Tarzan VS Rome
20 April 2004 | by DarthBillSee all my reviews

Following in the footsteps of his pal Steve "Hercules" Reeves, Gordon Scott of the Tarzan films takes a stab at the Greek-Roman scene by playing an ungodly strong Prince who is determined to thwart an evil queen who looks like Catherine Zeta-Jones and her disfigured giant of a son Moloch, raised to be a reincarnation of a good with a wolf's head by the same name. Posing as Hercules, Scott allows himself to be taken "hostage" along with other people in a plot device clearly lifted from the stories of Theseus and the Minotaur and tries to earn the queen's trust but when he falls in love with the beautiful and good- natured Princess Medea, who favors letting the people worship the Earth Goddess and is only the step daughter of the evil queen who married her father the king (which makes her the rightful heir to throne), things get complicated.

Well done Italian epic with good production values and a decent performance by Gordon Scott as the film's hero. Of course, it's hard for me to rate his performance since his voice is dubbed over by another actor, but he appears to be in the spirit of things, along with the rest of the cast.

Scott later played Remus to Steve Reeves Romulus in "Duel of the Titans".
