Movie Reviews

Restlessly action
Angel G. Garcia | Madrid, SPAIN | 04/24/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"At first, the film shows two colossi (Bodybuilders Brad Harris as Samson and Alan Steel, real name Sergio Ciani) one against the other, as adversaries with endless fights, but later they will join their forces to stop the traitor and perfidious advisor Warkalla (Serge Gainsbourg very "versatile" in his real life). Romilda (Mara Berni), helped by Warkalla, has taken the place of her sister Mila (Irena Prosen), the true Queen of Sulom, who is now in the palace dungeon. Warkalla forces the imprisoned Mila, to know the location of the treasure of Sulom. But could Samson, his friends and the rebels faithful to the Queen stop the traitor Warkalla and his mercenaries from their evil purposes?. Yes, but after a gladiatorial event and some other entertaining feats. The nice Janine (Brigitte Corey) plays also an interesting role as the spy of Palace and later on will become Samson's bride. Not bad!!."
Good film

This is available from Sinister Cinema in a nice quality WIDESCREEN print.
this print Amazon are selling is poor.
You know where to go."
Another bad DVD transfer

(1 out of 5 stars)

"Samson is not a great Sword & Sandal movie by any means. The story is tedious and the direction is all over the place. The whole thing is really unsatisfactory. But even so I still enjoy watching it for the couple of stan-out action scenes. Unfortunately the few good scenes in Samson are barely watchable because the image quality of the DVD is so bad.

Why does Alpha Video bother in releasing such bad transfers and expect people to accept them?

Wait until a better transfer comes of these days."
