ONE OF THE BEST OF A MUCH MALIGNED GENRE
4 August 1999 | by (CARDIFF, WALES) – See all my reviews

If Steve Reeves had appeared on cinema screens for the first time in the late 60's rather than late 50's,he would almost certainly have become one of the action superheroes of the 70's and beyond.Appealing to the same sort of moviegoers who made the likes of Stallone and Schwarzenegger stars,Reeves had better looks and a better physique than either.He was unfortunate that he was active in a genre(sword and sandal)that had cult appeal only and did not have or chose not to have the opportunity of making films outside Italy. Looked upon from a present day perspective,Reeves has lost little of the attraction that he must have had for audiences in those less than sophisticated times.Because his films always took place in ancient times they have not aged as badly as films of the era with contemporary themes."La Guerra di Troia" is one of the best of a much maligned genre and as Aeneas,Reeves portrays a slightly less invincible hero than he did as Hercules or Goliath and his performance reflects this.He acquits himself well in this exciting and spectacular look at the siege of Troy.As long as action films are made,fans should reserve a place in their hearts for Steve Reeves for he gave us a taste of the sort of stars who would reign supreme 20 years later.Hell,even his name was cool!
