Muscles and Spectacle!

"This spectacular entry into the "swords and sandals" genre of the '60s has been unfairly forgotten over the passing decades. Watch it and be stunned by the most handsome hero to ever grace the silver screen: Steve Reeves. In this movie, he has never looked so incredible--with his beautiful torso, that deep (dubbed) voice and god-like presence. The most amazing sequence in this entertaining film is the underwater battle between Steve's army of handsome warriors as they battle to conquer the enemy. How they filmed this would make a fascinating story since you actually see spears and arrows shooting through the water to injur and kill some of the good guys. If you're into beefcake, this is a fascinating two-hours of beautiful men in skimpy outfits. If you're looking for a fun two-hours of excitement and beautiful location photography, then this is also a winner. Now, just to find some DVD company who could present this in a restored version and not the washed-out copy that's now in Public Domain."
