It's a Spanish/ Italian middling epic movie
1 June 2004 | by See all my reviews

This Sword and Sandals film centers upon Ursus , the bouncing hunk man who fights against the evil persons . He befriends a blind girl and he's fending off the villains .

The good guys are Ed Fury (Ursus), Maria Luisa Merlo (the blind girl) , Luis Prendes , Manuel Gil and the bad guys are Rafael Luis Calvo , Roberto Camardiel (secondary in many spaghetti western) and Moira Orfei (sister of Liana Orfei also ordinary in Peplum) . Ursus will defeat them at an island where's the headquarter ruled by Moira Orfei who's usually in these flicks . This is a regular spaghetti , myth-opera with action , love , battles and luxurious landscapes . The movie has not mythological accuracy neither expecting historical . The film is regularly directed by Carlo Campollani who made many fables of this kind . Carlo along with Vittorio Cottafavi and Giorgio Ferroni continued to realize films in the historical-spectacular style , at which he developed an acceptable skill and mastery .

The movie obtained success and originated a second part . Rating 4,5/10
