Very entertaining spear and sandal film
26 May 2005 | by SkraggSee all my reviews

I've always been sentimental about this one, partly because it's one of the first "spear and sandal" ones I ever saw, and partly because it was one of the first times I heard of Atlantis (outside of the Sub-Mariner comics, and I guess, the Donovan song). Also (though this might be completely interesting only to mythology fans), it uses the name "Herakles" or "Heracles" as opposed to "Hercules". (Or was it the usual "Maciste", before the dubbing?). Anyway, even apart from the sentimental reasons, it's one of the more entertaining "Peplum" films. It had "pulp" science fiction, like the video surveillance and the army of androids. And it had an evil queen and a female army, which to me (though it might be called "misogynistic") is one of the better things in a story like this. (The queen was presumably based on the character in "She" - Helene Chanel even looked like Ursula Andress in that role.) And Kirk Morris always seemed very much at home in these films.
