I really love
27 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

I really love old sword and sandal movies but really, it is beyond comprehension how any viewer (even in 1954) would not find this film laughable. True, Cleo's costumes were stunning and the Technicolor was dazzling, but that's about where my constructive criticism ends.Did the early Romans invent hair gel? Check out Lucillius's 1950's hairstyle! The fight scenes are truly risible highlighted by at least three Egyptians carefully eying up the padding below to break their fall after having been shot with arrows. The great sea battle of Actium was overlooked because the special effects department had only one model of a sea galley.Please watch this movie if you have the chance - the pleasures it brings will delight you!
