Knockoff Quo Vadis
13 December 2010 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Ten Gladiators was the first of three films in a series of peplum films with the team of ten muscle dudes trained in the gladiatorial skills, who go around writing general wrongs. Here they are involved in the overthrow of Nero. No one paid too much attention to continuity because in one of their succeeding films they're aiding Spartacus in his revolt which was over 100 years earlier than Nero.

Dan Vadis heads the group of ten and he's built like and looks a whole lot like Lou Ferrigno. When I saw he was born in Brooklyn as was Ferrigno, I figure they have to be related somehow.

The plot is a knockoff of Quo Vadis with the Christian element only brought in at the last minute. There's a whole lot of grumbling about how Nero is running the Empire and plans are afoot to bring General Galba in for a palace coup. But Nero has his praetorian guard and these guys are nothing to be trifled with.

This film will make you pine for Peter Ustinov or Charles Laughton.
