Storyline

The ruthless Roman tribune, Vadio, joins forces with the evil Morakeb to take over the throne of Aristea, usurping King Krontal and stealing away his lovely daughter in the process. Meanwhile, Marco Aulo, now a Roman centurion, comes to Aristea to learn where his legions war funds have gone. Vadio has him framed for treason and is thrown into the arena to fight a group of six formidable gladiators. During the fights, Marco refuses to kill those he defeats until finally, he himself loses after exhaustion takes its toll. Admiring this man, the six warriors join him and together they escape Vadio's clutches and plot to free the kingdom from the two conspiring killers. Written by joeyc187

Best of the 'Seven Gladiators' trilogy
7 June 2012 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Billed as a sequel to Seven Slaves Against Rome, though actually with a substantially different bunch of gladiators (of the original seven only Pietro Ceccarelli remains, plus Roger Browne and Arnaldo Fabrizio, while Alfio Caltabiano has switched sides), this is the sort of non-stop romp which makes no sense whatsoever-where it's predecessor was reality based this one is quite bonkers and great fun.

It also features the unexpected return of the Mole Men (from the totally unrelated Mole Men Against The Son Of Hercules), or at least their identical twins with white fright wigs intact, who still live in a pretty impressive underground city entered via a trap door under some leaves.

In addition to the usual brawls this one does have a few original touches-the scene where the gladiators enter a palace all wearing false beards Is a classic, and a scene where they disguise themselves as dancing girls is quite unique!

In addition to Ceccarelli and Browne the gladiators here are played by the familiar faces of Harold Bradley, Mario Novelli, Jeff Cameron, Nazzareno Zamperla and Pietro Torrisi, with Dakar unfortunately only getting a brief but memorable role as their ruthless trainer.

Jose Greci, second billed as the love interest, barely gets a look in.

I have no clue as to why many of the familiar Italian cast chose to use strange Americanised pseudonyms, mostly adopted solely for this release, even in the films Italian release.

Played largely for laughs and with more money spent on sets and costumes than the other films in the series (or at least more leftovers borrowed!), this one is quite outrageous and enjoyably daft from start to finish.

This received a wide international cinema release originally, but like so many other sword and sandal movies today is sadly neglected, and the only DVD available anywhere to date is a rather good widescreen (but not letterboxed) Italian release from Eagle. Someone needs to get on the ball and realise that there is a substantial international market for a good quality English language release of these films.
