dynamo Rod Taylor in a witty satire
A comedy with Rod Taylor, Ed Fury, Gianna Maria Canale and Daniela Rocca, it's slapstick delivered in an inspired style, lighthearted, witty and good-_natured; though the English title markets this as a Colossus movie, it ain't that. The witty script, the Aussie lead, the modern score give it its flavor, and complement the director's obvious craftsmanship.

Rod Taylor was a remarkable comedy player, and here seems to enjoy very much his role, and is deliciously at ease. Ignazio Leone has a supporting part as the funny Egyptian who once appears rolled in a carpet … Ed Fury resembles more Dudikoff than Eastwood. Here, Fury struggles with a chained bear, which somehow forebodes his future trilogy.

Gianna Maria Canale had indeed a queenly beauty. Marilù Tolo has a bit part, and the feminine cast is an almanac of '60s starlets. The amazons are worshipers of Tanith.

The movie is actually better plotted than one with Ursus, way more carefully plotted; there's also a subplot with pirates. You will see that the interplay of the genders isn't absurd, and the amazons behave often simply like the girls. The idea of women's dominions, of the matriarchy existed before in the cinema.

I recognized the waterfall from a couple of kindred movies I have seen these days, one with St Constantine, the other with Ursus. Also, the tournament seems to have suited a somewhat zany idea of Antiquity …; this is the 2nd movie with tournaments from Antiquity that I see this summer, after the one with Ursus, where they put warriors from Antiquity to meet in tournaments.

Only For Those With a Funny Bone
While choosing slave boys, two women approach a runt...

"I am the god's gift to the women of southern Greece. Let's be off my babies. Y'all is my women now ..."

If that line doesn't tickle your funny bone ... Colossus will not reach you.

Melitta (Daniela Rocca) picks Rod Taylor (Pirro) last. And our heroes are left hot, horny, and hopelessly humorous.

Come on, if you like schlock, this flick will put a smile on your face and it might even make you laugh.

Campy fun with Rod and Ed
Taken within the confines of the genre this is a humorous silly adventure. What sets it apart slightly from the usual run of the mill toga films is an odd jazz flavored score and the presence of Rod Taylor at the beginning of his career. Within a few years he's be working for Hitchcock starring in The Birds as well as appearing in other big budget films like The V.I.P.S. and The Time Machine something that no one else in the cast or any other of these sex and sandal flicks ever got remotely close too. Taylor was always a big beefy guy but he is positively dwarfed by Ed Fury, who physique is as usual in awe inspiring shape. Loaded with homo-erotic subtext and dreadful dialog watch this for its camp value and a star on the rise.

"Your backhand is almost as powerful as your kisses."
Glaucus and Pirrus are two friends returning to Greece from the Trojan War. Glaucus, played by Ed Fury, is the burly muscleman, a good natured one-man army. Pirrus, played by Rod Taylor, is the smooth-talking con-artist, more a lover than a fighter.

The two friends are drugged by some shifty merchants and sold to the Amazons as slaves. It doesn't take them long to ingratiate themselves to the Amazons and eventually shake up the entire Amazonian nation.

I have no idea how anyone could watch this movie and NOT understand that it's a comedy. It's full of slapstick, puns, punch-lines, and one-liners. There's a crazy Egyptian inventor who adds more comic relief. The music is more often than not entirely unlike the standard peplum sound track, with everything from ragtime to jazz to cha-cha. As a matter of fact the ubiquitous harem girl dance is presented as a combination sophisticated jazz performance and a take-off on a Buzby-Berkley number. Since this takes place mostly in Amazonian society the roles of men and women are reversed and you have the men staying at home and raising the kids, cooking, doing laundry and gossiping about each other. In its own way, believe it or not, it's also, a sex comedy of sorts. (No really!)

Eventually the men and women realize that they are better off living together as equals, once they team up to fend off a pirate invasion and Glaucus wrestles a bear.

Anyone who has a genuine fondness for peplums would really enjoy this movie. It doesn't take itself seriously at all. Instead it pokes a little fun at the genre. It's just good natured, self-effacing fun.

The action's not exciting, the humor's not funny, and the "gay" jokes are bloody repulsive.
With a score that alternates between big band swing, boogie-woogie piano, Las Vegas-styled burlesque, and whimsical numbers a la "The Little Rascals," this is a film that does not take itself seriously. In fact, it is rife with humor—unfunny humor, alas. The screenplay is credited to seven writers, which never portends good things.

COLOSSUS & THE AMAZON QUEEN follows Glaucus (Ed Fury), the strongest man in Greece (Suck it, Hercules!), and his sidekick Pirro (Rod Taylor), a fast-talking con man, as they take jobs aboard a cargo ship. When they arrive at their island destination, the men are drugged and abducted by Amazon warriors, who take them first as lovers, then as slaves. When Glaucus falls for Antiope (Dorian Gray, sans portrait), the Amazon Queen-in-Waiting, this angers her rival Melitta (Daniela Rocca), who plots her revenge.

The movie's failed attempts at humor revolve mainly around slapstick that makes the Three Stooges look like Woody Allen. Pirro's manipulations are supposed to make us laugh at the gullibility of his dupes, but instead made me want to punch Pirro in the face. There's an Egyptian inventor named Sopho (Ignazio Leone) who is determined to free Glaucus and Pirro from their captivity. Using one of his inventions, the boomerang, Sopho accidentally whacks Glaucus in the head, knocking him unconscious while the muscleman single- handedly fights a platoon of Amazons. (Funny, huh?) Finally, we get light-in-the-sandals male slaves who are so accustomed to their captivity, they exchange recipes and complain about not getting their laundry "sparkly" enough. It's the kind of gay stereotype that went out of style in the '70s and today is just cringeworthy.

OK, so the comedy falls on its face. Surely the action scenes make up for it? Uh, no. The action sequences are as contrived and unexciting as the humor is unfunny. Meanwhile, the Amazon warriors wear black spandex-type uniforms that look seriously out of place in the ancient world. Not to mention that the reigning queen, Regina, has lipstick on. In one scene, a skirt-wearing Amazon inadvertently provides a glimpse of her 20th-century panties.

Do I even have to tell you the dubbing job sucks? They didn't even get Rod Taylor to dub his own damned character into English!

The Italian "sword and sandals" films that thrived in the early '60s always veered perilously close to farce. It was redundant to make a movie poking fun at the genre. COLOSSUS & THE AMAZON QUEEN tries too hard to be funny and exciting; it ends up being neither.

Hilarious!
The music score, which ranges from boogie-woogie to a sort of sleazy Vegas romance music, cues you in right away that this is not a movie to be taken seriously. Rod Taylor (as a sort of low-life grifter) and Ed Fury (his muscle-man pal) find themselves prisoners of a tribe of man hungry amazons. Gender bending comedy abounds (male prisoners who've grown accustomed to their fate exchange recipes and complain about not getting their laundry "sparkling", all with swishy mannerisms and camp voices --- very un-PC and funny as hell) along with low-brow slapstick. Viewers tuning in to a movie entitled COLOSSUS AND THE AMAZON QUEEN expecting thoughtful, serious drama will of course be disappointed. Those with more realistic expectations may find this a delight.

Zeus Is Unamused
I hate to say it but I believe Glauco has really done it this time. Zeus took away his wits already and now Glauco had the nerve to show up in this terrible "comedy". I don't think Zeus is amused with this film and neither am I.

It is so bad that I had to hurry up and skim through it just to find out if it was going to get at least a little bit better but it did not. This might have been funny in 1960, but I found zero humor at all.

This is an unfunny "comedy". I doubt if I ever try watching this mess again. At least there are 3 other movies on the same disc.

Poor attempt at both comedy and action.
What's odd for a film of this type is that it not only is a gladiator film, it also tries it's hand at bits of comedy. Sadly, it fails pretty badly at both the action and humor. The battles are badly staged, and nothing you haven't seen before, and the humor is totally unfunny, not even in a stupid sense. Maybe it was better in it's country of origin (Italy), most likely the comedic dubbing was added for American audiences. The plot concerns a Hercules rip-off named Colossus who is drugged and put on a boat for some reason or another. The boat lands on an island where all sorts of adventures between Colossus and the amazon women take place. My best advice is to avoid this, you can find better elsewhere.

Colossus And The Amazon Queen (Vittorio Sala, 1960) BOMB
This film is strikingly similar to (and, incredibly, even worse than) Terence Young's THE AMAZONS (1974), which I watched only last month. Rod Taylor, who had just become a star thanks to George Pal's screen version of H.G. Wells' THE TIME MACHINE (1960), unwisely chose to follow it up with this turkey; his performance is embarrassing – especially the lamentable attempts at comedy – and, in fact, comes off like a cut-rate Tony Curtis! Likewise, Ed Fury makes very little impression as the proverbial muscleman (and, presumably, the Colossus of the title – though his character is actually named Glauco, even in the English-dubbed version!).

As for the women, here we have: a rather unattractively made-up Dorian Gray (a regular fixture of Toto' comedies, though she also appeared in one film apiece by Fellini and Antonioni!); Daniela Rocca (best known as the mousy wife Marcello Mastroianni wants to get rid of in Pietro Germi's DIVORCE – Italian STYLE [1961]), whose character is constantly falling flat on her face for no apparent reason!; and Gianna Maria Canale (who appeared in countless sword-and-sandal titles but also starred in the first Italian horror film, I VAMPIRI [1956], co-directed by Riccardo Freda and Mario Bava), who's been saddled with the rather thankless role of the Amazon Queen who must fulfill her destiny by remaining a spinster!

Truly, this has to be one of the worst films ever - which prompted director Bertrand Tavernier, then a film critic, to call it "one of the funniest of Italian comedies"! - which, from the very first shot (in which a trumpeter loses his grip on his instrument!), gives you an idea of the clumsiness you are about to witness – with the inappropriate 'modern' score (including the dance routines that are a cross between Busby Berkeley and WEST SIDE STORY [1961]!) and the hilarious dubbing (particularly during the one scene where Tiberio Murgia, so memorable as Claudia Cardinale's jealous elder brother in BIG DEAL ON MADONNA STREET [1958], appears) featuring prominently among its highlights…er…lowpoints!
