U.S. fans regard this as the last of the big Italian sword and sandal/muscle-man epics. It was directed by Pietro Francisci, who had started the craze with his Hercules (1958). See more »
The U.S. English language version has some major errors in the opening credits. Director Pietro Francisci is named Francisici, and the beautiful Fulvia Franco is credited Fulvio Franco, as if she was a man. See more »
This is another film directed by Pietro Francisci of Hercules and Hercules Unchained with Steve Reeves. This time Kirk Morris fills the role adequately but not quite like SR. It has the same style and some of the scenes are quite entertaining. Hercules and Samson battle with 1 ton blocks like they were rocks in the ruins. The palace in Gaza with the bolting doors is interesting. It is an Italian classic B movie, the type they used to show on a Saturday morning. There are some pretty scenes of ancient greek beautiful classical women waiting for their men to return on the beaches. Entertaining if you take it for what it is, another Italian muscleman fantasy. Not bad but not on video, look for it on the cable channels.
