It's a Spanish/ Italian middling epic movie about the usual hero combating enemies
1 June 2004 | by See all my reviews

This mythological movie is plenty of adventures , emotions , thrills , atmospheric settings and colorful scenarios well photographed . Sword and Sandals film centers upon Ursus , the bouncing hunk man who fights against evil people . 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 .

The corpulent Ed Fury was a hunk man who made lots of roman epic films also called ¨Musclemen movies¨ . Other stars by the time on this type of movies are Mark Forest , Gordon Mitchell, Dan Vadis , Brad Harris and 'Gordon Scott' and of course , the great Steve Reeves , as nobody, nevertheless, topped Steve in popularity . 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 was 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 , passable though mediocre .
