A Little Bit Funny
21 January 2017 | by Rainey-DawnSee all my reviews

Roccia and his band of merry gladiators are teaming up with Glaucus Valerius to overthrow Emperor Nero in a mildly funny and somewhat entertaining 1960s peplum. This one is about as cute and funny as the sequel Spartacus and the Ten Gladiators (1964) - that's not saying a lot only that the two films are about equal.

If you want a good peplum film then you'll have to look elsewhere but if you a lame dorky peplum comedy then you've find the right film.

The film is all that great but it beats nothing on an otherwise boring early morning.

3.5/10
