Beastmaster 2: Through the Portal of Time is the 1991 sequel to the 1982 cult classic film The Beastmaster, starring Marc Singer and Kari Wührer.

Plot[edit]

Dar, the Beastmaster (Marc Singer), is back and now he has to deal with his half-brother, Arklon (Wings Hauser), and a sorceress named Lyranna (Sarah Douglas) who have escaped to present day Los Angeles. Despite the name, the movie is not about traveling through a time portal, but traveling through a portal to a parallel universe that 1991 Earth exists in. Dar and his animal companions, Ruh, Kodo, Podo and Sharak, must follow them through the portal and stop them from obtaining a neutron bomb. During his visit, Dar meets a rich girl named Jackie Trent (Kari Wuhrer) and they become friends.

Reception[edit]

Beastmaster 2: Through the Portal of Time was widely panned by critics and fans and often regarded as "one of the worst sequels ever made". most criticism comes from the B-movie quality, poor direction, plot-holes, inconsistencies with the first film, ignoring its source material and the tongue-in-cheek feel.
