Storyline

Billy Hamilton, high-school football star, and his girlfriend, Allyson, are kidnapped from Lover's Lane by a pair of armed men who helicopter them to an underground location hidden out in the desert. At this location, "Queen" Diana forces Billy to become a gladiator in death-matches which are bet on by jaded millionaires. Meanwhile, the facility's guards use Allyson for their sexual pleasure. Billy allies himself with black athlete Lyle Wagner, kills Rex, the top-rated gladiator, and then leads a successful revolt which results in freedom for himself and Allyson. Written by dinkytown-4 of Minneapolis

Grade-Z at its Z-est!
2 January 2002 | by (Minneapolis) – See all my reviews

Here's a premise dear to the 15-year-old boy in all of us. A high school football star is kidnapped with his girlfriend and forced to fight duel-to-the-death gladiator matches run by a sexy dominatrix! It just doesn't get any better than this.

As expected, the resulting movie is one of those fun-bad affairs, with hokey dialog, cardboard sets, and hopelessly inadequate casting, but if it were any better, it'd actually be worse. (Still, one wishes it had shown a bit more skin since there are ample opportunities for displays of this sort.)

Kevin Walsh makes an enthusiastic though implausible hero. He doesn't look tough enough to win a food fight back at Sweet Valley High and yet here he is knocking off muscle-bound gladiators and subduing prison guards who want him to, shall we say, bend over in the showers and pick up the soap. Especially worth noting is the outfit he wears in the arena -- a silvery hot-pants affair such as might be donned by a drag-queen at a Salute-to-Cher Festival.
