This could've been a tv series, made for tv movie, mini-series, or a movie from theater on tv. It was live-action fantasy. The good guys (I think) had a bow(s) that would bind itself to its user by zapping them on the chest and would scar/brand some sort of pattern there.


I think you probably mean The Archer: Fugitive from the Empire a failed TV pilot from 1981.

YouTube has the trailer and you can see the "branding" if you go to 1:00.

    This looks amazing! How many series did it run for? – Valorum Jul 7 '17 at 23:02

    @Valorum Just the one movie on TV. Never got picked up to series. Left on a cliffhanger, too. – eshier Jul 7 '17 at 23:03
  • Agreed. I remember watching this pilot as a little kid. It's almost certainly the show the OP is looking for. – Helbent IV Jul 7 '17 at 23:03
