After hijacking a space shuttle, a spy finds that the controls are malfunctioning and sees alien battleships approaching Earth. Many years later, when the arc of his flight path returns to earth, he finds the planet under alien domination.
....but don't expect this film to put much of a fresh spin on the sword-and-sandal genre. Despite Alonso's top billing, the lion's share of the action is still done by the men. And speaking of the action, it is not particularly well staged. But the music score is appropriately epic, the landscapes are sweeping, and there are lots and lots of extras. The story has some interesting themes (the transition from barbarism and prejudice to civilization and wisdom), but for the most part it's too episodic - there is not even a clear goal until midway through the picture. The busty Alonso does look spectacular in her green peplum bikini, though! ** out of 4.
