Maciste defending the Christians against a nasty emperor
29 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

The film deals about Maciste (Mark Forest) , gladiator of Sparta , the mythical hero who encounters pretty risked situations while trying to win over his true love , a beautiful Christian . Maciste who is nicknamed Hercules in US must use all his strength to save the girl he loves from malicious emperor (Peter White) and the Pretorians captain (Robert Hundar) making a desperate bid to rescue the Christians . The picture is a undercover version of ¨Quo Vadis¨ but with lack luster and budget , thus our hero (Mark Forest) like Marco Vinicio (Robert Taylor) must save his sweetheart Christian of the Emperor Vitelio likeness to Nero (Peter Ustinov) and his villain guards chief (Robert Hundar, an usual of Spaghetti Western) similar to wicked Tijelinus .

The film gets dramatic scenes of gladiators combats in the arena and martyrdom Christians and stunningly cheap special effects as the shots and closeups of a giant rubber gorilla which is a man suited struggling against Maciste . The robust and strong Maciste or Hercules is Mark Forest in a wooden acting , he was a muscleman who left allegedly the sword and sandals genre for the Opera , he used the amount of money he made acting as gladiator films in Italy to study Opera , he currently teaches it in the Los Angeles zone . He was one along with Ed Fury , Dan Vadis , Alan Steel , Reg Park , Gordon Scott whom to seek fortune and fame interpreting absurdly muscle mythological figures but nobody topped Steve Reeves in popularity . The film will appeal to Spaghetti myth-opera although is a better than most muscle opera , thanks to expert director Mario Caiano .
