Storyline

This lost vintage feature film, 'New Gladiators', was filmed in 1973 & 1974 and was the pet project of Elvis Presley and Ed Parker; finally found, restored and released. The cast of this feature film reads like a 'who's who' of the martial arts. You will see Team USA fight at Wembley Stadium in London, England, and then very next day, fight in Brussels against the very best fighters in Belgium. This is not a 'how-to' video - this entertaining film features a great soundtrack created by David Crosby and Graham Nash, and is narrated by karate legend, Chuck Sullivan. Written by Don Warrener <donrw@earthlink.net>

22 February 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Elvis Made this movie and it isn't great but it combines the important things and it is really something else if you compare it to other movies of the sort.

Finally it became available after lying 30 in a truck, and i think the effort of bringing it available was the right choice, Elvis would wanted it and it is something rare.

I give it a 7 out of 10 rating because it isn't great but it is nice in it's own way and because Elvis made this movie possible it is a rare movie with original things in it. Good enough for me and i think that the majority of the critics agrees with me on this.
