Wow. Saw this one the other night on TCM. Ricardo Montalban's name in the credits was the main draw, and he didn't disappoint. Montalban sports one of the most ridiculous mullets you'll ever see, short Ceasar-style bangs in front and Shirley Temple-style ringlets in back. Bad. The whole thing is laughably poor. The dubbing is out of sync, the costumes are a mish-mash of every known genre, the sets look like they're leftovers from some Egyptian epic. That said, if you're an aficionado of bad movies, this one will keep you busily making fun of it from start to finish. Who knew that the ancient Babylonians were such a braless and breasty bunch?
