One of the best intrigue/caper movies ever made! Delightful is the perfect word to describe this film that is full of sci-fi gimmicks, plot twists, slick and not-so-slick criminals, and gorgeous dames. Podesta is a 100% bonafide KNOCKOUT!

Storyline

In the late 1500s, forces of the Duke of Malaga topple the Sacred Obelisk in the North African city of Melida before they're defeated by the local Sheik. The Shiek's men then sail to Spain and kidnap the Duke's daughter, Isabella. Antonio, who loves Isabella, now travels to Melida with his friend, Maciste, to rescue her as well as her imprisoned father. They're soon captured and Maciste is forced to single-handedly re-erect the fallen obelisk before he and Antonio make their escape. The two men then seek to finish rescuing Isabella and restoring her father to his dukedom. Written by dinky-4 of Minneapolis

One of the Worst of the worst
12 February 2004 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Billed as a Maciste film he doesn't appear for 20 minutes and then only fleetingly until the last half hour. The film is more concerned with court intrigue in the Middle East instead of the actions of the titled hero. Its all the bad guy with the good guy coming in a distant third or fourth in importance. You'll forgive the lack of details but this is so dull and so lifeless it was a struggle to stay awake. Besides if I gave you any hint of the plot it might sound good and you might want to watch it. I would have shut it off except that I was waiting for Maciste to do something, and what little he did do in the final reel was so laughable I was wondering where the other three stooges were. On the plus side its well produced and looks good, but other wise its one of the most awful movies ever made.
