The Invincible Achilles On A Mission
10 December 2010 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Fury Of Achilles takes the story of Achilles and highlights it from Homer's Iliad as opposed to telling the whole story of the Trojan War. It's a cut above the usual peplum pictures mainly because of the source.

Gordon Mitchell who unlike Brad Pitt did not have to bulk up to play Achilles he was pretty buff stuff already as that was his trade. Playing Hector is another expatriate actor Jacques Bergerac who was fresh from his divorce from Dorothy Malone and no doubt needed the money for alimony and child support.

Fury Of Achilles is hardly in the class of the recent Troy or the Fifties film Helen Of Troy. It was made with a fraction of the budget of either. Yet it told the story in a simple and straightforward manner and Mitchell was actually a creditable Achilles.

The Iliad and its characters are almost as well known as the Bible so the movie-going public knows what it expects from players who portray these characters. Achilles and Hector are larger than life and Mitchell and Bergerac show them as such.

Lovers of the classics might nitpick, but the public shouldn't complain.
