This one has everything, and then some
16 April 2004 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

The question I'm asked is why do I watch movies like this with any frequency? The answer has to do with the monsters and the fact that many of these things throw everything at you except for the kitchen sink, and that's only left out because it wasn't invented yet.

After a war ends Goliath prepares to head home, except that Bokan, the regent of his country has sent assassins to kill Goliath since he is the only one who could take the place of the dead king, a fact that would put Bokan out of a job. Bokan is not standing for any opposition to his rue and he pitches anyone who doesn't like him into a valley where giants live, Giants who were put there by Goliath years before.

Trying to get home faster Goliath and his friends try to go by sea but get waylaid on the voyage.

Its at this point that the movie throws in everything except the kitchen sink, and perhaps aliens, as Goliath has to face a storm at sea, sea monsters, assassins, Amazons, a gorilla, lions, weird torture devices, gladiators, cave men and giants. I'm sure I'm forgetting something, but I don't know what. Best of all the whole thing is told spectacularly and with a decent budget, something that is missing from most movies of this sort.

My only complaint is that it gets a bit draggy in the middle for a couple of minutes, but other than that this is a really good mindless adventure.

If you want to see a movie with everything give this a try.
