Format: DVD
"Revak the Rebel" is a 1960 film about an Iberian prince from Penda (a small island) where Carthage took slaves after defeating them in war, and Jack Palance (the prince) eventually becomes so bitter and bent on revenge that he never allowed himself to see opportunities he had for love and comfort; instead sides with yet another army that attacks the Carthagians - this time Rome. Starring Jack Palance, Milly Vitale, Deirdre Sullivan, Austin Willis, Guy Rolfe, Richard Wyler, Joseph Cuby, Melody O'Brien, and of course, etc. Jack Palance seemed more at home when (1961 in Italy) he made "The Mongols" than this film ("Revak the Rebel"); further known as "The Barbarians," "Rivak the Barbarian," and foreign titles.
Jack Palance reduced from Iberian prince to elephant driving slave, his sister having taken her own life to avoid being defiled by her captors, he learns how to win allies among the slaves and a few of nobility so he can hope to turn the tables against those who conquered his people - and along the way he makes one of the beautiful Carthage women interested in him romantically. Without Jack Palance's ability as an actor, this movie would never have been referred to in "Schlock! The Secret History of American Movies" as a newspaper article which calls this movie "Revolt of the Barbarian." This DVD movie may be where the adage came from that says, "The floggings will continue until morale improves."
This is meant to be similar in theme to epic films such as "Ben-Hur" and "Spartacus" among others, however, even with the presence that Jack Palance delivers, "Revak the Rebel" isn't quite at such a caliber. That said, the cinema version "Revak the Rebel" was shown in Denmark, Finland, West Germany, Spain, Italy, Greece, France, and of course in the USA.

I bought the Sinister Cinema DVD-R release of this film some years ago and was disappointed. The film was OK, what I was able to see of it. The DVD-R started glitching and would come to a standstill. I would like to see a re-mastered, clear, pristine version released soon.

I originally saw this film at the cinema back in the 1960's or early 70's. Sadly though the DVD suffers from very poor reproduction quality. The original film print must have deteriorated.
