By the Gods!

An athletic Giuliano Gemma thwarts the bad guys with his acrobatic skills in MY SON THE HERO (aka The Titans)

I really have a love/hate relationship with this film. Half of it I love and the other half I really despise.  What I hated about it is the overacting, the overly comical approach to everything. I'm aware this was style the filmmaker and producers chose but it always takes me out of the film. There's a completely pointless bullfight scene that drags on and on. The villains are not very menacing. And the love story between Gemma and Jacqueline Sassard is annoying. Everything is *wink wink.* But Serge Nubret is great (he should have been the star) and the production is top notch.

I think all Peplum comedies are generally disappointing, especially this one.
