My favorite Sword and Sandal flick
11 August 2006 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

As a lover of Ancient Greek mythology, I should have been offended and disappointed by this... "multicultural" flick that mixes up Greek Roman and Israeli mythology.

The truth is, that I've seen this movie a hell of a lot of times and every time I see it again, I get to like it more! First of all, because it was made like a parody of its own genre, than a serious flick with just the good ( muscled ) guy that massacres a universe of evil hordes, in order to get his beloved woman back, or save his friends.

"Samson and his Mighty Challenge" for me, resembles the innocence, purity of heart and boldness, the people of the 60's saw heroism! The heroes were pure and honorable. Even in one of the last scenes where the four heroes battle against each other AND Nemea's armies, this innocence, along side with a humorous sensation can easily be seen.

Hercules and Maciste fight themselves, when two soldiers interrupt them! They instantly forget their quarrel, beat up the soldiers, smile to each other...and they begin beating one another, again! In my opinion one of the finest Sword and Sorcery extravaganzas ever made! An excellent parody, of its time!

10/10 for me!
