Nun Sara is on the run in Mexico and is saved from cowboys by Hogan, who is preparing for a future mission to capture a French fort. The pair become good friends, but Sara never does tell him the true reason behind her being outlawed.
A hard but mediocre cop is assigned to escort a prostitute into custody from Las Vegas to Phoenix, so that she can testify in a mob trial. But a lot of people are literally betting that they won't make it into town alive.
THE SEVEN REVENGES might not be great art but as a Peplum, or a Sword & Sandal film, it rocks! A combination of action that's full of energy and excellent production design make this a fun 90 minutes to watch. Ed Fury stars as an Ivan the Terrible of sorts and it's easily his best performance of his career. He really sinks his teeth into his role. Sporting dark hair and a pencil-lined goatee, the friendly and happy go lucky Ed Fury we're usually accustomed to seeing is gone, certainly with the fact that his character is more anti-hero. What happens to Fury is also a tad surprising, considering his career relies on his boy next door good looks. The gorgeous Bella Cortez also stars. The sets and costumes are excellent, so much so that some scenes were re-used in other films like Hercules Prisoner of Evil. This film is totally forgotten and yet it's one of the better Peplums.
