Treachery in the kingdom of Lydia
15 October 2006 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

The small kingdom of Lydia is in danger. On one side, the troops of Alexander the Great approach. On the other side, Persian king Dareios promises almost anything to make Lydia an ally. So far, Lydia was neutral, but now they have to make a decision whether they fight on Alexander's side or invite the Persian army into their country. Goliath ('Gordian' in the German dubbed version, boldly ignoring the title of the movie), played by Gordon 'Tarzan' Scott, meets Alexander (Gabriele Antonini) and is convinced the king will treat the Lydians well, but a lot of traitors at the court of the Lydian king (Massimo Serato) try to sell the country to the Persians. The original title 'Goliath e la schiava ribelle' (literally translated: 'Goliath and the rebellious slave woman') refers to the hero's love interest, a blonde princess sold into slavery.

Basically, this movie has everything one expects: action, colorful costumes, beautiful women, the tall hero, a villain you love to hate (Mimmo Palmara), thrilling music by Carlo Franci... no masterpiece, but flawless entertainment.
