Storyline

Rome chafes under the rule of the Emperor Domitian and his Egyptian mistress, Artamne. A mysterious champion arises to fight against the Emperor -- a masked man known as the Red Wolf. In fact, the Red Wolf is Valerius Rufus, one of the Emperor's trusted centurions who's aided by none other than the Emperor's court jester, the diminutive Elpidion. Rebels in league with Valerius kidnap Artamne, planning to exchange her for two of their imprisoned colleagues, but Artamne escapes and soon both Valerius, (now exposed as the Red Wolf), and his fiancee, Lucilla, are sentenced to be immersed in a cauldron of molten lead. Valerius's friends, however, rise up to rescue him and to liberate Rome. Written by dinky-4 of Minneapolis

Pink wolf bites emperor
7 May 2008 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

The brave soldier Valerius (Richard Harrison) is unhappy with his emperor Domitian (Piero Lulli) who behaves like a tyrant and has 5 people executed before breakfast on a normal day. His Egyptian wife Artamne (Moira Orfei) supports not only all the evil ideas he has, but even adds a few of her own. Valerius secretly meets Nerva (Giuliano Gemma), and they start to make plans to overthrow the tyrant.

A really good, action-packed, typical genre movie - the only thing you could accuse it of is being a little bit "too typical", i.e. everything goes by the book of unwritten rules. Which is on the other hand guaranteed to please if you like this kind of stuff. Use of colors was a bit overdone here: Artamne wears different wigs - blue, green, any imaginable hair color as long as it looks false - whereas the costume of the Red Wolf makes him look like a pink wolf. Nice to see young Gemma in one of his early roles before he became a western star.
