5.0 out of 5 stars He ain't a Giant, he's my oily-skinned, diaper wearing brother..., October 14, 2007
This review is from: The Film Crew: The Giant of Marathon (DVD)
A Film Crew movie with an actual budget, "The Giant of Marathon" stars the well-oiled Steve "I'm not Hercules in this one" Reeves. Unlike most Italian sand `n sandal epics, you can actually follow the plot of this one...most of the time...as Steve wins the Olympics, tries to bag a blond hottie, wrestles a bit, gets hit on by a Vulcan hottie, throws things, runs a lot, and finally wins the day, I think. It helps that the film is well produced even if some of the dubbing is poor.

The riffs by The Film Crew are top notch from the get-go and perhaps the best of all four DVD releases. Some of the references are a bit racy for the kiddies, but that's to be expected I suppose.The skits are fairly good, although I must admit that the picture of Bob Honcho (which is different from the other DVDs) is just too funny for words.

The Bonus Features include a sincere apology from Mike who still manages to insult a lot of people. And "commentary" from a Walter S. Ferguson who sounds suspiciously like Mike Nelsen as he describes different roles he played in the film. It's better than the feature in "Hollywood After Dark" and that's about it.

This is the final DVD of "The Film Crew" experiment, we'll see if they sell well enough for more of the DVDs to be produced.

Tidbits:
- This film is presented in the "widescreen" format.

- The actual title appears to be "The Battle of Marathon" which makes more sense since Steve Reeves is pretty big but hardly a giant.

- Although no one wears a bra, perhaps some of the men in this flick should...
