I guerrieri di Capys distruggono Coos, il villaggio di Agisandro, uccidendo quest'ultimo. Ma il ragazzo viene salvato ed affidato a Maciste. Il mitico eroe, benchè catturato, riesce a liberarsi ed a salvare dal feroce attacco degli uomini della perfida regina il piccolo e la madre di quest'ultimo. Written by
"The people of Sadok are besieged by a terrible, man-eating, giant Cyclops that has ravaged the countryside and consumed many of its people. Atlas (aka 'Maciste') arrives at Sadok with the intent to defeat the monster and help the people, but is faced with another type of battle. The evil Queen Capys has set her sights upon Atlas and decides to try everything in her power to take him as her own. Now, Atlas must try to defeat two enemies as well as rescue the infant descendant of Ulysses from being eaten by the Cyclops," according to the DVD sleeve description.
Re-titled "Atlas in the Land of the Cyclops" for American consumption.
This Italian loincloth and sandals epic features the usual chesty performances. American-born Gordon Mitchell (as "Atlas" aka "Maciste") muscled in on the strong-man ("Hercules") bandwagon, and began his Italian movie career with this one. For the genre, the film isn't the worst; but, you'd be well-advised to begin by considering the average film of this type to be subpar. The most interesting appearance is that of "little Fabio" (as baby Agisander), who is reputed to be the same Fabio who found fame as a romance novel cover model and all-around 1990s celebrity.
