Unpleasant Sword & Sandal
9 May 2007 | by Maciste_BrotherSee all my reviews

I purchased the WARRIORS 50 DVD pack and watched almost all of the films and I have to say that FURY OF ACHILLES was one of my least favorite out of the whole bunch. There's almost nothing about it that distinguishes it from the average film from the pack. In fact, I can hardly remember anything from it aside from the fact that it's more serious, certainly compared to other Peplums which can only be described as lightweight fun stuff. But FURY OF ACHILLES is too serious for its own good and too convoluted and confusing. Halfway into the film, I forgot what was going on, who was who, etc.

Of all the Sword & Sandal actors, I always found Gordon Mitchell to be the creepiest. Aside from his physique, I don't see any reason why he kept getting work. Casting him as a villain made sense but as a hero? No. His hatchet face was way too distracting. And Mitchell was cast as one of the main characters here. Mitchell does give a performance of sorts, certainly compared to more lightweight S&S but he came across as a repulsively arrogant character. Not a good thing, if you ask me. In fact the whole film has an odd unpleasant & mean spirited tone to it. If you want to see a successful version of Homer's Illiad, check out Robert Wise's HELEN OF TROY.
