Editorial Reviews

It is the pinnacle of the Roman Empire, a time of mighty gladiators, lusty women, and a ferocious one - eyed monster that slaughters those foolish enough to enter his forest domain. But the corrupt Emperor Tiberius has a plan to please the bloodlust of the people: Capture the creature and unleash him in the arena against his condemned slaves, including wrongfully imporisoned general Marcus Romulus. Now the ultimate battle between man and beast is about to begin... and Rome will tase the full furty of hell unleashed.

Take a journey back in time, when Cyclops ruled the land. Roman citizens were not safe, herds were randomly decimated, and fear reined supreme...that is, until the great Caesar himself rid the land of the dangerous creatures!

Except for one. The last Cyclops roams the forested area around Rome, dining on unsuspecting thieves and brigands. A hungry trio spies a drying rack of wool, and pays for their dishonesty with their lives. Cyclops rips through two men, leaving one behind to warn the Emperor Tiberius. Corruption runs rampant through the Roman empire, and Tiberius, with his maniacal pattern of decision making and ambition, has run the gauntlet until his only the most violent `victory' games will do. He sends Marcus Romulus to capture Cyclops for use in the games. An enraged Cyclops kills many of the troops, yet Marcus emerges as a hero, inciting the jealousy of the Emperors' nephew. Popularity is no weapon against blind ambition, and the victory games pit man against Cyclops, friend against friend, and ultimately, freedom against tyranny!
This is one amazing movie. The CGI employed on Cyclops is remarkable, just as the costuming/props used on the Centurions is. A picturesque digital reconstruction of Rome serves as a suitable backdrop for this freedom motivated film. If there is any problem with the production, it is the Victory games pit used. I am not sure that an Emperor as fanatical as Tiberius is depicted as would settle for a small arena, but it does work in the film very well. Another realistic element is that of the format of the games with small side battles climaxing in a major brawl. The background element of the slaves being used in the games instead of building the nephews' villa addition is also factual.

Who doesn't love a good cyclops movie? I sure can't think of anybody, nor would I consider someone a true American if they didn't. Cyclopses(Sorry, I have never had to pluralize the word "cyclops" before) tend to only make fleeting appearances in a limited number of films, but thanks to Roger Corman's company, New Horizons, we get a whole film dedicated to a cyclops! And dig this, it actually takes place in ancient Rome! Throw Eric Roberts into the mix and it's a no brainer that you'll have to watch it.
In the film, a cyclops is posing a threat to Rome, so Tiberius Caesar(Roberts) orders it's capture. Hero soldier, Marcus, succeeds in capturing the ten foot beast, only to be thanked by having his promotion yanked out from under him and being accused of treason. Tiberius puts the cyclops into the gladiatorial games to compete with slaves and criminals who fight to earn their freedom or death. The cyclops is a vicious brute who rips people limb from limb, decapitates and devours them as well. He even bites off a kid's hand(he was asking for it though. You don't tease a cyclops)! As you might have already guessed, our hero Marcus will eventually be pitted against the cyclops, but Marcus learns that befriending a cyclops can be quite useful, especially if you're planning a rebellion.
This film was fun nonsense. Not historically accurate by any means, but why should it be? Roberts kinda sleepwalks through the evil emperor role, but that really doesn't bring the film down. Considering we're not dealing with a Schmuckheimer budgeted film here, I was actually quite impressed with the look of the film. The movie looks higher budgeted than it probably was and the set design wasn't bad at all. No, it wasn't HBO's Rome, but pretty good I must say.

All the grandeur of Rome..........on a budget of a buck fifty. What a spectacle. The CGI giant Cyclops was very shiny and new looking as he lumbered about the country side lopping off heads and eating the odd Roman who chanced to get in his way. All too soon, the poor fellow is captured and treated miserably. If he hadn't been the last of his kind, he could have unionized and revolted. Instead, he becomes a plaything to the reigning despot Tiberius Caesar (Eric Roberts). Forced to perform in the coliseum (not the big fancy one, mind you, but a teensy weensy version) battling desperate men chained together with but a sword and a shield to share amongst them. Naturally, there is rampant corruption everywhere and a sick sycophant (Craig Archibald as Falco) constantly giving his crazy uncle Tiberius a few too many bad ideas. Can the newly imprisoned hero Marcus (Kevin Stapleton) rally the troops and save Rome from the sadistic rule Emperor Tiberius!? Or will he be content just to teach his new buddy Cyclops a few key words like "meat" and "free" (although I'm almost certain Cy understood the idea of "free meat" right from the start when he learned that people taste just like lamb chops).

What a hoot. Though I guess this movie wasn't meant to be a comedy, nonetheless I found it funny. Eric Roberts didn't act so much as he smirked his way through the role. And poor Kevin Stapleton simply looked bewildered and out of sorts in a skirt while Craig Archibald sneered appropriately as the villain of the piece. No one looked too happy to appear in this one ring circus. Not to put too fine a point on it, this film is a hack job. Crap from the get-go. Nuttier than a fruitcake. Still, I couldn't help but muster a particular fondness for the mess they made.
