By the Gods!
Who are the good guys? Who are the bad guys? Well, at first it's easy to know but director Robert Aldrich tried to show that almost everyone had some bad in them...in a not so successful way. It's a film that pleased few : religious folks avoided it and fans of lurid action were disappointed by it. It wasn't salacious enough. I'm not much of a fan of it BUT I do love watching it because of the fact that a BIG chunk of regular actors of the PEPLUM genre worked in it. Since I'm a big fan of the genre, it's fun to watch the mostly sexy cast of Italian or European actors play part of the convoluted cast of characters.
