one of the best sword & sandal movies i've ever seen.
I was 11yrs. old when I saw this movie for the first time. I was immediately "hooked" on Steve Reeves. This is still the only movie 45 years later that I get excited talking about. Reeves had an on-screen presence that was mesmerizing. The scene in which he is strapped to two horses that are pulling in opposite directions designed to split him apart is breath taking. And this is one of many scenes that exploits the magnificence of Steve's fantastic physique. Along with Reeves is the beautiful actress, Chelo Alonso who plays Reeves' love interest. They are truly electrifying on screen.(If you can call anything filmed in 1959 "electric"). I've seen about every movie that Steve Reeves made...from HERCULES to LONG RIDE FROM HELL. Even though HERCULES is the movie Steve will most be remembered for, GOLIATH & THE BARBARIANS will always be a top 10 favorite of mine!!!
