Ropey British-made sword & sorcery yarn with about as much fantasy or adventure as a documentary about fungus. 
The hero of the piece, Hawk, does happen to wield an awesome looking sword though, featuring a fist clutching an emerald on pommel of the hilt, and uses it to fight bad guy Jack Palance. Aside from that, it's all rather forgettable, with some truly awful special effects and a ghastly music score.
