My friend Wintle bought me a 50 pack of Sword And Sandal films before I left for Hollywood. He then bought a pack for himself, and we began discussion about going through the series together. Soon after we decided to share our journey with all of you; and thus the Macho Movie Review was born.
Over the next 50 weeks, we plan to have a short podcast for you discussing the Macho Movie of the week. We will be going through the Warriors Movie Pack made available through Mill Creek Entertainment. You can find the set for about 20-30 USD. We encourage all interested to buy the pack, and/or download the films that are public domain.
The Rating System: To go with the theme we will be rating the films out of 9. The hydra has 9 heads, so we will be giving each film a rating out of that number – and will post a picture. For those of you that wish to skip the podcast and are not that keen on buying the set – keep an eye on the hydra. If you you see a film with 7-9 Hydra heads – you may want to track that particular film down.
Today Wintle and I discuss the fifth film in the series: Two Gladiators
When Emporer Marcus Aurelius dies, his cruel son Commodus, a gladiator-prince rises to power and rules the land through treachery and fear. His days are spent feasting on wine, women and song while his subjects are forced to fight for beefy street rats. A Roman Senator, who years before had hidden the twin brother of the Emperor (after being told to kill him) now sets out to find him, with hopes that he can challenge Commodus for the throne.
Ladies and Gentlemen; it is my great pleasure to present our review of Two Gladiators:
