Force is always necessary . . .
Ladies, step aside . . . unless you want to experience men . . . real men . . . strong men . . . men who are braver and tougher and stronger than anything you will see on a wintery Sunday football field. Men who fight just to fight . . . men who vanquish their enemies and conquer their women. It is time for another of the famous Italian 'sword and sandal' adventures, with more testosterone pounding action per minute than any movie should be allowed without a proper warning. The story is a familiar one . . . a brave and mighty man has fought a righteous battle and lost, and now he and his people must flee and find a new home. Unfortunately the place they can settle in has a mighty man who will be the master of the area by force . . . honorable force and also dastardly underhanded brutal force if necessary. Our battle is between these two mighty men . . . a very clear good guy and bad guy, made known to us from the very first scene. This battle to the death will not be easy for our good guy to win . . . alas, he has just been defeated by another before trying to settle here. Now that you know how good the plot will be, please don't be frightened by the setting of the battle. Remember in high school when you had to read about the ancient Greek and Roman warriors? . . . . What? . . . . Schools don't make you read The Iliad and the Odyssey and similar tales anymore? . . . You don't even like watching movies about those ancient times? . . . Such a shame . . . you have missed some of the greatest story telling in the history of this old ball of mud we live on. Take a chance on this movie and see if you don't get your blood boiling before the great battle and virtually roar your assistance for the losing warrior of Troy, Aeneas, played by the legendary body builder Steve Reeves, who lost to the Greeks because of a big wooden horse, and is now searching for a new place to live. Great warrior Aeneas only wants to live in peace, but big man Turno, played by Italian actor Gianni Garko, wants to be King of the land, and he is afraid of Aeneas, the only man who might be better than he is. Turno will use every dirty trick he can think of to destroy Aeneas, and he will come mightily close to doing so. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter on it and enjoy the battle.
