REEVES DOUBLE DESERVES COSTAR BILLING.
14 November 1999 | by (CARDIFF, WALES) – See all my reviews

I was a huge fan of Steve Reeves in the early 60's and saw all of his movies,however on seeing some of them again recently I was amazed at how extensively doubled he was in his many action scenes.In his character's final fight scene in THE WHITE WARRIOR he is doubled throughout by a stuntman who bears scant resemblence to him at all.I don't want to burst the guy's bubble at all as Reeves remains one of the cult action stars but I would have thought that a great part of the enjoyment of getting into these sort of movies would be to film at least part of your own fight scenes. Reeves rarely did. THE WHITE WARRIOR is not one of his best and is hardly the epic described on the video cover;it plays like an amateur dramatic societys attempt at TARAS BULBA! You know that the hero's name is Agi Murad because everyone who speaks to him uses his name about a dozen times.There are two beautiful actresses in this movie,Scilla Gabel and Georgia Moll and Reeves is less cautious about kissing them than he is about doing his own stunts.However,those who choose to watch a Reeves movie never wanted to see him kiss,we wanted to see him fight.It seems that in retrospect we rarely did,just an un-named stuntman.Another childhood illusion shattered.
