Goofs

Various scenes in the palace feature Vitellius ("Caesar" in the American version) and others drinking wine from brass goblets. It's obvious the goblets are empty; the characters gesture with them freely without spilling a drop, and at times offer views clear to the bottom. See more »

Above average sword and sandal
20 April 2001 | by MbarnumSee all my reviews

Mark Forest never looked better then in this lavish gladiator story. Maciste schemes against Caesar to free a group of Christians whom the emperor plans to feed to the lions. Above average peplum with some lovely color photography, nice sets, and well staged battle scenes...this one obviously had a bigger budget then most films of it's kind. A bit overlong, but still enjoyable as Mark Forest and others put forth some fairly decent performances, marred only slightly by the annoying dubbing.
