COLOSSUS OF THE ARENA (1962)
One of the more enjoyable Maciste film has the right balance of action, comedy and intrigue. While we know everything is going to be alright- Maciste is Maciste after all, we can't be certain what is going to happen to him before the final fade out.
The film benefits from a serious production tat keeps the sets reasonable real and doesn't allow the proceedings to drift into the realm of outright silliness. The action is also really well done with the muscle man nonsense never getting out of control.
I really like this film and highly recommend it.
