sword and sandal spectacular
8 July 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

this is a spectacularly bad movie. a glowingly awful representation of the sword and sandal "epics" the Italian studios were churning out at the time.everything about it is cheap: the acting, the direction, the sets, the costumes. the score is the only saving grace. i have only seen it in its dubbed form which adds to the hysterical enjoyment of this nonsense. it made me mad that they even decided to dub the great Akim Tamiroff who contributes a cameo here as the great Khan. fortunately for him he's not on screen for very long and dies an unintentionally comic death at the hands of the enemy. favourite moment is when muscleman Ursus dislodges a polystyrene rock from the inside of a cave and great acting kicks in to exemplify his strength under the weight of his heavy burden. the film itself is a heavy burden, only watch it if you really absolutely most definitely have nothing better to do with your spare one hour and twenty minutes.
