More than a Little Odd
25 October 2014 | by (Amarillo, Texas) – See all my reviews

Led by an attractive young woman named "Selina" (Spela Rozin) the Gameli tribe has wandered the desert in search of a land which was prophesied to them long ago. Unfortunately, they are barred from entering it because the only way to get there is through an extremely deadly pass known as the "Valley of the Thundering Echo". On top of that, a greedy queen named "Farida" (Helene Chanel) wants this land for herself and has ordered the complete annihilation of the Gameli tribe so that she can have it. However, the high priest of the Silver Temple knows all of this and summons "Hercules" (Kirk Morris) to guide the Gameli tribe to their rightful homestead. Now, as far as this movie is concerned I have to admit that it wasn't the best "Sword and Sandal" film ever produced. Far from it as the story meandered all of the place with some parts being more than a little odd. Still, it had a few good-looking women most notably Rosalba Neri (as the sorceress "Ramhis") along with the afore-mentioned Spela Rozin and Helene Chanel so I suppose it wasn't a complete waste. Still, it wasn't necessarily that good and I rate it as slightly below average.
