In Bucharest, Romania, the priceless breastplate of Attila, the Hun is robbed from the National Museum of Antiquities by a gang leaded by the despicable Marcus Cutter, and the curator Radu is killed by one of the thieves. Meanwhile, in New York City, the former assistant of Professor Radu, Dr. Samantha Gaines, is waiting for the valuable piece for an exhibition. The agent Jake Adams visits Samantha in the museum to tell about the heist and the death of her friend, and she tells about the legend that the breastplate would have the inscription of the location of the Sword of Mars, which is guarded by Cerberus and made Attila invincible. When Samantha's brother and addicted gambler Jack is kidnapped, she believes his debt of US$ 2,000.00 could be the reason, and travels to Romania invited by the evil kidnapper Kul Jae Sung, getting involved in a supernatural adventure with Jake.

I'm on a bad creature feature binge at the moment and although this is fractionally better than the last one I watched, Sasquatch mountain, it's still terrible. The plot is a ludicrous blend of action film, creature feature and mythology, with the mythology aspect particularly bungled. I may not have studied mythology in a while, but I'm certain that there was never any story that linked Attilla the Hun, Cerberus and a magic sword. The writing and direction are typically throwaway and the acting mostly dull. I have a soft spot for poorly animated CGI monsters, and Cerberus was as silly looking as every other Sci-Fi Channel beast. I quite liked it, but it was underused and even when it does get out for some people chomping, the gore is mostly after the event. Though at least there is some gore Also, the best action generally involves the bad guy, not the monster. The very scant gore and bad but fun creature effects are the only reason I'm giving this imbecilic snoozefest more than one star. That and the fact that I have seen worse. Still, I would only recommend this to masochists and boozed up bad movie fans.
