Brennus, a stone faced golem of a man was a real individual. Here, played by Gordon Mitchell he is a frightening monster of a villain. Here at last is a bad guy who is the worthy equal to the type of hero that walks through movies like this.
Amazingly this film is wonderfully plot heavy. More goes on in the first half hour than most two films of this kind combined. You watch the movie because what is happening is interesting, not because you're waiting for the next silly bit.
If this should come on some late night, watch it, it'll hold your interest enough to keep you up until dawn.
