system 🙁.
An outrageous blend of humor and erotic fantasy, focusing on a sexually emancipated space woman who vanquishes evil all around her, and rewards the handsome men who assist her.

BARBARELLA BLU RAYReviewed in the United Kingdom on 6 June 2018
This review is for the Paramount BLU RAY released 2016. The film was shot in Panavision, so we get a widescreen transfer with bars top and bottom, excellent colour, clear picture and sound, with optional English Subtitles. I haven't seen the film for many years and I had forgotten how much (tasteful) nudity/semi nudity, and sexy costumes we get from Ms. Fonda. She is at her sexy peak and truly carries the film. Oddly enough, there is no actual sex! If memory serves she doesn't even kiss anyone. What added to my viewing pleasure were the spectacular sets and costumes, and the performences of David Hemmings as a very clumsy rebel leader, and Anita Pallenberg as the black queen (two points of interest 1) She doesn't get a mention in the credits on the reverse sleeve, yet gets 3rd billing on the film credits (I think it's third). 2) she is dubbed by Joan Greenwood of all people, who sounds a bit like Fenella Fielding - Confusing.). Also something else puzzled me - Veronique Vendel, an actress not unknown, gets a good billing, but I don't remember her at all - I looked IMDP and she played a "Captain Sun". Perhaps her part was edited out? Has the film dated, and did I enjoy it? Yes, and Yes. It's still fun thanks to Jane and the cast and the extraordinary colour/sets. Recomended, perhaps more so to those who do remember it from their youthful past.

Not a directors cut. However it has the complete film. Before the 1960’s censors cuts.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 22 July 2019
The first time I saw this film was as a teenager in 1968. Back then I was very impressed at what was the most risqué sci-fi film I had seen. What I didn’t realise was it had been heavily edited by the British board of censors. Fast forwarding to 2019 and watching it again. I found it still very entertaining even though it was a very thin plot. I was surprised to be able to see all the scenes cut out by the British board of censors. Tame by today’s standards, but never the lest a delightful blast from my past.

One from my childhoodReviewed in the United Kingdom on 19 February 2021
DVD arrived safely in enough packaging to keep it safe. The disc was in an excellent condition, shame the film was disappointing. I remember seeing the trailer as a child and when it came to the TV I was old enough to go drinking with friends so missed it the The film was disappointing even for a 1960's pop culture classic. Stupid story, ridiculous acting, pathetic special effects. Do not know why they keep talking of making a new Barbarella film, the original has not aged well.

Loved the interior of her spaceshipReviewed in the United Kingdom on 9 March 2018
Very camp, daft typical sixties SciFi, with Jane Fonda changing her costume almost every 5 minutes. Loved the interior of her spaceship, which looked like a tart's boudoir. The best characters in the film are the villains, Duran Duran, played by the late great Milo O'Shea, and The Great Tyrant, played by the late Anita Pallenberg. For all its faults, the film is highly enjoyable, with Miss Fonda playing a heroine with a sense of humour.

Great filmReviewed in the United Kingdom on 28 May 2018
A film that show everything that was just perfect about the '60 and the awakening of sexual freedom. Yes the sets look as if they are are made from cardboard but this takes nothing away from the fun of the film. It had been so long since I've seen this movie, way back when I was teenager, so forgot how much fun it is.
