30 Virgins A Year
19 December 2010 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Goliath and the Sins Of Babylon finds the legendary biblical villain a muscular hero in the person of Mark Forest battling for the autonomy of the Kingdom of Nephyr against the Babylonian Empire.

It seems as though back in the day this kingdom was a vassal state and was run by some folks who had a vested interest in keeping things that way. Babylon's tribute among other things from Nephyr was a thirty virgins a year quota they had to meet. One wonders how the gynecological examinations were to make sure that no false goods were delivered to the Babylonian Emperor.

In any event the giant Goliath trains as a gladiator and trains the other gladiators to fight. As in all these peplums naturally it all works out in the end.

Mark Forest is maybe the best looking of all the bodybuilders who were finding work in Italy playing classical heroes. But that ain't reason enough to watch this film.
