not surprising
At first sigh, it is only another film from same period in nice sandals-and-swords style. and to choose Messalina as lead characters is the most simple solution for create a fake fresco of ancient Rome, a puzzle of orgy, crime, love, politic, mixing a beautiful actress with hadsome men and few dramatic scenes. because rumours about the wife of Claudius are so, so many. but , ignoring that details, three virtues has this film : the reasonable job of Belinda Lee, the decent effort of Spiros Focas to propose an idealistic character and, sure, Giulliano Gemma as Marcellus, more for aparition than the manner to play a small character. a portrait of Messalina in the spirit of a period cinema. nothing new, nothing bad. only just not surprising.
