Plot: Aeneas leads escapees from the Trojan war to new land in Italy, and must deal with new threats to his people. The film is based one Publius Vergilius Maro;s epic poem: "Aeneis".
I found nothing special with the story or the film. For me it's average and does not stand out in the crowd of the 1960s peplum fad. It's far from awful but certainly not great. It does have some depth to it - most so than most of them.
This one is in B&W - so you won't see vivid or even faded colors in the film. B&W films are fine with me, some of favorite films were made that way.
