As Stale As 3 Week Old Bread
19 January 2017 | by Rainey-DawnSee all my reviews

The only thing this film really has going for it is that it is in the Peplum / sword and sandal style and category. It is not an Epic film. Peplum does not equal Epic, Epic does not equal Peplum. It is simply an adventure film that was inspired by the story Arabian Nights.

It's far from being good, it's worse than mediocre but it's better than awful. I find it barely tolerable. It's one of those films where my eyes are easily focused on the costumes and sets while my mind wanders off to another world. None of the characters captured my interest, so the story didn't capture me either.

It's a stale film, not quite moldy but definitely not fresh.

2/10
