Not Worth Its Weight 20 Sept. 2012
By William Amazzini - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Warner Archive has released Director Andre De Toth's 'GOLD FOR THE CAESARS' aka 'ORO PER I CESARI'- 1964, a film which hit theaters on the downward spiral of the sword and sandal genre or pepla as they were known in Europe. An Italian American co-production, it stars two actors Jeffrey Hunter and Ron Randall who were involved in another Epic lensed in Spain from Producer Samuel Bronston, Director Nicholas Ray's 'KING OF KINGS'- 1961 and has some good action sequences but fails to hold up its 90 minute running time due to its lacklustre script by Arnold Perl. Based on the a prizewinning historical novel by Florence A. Seward, it has Hunter playing a slave who happens to be a genius at architecture who is hired to oversee a Roman construction site and is promised his freedom if he can successfully deliver a gold mining operation. Unfortunately, he has hanky panky with the mistress of a senator played gloriously evil by Massimo Girotti who, needless to say, doesn't appreciate the lack of affection. In between the soap, we have some great elements interfering with the lovers: an approaching Celt army, Randall's equally villainous portrayal of a centurion working for Girotti and an avalanche at the mine. It may read well as described but it comes off as a really flat affair. Director De Toth, famous for having directed the Vincent Price Horror vehicle of 1953 'HOUSE OF WAX' in 3D despite having only one eye, does what he can with the script. Mylene Demongeot, who is very pretty, is wasted as Penelope, Hunter's inamorata and bounces back and forth in a tug of war between the male testosterone. Even the spectacular climax which was co-directed by Italian icon Riccardo Freda can't save the day. Although boasting a fine music score by Franco Mannino and nice images by Raffaele Masciocchi, the film emerges as a disappointment for both action and sword and sandal fans. Warner releases it as a DVD-R in a stunning 2.35 transfer with no extras. For Epic completists only.

Enjoyable without greatness 17 Feb. 2013
By C. E. Ramsey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Gold for the Caesars is enjoyable without showing signs of great movie making. It follows a most interesting historical novel loosely, and gets at least one historical event wrong. The Roma emperor who immediately follows evil Diocletion is old Nervii. Trajan comes later. However, I would watch it again for entertainment value.

Not his best, but not his worst my any means 31 May 2014
By Obsessive Cat Disorder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I found this an enjoyable movie. Not Hunter's best, but it is fun and moves fairly well. I would definitely recommend this. There are few 'great' movies, so I find it silly to even rate it against movies of that caliber. It is still entertaining and I have watched it several times.
Higher end of the Spaghettii Sword & Sandal genre! 7 Jan. 2015
By Leo Hott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
One thing is for sure fans of the Sword & sorcery genre or the Swashbuckler are not generally that picky unless the acting or special effects are so bad they crush all the fun out of the film we are pretty easy to please. All we are really looking for is some escapist action adventure to take us away for a hour or two on a rainy day! "Gold for the Caesar's" succeeds in doing just that. If you are familiar with the Spaghetti Sword & Sandal genre then you will be pleased to hear this movie is on the higher end of the scale compared to what you usually see in that genre. While Jeffery Hunter isn't sporting a Steve Reeves physique he doe's deliver as far as his acting talent. Most Sword & Sandal genre movies are very formulated & "Gold for the Caesar's" doesn't deviate as far as that's concerned. I think the most important thing for the potential purchaser of Sword & Sandal, Swashbuckler Or Sword & Sorcery genres want to know is what they are getting, is it the 50's 60's Technicolor epic style like "King Richard & the Crusaders" , "Ivanhoe", or "Robin Hood" or are they going to get the Spaghetti style like "Hercules" , "Last days of Pompeii" or "Giant of Marathon"& Gold for the Caesar's" falls into the second category. While not the best of this genre certainly not the worst either as I said earlier it is higher on the quality scale being more along the lines of quality of the Steve Reeves Sword & Sandal films instead of the hundreds of other Sword & Sandal film's centered around a muscle bound main character sporting some famous mighty man of olds name. "Gold for the Caesar's" is a fun film & as long as you know what your getting & are prepared is worth getting if your a fan of the genre. It is interesting to note that in this particular Sword & Sandal film the main character isn't a living special effect mountain of muscles but a man depending on his wits & skill set to survive which I guess is a bit of a deviation from the typical formula of the genre. Judging a movie not on its budget but its ability to entertain I would have to say this movie succeeds!
