Wonder of it all
1 March 2005 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

You have to wonder what possessed the Italians to make all of these awful sand-and-sandal epics in the early-to-mid-'60s, but I guess it was in homage to all those American sand-and-sandal epics that served as Hollywood's effort to keep the masses from hunkering down in front of their newfangled TV sets in the 1950s. Just as the Italians would later crank out endless zombie movies after NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD and end-of-the-world programmers in the wake of MAD MAX. This particular cheesefest has not one but two musclebound Americans (Reeves and Scott) playing the legendary twins who founded Rome. I was a kid when all of the Italian muscleman flicks hit these shores, and saw just about everyone of them. Reeves as Hercules followed in the footsteps of Victor Mature as Samson, and then the Italians began copying themselves. The Maciste/Mighty Ursus/Goliath/Son of Samson series were all copies of their own rather unique Hercules movies, for instance. If nothing else, these no-budget, no-brain matinée jobs kept folks like Reeves, Scott and Reg Park (see his IMDb bio) working longer than they might have. Hell, Scott even went on to star in a couple of pre-Clint Eastwood spaghetti westerns.
