Second movie of the Trojan is the second best of Steve Reeves career !
11 August 2010 | by (Malaysia) – See all my reviews

Wow! This is the only word i could describe. This is definitely one of the best peplum movies i've ever watch (only for Steve Reeves movies) so far. I've watched all Steve Reeves movies except 3; Sandokan The Great, The Slave @ Son Of Spartacus, and A Long Ride From Hell. So, from here so far The Avenger remains as the second best movie of Steve Reeves while the Trojan Horse remains the best. Oh wait! I've seen most of the comments in Steve Reeves movies are saying that The first Hercules movie in 1958 is the best Steve Reeves movie among all...is that true?? I don't think it is, because to me, i think it is only OK to watch, not very good indeed. Hercules Unchained is better than the first, but if you wanna watch something better in Steve Reeves movies, then check out The Avenger and the Trojan Horse. Others which is also good is Morgan The Pirate, Thief Of Baghdad, Last Day Of Pompeii, Duel Of Titans and Sandokan The Pirate Of Malaysia..try to avoid Goliath And Barbarians and Giant Of Marathon(not very good indeed,huhuhu).

As for this movie; sure it's not a perfect movie, but still i'm giving it a chance, so i'm giving it a 9.5/10 stars... :)
