| Battle royal!
This is a post-script to the sword and sandal era with the characters ( the strong hero, the evil but beautiful queen, the gods) rendered in a brilliant farcical way. a brief summary: all the supermen collide, fight each others for futile reason and become friends ..then fight each other again because punching each other is fun. In order of appearance : Hercules: the cocky and might son of Zeus who is lusted by the queen ( but he want to married the daughter.) and challenged Samson for proving he is the strongest ever. Samson, the favorite of Jehwa and the strongest man in the world ( being Hercules not a man but a demigod)..his wife cuts of his hair so the poor Samson lost his powers and go bullied by both Hercules and.. Ursus the gladiator: a giant of man, a violent bully with an enormous strength, upon him slight prevails Maciste: the second strongest man in the hero that lives only for defends the people from the force of evil. The movie is a comedy and a well done one. The acting is good ( the supermen characters are bit silly, all of them and the actors portrait they macho attitude very well)the direction and the script works. I wonder why the hell it gets a so low review.
