A glacier attacks.

Commentary

The flaws are not subtle: Consistently pornographic portrayals of women, weak characterization, weak environments (because the rotoscoped actors have nothing to work with), terribly uninspired worldbuilding. The whole idea of an army mustering to defend a country against a glacier is great kitsch, dumber than The Adventures of Hols, Prince of the Sun (1968). Still, relatively realistically proportioned Ralph Bakshi feature fantasy animation is worth seeing even with the sensibility of a contemporary crappy game of second-edition D&D.
