Trivia

The symbolic design on the large rayed solar disk which can be seen on a wall in the queen's palace imitates the font and spiral design found on the mysterious Phaistos disc (~1700 B.C.), which remains yet to be deciphered. See more »

Goofs

In many shots during Maciste's fight with the lion, the lion can be heard roaring, even though it is clearly not roaring in the footage. See more »

The extraordinary and luscious Chelo Alonso is the evil queen in this outlandish peplum, and that's enough for me.
19 May 2003 | by (Colorado Springs) – See all my reviews

Chelo Alonso is once again on hand in another cheesy muscleman movie. Sadly, she doesn't get to perform one of her seductive dance numbers in this one, an unforgiveable omission if there ever was one. As for the rest of the film, it's mostly Gordon Mitchell's show as he's asked to display his rugged physique in virtually every scene. Fun kitsch, even though Chelo was wasted.
