Eight years before Kubrik..
12 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

... and I would like to avoid any comparison,because Freda's work is a good one which compares favorably with its epic successor.I'm even almost sure that Dalton Trumbo saw this movie ,because Ludmilla Tcherina 's and Jean Simmons 's characters look like each other a lot.The longing for freedom is more intense in Freda's work ,perhaps because these are Italians in their homeland.No "snails or oysters " scene but on the other hand ,it's amazing how his enemies try to win over Spartacus,by charm (Gianna Maria Canale's Sabina) or by promising him a high position in the Roman Empire (her father).Final scenes are similar in both movies and Tcherina's sword is finally more convincing than Simmons' baby.

Freda's directing is impressive and features a lot of strong scenes .Good performances.
