Fun, fun, fun in the coliseum!
8 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this film on TCM and was drawn to it. It really is a terrible film, but it is so bad it is laughable. This is a movie designed for MST3000, or maybe Triumph the Insult Comic Dog's attentions.

Years before Schwarzenegger decided to capitalize on his Mr. Olympia celebrity in Hollywood, other muscle-heads took a shot at the big screen. The results were mostly uneven and only suitable for drive-in movie B-film marathons.

This film is among the worst, which makes it among the best for comedy. (I saw the English-dubbed version.) The acting was amateurish. The dialogue (subtitled) was inept. Best of all was the plot. It really drove the humor.

Imagine the director and wardrobe head meeting in a costume store. The director says, "The gladiator must battle an animal in the ring. What animal costume looks the most real?" Apparently, the answer was "gorilla" and the gladiator scene wrote itself. Hilarious.
