Goofs

When the Christians are sent across the arena to run for their lives and freedom if they reach the line on the other side, the gladiators kill them all from behind and from a distance with a javelin in the back, and they all fall forward on their faces and die. The next time we see them, they are lying in different positions. See more »

Quotes

Vibio: [to Claudia who's come to watch his flogging] Ah, mistress, why don't you come closer? It's hard to see blood drawn from that distance.

Not totally Revolting!
16 May 2016 | by meryltlkSee all my reviews

This is the kind of film , as a theatrical designer, I fast forward through to see if it's visually worth looking at--- I should say, I will watch a film no matter HOW BAD it is, if the sets and costumes look interesting ( and this is NOT a great film)--BUT--- This film is OUTSTANDING visually for it's over-the-top costume and set design (God, those Italians know HOW to do it RIGHT!) It was made in the, shall I say, "Golden Age of Sword & Sandal Epics" from the mid 50's to early 60's-all with bad scripts, bad overacting, bad dubbing, battle scenes-usually with someone revolting against a tyrant, some has-been American actors, lots of muscle guys and busty babes!--get the picture? Rhonda Fleming was one of the most gorgeous American actresses and looks fantastic in these luscious costumes and hairdos- 6 out of 10 just for the EYE-CANDY!
