The film is not all that bad, but it is dry except for a few scenes of action now and then. It's a lot of political and religious talk. Most all of the the leading actors play their characters flat, mundanely save for Gordon Scott who has a little bit of charisma as Marcus Lucilius. (I am speaking of facial expressions, movements and of the voice actors for the dubbing into English).
This is set in the times of Pagan Rome and Christians were considered to be outlaws. Nisa is a princess but only Valerio knows she is a princess and she's valuable to him. Marcus has become enslaved and Valerio wants him released as well. It ends up that the Christians and Gladiators escapes from the Pagan Romans. Of course there is big hunt for the escapees. In the end, some of the Christians and Marcus are being crucified... but if they make it out or not you'll have to watch it for yourself to find out.
It's barely entertaining. I really needed something else to pick it up and get it moving along a bit faster and in a better way. Could have been a good film - the potential was there.
