Customer Reviews

No blood, gore, or no nudity.
"Ator the Fighting Eagle" is a groaner.
It's just a little too tame for me.

1982's "Conan the Barbarian" was a mega-hit in North America and abroad and thus it was none too surprising that a number of filmmakers, from the low budget end of the line, pumped out many a similar effort in the early '80s, all attempting to cash in on even a fraction of its box office.

The Italians were especially quick off the mark in this way, as they produced several pictures in the "Conan" ilk before the year even drew to a close! One such film is "Ator: the Fighting Eagle" (1982), which was directed by the late Joe D'Amato (although he is identified in the closing credits under the pseudonym "David Hills" -- rarely did any American distributor want to let the cat out of the bag that what you are seeing is not an authentic American-made product, although the often shoddy dubbing jobs usually give it away). D'Amato's name will already be familiar to serious fans of low budget exploitation films, as he is known for "Anthropophagus," "Beyond the Darkness," and Endgame (1985) [VHS], among others.

Miles O'Keefe ("Tarzan, the Ape Man") stars as the title character, whose formerly peaceful village is disrupted and ultimately slaughtered when, on his wedding day, a band of marauding bandits from the Temple of the Spider God plunder and ransack and level the place, taking his bride to be captive. Edmund Purdom (of "Pieces" and "2019: After the Fall of New York" fame, and barely recognizable here) also appears as the mystic overlord who teaches Ator the ways of the warrior and introduces him to a nifty magic sword.

Love him or hate him, Joe D'Amato's contributions to the world of sleaze cinema have attained legendary status. He's the Italian director responsible for unleashing monstrosities like "Anthropophagous," "Erotic Nights of the Living Dead," "Zombie 5: Killing Birds," and "Beyond the Darkness" on an unsuspecting public. He also gave us such classics as "Endgame," "The Arena," and "Black Cobra". I could go on and on, citing example after example from D'Amato's extensive filmography. He made a raft of Emanuelle films, most of them starring exploitation favorite Laura Gemser. Spaghetti Westerns, action films, gorefests--D'Amato easily moved from genre to genre during his long career. By the time he passed away in 1999 from a massive heart attack, the man had moved into making cheap adult films. Despite his popularity amongst b-movie aficionados, most of his films still haven't found their way to DVD. That stinks, but it also means his fans move quickly when they see one of his films on disc. And here I am reviewing a classic D'Amato film, the underwhelming sword and sandal flick "Ator the Fighting Eagle". I actually saw this in the movie theater back in the early 1980s. I'm amazed it received a theatrical run.

Why? Because Joe D'Amato's "Ator the Fighting Eagle" stinks. Big time. The fact that a few sequels exist doesn't remove the stain this initial effort left in my DVD player. They'd leave a stain, too. Since I'm a fan, though, I waded right in and watched the adventures of Ator unfold in especially inept fashion. Ator (Miles O'Keefe) is born into a frightening world presided over by some evil dude that likes to play with spiders.

Miles O'Keefe stars as the title character in this Conan rip-off. Ator is the prophesied son of a god and destined to destroy the Ancient One. But his future and the mark of his destiny have been hidden by a mysterious warrior. On his wedding day, Ator witnesses the destruction of his village by the Black Knights, warriors from the Kingdom of the Spider. His bride has been taken captive and Ator swears he will rescue her.

Ator has a one track mind in his quest to rescue his bride. He trains with the mysterious warrior and sets out to the rescue. The evil kingdom is headed by a strange priest who likes to stroke tarantulas. Oddly enough, even though it is the Kingdom of the Spider, their symbol seems to be an eagle. Meanwhile Ator gets closer and closer and goes through typical sword & Sorcery trials until the final confrontation with one of the worst special effects in film history.

Miles may have a good build, but his hair has got to go in this movie. He keeps looking like he is in drag. During the wedding scene we see some very well executed dancing only to move right into badly executed fighting. This is also the only film I have ever seen where a victim is tied, actually tied with rope, to a spider web (what, it's not sticky?). In the end some viewers will have had fun with this one, either with heckling it or just outright laughing at it. But if you are looking for good Sword & Sorcery, this one is laughable at best.

I've always been a fan of B-movies from the late 1970's or early 80's, & "ATOR" is one of them! There's something special about movies from that time. Even the B-movies were bigger then life. It brings back a lot of childhood memories. In spite of the low budget, it's probably just as good as most of the computer generated stuff they make today. And, if you're already a B-movie fan, it has several of the classic, B-movie traits. There's beautiful women & plenty of action to entertain you. There's nothing really special about the story or the characters. It's just fun!
