Storyline

Hamilan, a cruel and ambitious general, murders his king and places himself on the throne with the former king's evil niece as his queen. He then wages war against his peaceful neighbors, killing their women and enslaving their men. A hero named Ursus appears at a tournament to challenge Hamilan's authority. Though victorious at the tournament, Ursus is arrested and forced to turn a grist-mill under an overseer's lash. Meanwhile, the former king's virtuous daughter, Diana, is tormented by her evil cousin, the new queen. Sentenced to a slow and tortuous execution, Ursus breaks free and a revolt breaks out. Ursus throws Hamilan to his death in a fiery pit and then Ursus and Diana enjoy the cheers of a grateful populace. Written by dinky-4 of Minneapolis

LIVELY SWORD AND SANDAL FUN.
4 April 2000 | by (CARDIFF,WALES.) – See all my reviews

Ed Fury who stars in this movie was one of the American bodybuilders who tried his luck in Italian muscle movies in the wake of the success of Steve Reeves;whilst his output was not prolific he did seem to have a modicum more personality than others of his ilk.This is apparent in this movie when in a typical plot for the genre his character Ursus fights to bring down a tyrant.That he succeeds is no surprise,what is a surprise is that this is a lively and exciting movie with some well staged action.A shame that the video versions are of such abysmal quality,there must be better prints available than the ones that circulate in the US.
