King Bohlem, brother of the late Attila, reconquers former Hun territory. To secure this territory, he sends his son, Otto, and his nephew, Tharus, to forge an alliance with King Haadem, strongest of the neighboring rulers. Haadem, however, is just concluding an alliance with Kudrum, the ambitious son of a king hostile to Hun interests. To cement this alliance, Haadem has agreed to marry his daughter, Tamall, to Kudrun, but Tamall dislikes Kudrum. She quickly falls in love with the newly-arrived Tharus. Kudrum inflames Haadem's feelings against Tharus and arranges to have Tharus publicly flogged. Not satisfied, Kudrum then murders Haadem and has the crime blamed on Tharus. Tamall's love for Tharus is tested but then she comes to believe Tharus's claims of innocence and works on behalf of Tharus as Kudrum's forces arrive for a decisive battle.

Different names, same plot
22 June 2009 | by (Minneapolis) – See all my reviews

Having exhausted the marquee-appeal of such names as Hercules, Goliath, Sinbad, Atlas, Ursus, and Maciste, Italian film-makers turn here to Attila -- a curious choice given Attila's unsavory reputation on the continent of Europe. Perhaps to distance themselves a bit from this reputation, they begin their story after the death of Attila with attention now focused on his son, Tharus. (Historians don't seem to have heard of Tharus but, hey, it's a movie.) Desultory attempts are made to give Tharus some heroic luster but when these meet with little success, the plot moves into the usual mishmash of the beautiful princess who's betrothed by her father to a politically-advantageous marriage but whose heart belongs to a handsome stranger. There's the usual talk of betrayal and treachery, a couple of hand-to-hand combats, an assassination, a flogging, a hokey folk-dance sequence, a bit of cheesecake when the princess goes swimming, a noisy shot-in-Yugoslavia battle sequence, etc. These familiar ingredients aren't mixed into a suitable dish and no one involved seems to have much heart in the proceedings.

Lisa Gastoni makes an attractive but rather listless heroine. Jerome Courtland seems too mild-mannered to pass as a near-barbaric warrior and, at one point, he's stuck wearing a fur-trimmed outfit that might have been considered too flamboyant at a Gay Pride parade. He looks good, however, when stripped to the minimum, tied to a post, and lashed across his bare back. (Note the chest and underarm hair.) Mimmo Palmara and Livio Lorenzon -- two sword-and-sandal veterans -- do yeoman work in supporting performances.
