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.

This Italian barbarian film is one in a long line of films starring Miles O'Keeffe starring as Ator. All this is very harmless fun that can be enjoyed by the entire family. Way better than those TWILIGHT films because it's more entertaining. Brief scenes of nudity may make it unfit for pre-teens, even though it is rated PG.

Watered down PG cheese barbarian movie. No blood, gore, or no nudity. This is as about as clean cut as a Disney movie and rip off story of the Conan movies. I enjoyed the other 3 films in this franchise more (Iron Warrior, Blademaster, Quest for the Mighty Sword). This one basically tells how Ator became Ator in a rushed uncreative way. He finds some blond chick and for some reason a Bear cub follows them around even though they never acknowledge the bears presence. The final battle with the Giant Spider is as about as scary as a Sesame Street character as you can see the strings of the puppeteer moving the spiders legs. Utter B movie cheese, I like B movies, but this one is mediocre beyond belief and has low entertainment factor.
